Today I installed a servo where the 'J' horn was really tight but still fit so you may need to find one that is real close and push really hard.

I used the F servo horn. Just pressed it on gently with a vice until it bottomed out. The plastic hole/splines are a little too small, but it's the right spline pattern. I've hit the boards hard lots of times since, no issues.

If you want 25% then keep a quarter of the shaft showing while pushing up or for 50% half the shaft
done !! but i swap step 3 & 4.....as

Same issue with the 1257, says to use F. Sucks to have to jam it on there...

yep I use the savox 1251 too, the spline on the savox seems too big for the required 'F' servo horn. Just line the teeth up correctly and use a vice slowly.

had a couple of runs with the tc6 today, car is really good on kit settings. I'm looking forward to a whole season with this car

thanks for the server horn response guys, I generally like things to "fit" rather than jamming them or forcing them together, but if that is what I need to do then all is good.

further question...

Do i need to provide power to the server first to "seed" its initial position before putting the horn on and do people cut the server cord to make it shorter to place nicely into the receiver?

Thanks for all you help and advice

Well sad to say my new tc6 kit has had a defective part and missing one as well . But on the bright side I would say that associated has some of the best customer support i have ever had to deal with. as soon as i called them about the miss/defective parts they asked for my address and the part numbers and told me the parts were on the way .

Power the servo before installing making sure you start withe servo sub- trim at 0 and the trim in the central position. Install the horn and make sub trim adjustment after the servo is installed.

Shorting the wire in unnecessary. You can bundled it with shrink tubing or a zip tie.

i would agree verndog! hard arms on asphalt are only needed if the bite is insanely high

Hey TC6 owners, have any of you guys converted from the T3 2011? If so, why? 3 cars are on my list and this feels like the hardest decision that I've had to make (regarding R/C) in a long time. Any build issues with this car? What about gear diffs...are they available? Parts availability isn't a consideration btw...

There is no official gear diff for the tc6 I don't think... One reason I haven't added a tc6 to the garage yet. Any info on a working gear diff would be appreciated

The yokomo gear diff, or spec-r for the yokomo work. I believe you have to open up the outdrive for the ball of the AE dogbones (aside from shimming it a bit.

The latest issue of Racing Lines has a pic of Andrew Abbot's TC6 with a gear diff, and going by his setup sheets on the AE site its a "Rspec gear"

Just buy it already!

Gear diff takes a mod of outdrives, some say 5 minutes, to me that means 1/2 hour minimum because I'm a thinker.

JayBee...here is my post on build...unreal how balance and total weight ended...awesome! Big improvement over TC5 IMO.
