I'm measuring from where shock mounts on top down to the chassis plate using a set of calipers.

If I have bad hardware I will find out when I convert over to the TC7 bearing caps, shock towers, and shocks. Question for anyone.... Will the TC7 bearing caps fit on a TC6.2?

EDIT: I posted over on TC7.1 facebook page. The TC7 bearing caps will fit the TC6.2. I'm looking forward to having a TC6.2 with TC7 shocks.

EDIT 2: I found out why the major tweak. One of the rear hinge pins was badly bent. I did the factory mod with tc4 rear arms and that leaves a lot of the hinge pin unsupported. I didn't notice the bend because of the spacers. I'll keep an eye out for this in the future.

Default LF chassis

I am looking for a TC6.2 chassis to run in usgt, bonus points if it includes a body. What do you have? Thanks.

Ps I live in Ottawa, Canada.

OK I'm stumped...

I can't find any dcv kits for this chassis anywhere. Is there an alternative? Do you any of you have a spare set or kit they would sell to me? I ordered some through hobbytownusa and waited 4 weeks with no eta. I gave up and got my store credit
Any word on restock?

Ebay has all the parts and pieces and one over priced complete kit. Maybe the TC6/TC6.1 CVD's will fit.

Sakura #SAK-X27 will fit (even comes with the narrow inner bearing). Only problem is the Associated wheel hex won't fit without modification. I used the 5mm thick ones for the Sakura Zero S (or XI) but they seem to be sold out. Some other brand may work....
