Thanks for the answer.
How do you measure ? From end to end ? Or from hole to hole ?

Awe man, I looked at it at Amain, and I think it broke.

The front end is about as strong as wet paper mache.

Yes, a new kit is coming.
I did the same. 1 week after I bought my 6.1, the 6.1WC came out.

I got the Reedy 17.5 1s for this car. Does one gear the same way, around 4 or do they gear a tad lower given the higher rpm in this car?

For anyone holding onto their 6.2 looking for an aluminum chassis I have an Avid chassis with 4 days on it still in very good condition. About a .2mm bow front to back but still sits flat side to side, flattens out fine on droop blocks. One small scuff on the chamfering at the bottom, other than that just worn anodizing from the droop screws. $50 shipped in USA just PM if interested.

Getting my TC6.2 together as my new VTA ride, a couple questions came up...

Question1: the eccentric cams that adjust belt tension and diff height...MY 6.2 manual lists the part numbers for the old TC5 pieces, the inner and outer sold separately. I'm pretty sure my 6.1 calls out the same pieces. NOW the 6.2 manual I just referenced lists a different part number for the cams AND both the inner and outer pieces are sold all together under one part number. Is there actually a difference with these cams on the 6.2 or are they just packaging the old parts together the way they always should have been?

Question 2: what is the deal with the .5mm shims spacing all the suspension mounts up from the chassis plate. What are these actually doing (other than making service a PITA)?

Question 3: a bit more "general" than the other questions, but what is the effect of raising and lowering the differential relative to the chassis? Trying to get the axles as straight as possible at your "selected" droop setting and ride height, or is there more to this? Differential height is not addressed in any of my setup guides (but then again neither was arm sweep...).

Thanks!!

#1 If I remember correctly the new number has more adjustment range than the older cams.

#2 It changes the hinge pin height which affects the roll centers. basically its part of the set up. We have optional CF ones that are one piece and slotted to slide under the arm mount. Less PITA.

#3 Raising and lowering the diff affects the car under braking and acceleration. You already mentioned getting the bones lining up with the out-drives. When they don't line up it makes the cars attitude change on power and off. For instance we used to run the front diff higher than the rear as it tended to help the car steer a little better out of the corner under power. Now we mostly just run med low front and rear.
