Saturday was a bit of a rough day for sure, but I bounced back to qualify and finish 2nd.

Got the car working pretty well, and happy to continue to move forward with the car!

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.
Got to check this out in person last weekend and this is definitely a durable/ridgid looking piece!

Thanks for the nod, Randy.

Just to be clear... I'm just sharing my ideas with my fellow AE enthusiasts and not using this thread to advertise a product. That would be against the forum rules and I wish to treat this venue with the utmost respect. However, if anyone would like to learn more about the specificity of the items I have designed or share some insight with me directly, please feel free to PM me anytime. I'm always eager to talk about innovative solutions to problems we can all benefit from.

So, I bought the RSD light weight suspension, is there a base setup for carpet out there? I'm looking for shock to arm position or all suggestions if anyone can chime in.

I started from the outer most hole testing. Got comfortable with position 'C' and it seemed to give me consistent traction. I ran a modified version of a setup that Christian posted on the RSD thread. Here is mine:

Front:
Piston 3x1.15
Oil 32.5wt
Shock position OOXO OXOO
Arms: RSD "c" position
Suspension mounts:
FF: ( ..)(.. )
FR: ( ...)(... )
0.5mm under all suspension mounts

Spool
Yokomo Blue
Short camber link. 0 outside 2 mm inside
WB 1mm short from std.

Rear:
Piston 3x1.15
Oil 32.5wt
Shock position OXOO OOXO
Arms: RSD "c" position
Suspension mounts:
FR: ( . )( . )
FR: ( . )( . )
0.5mm under all mounts.
Yokomo Black
1000cst rear diff
Short links 2mm inside 1mm outside

I got to run my car for the 2nd time yesterday. I went 17.5 as the track is pretty small but It worked really well. This was my 1st pack. I needed to get my gearing set.

looks pretty good...look like it was a little loose in the rear at times.

Also it seem to be a little flat on the back straight.

What esc/motor/fdr are you running?

Yeah, It was brand new carpet. It was a tad loose but bite picked up as the day went on. I was running a D4 short stack motor. It was flat. I was having a problem with heat as it was 95 degrees in the building and absolutely no breeze. I wound up running 100/48 with 48 degrees of timing and got the motor temp to 190. Im putting a fan on the motor next time out. It was only my 2nd time out with the car and my 2nd pack on this layout so im still finding its sweet spot for set up but overall, It was really good. Especially once we got a little traction in the track.

I have a question for the Associated TC6 faithful; should I get a 6.2 over its competitors, and is there going to be a special edition or a 6.3 in the near future that would make me hold off on getting a new car for a while?

For background, I had an original TC6, and it was garbage to me, inferior in every way to my ancient Losi... BUT, most of the problems were in the steering and suspension arm mounts, which have been fixed in the new car so it makes me give it a second look. I have also seen and appreciated the work done on the HPI Pro 5 concept car, the Mi5, and others, so I am really entirely on the fence and don't know what to do, except that I think I need a new touring car.

If you want to race competetivly I would suggest to wait for the 6.3/7 or to go for a T4'15.
The car out of the box is ok but lacks the final speed and consistency.
The 6.3 or 7 should be out between november and january if AE stays in its usual rhythm.

Hey, I have been car testing a few different brands and had a opurtunity to pick a 6.2 up for a good price. I can tell you I am quite surprised how well the car runs, even without the DJC. The car is as competitive as any of the others out there. The only mods I did to the car are the ones Chris Granger posted with the flipped steering assembly and the seperate steering from the servo mount. Im on carpet and run the Yokomo springs, just tightening the lower coil to the lower spring support. The car is one of the easier ones to drive that I have, not necessarily the single fastest lap car of the bunch I have, but its so close and a lot more consistant. (I know you from the MHIC races and IIC)

Default Shimming the RSD Arms

I have the RSD arms, I am shimming +3 on to the original spacers, so that makes 4mm front, 5mm rear of the arms.

I may be going crazy but the right side is going to take an additional shim of some sort; I put a king pin shim but there was still a tiny play on that arm. The other arm is fine.

Has anyone seen this inconsistency? It kinda unerves me that one arm spacing to make the rsd arms work is a fraction of a millimeter (it might take 2 shims)

Maybe something is worn out, any thoughts?

Double check to make sure the pivot block inserts are fully pressed in. they can be a little tight sometimes.
