Im very happy about the TC6 and would like to find out if it's worth to sale it and upgrade to TC6.1.
Any feedback from someone that owns/ed both would be apreciated.
Thanks

Default TC6 Gear Diff Video...

I know putting putty in gear diff is probably not that hard to do but can someone do a putty gear diff you tube video?

Also which kit roll bar is equivalent to the TC6 black?

And there's no sanding of gears in gear diff correct?

Thanks

The lowest I can get my ride height it 4.8mm with the collar all the way up. Move the spring up would lengthen the shock. I need to shorten the shock to get more room for adjustment. That said my shock length is 62mm. I don't think thats my issue. My buddy is at 65mm and it takes 6 shock collar turns to get to 5mm versus my 1 turn.

Here is a picture of the front of the car with the shock collar all the way up. Can anyone see anything I've done wrong??

Looks like maybe you don't have the offset hinge pin blocks, which would contribute to the problem.

That does indeed fix it. I thought those were new to the 6.1 as a tuning option. Does that imply that the dial-a-grips would not work with the 6.1? or was it the lack of track width contributing to the problem? would have adding shims between the bulkhead and roll center block had the same effect?

The wider arms makes the length from the upper and lower shock mounts lower so you will lose some ride height. With the 6.1, they changed to the open rod end for the shock, which makes the spring retainer sit up a good bit more than the old shock end. You can trim some of the rod end off which should help. All that being said, I can have my car at around 2mm with RSD springs, and did not have to modify anything

Hmmm I must still have more going on. Put the RSD springs back on and can only go to about 4mm. I'll look at it more tomorrow at the track when I can compare to others.

Maybe its just cause I run my car wider. My front spacing is the offset mounts + 1mm per side

Your original post said you're building a 6.1. The offset arm mounts give you the same width as you'd get with non-offset arm mounts and 2mm of spacers. It doesn't look like you have any spacers in the picture, which would mean you're 2mm narrower than you should be on the 6.1, which is already pretty narrow.

To be clear, I'm just referring to the narrow hinge pin spacing causing the problem. How you get there (offset arm mounts, shims, dial-a-grips, etc) doesn't really matter.

When the hinge pins are spaced outward, it increases the distance from the hole in the shock tower to the hole in the arm. Increasing the hinge pin spacing by 2mm would lower the car maybe 0.5mm +/- a bit depending on vertical / horizontal distance from lower to upper mount. Score one for Pythagoras.
