I also noticed that even with the collars all the way up my ride height would not go below 5.5mm. For my track 5.5 is where you want to me but I still would like to know what is the best way to get the yokomo springs to work on the TC6 shocks? Note: I have not tried Reflex's new TC6.2 springs yet. I will order them soon.
To get RH with more adjustment..Take shock end(Tie rod end) and trim 1MM off end. That will give you all the adjustment you will need. Doing that will lower shock spring retainer.

The new setup sheets are kind of confusing too because they indicate inner and outer arm mounts for the arm mount inserts. Iím assuming inner means the mounts toward the centre of the carÖ What affect does changing the arm mount inserts in the front have, why not just adjust steering links?

Anyone else confused about this?
On the rear there is 3* toe in chassie design layout. So with 1 dots there will be 3* in the rear and 0* up front.

Man do i feel dumb....... I mean that was so obvious that I'm almost embarrassed that i posted the question. .....

Any way thanks John I will do that. Has anyone tried the new reflex springs and does anyone know the release date of the Associated DCJ drive shafts?

I personally run the spring perch from Reflex for the TC6. Top adjuster I run stock.

Yes, Those are what I'm using.

Just use a dab of glue when the inserts meet the housing sides.

The outer insert holder is wider than the front thus giving it toe if you go to the back of the book and read on thr arm position it says thay if you have the same insert in the front and back of the rear than you have 3 deg of toe if you have a 1 and 1 and you go to a two on the inside you now have taken away .5deg of toeso a total of 2.5deg of toe in the car it explains that each insert is worth .5deg over the previous on

Correct..Like I said the 1 dot is 0* + add the 3* on the chassie design and that is 3*..I personally run 1 dot on rear and 2 out in front of rear arm for 2.5* rear toe. The Outer mounts are std front and rear they are the same. The rear toe is drilled into the chassie rear inner mount location design NOT the mounts..The mounts are used to adjust the amount of rear toe or front sweep with the inserts.

Example- Front Inner mount 1 dot and front outer mount 1 dot inserts stock set up = 0* front sweep/Toe at arms. I personally run 1 dot inner mount and 2 out outer mount for 1/2* front sweep.

I see Kevin's first setup had weight behind the battery and motor. His latest makes no mention of any weight. Just wondering if the weight should still be there. Seems like 20 grams back there would make a pretty big difference either way.

It depends on your battery and how your car balances I personally have ni weight behind my battery and 14g infront of it and 26g behind my motor to balance the bar l/r also my battery is in the backwards position with the peice of servo tape behind the battery to push it forward the csr weighs 1382 fully loaded the tires read with in a few grams of each other
