I do have 6 degree caster block on, only cos they were the only ones I have as spares at the time. Should I go back to 4's?

What would be my next step, regarding roll center changes or any other changes? I don't have the correct length turnbuckles for front link changes though....

lengthen rear camber link?

I'm bit dumb with car setup
Have you tried changing your wheelbase?

oh yes sorry, forgot to mention I have reduced rear toe from the standard 4 degree arm mount shims to 3.5. Might need to reduce this even more.

no not yet, it's one of my next things to do also. Just need some track time

however there seems to be some conflicting opinions regarding rear wheelbase. According the tc6 manual, lengthening the rear wheelbase will decrease traction, which is what I want. However other car setups say lengthening the rear wheelbase will make the car more stable and promote rear grip.

But I will give it a go too. Thanks

Try 2mm rear and 1mm front wheelbase and make sure you have 2.5 rear toe. Or perhaps you want to give it a try: http://www.info-rc.net/wp-content/up...iorca_2011.pdf

I think you will find when you reduce rear toe it will free up the rear end. Then you will need to find the balance you like for on power. I fall back to Hebert's latest super stock high grip carpet setup for a baseline. Alot depends on how much grip in the track of course.

Went to 2.5 rear toe but was too hard to drive. Ended up on 3degree rear toe in and car is much better now, thanks for help everyone!

Glad you got your car working better. One thing that I didn't see mentioned was front camber. On carpet I could feel the difference between 1 degree and 1.5 degrees of front camber on turn in. I haven't tried it on carpet, but on asphalt, raising the rear roll center by raising the rear hinge pins really woke the car up for me.

So will there be an upgrade kit for the 6 to a 6.1? Or will all of us recent tc6 purchasers be forced to cobble one together?

I'd suggest second options if you want to do it soon, don't forget you do not need everything...

Rick I have a question, did you or any other team drivers tried the new diff gear with only 2 satellite gears instead of 4, as used in the Serpent 411?

If so can you tell us what was the result?

I am a little surprise that only 2 are used in their car.(apparently for weight purpose)

Regards,

I'm interested in Hebert's setup from the indoor champs. Just watched him through a couple rounds of qualifying and that car is dialed.

hi guys. How do you guys like the tc6. Do you think it will be better to get an xray or to just get a tc6. I have a tc5r now and i want to get a new tc.

Hi Guys

Ran my TC6 today, First raceday out with it.

Very nice to run, a wee bit tailey coming out of the corners

Any fix for that?

basicly running stock setup
