I am looking at getting the techra suspension blocks for the Exo. Would I get 2 ff and 2 rr? And does anyone know of they have a US importer or should I just get them from Toni sport?

Toni Sport is great to deal with. Just email him the part numbers and ask for tax free shipping to USA. Shipping is usually close to $18 for 2~3 day shipping. I've always had great support when ordering from Tonisport.

Giving serious thought to moving over to using these:

AE Eyelets

with these
Tamiya 5mm Aluminum Ball Connectors / Hex Head

Thoughts?

Go for it.

The hex heads will make for quicker roll center adjustments using the ball studs.

New turnbuckle ends aren't entirely necessary. I use a punch and reamer to make holes in the stock Tamiya ones in order to fit a 2.0mm hex driver, without having to pop off the turnbuckle. It works well for me.

I'll give the reamer a try.

How did the racing go at NorCal? Apparently there was racing in Ripon yesterday, but I only heard about it second hand.

Good racing with you last month Brian! Your ExoSix was looking really good.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

Thanks Mike!

My second race with the ExoSix and I am continuing to steadily improve my driving consistency. In the main, TQ and 2nd qualifier had breakages and I was able to obtain the lead for most of the race, but I lost it with 2 laps to go.

On our prepped parking lot track, I used an LTC 2.0 body throughout the day. The car rotated quickly and had lot of corner speed. However, I think it had too much on-power steering for me to navigate a chicane section efficiently. I needed to let off the throttle quite a bit to settle the car, losing a lot of time.

With all the inherent steering and forward drive the car already has, I think a slightly forward mounted LTC-R body would have probably dialed in the car for me.

Any chance you will make it out to Ripon? There should be a race on Saturday.

The Exo 6 has good potential, and I hope exotek comes out with even more upgrades to the platform soon...

There are so many things Mike could make that I would buy. I'll definitely be buying the spool when he releases it. But I would also like to see a pilot shaft replacement made of brass that also uses swing shaft caps to prevent wear. Aluminum replacements for the front c-hubs would be great for durability. I use GPM but they are 6 degree hubs which I don't like.
