thanks in advance
3/4 gear does not refer to the number of gears in a gear diff. It refers to the number of drive gears in the gearbox.

I'm loving my new t6.1. Built it to run at nats and wasn't disappointed.

Well in practice and 2 club races before nats it was great. Maybe a little twitchy but a front sway bar cured that.

Just sucks you can't buy the light kit body. Mine fell apart quickly and I had to buy a heavier body just for nats. Anyone have a kit light body to sell?

doesnt seem this thread gets much attention

i moved a laydown trans from b6.1 to t6.1 and in the process I found a hinge pin looking piece laying on my table not sure if it fell out of something or where it goes

i use digtial calipers and it shows 9.66mm - Also i wanted to ask if the play/movement with rear dogbones is supposed to be this way and or what stops the play and/or what I may have done wrong for it to do this?

The pin goes through the axle behind the hex. Once that is in, and the hex is pressed on all the way, there will be little play in the axle

perfect man thanks so much - i went ahead and tightened both of those hex nuts on each side after getting that pin lined up and snug and that seems to have fixed the issue? do u think i just didnt tight them enough to being with? doesnt seem like something that would come loose once done right the first time, just my opinion tho

You tightened the hexes down without taking all the play out of the axle.

Don't overtighten that screw either, it snaps pretty easily.

.....So here comes my dumb question of the day. How can I tell which type of Transmission I'm running..Laydown or Layback? Is is possible simply to tell from looking while its in the truck. I recently added a T6.1 to the fleet and it definitely isn't a Standup I do know that. But I'm not sure even what the PRO's or CON's are of the Laydown VS Layback. My plan is to run the truck on a Carpet type track and switching it over to a Gear Diff. Not sure which one will suit my needs and Track. Thanks for all the help

For carpet you're going to want the laydown. Look at the waterfall brace and see which holes it bolts to. The front most holes are for laydown and the ones just behind are the layback ones

Thank you Di_Spencer. So I must have the Layback Trans. my Waterfall screws are mounted in the rear most holes. I would assume then I would need to get the different Transmission case then correct? What the benefits to each of them? Is the Layback better/suited more for Clay? Hate to be asking so many questions, Just never knew the differences.

Yeah, just transmission case and idler gear. The layback put a little more weight on the rear wheels for more grip and it is most people's preference on clay tracks. The laydown pushes the motor a little farther forward and puts more weight on the front wheels for more steering which is more favorable for carpet/astroturf tracks.
