The TC6.1 loves a diff in front under low-medium grip conditions.

Thanks

To use the Spec-R BD5 DCJ's in a TC6, the following parts would be needed:
--- Spec-R PN SPR001-BD2 DCJ CV Universal Swing Shaft Version 2 (for Yokomo BD5)
--- Spec-R PN SPR-R1A122 R1 2 x 10 Pin
--- Spec-R PN SPR-R1A110 R1 Aluminum Wheel Hex
--- 4mm shims, such as 3Racing PN 3RAC-SW04 Stainless Steel 4mm Shim Spacer 0.1/0.2/0.3mm
--- Associated PN 31370 TC6.1 Axle Crush Tubes
--- Associated PN 31360 TC6.1 Steering Blocks
--- 2 ea 5x10x4mm ball bearings (e.g. Associated PN 25237)

The above items fit in the TC6.1 Caster Blocks PN 31358 with almost no trimming of the caster blockís inside cutout. The TC5/TC6 Caster Blocks (e.g. PN 31558, 31557, 31556, 31555, 31213, 31212, 31211 or 31210) can also be used but their inside cutout must be substantially enlarged to make room for the double cardan joint, which protrudes further inboard than the TC6ís standard CV joint.

The Spec-R BD5 DCJís weigh 8.7g each. The stock TC6 CVís weigh 9.2g each.

Iím not sure which other manufacturerís DCJís would fit, as the Spec-R ones are the only ones Iíve tried.

Here's a link to the VTA thread. Its hard to find sometimes because they had to restart it due to a page stacking problem:

Are the DCJs really worth it? Compared to a couple of other conpanies, I have seen no top drivers using them, nor is it in any set up sheet that I have seen.

Thumbs up Spec-r swingshafts for Yokomo BD5

Thanks a million WASWADENER. It took me a while to get some answers on this and you sure steered me in the right direction. Actually, you gave me more information than SPEC-R tech as well as the best way to maintain them. Thanks again for responding and Happy New Year

The other popular DCJ shafts for the 6.1 are from Reflex Racing. You'll notice the RDS dual joints are listed on Mike Haynes' setup sheet from the IIC. I'm trying some in mine. They fit great. Also, Cristian at Reflex is great to deal with.

Keven H. listed the 44mm Tamiya dual joints on his Indoor Champs setup, so I guess you've got some other options.

I've been running the standard shafts in mine. As long as you grease them up well, they last a long time and work great.

+1 on the DCJ's. I use the Reflex Racing ones. You'd need to dremmel out the C Hub as described above, purchase 5mm Hexes, and 2mm pins to complete the conversion. The DCJ's eliminate axle binding during cornering/steering input, enabling you to drive smoother and faster through turns compared to stock axles.

What would be needed to convert a 6 to 6.1 and is that necessary?

Thanks guys for the plug.

Our new V2 Narrow axle DCJs fit even better and require little to no trimming on the TC6.1 caster blocks.

The plus on out DCJs is that our dog bone ball size is the proper size. The Yokomo is a bit undersized, and while they will work, they are going to be more prone to failure and vibration.

That's more than you need. For example, the Anti-Roll Bar Set comes with the tube, wires, and mounts. Probably similar with the CVA kit.

+2! I use the Reflex Racing DCJs and they are awesome. I have the older ones where you need to use the shrink wrap. Still, I have had zero issues with mine and could definitely tell a difference in the way my car makes sharp turns. Pick your car up with the stock axles. Give it full throttle and turn the wheels to the stops in either direction. Vibrates like crazy! Look at those wheels bouncing! Think about what's happening to your car when you're trying to make a sharp turn and those wheels are vibrating like crazy. Put the Reflex Racing DCJs on there and it's smooth as butter! The new DCJs look even better! As for grinding out the C hubs, it was no big deal. They're already wide enough. You just need to buzz the corners off with a Dremel or file. It was a piece of cake. One of the best upgrades I have made to my car.
