Question about setting ride height.

Because the weight distribution is different at all four corners, each shock's adjustment will be different.

Wouldnt that have adverse effects on the handling as the stiffness is a little different for each shock?

I always wondered this.

Technically no problem, because the spring force to weight ratio is similar in the end. If it bothers you, you could shoot for same weight L-R.

Thanks for clearing that up.

This thread really died off. Did everyone retire their 6.1s and forget about it when the 6.2 came out?

Wish I had the money to buy a new chassis every time one came out.

Honestly, seeing as how on the 6.2 everyone is having to switch out steering arms and other suspension components to make the car "right" and "more drivable" I'm glad I stuck with my original TC6.

I'm getting ready to sell it and concentrate on 1/12, but I love the car. If I was going to stick with TC I don't believe I would have any problem being competitive with the latest model TCs.

Me too, I got a TC6 with rear gear diff and another roller for spares in a trade, I am good for years.

How much are you trying to get for it? The TC6.2 is a superior car to the 6.1.

$250 with a trinity D3.5 motor, Futaba S9551 servo, Spektrum Sr301 receiver, and an extra set of tires. Plus mine is a Worlds 6.1 so not a huge difference to the 6.2

Many TC6.x racers prefer the RSD shock upgrade parts. Primarily their bladders and pistons.They are a direct fit to the stock shocks and will help to produce a more predictable performance.

The belt I have been using with great success is the Yokomo BD5 front belt.

Part numbers:
Rear: Hot Bodies 68704 for the TCX
Mid/Front: Yokomo BD-516L for the BD5 and BD7
