Hey everyone, I just ordered the EXO6 and the TB04 conversion for my TB04 Pro II. Does anyone have a good USGT medium-high grip carpet baseline setup? If not, I might start with RedbullFXXs' Reedy setup and go from there unless that's a bad idea.

Thanks!

I have a really good USGT set up on mine right now for medium traction carpet. I will upload it later tonight. But it has parts not in the kit on it.

Off the top of my head it's blue yokomo springs all the way around. Front diff with 2.5mil, both front hinge pin carriers are C block, and I think I have 6mm hexes all the way around.

Thanks.

I'm running 500k in the front diff currently, and using Tamiya springs. Hopefully I can make it work!

Well was able to get it earlier than expected. I had to add 55g of weight to get to 1450g. And I have all steel screws a heavy front diff, amd a 6500mah batt. Getting down to 1380 for the new USGT rules or TC will be no problem.

The car is a beast for me. Very controlable. As traction changes though out the day I really only mess with camber, shock angle, and maybe small droop or RC changes (+/- .5mm)

Would you mind sharing build tips as well as diff setting techniques that you use for the rear diff?
Use high quality diff grease, good 3/32 steel or ceramic diff balls
Initial setting on diff should be a little loose, it will break in, and tighten up after a few runs

Race setting: For carpet, or higher grip
Hold both wheels, spur gear will just slip with your thumb pressing on it

Race setting for asphalt, or lower grip, should slip a bit on acceleration from dead stop

My setup is close to Rtype setup, you may want to run that, or the Proffesors', my setup is such that the car never slows down in corners, more of a pan car style of driving is required to tame that setup

No need for modified ARC pieces on this car

Default Exo 6

Well guys I was hoping to be one of the few who actually has an exo 6. Unfortunately, the two kits I bought for the conversion both had problems. The tb04 parts kit had problems with the steering cranks not being machined to the size of the bearings. The main conversion kit was missing 5 screws and two bearings. I sent them an email, let's see how good their support is.

Thanks for the tips. I'll get the diff built and test it out this weekend. I didn't realize that Tamiya had lightweight outdrives or I would have ordered them. Looks like I'll be placing another order with TQ in the near future.

Hi all, I've made an editable excel based setup sheet for the EX06 for those who have a laptop with them at the track. Feel free to download it at the link below. If the link doesn't work, please let me know!
