My fellow racers of RC Tech, please re-size your pictures to something a bit smaller than 3000x4000. Just because the camera is 12 megapixels doesn't mean we need them all. You don't even need photoshop, MS Paint will do the trick.

Even though it is a little more complicated, it is better to move the servo to the shorty battery side to prevent "wiring mess".

I have a few set up questions, trying to figure out what does what and comparing them to set ups sheets just posted. On Rick H's set up sheet, Norcal is a higher traction surface. What affect does going from 0 to 3 on the arm mounts create? Lower roll center I assume, as you are raising the arms but would like some other input. Contrasting Rick's Norcal to Bob S.'s setup, Bob is running 1 std in front 0 offset in back on the rear arms but added 1.5 mil in shims to the front, going for less toe. What is the difference between offset and std degreewise? Last question, running 1 std in front and 0 offset in back would create antisquat, correct? I usually run offroad so it makes more sense when you want to unlock the rear during onpower. Are there ever cases where you run prosquat Rick? Low traction?

Don't worry the cap doesn't move it's fixed to the esc and the servo wires that the other guy said about are inline with the top of the servo and don't move

As I have problems with this subject as well I looked for help. AE had a very good but short essay in its TC5 manual:

http://www.teamassociated.com/manuals/TC5/

Look on page 26 for answers. How this in the end transfers on your car, track and setup can not be answered in theory. I for myself did test the front axle adjustments in a row and found anti-dive in combination with my setup brings more steering...

Hi guys, I've been really busy with work and life in general so I have had a bit of a break from making parts.
Here is a sneak peek at my new 1 piece motor mount for the TC6.1 chassis. It will be lighter and more rigid than the stock setup. it has clearance for can motors and more front to rear adjustment for a wider gearing range.
As soon as the prototype is complete and tested, I will post a ballpark cost for those who are interested.

Here is a pic with a motor.
Note that all 3 mounting holes are accessible regardless of what spur gear is used.

Hi all, not sure if this is the right place to post, but I have a TC6 for sale in the Sydney area, chassis, body, wheels and parts that came with kit + box and instruction manual. Looking for $220 for it.
