I spent my first day with the TC6.2 today. It was very impressing how good the basic setup worked. I did a lot of changes step by step. The car is very good to control and easy to drive. I only touched the track limits two times in 10 batteries 15 minutes. The kit servoarm is made of easy to break plastic and it broke on a light hit. I will replace it with the T4 servosaver.
Other than that the car was a dream on its first day. A similiar setup to my TC6.1 worked well for the 6.2, well the 6.2 is more easy, predictable and calm. Maybe faster...but not today and if just by a tenth...time will show.

My shocks are upgraded with the ReflexRacing Bladders, pistons and 6.2 springs including drilled shock caps. These are my tuning recommendations. You will get very smooth excellent working dampers

Without a doubt,
Kevins new setup is an improvement over his original

felt slower to me however dropped 2 tenths on average.

Yep much easier to drive and the traction rolls went away.

I run 17.5 blinky high grip carpet. Running less droop. Smaller sway bars.

Well I spent a long day yesterday becoming 1 with my 6.2. And when I say I put the car thru a durability test....PLEASE believe that
The track has good grip but its tight and board-brutal. Perfect for 1/12th tho.
First and foremost I have to say that this car is STOUT!!! It was pretty cool to break the chassis down for a rebuild today, and not see a single scratch.
The kit setup was damn close too. Came to the track with just the RSD 14 & 16lbs springs on and that's it. Car was very drivable but the rear gdiff needed heavier fluid. So while in the pits...we (myself & pitboss Kody Knutson) rebuilt the shocks (45wt/40wt) & Yoke Pink/Blues, 80wt in the gdiff and front dcj's with steel outdrives. Ran the car like this for the rest of the day. TQ'ed and won but admittedly....it was an ugly Main. The worst Main I've ever been involved in
I don't know about you guys' cars but mine steers close to a 12th scale, lol....and I wasn't the only one to think so. Amazing!! The car transitions well, squares up and scoots. It was awesome while I was in the groove...but when I drove hard, not so much. This car will force me to change my driving style slightly
I didn't get a chance to really try the Nardo body....didn't want to bug up my perspective before getting a solid platform with the setup under the MS6 first.

I'm very pleased with this latest AE rendition of the TC6. Can't wait to sink my teeth in more
I think my EVO is gonna have to wait until next carpet season to be built

Happy Racing

For me, it was kinda a cosmetic thing. But really....durability and ease of replacement if something goes awry. If a blade wears out and the axle pin gets wedged in that cup...I can only imagine that that could be a pita to fix in a hurry. But this is just my take on it.
As far as the djc's....my local hobbyshop, Kody's Emerald City R/C pieced them together for me.
I have 2 sets of the RSD ones as backup.

I have the exact same feeling about the car with MS6 body, it's fastest when driven "easy". I've also run with LTCR for a few batteries and it seems it allows me to drive harder without loosing too much time. With blinky 17,5T I have better results with MS6 but with 10,5T it's LTCR.
I have driven only about 30 packs with the car, mostly with MS6/17.5T. After the race next weekend (17,5T blinky) I will test more with the LTCR.

I now have my 6.2 and DCVs but noticed you NEED different bearings to make them fit as per page 35 of the manual

kit has 5x10x4 and you need 5x10x3 to make them fit.

they are similar to the rsd ones but more compact
