Got my 6.2 running great in practice in VTA yesterday. A few small adjustments and it drives (turns) better than my old 6.1. Can't wait to see how it does today against the guys that drive TC all the time .I just drive this class in VTA everything is is pan cars for me.

Ran my car for the first time and the thing was hooked up. Excited for the RSD springs to come to try next time. Compared to my 6.1WC....I'll take the 6.2. The only down side would be with the new front bumper (not connecting to top bulkheads) I see a small deformation on the corner of the chassis. My fault but as I don't recall hitting anything hard and as for speed, my track is fairly small. Nice job AE...

I've been running the 6.2 for two weeks now.

The car is crazy consistant. Strongly reccomend everyone copies Kevin's setup to the letter. So easy to drive and fast. I've made slight droop deviations but that's it. Sell your 6.1,s gentlemen. This is not a facelift.

Well maybe Joan rivers.

With this car. You're the problem.

For my track the car has too much traction with jaco blues and kevens set up unfortunately but its a great starting point if only it was on a 6.2 set up sheet

Started with the kit 40 wt shock oil. Rear was just a bit loose. Thinking of going to 30 rear and 32.5 front. Silver springs. Running droop at 4 front and 3 rear. Rear shock outside on arm and top on tower. Front inner and outer at -3 and 1 in rear.

I broke the servo arm that with my kit. I put a Tamiya servo saver on that looks great but it seems like i don't get all the throw From it. I can physically turn the wheels more than what the servo is doing. What servo saver are most using or should get another stock arm?

From what I have seen, most like this guy if you aren't going to use either the stock piece or an aluminum arm. The AE one that comes on the MGT is another option.

I broke my servo (stripped gear) first run with the stock horn. I also run the larger RSD bumper. I put a large Kimbrough saver on and have the same lack of throw problem. I can only get 20 degrees, not the 27 I am looking for. I will have to do some more testing.

Also both cars at our club had extreme traction roll problems. I was running Kevin's setup, the other guy a completely different stock one. Any ideas to tame the extra steering with the car ?

Like I said in my previous post kevens set up has too much traction im running 1.0mm 3hole pistons 50front 45rear with a 15lbs spring all the way around I am running .25mm rear shims for the roll center and as for front im running .5mm less than kevins set up im also running jaco blues did you follow kevins set up 100%? I also lowered my camber links equally as much as possible also if you do this change your droop front to 2.0mm above ride height and rear 2.5mm above ride height
