My new TC6.1 FT is due to arrive Monday, think I got one of the last kits they had at Team Associated.

First new touring car I have had in many years, looking forward to building it.

Yes I usually run the rear belt pretty loose, if you hear it slip on acceleration then tighten it up. The actual number you have set at will vary depending on the age of the belt, I shoot for the front belt being snug, and the rear fairly loose.

Hey All,

What other DCJ driveshafts work with the TC6.1 (SpecR for Tamiya, Yokomo, etc)? I just want an alternative to RSDs option.

Thanks,
Kane

Has anybody used ball diffs in the car yet, are they worth getting?

I had contemplated waiting but I'm glad I didn't considering they seem to be sold out now!

Have fun, it was fun to build.

Bump.

If your in a pinch your dremel with a cutoff wheel can cut down the kit studs. It is important not to have the ballstud too long it will damage the diffholders and bind up your driveline.

I used the common ball diff for the rear for some races in the 17.5t class. Worked very good and saves you some weight. In the end an oil filled gear diff gives you more options, less maintenance and a better working drivetrain especially with strong motors. So I will not continue to invest in a balldiff even though the AE balldiff is of a very good quality!

The WC supplement is finally up on the AE site and I was surprised that they specify 5mm ballstuds for the WC bearing caps. I'm surprised because 5mm would still poke out of the bottom of the hole and seems to me like it could still bind... I feel much more comfortable with the 3.25mm studs.

In most cases we run a 1or 2mm shim under the inside ballstud, a 3.25 will be too short unless running 0 shim

The version 2 spec r for tc6 is a drop in fit. I prefer the rsd ones as I think they last longer but have used the spec r with good success as well.
