  • Quote: Has anyone tried to mount a VTA body on a TC6? I picked up a used one to run in VTA but the front body posts are way to short to fit the VTA body. Is there something longer that will fit? Im sure I can piece something together, but I just thought Id ask to see if there is something that is an easy bolt on solution for a taller front body post. Its hard to tell how long the posts are looking at pictures n the internet and Im sure someone has already solved this.

    Thanks in advance.
    HPI #6507 Universal Body Post Set 4-40/3mm also work well
  • I use the associated bulkhead shims under the body post to raise it up a bit.

  • Perfect. Thanks Guys. I ordered set of the HPI posts. They looked the longest and I can always cut them down. The AE posts looked to only be 1 hole longer than the stock posts and I wasn't sure that was enough.

    Can someone give me a hand? I open this link but it's just a blank setup sheet for me. There's only a cpl on the associated site that I can see...the rest are blank.

    Thanks
  • Try using ie or firefox to view, these sheets don't pull up on ipod/ipad/iphones.
  • TC6.1 Parts
    Can anyone help me pls. I want to know the comprehensive list of upgraded parts the tc6.1 has over the tc6 - The petitrc list and the Team Ass. sites don't list the gear diff and outdrives etc. Also did the 3 hole vertical rear diff top brace come out with the tc6.1 or is it a factory aftermarket item?

    Here is parts list for upgrade to TC6.1 as posted by Associated:

  • 88mm chassis
    Noticed the stock chassis was narrowed to 88mm. 4mm on each side shaved off? To reduce chassis rub? By Narrowing it does the chassis become more flexible? Thanks

    Yeah would have more flex. Super narrow chassis seems to be fashionable these days.
  • narrow chassis is not easy to touch the ground when cornering
  • tc6 vs tc6.1

  • 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?
