That's a big gap, mine is very close if the battery is in as far as it can, so usually I tape my cell as far out as possible to play safe.

Yea I called around and no one has anything here. I'll order everything from amain. Is the ae screw kit worth it not? Is it a huge weight different? Im going to run a 340+ gram lipo so I got to cut some lard off

I like the aluminum screw kit. My RevTech lipos are about 330g a piece, and even with that and 2 gear diffs I am 1395 give or take. Seems like it took about 22-25g off my car!

Cool deal! I think my nano techs are much heavier being a 6000 mah but I don't recall the exact amount. I'll order the screw kit next week or so. Does anyone make a ti kit?

Soo.... I just received a TC6 with the Dial-a-grip 0's... How do I know how far to widen it in the front compared to the setups I see with the shock blocks and shims?

For this car... in the rear, regarding rear toe-in.. is it safe to say.. that if there is 3mm of washer spacers in the the rear.. then that is 3 degrees of toe-in for this car?

Because I remember with the Xray cars.. if you had a 1.5mm rear shim in the rear.. it wasnt 1.5degrees of rear toe.. it was like 2 or something... then you would add the outside hub for the final toe.


My Car...

2.5mm of difference in shims gives 3* toe (kit setup). so every .8mm is roughly 1deg.

I've done this with a body reamer, it does work but I'd do 2 holes 180 degrees apart. Still don't think it'll get you to the rear motor screw though. Like other racers on here, I use the bottom hole for my blinky car, works fine.

If you have 3mm shim at rear/rear you should have a 0.5mm in front/rear of inboard wishbone. this will give you 3deg.

Nice setup otherwise, maybe you could invest in a smaller servo for weight, I had to put 20g weight on front/rear of cell to balance my chassis, but running 10.5t boosted I have a big fan on motor to keep everything cool.

Just got my Ae Tc6 gear diffs...
Man these things a good quality ! Can't wait to run them at the weekend.
For anyone building them they like a slightly lighter weight oil in them compaired to Spec-R or Yokomo.
