Start with a 4.5 Fdr for blinky and go up or down based on motor temp.
Aim for a temp of 170-180 after 6 mins with a fan.

Ok, if you are running a "blinky" class which is what I gather from your earlier post, you should get a 96t 64 pitch spur gear. You should then have 36t-44t pinions that will give you a tuning range of 4.36 through 5.33 FDR.
Find out what other drivers are running at your track and use the right pinion to get close to what they are running.
If you intend to race on a regular basis, you will need to purchase a reasonable set of gears to find the right combination for different track conditions and locations. There are too many factors that go into selecting the perfect gear ratio so its always best to have some choices.

If you know what the intended FDR (final drive ratio) is, you can usually find the combination to get you there. If you don't have a FDR calculator, there are plenty of resources available. just google it...

The pound rating won't matter. Two different springs can both be 15lbs, but if they're wound differently, they'll have a different feel. He ran HPI springs, so that's what's on the setup sheet.

HPI Silver is a 16.2-16.5lb spring. HPI Blue is a 14.4-14.6lb spring.

It's like running RSD Purple and RSD Blue.

I'm sure it's been asked before, but nothing really came up from my search.

What spare parts are good to have on hand for the TC6.1?

Knuckles and caster blocks. Maybe some spare suspension mounts in the event of crazy collisions. Also, some spool cups and blades.

Aside from that, the car is pretty tough.

Thanks, that's not too bad. So arms and rear hubs aren't necessary?

By blades... Do you mean the out drives? Also, what are the knuckles?
Thanks

Blades are the plastic pieces that fit over the end of the dogbone that goes in the outdrive. Knuckles are the front steering hubs.
