What would the TC6.1 equivelant to the TC6 black sway bar be?

I had my car setup per the original posting so that may have been part of my issues.

So sorry, that faux pas probably caused your car to drive like a turd. That's a big one.

I am not sure on the sway bars, since they work different. I am yet to try the new ones, and while I know I should I have not.

I would think the second from softest is pretty close, but someone who has used the new sway bars is probably best for answering this.

The 0.9mm (white) is closest to the old black with no collars. If you ran collars, go for the 1.0mm (blue).

Thanks Mike!

On another note, we have HEX hub spacers back in stock (5mm) and we also have part no. RSD027 which is a 4mm wide Hex hub, which allows you to narrow the front end of your car by 1mm on each side.

Decreasing width at the hub will actually decrease the scrub of the car as well, allowing it to react much quicker and drive more precisely.

I know this was addressed earlier, but what servo arm do you suggest running with the RSD6? Here's a teaser of my car getting ready for the Reedy Race.

Looks so awesome.

Well you have several options, and it depends on how fast you want your steering.

If you like neutral steering, we have a new servo saver set at the store. Part no. RSD028. This is a servo saver set and aluminum horn. It is an 18mm horn. It is essentially the same as the Tamiya servo saver.

On tighter tracks, I like faster steering response, so I run a Core RC aluminum servo horn. This is much longer and allows you to adjust the height of the stud. The taller the servo horn, the faster the steering. You do need to space it with like a 3 or 4mm spacer under the ball stud to get the steering link to come forward. http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...nwa-Airtronics

I like the Core RC one. By the way, got my steering link in the mail today. You guys are awesome! Hope to get a couple days of testing in this weekend before heading to the Reedy.

I am glad you got it. Sorry about leaving it out. We were packaging the first chassis for the guys that asked to get it sent out and we had not realized this with the first 6 cars that went out.

Please let us know how it runs and if you have any questions. I can't wait to start hearing feedback on it. If you enjoy driving the car 1/2 as much as I do, I'll be a happy man.

Default UPDATE ON RSD6

Just got word from the factory, the re-made parts, along with the motor mount brace will be done on the 19th of the month. This means, that sometime next week, they should hit the shop and ship!

Mine is on the way to Europe. Can't wait to try it on our low/medium grip asphalt tracks.

Would be nice to hear from US guys who already got their kits ... specially if they tried it back to back with the original kit.

About the top deck it would be nice to have different thicknesses let's say 2.0mm; 1.8mm; 1.6mm?? Instead of just different cut variations.
