on a good note, I can see a lot of part in stock on team associated website, heard only a few minor things missing to seal the boxes and ship them !
Thanks Keven! Looking forward to new season and best of luck in 2014!

his car was definitely the best looking however it did look like he could use a bit of throttle expo, a bit slow to get up to speed is what i mean, you can really see this around the 4 min mark when the yellow car is starting to follow/catch up with him

He is an awesome guy and always willing to help out... Mike Haynes too. He put on a clinic with both his .2 cars. He has been on fire lately and I am proud to be a Fanboy...

Man I can't wait to get mine. It's crazy because I just got my 6.1 to podium contention level at my home track....lol. almost all the other racers have switched to Xray or ARC.







For On road racing I'm the only blue pit in the state of Georgia.

Default front spool cup durability?

has anyone tested the car doing mod? Is the front spool holding up to the abuse without breaking? I'm looking for a very durable car for 4.0 turn motors in parking lot racing.

very excited about this car

You must be running on a very large and smooth PL track to be using a 4.0T motor. I don't know if the 6.2 is still using the plastic outdrives but if you run the front track width too narrow, the blades won't last long regardless of the class.
The spool itself is fine but I prefer the metal outdrives for better durability. I pretty much only use the TC6 slipper spool on pavement exclusively as it has proven to be very reliable.

The Associated team has been running the TC6.2 in mod but from what I gather, most has been on carpet thus far.

The TC6.2 comes with a spool equipped with plastic out drives. Spool outdrives are stressed when you hit a board. The harder you hit and the more solid the board, the easier it is to break something. The power of a 4.0 is no problem for the spool. You are not going to break it unless you hit something.

For improved durability, AE now offers optional steel spool outdrives. These are not only themselves stronger, but the plastic blade which is also prone to breaking is eliminated. This will be your most durable spool setup and what most if the team drivers will use when they choose to use a spool.

You might not even want to use a spool. The use of gear diffs is pretty common for asphalt racing so you might want to look at that as an alternative.

Thanks for the clarification Rick.

I have actually had nothing but trouble with the plastic outdrives breaking blades. Even during a clean run one would fail. Is this a symptom of the track width in the front being too narrow? I quit using them before testing a little shimming of the arm mounts. Once I switched back to the diff or slipper spool, the problem went away. I know I'm not the only one with this problem. I usually run the diff for 17.5 but prefer the spool for mod.

If the blades are bottoming out when the front end is too narrow they might break.
