the ae shocks on the tc6 were really painful to get right, but when i drilled a hole in the cap and switched to rsd bladders they became as good as any other top manufactures shocks, that made a big improvement when i drove the tc6.1

Really good advice (both Rick and Evochick)! Thanks so much--Now I have some work to do.

Hey I'm kind of set on a used 6.1 but the only thing I'm worried about is parts. Are most of the 6.2 parts going to fit on a 6.1, I'm assuming most would but I'm only a year in.

The parts that take the brunt of an impact (e.g. caster blocks, hubs and control arms) are very readily available and are interchangeable between the TC6.1 and TC6.2.

Aluminum parts and CF are new, most of plastic are the same.

Looks to be the same as the WC with a few more holes for the arm mounts...

Being an AE guy since I started with a TC5 I have completely hated the arm mount sytem and the new version is a reason enough for me. Can't beat a new kit and the support from the numerous drivers... It's going to be a great car and the only thing I wish is that it came with all the bells and whistles offered separately. .. main ones being the DCJs and the ti ballstuds..

I often ask myself why many are wishing for DJCs...

I tried two different DJC designs and compared them on track with the standard kit cardans. The quality of the TC5 and TC6 axles was bad, they bind early and caused a bad chattering. Since the TC6.1 the cardans became much better, have nearly no noticeable binding at a full steering angle (if build and manufactured correctly). The effect on the timesheets and car feeling with a DJC is therefore zero.

So my choice for the TC6.1WC is the kit cardan as it causes no trouble and has long maintenance intervalls (and came with the kit ).

So had you guys much trouble with the kit cardans?
