RSD DCJs are good if you use the spool. But even though they prevent some front end chatter, I don't believe this translates to faster lap times.
Rick, what tracks would you recommend trying a front gear diff ?

I changed to a gear diff for VTA and it was awesome! Very good feel in and out of the turns. It's a fairly tight carpet track.

I run a locked front gear diff after further inspection on my second hand tc6.1 bargain
Is it worth getting the double cardan unis because there is virtually no chatter i run 21.5 blinky so not fairly fast but am planning to start the boost soon is it worth the cash?

Well my e clips failed to arrive in time. I found a washer to do the job, but before I installed it I decided to have another look for the one that went flying, surprisingly I actually found it!

First race day with my TC6.1 FT tomorrow, fingers crossed for a good day.

Was that from a hit or weak parts?
Thanks

The only thing I've broken is one of my shock bushings and that was from over tightening a screw.

Ok I can see your running 21.5. The trick with 21.5 (well all racing really) is to carry as much corner speed as possible. So your not wasting time slowing down. Simple really.

Reflex racing springs are a good start.

My tip from a pro this week. (not me) . If your grip is up go a harder spring all round it will help the car change direction quicker.

Default Which is which?

Is this the correct Reedy17.5 motor?

this what I have in my TC6.1



This what I see on the page.



Was there a running change? How do I measure the timing per notch? I bought it second hand from another racer recently.

Yes, the motor was changed. You have the original version.

Any differences? And how do you measure the timing? How many degrees is each notch?

I believe original Reedy version has a slightly smaller diameter rotor, still very quick. One of the local AE drivers gears 46 Pinion/96 Spur/45* Timming for a small tight track. On the new version #956 rotor, I have used 48/96 with 50* timing with good success on similar track.

+1 on recommended on hand spares: C-Hubs, Blades, and front Spool Cups, but overall very durable.
