Spent some time comparing TC7 setup sheets with TC6.2 ones.

Apart the obvious changes there's some that would help the TC6.2 without changing parts. I see the box setup calls for short camber links all around, lessening roll. I will definitely try that and report back ASAP.

Hi Zach,
if you are still looking for a roller and if you don't bother shipment from Germany, I would have one to offer.
PM me for photos.

I have 2 TC6.2 one for USGT and one for VTA. The USGT car is on point. Both have stock set ups under them. The VTA wants to spin out entry to mid corner. I have gone as far as Gold springs up front (since the body and car weighs more) and same results. I am just simply not able to push it like I can my GT car and yet its slower?

Anyone have any thoughts?

You might have a bad bearing in one of the rear wheels.

I had a similar problem with my TC6.2 on high grip carpet using RideRex30.
I tried a lot of setup changes, but nothing really helped.
Finally I used additive on the front tires only on the inside half of the tires. As well the side walls of my tires got glued step by step by regluing the tires quite often.
I don't know, which one of both (half additive or glueing the side walls), but finally the problem was gone.

Front or rear?
Was it broken or you just replaced it by try and error?

Since the rsd hubs and arms are not available anymore; is there any other c-hub that would work? yokomo BD7 perhaps?
