Mine went together really smooth and donít leak, Iím surprised people are complaining about the shocks.
The screw in piston makes them so easy to rebuild,

I beg to disagree.
+1 on tamiya shocks.

I would prob start around 4.30 and monitor motor temp and adjust gearing from there.

I was around 4.3 with full endbell timing in non boosted. Around 4.0 with no endbell timing. Motor temp was around 145 degrees.

Got a chance to run my TC6 tonight. Only had a busted LTC-R body to run, so I made do. I'm running the Herbert Indoor Champs set up, mostly. Still running the long camber links, black ball studs, and using a #2 piston and 40 weight oil as kit parts until my short links, silver ball studs, and blank piston arrive. Got me a new Boss 17.5 and a Tekin RS. Rolling Sorex 24s.

DAMN, this thing is DIALED IN!!!!!

Just a few more little tweaks I want to try, but WOW. Struggled to put my TC5 into the 13s no matter what set up I've put on it, even with the help of some of the local hot drivers, who always had trouble with the 5 as well.

But I was running consistent low 12s to high 11s at my local track tonight with the 6. I've been the slowest guy at the track week to week in our points series (you have NO idea how bad that sucks!!!), but that all seems to be at an end! Can't wait for Saturday! 10.5-11.5sec laps gets you into the A, and we've been getting enough participation in non-boosted to run a full C.

Running +10 degrees of motor timing and a 35/78 gear (4.46 FDR) and coming off a run at about 105F, so there's probably more room in temp (up to 160F) than gears will physically fit, although I've been told that up to a 38 will fit. That or I'll have to go to 64P for more options and tighter ratios.

It was like one of those "Lightbulb finally went on" moments where I realized that my equipment has been holding me back for a while now!

My Speed6 body is almost done, I'll post pics tomorrow. Ode to ShopUFO.

Edit to add....This thing is scarry quiet, too! Hardly makes a sound zipping down the track.

Default Side Piece Outdrives

If anyone is interested in running Xray ECS Driveshafts in their TC6 you can use the TOP spool and these outdrives



The Top spool and these outdrives are a direct fit in the TC6
They are made out of 7075 aluminum.

They can be found here http://sidepieceracing.com

Default setup

would any of the Herbert carpet setups work for high grip asphault?

The stock "kit" setup did not work at all for the track. So far I went to 0 arm mounts in front and 1 mounts in rear and its better but not great. tips?

Stellflue's setup from the Ko Gran Prix is a really good starting point.
