Apparently the Kimbrough brand spur gears will fit in the TC6?

Is a 108 64 pitch too big to fit in the chassis. Looking to gear initially in the 4.0 to 3.8 range.
Kimbrough fit fine,

use this link to determine what will and wont fit.

Guys,
Need some help here,

Small technical track filled with low to mid speed corners, running 17.5 blinky,
Front diff - 125k diff fluid
Rear diff - 40wt shock oil
All settings are per stock manual recommendations.

Car is easy to drive and smooth, however it doesn't have the aggression for attacks.
Front pushes out upon deceleration to corner entry.
Tire traction doesn't seem to be problem as I am traction rolling if I clip a corner wrongly.

Where can i start to induce stronger steering authority in corner entry?

heavier rear diff oil will have a slower corner entry, rather try 0.5 or even 1.0 deg toe out in the front or a narrower front track width, that will give you more aggressive corner entry, if thats not enough reduce the rear toe in 0.5 deg inciments

strange. I was struggling with the came issue a little I just couldn't get a good initial turn in and was loosing too much time on corner entry and mid corner. I changed from 50 Wt to 1k and it really transformed my car it rotates through the slower corners so much better now. That's why I mentioned it.

If I am running with a 21.5 in VTA and a 48 pitch, I am hoping to run the Tekin Gen2 redline motor in my TC6.1 when I get it

Thanks for the tips guys and gals.

Default 3Racing aluminum shock base

I purchased the below item for my AE TC6.1 ft. When installed the front ride height will not go lower than 7mm and the rear will not go lower than 6.5mm. Any ideas to lower ride height?

3Racing Aluminium Shock Spring Base Cover 13mm For 3Racing Damper


Technical Data

The new Aluminium Shock Spring Base Cover 13mm from 3Racing successfully made a revolutionary transition from traditional plastic made to aluminum alloy. It effectively prevents spring twisting and bending, optimizing the performance of the shock. The base cover is of light-weight and cut by CNC machine precisely. Available as individual part now.

Is there anything called setup sheet for newbies ?

I was going through the tc6.1 manual and here is what I am planning to do:

- 40w shock oil in all 4 shocks
- 2 silver springs in the front and 2 green springs in the rear
- ride height 5 mm

after this I will see how the car handles.

possibly will check/change gear differential oil with the same 40w.

does this look like a good starting point ?

I haven't checked the shock oil since I bought the tc6.1 used.

Thanks in advance.

i believe it adds "sprung weight" to the car. opposed to unsprung weight. thus changing the rate at which the arms compress and decompress because your adding weight to the a-arm in a sense.
im my experience with my s411 when i did this, the car didnt really change. i felt that it rolled slightly less in the corners but only at corner entry. which was when the extra weight at the tires caught up with the rest of the car and reacted the same. my lap times were within thousands of a second from mounting shocks the "standard way" and i think that was because traction came up in the track. i do not believe it lowers center of gravity enough to justify it. . . . . . .

That part was designed to be used with 3Racing Damper, which is why it's not giving you the correct ride height with associated shocks. You can cut the ball end the spring base cover rides on, but be sure to cut them all equally.
Personally, I would just use the stock spring collar. I see nothing wrong with the plastic ones.
