Are you saying there are no team drivers at your local track or that you are not aware of who the team drivers are?
Here is a partial list:
  • Keven Hebert
  • Rick Howart
  • Gonzalo Cortez
  • Ryan Cavalieri
  • I think Steven Weiss is still with AE

Oh... and I believe Randy Caster is in team colors again too.

Well now that My (in my opinion) full floating servo mount idea is popping up for most other brands, it's time for some AE lovin.
When I first saw everyone cutting their 6.2 servo plates I was like "that only solves one problem". So I floated the post from an un-cut servo plate and it worked much better until I hit a board. You can guess what happened.
This lead me to think that if I can make this structure stronger, it might just work! I've started seeing the same idea popping up from other aftermarket folks but once again, nobody was supporting the TC6.2. I have finally found the time to prototype a new one.
Have a look...

I will at the very least have some plates at the REEDY next week. Still waiting on feedback from the machine shop for the shorter pivot posts.

Yeah... I had been pondering this design for a couple months and now that I see a trend starting, I thought I had better finish it. Between work and moving, I simply haven't had the time to devote to RC lately.
the cool thing is that this can be adapted to the TC6 and TC4 conversion I have in the works. By the way, I was running my TC4 prototype in 17.5 last Sunday. It still needs some work to make it fast but it handled really nice. That's what kept me out of trouble and went from last to third. Nobody was gonna catch you though...

Thanks for the list, as I watch the races on youtube (BRCA or Yokomo Euro Touring Series) I haven't seen anyone with a TC6.2 I think I'm the only one at my local track.

How do you get 1200 cst diff oil? I am assuming most people are mixing it but what is the technique? How do you calculate the CST and repeat it after you rebuild your diff?

For those running in USGT, do you start with Andrew Cartwright's setup and adjust from there?
Myron, I'm particularly interested in your setup.

ETS races look for Juho Levanen, closer to home on the east coast you also have Jeff Cuffs and Mike Haynes.
