The motor is in........way in. I ran 12lb springs and the car still did not rub.

Hinge pin mount screws go in from the outside now, and there is an extra position for hinge pin height.

The servo mount holes are sliders so you have the option of moving the servo front to back.

Shocks are so easy to build.

Motor mount plate has 3 screw holes instesd of 2.......side, side and bottom.
The plate is raised off the chassis and secured down in the exact center as to not tweek the car at all.
whats the LOWEST FDR that you can achieve with the TC6? (non boosted 17.5 and 21.5 are popular here.)

Thanks for all the updates guys! Can't wait to get mine.

I have a quick question, are the body posts exactly the same on a TC5 as compared to the TC6? Just wondering if I need to purchase another body.

Thanks!

Keven said a couple pages back they are at most a mm out or so... so with a little fiddling old bodies should work ok...

The internal ratio is 2.0 and on my car I run 114/26 gears. The motor should stay in the same position if the total combined pinion size and spur size stays the same. So for example with 40 pinion and 100 spur you would get a ratio of 5.0 and 50 pinion 90 spur 3.6. Not sure what gear sizes in general are available as I never run stock but you should be able to get it low enough.

I would think it's about the same gear space for a TC5. I'll verify it tonight but I think the lowest I have gears for is 2.826 and it fits.

I ask the Engineer in charge tonight. The shipping container should be loading this week. Figure about 3 weeks until it hits the stores.
