Thanks! Yes, as posted they are the Associated ones. I like them very much and hope they work out well.







I've added a few other goodies as well. Aluminum spur gear pulleys


Delrin/Aluminum outdrives, DCV shafts, belt tensioner and cooling fan, all from Team AE

I assembled and installed my Associated TC6.2 DCV kit tonight. What a difference! It's like night and day. Before, the front CV's would bind at lock to lock turns, so much you can hear it bind. Now it's butter smooth, and totally silent at lock to lock. Well worthwhile upgrade!

The kit with dual joint coupler tubes


The inboard bearing on the steering block needs to be replaced with a 5x10x3 bearing from the stock 5x10x4.


Here is the single CVD versus the DCV



Anybody know if this kit will fit the TC6.1?

Viper, I see that you're running the stock servo horn. Might want to swap that out with a servo saver. Either the AE MGT one or the XRay.

Thanks, I will have to order a set for the 6.1, if they don't have a set of their own.

Hey Pete, yeah, thanks! I'm just using the OEM horn for set up. I purchased a pair of Racers Edge savers that ended up being too big in diameter. I have ordered the XRay one, now I wished I would have known the AE number before hand

I have it in my TC6.1 running VTA class. Works fine.

It's a very different car. So much so they say it should have been a TC7. The main difference is the way the suspension arms, motor mounts and servo mounts to the chassis.

Functionally the 6.2 is said to be a more consistent car.

I was thinking of picking up a aluminum chassis for the Tc6.2. Planed to try it out on high traction carpet. I've talked to a few team drivers and they say it's not needed. What do you guys think?

I am biased(drive Yokomo), but the RSD aluminum chassis, top plate and arm conversion transforms this car from a hard to keep from traction rolling chassis to a front runner on carpet.
I just sold one of my TCs to get a 6.2.

Anyone using the RSD aluminum chassis on asphalt? Any issues vs the c/f chassis?
