I dont understand why anyone would want to try to upgrade their TC6.1. It would cost you as mush as a new kit. Every piece of aluminum and CF is different aside from the shocks and tie rods.

Hmm, excellent job on the steering system - should have less slop and that servo ain't moving.

Was just wondering if it would be cost effective to upgrade or sell off the old cars
And start all over after looking at the manuals it looks like the entire drive line is the same and about 90% of the plastics so if all I need is chassis /towers /aluminum then it might be a easy upgrade and I don't have to spend another
$1600 on cars but if not I guess it's time to go to the bank lmao one way or another I gotta have the new cars

I see that the carbon front & rear shock towers are completely new design.

With the VCS3 shocks remain the same as TC6.1, wonder what they are trying to achieve with the new shock towers???
