I'm trying to find 3 x 6 x 2.5mm shims to fit the TC4 rear arms on my 6.2. Anyone know who has them and what part # they are?

Sorry for the stupid question here; pretty sure I have it right though.

I have the RSD c-hubs preset at 4deg. I almost missed it but one is designated left and the other right; so which left is it? If you were sitting in the car the left C-hub would be your left; conversely the right c-hub is your right; again if you were sitting int the car most likely looking at an x-ray in the rear view mirror. That's the way I have it right now.

You have it correct... Left and right as seen from the driving seat or with the rear of the car pointing towards you.

So what are the gains of the of using the tc4\5 parts on a 6.2. I ask this because I'm seeing how this setup would help in 17.5

Check some pages ago. I made the conversion with the help of Randy and wrote down my experience.

What's a good starting setup for a very tight indoor carpet track? 9 second laps for USGT...

New to on road. Question, and sorry if its already been covered.

Where are racers putting weight in the cars to meet minimum weight and are you achieving 50/50 front/rear and crossweights?

When I weigh my car I am still short on the RF and LR and it has about 54/46 crossweight

Could you post pics of where you had to put weight at?

Thanks in advance!

It is not easy to tell where to place the weight as it depends on the electronics and battery you use.
I run a 7000mAh Reedy lipo (connectors in front) with LRP Flow, Sav÷x low profile, Sanwa receiver and X20 17.5t.
My car is now perfectly balanced. I used corner weight scales without springs on the car to make sure the overall car is straight and then with electronics I needed to add around 27gr. between motor and esc.

Something new to replace the stock floating servo mount top plate.
Much stronger, 3mm thick carbon fiber mounting plate designed with additional strength and rigidity. Shortened crank posts to decouple the steering assembly from the chassis that minimizes steering input due to chassis flex. Directly replaces the stock components with no modifications.
Please PM me for more info.
