Just want to give a feedback to the before shown conversion:
The weather in southern Germany was cold and cloudy, but allowed about 4-5 runs before the rain soaked the track.
After one initial run with my T4'15, I changed to the 6.2. It was a different experience to what the 6.2 was before! The rear is planted, even in fast direction changes, but follows the front nice. If it starts to get loose then in a soft and easy to control manner.
The front is better in corner entry and much better in the middle.
11.79s was my best lap so far this year in warmer, higher grip conditions. Today I drove a best lap of 11.6s and was consistent in the 11.7-11.8s range for the whole run. The conversion gave me an easy, consistent and fast car!

Let me say thank you to Randy and Sean for helping me to realize the conversion in every detail

Do you or any of the team guys know if this setup works on carpet or is it strictly for asphalt? Also, is there any way you could give a parts breakdown as to what was used? I know TC4 rear arms and Yokomo sway bars...

This suspension parts will work on carpet too. Of course you will have to adjust droop, camber, diff oil, or whatever for the specific track.
I used:
TC4 rear arms graphite
TC5 front arm hard
TC5 4* C-hub hard
TC5 inner sway bar mounts 1 dot x4
Yokomo BD7 rear hub
Yokomo BD7 rear swaybbar set
and
a lot of 3x6mm shims (you need 12 3x6x2.5mm for the shimming of the rear arms)

That is all.

Default TC6. 2,5

I have using this modification since one year, and the improvement is huge ....
(TC5 arms in the front, Spec R arms in the rear, and yokomo bars)

I don't know if it is the size, the rigidity or the weight that is making the different but it is realy better

This is my actual setup:



The servo mount brace setup is different from Randy Caster and Ryan Cavalieri. They use a floating steering.

Why is AE going backwards 10 years or so to make "today's" car perform? If they really want to go retro with their tc....why not revamp the tc4's drivetrain with a lower internal ratio and sealed gear diffs! The definitely have the car to do battle with that other "A" car so why not freshen it up? (Hey Bob, you listening? Lol..this Pete from florida aka the guy in the green shirt). Heehee

It's not a case of "going backwards" It's about testing to go forwards. If you want to test a wishbone that is different length to your standard one, and you already have one that happens to be the length that you want to test, then surely that's the one that you're going to test?? The TC4 rear arm is shorter than the stock 6.2 and the TC5 front arm is longer than the stock 6.2.

@Randy: If you stop by, feel free to check for mistakes or strange settings. Thanks!

Edit: Just found one myself... Rear inner armmount insert should be -3dot (not +3dot).
thats a nice setup sheet ! did you make it or is there a new AE one ?

No, it was Arn0 (Arnaud) from petitRC idea to arrange it new to make it overall more clear to read.
