Can you clarify what the brace is for and why you are adding it?
Do you have your receiver mounted on top of your ESC?

These slotted roll center shims allow you to adjust the roll centers on your AE TC6.2 and XRAY T4 2014 very easily. The shims are 0.5mm thick and precision cut out of black G10. In order to install, simply loosen the suspension mount screws, slide underneath the mounts and re- tighten the screws.






RSD121 RSD TC6.2 Bumper Brace and Bumper Kit

This RSD TC6.2 Bumper and Bumper Brace Kit protects the front end of your TC6.2 much better than the original bumper. By raising and elongating the bumper brace, the brace now butts up against the front bulkhead providing much needed support to the bottom bumper screws, preventing chassis de-lamination in hard frontal collisions.
Dang it Cristian!!
You beat me to it!

I like what you did... looks great!

Any help is GREATLY appreciated

What is your budget?
Many folks like the LRP, Hobbywing, Speed Passion and Tekin ESCs. I've heard some good things about ORCA but not too sure about support in the U.S.
Reedy has something promising due to come out soon too.
Motor wise... Trinity Killshot, Reedy, Schuur speed, Powers Plutonium, and Thunderpower are pretty popular.

Any of these are considered "A Main" level products.
It's mostly up to car setup and Driving.

You do realize that making the proper adjustments can do the same for creating less mechanical grip. That's why these cars are so adjustable. Are you restricted on tire choice? Is the problem you are having related to traction roll? It's got more to do with setup rather than chassis flex. Chassis flex for the most part widens the tuning window, it doesn't create traction per-SE.

I am surprised that you don't have overheating issues since you are mounting stuff to the ESC heatsink. You may be way over thinking the balance thing. Balancing is not so critical that your receiver will throw everything off. If that were the case, having the receiver up high in the chassis is worse than getting perfect balance.
Good luck with your test...

I get to shake down my ride this Saturday and can't wait. Gonna be comparing the Nardo and the MS6. The build went great except for some of the hardware. A lot of the FH's stick down below the chassis...but no biggie. Not a lot of sanding either And like I said before, this geardiff is one of the best out there. And the car weighs in at a good 1388grams fully loaded. Contemplating getting a second

Thanks bro.
That body is by BittyDesign and called the NARDO. I don't know if it's lightweight, but it doesn't feel heavy at all. The headercard says 0.75 thick. And it weighs 94 grams as you see it.....stickers and all.
I'll give a report on it soon bro.

Awesome JB, looking forward to it!

What or where do you race? Carpet Asphalt? Good luck either way.
