Ya..I forgot to order those with my DCV kit. Luckily the local shop can get them prior to the weekend. Looking forward of trying the entire new setup that Hebert posted.

You also have to build the DCV correctly otherwise they will come apart.The hook goes to the back on each side.Got mine at the birds and asked how they were built. Also needed a smaller bearing like the reflex ones. Everything else fits fine.

Default Drag Racing

I'm going to be using this car solely for drag. Can you guys recommend a good strong servo, a motor/esc servo and a good set of tires for street racing. Thanks Guys

Default upgrades

In all honesty I'm to lazy to check every single page for 1 upgrade at a time...Could someone give me a list to get started of upgrades that are needed out of the box for this car

thank you very much
Steven

Love the honesty! LOL.

I dont have this car but I am a fan of AE and had the 6.1we. But Ive kept up with this thread. So this is what I know and recommend.

1. RSD Shock parts. Bladders, pistons, and posibly o-rings and the new springs (depending on your extent)
2. DCJ's or I think theyre calling them now DCVs (dunno for sure). I used the RSD ones...worked great on my 6.1. Make sure you get the smaller bearings needed for assembly. I hear that AE is making their own DCJs now too, but dunno if theyre out on the market yet.

All those I think are the must haves. Now for the icing on the cake

3. I personally ran ceramic bearings on my TC6.1....worked great! Amain at Reedy Race
4. There were some lil mods that I learned from Rick H that I liked. After super gluing all the caster degree parts....drill in grommet screws to keep parts nice precise (no play, yet free)

Im sure the racers with the actual 6.2 will advise a bit clearer Car looks great!
Best of luck!

I would also look into having the Yokomo Pink & Blue Springs to use as an option. And to add to the servo saver suggestion....I really love the XRay HD 4-spring option. The top hole in it is the same distance as stock. Plus this is the strongest servo saver that I have EVER used.
