narrow chassis is not easy to touch the ground when cornering

The TC6 does come with a gear diff and solid front axle. The 3hole bearing caps are a new FT part and are not a running change to the kit. As far as chassis go, the 6.1 still uses the original chassis.

My understanding is that this was done to prevent the chassis from dragging, not to increase flex (although it will slightly).

Rick, correct. Between riding curbs and a fast sweeper my car was dragging a lot, and sometimes would catch and spin out, the narrower chassis reduced that. It does flex a bit more so i went back to a regular upper deck (instead of one cutout (front and back) as we usually run. I must thank Dawson and FJ for their help (its always nice to hear what my car does wrong) after a few weeks of heavy testing i was very happy with the car

What were you cutting on the upper deck?

The small bridge in front of where the steering post mounts and the small bridge just in front of the spur gear.

Like this?

I assume this increases flex and traction.

Yes, i liked just the front cut for carpet, seemed to keep the nose down in the corner better, on pavement cutting the rear seemed to help my car rotate better. Keep in mind there will be a large difference in how it effects your car depending on the rest of the setup, give it a try but i would recommend having an extra in case it doesn't fit your preference.

I think you mean TC6.1. My TC6 came with a rear ball diff.

Sorry in advance if this is a lame question and I think the answer is yes but want to make sure before going any further on my TC6.1 build. Arm Mount Shims = FWD and/or RWD Mount Shims? This is my first on road car and want to make sure I start off right. TIA and thanks for all the other stuff I've picked up here.

At least Tower has them in stock on their website. I've been waiting for the new parts on the A Main website, and they simply say "search shows no product"

Has anyone tried the Zeppin Racing towers and bulkheads, and are they the same (in terms of geometry) to the Associated parts ?

Mike - no problem

Has anyone got a chart of what combinations of arm mounts produce what levels of toe? Yes I know I can measure it but I am at work Stock setup on rear 0 dot fwd and 0 dot offset rear produces 2.5deg. So what does 0 dot offset on both produce? Any help would be much appreciated.
