Is this true for both the 6 and the 6.1 or just the TC6?

Both. You can also drill out your front hex hubs with a 5mm drill bit. Being aluminum, it should not be too hard to do it.

Thanks Christian... looked up the part's in both manuals and found they were the same right after posting. For anyone looking to order hexes, the stock Associated hexes are 5mm.

The RSD DCJ's work with both the TC6 and the TC6.1 so long as you are using a 5x10x3 bearing in the TC6 and a 5x10x4 bearing in the TC6.1. Slight modification to the caster blocks is needed.

You must also use a Hex Hub adapter with a larger axle hub opening like the ones for the HB TCX, Yokomo BD-5 or 3Racing Sakura line of vehicles.

So, because the TC6.1 bearing are a little thicker, is the crush tube thinner, or is the steering knuckle a little wider?

Can I use the TC6 steering knuckles with the TC6.1 bearings and crush tube?

The width of the knuckle is the same. The 6.1 has wider bearings and thin crush washer. The 6 has narrow bearings and thicker chush washer. 6.1 bearings will not fit 6 knuckles.

Default RSD6 First Look!

I am leaving you with some first pics and a little report on the new chassis:













I tested the car yesterday on our local asphalt track. There were a couple of things of note:

-The car is more responsive, it switches directions much easier. It seems as the decreased chassis width drags much less, which allows to change directions quicker.

-The narrower chassis design allowed me to set the car up softer than the TC6.1 std chassis. This in turn, allowed me to set the car up with softer springs. The softer the springs, the better, has always been my motto. Softer springs allow the car to accelerate faster as the car becomes more bump compliant. The RSD6 accelerates much better than the TC6/TC6.1

-The Dual belcrank steering makes the car much easier to drive. MUCH EASIER. The car is more neutral when set-up for aggressive, tight corner steering. Gone is the "edginess" of running low ackerman settings to get around really tight hairpins. It is nice that I can adjust my ackerman in 0.5mm increments now. I LOVE playing with ackerman.

-The increased flex at the bulkheads made the car dialed with Solaris Hard tires. Typically we have an open tire rule at our club. While everyone was on open tires, I reverted back to a "spec" type tire. My car was the fastest by 2 tenths of a second on spec tires (while it typically is 2 tenths slower with spec tires). What I do need to mention is that the grip was "weird" at the track yesterday. My car was the only one to make consistent grip. Maybe the Solaris tires were simply better last night.

Keep in mind this is a prototype, so a few changes will be made before production. We are re-positioning the servo mount to fit a servo saver better. We are also making some additional cuts at the rear. Pre orders will go up soon, if you are interested, please go ahead and order one. We are not making a whole lot in the first production run.

Looks very nice. I like the servo mount solution.
