Here is a pic of the battery braces.
these are the prototypes so the hardware won't be Phillips of course.

Try running a .1mm spacer between the shock body and bottom cap.

Adding more will decrease the compression on the oring.........

downside.
they are more likely to leak.

I, m running .2mm with RSD orings.

I've the same problem and found that it was my associated green slim that make the o-ring or x-ring bigger.
It seems the old green slim didn't do that.

Yes, just like the factory plastic ones.
I actually prefer tape over all other options.

Shoot me a PM with what you want and I will respond with my PayPal info.
The Battery stays and the bumper brace will go for $10.00 USD ea. shipped in the Continental U.S. They will come with all needed hardware to install without any mods.
Something coming soon will be a carbon replacement for the mid mounted battery stop that is longer and stronger and will better protect the belt from battery shift.

This will be $5.00 shipped but will be free when both the Bumper brace and battery stays are purchased at the same time! That's all 3 parts for $20 shipped in the U.S.

I have put together a build review of the Associated TC6.2 on my site if any of you are still sitting on the fence about getting one...

You can see it here; http://www.rcracingni.co.uk

Any comments and feedback greatly appreciated.

Stephen

Hey there
quick question, instead of running 3X1.1mm holes in piston and 30wt oil is it the same as running 6X1.1mm with 60wt oil ??
And is there a site that can anyone lead me to with all this info?

No. It is not the same. However, with a 6x1.1mm piston, you probably want to start around 900-1000cst to get the damping right.

My TC3 served me well for 14 years, including tons of fun for the last 3 years at IIC; but its time to upgrade.
Built my new TC6.2 this week; hope to get the electronics in and out to TQ within a couple weeks.

This must be the best looking car I've seen, well done. Did you buy the silver parts or polished the blue off?

From what I understand, you can strip the blue anodizing and re-seal the parts a la naturale.
