After many years trying to tame this beast I finally did it. Attached a setup that is both easy to drive and fast. Lower roll centres were the final piece in the puzzle.

Does that setup work better on asphalt or the carpet. Glad to see someone else still likes their TC6

That's a setup where you don't mess with geometry. Everything was placed on the right places, or the best they can be. This car can have the lowest CG of ALL cars of today (lowest diffs possible, if I had low profile shocks it would be really the lowest) but everything was corrected so suspension can do it's job. At this point one just has to change roll bars, springs or shock oil to tune the car and that's how it should always be.

This setup is tender to tires and very good to drive, at least for me, when it steps out you can catch easily by holding the throttle and correcting or just get of the throttle. Can't find one thing I can improve this setup, really happy with it.

Almost forgot, moved the battery back and had more rear grip at all times. If one doesn't have the longer turnbuckles for the camber links then no big deal using the shorter ones just go one hole outwards on the chassis side.

Still loving my TC6's. My son and I both race them. Simple, easy, fast.

Of course, as soon as I got this new body done for mine, USVTA outlawed it. The McAllister Corvette Daytona Prototype. Sheesh.

Drooling, that's gorgeous. Are those light buckets functional?

Thanks. They certainly could be. They come with the McAllister body. I used Goop to glue them in. RAM RC Procucts makes a nice US made LED light set. I have one I mounted in a USGT car a few years ago. It looked great and I never had any issues with it, even hitting the wall. However, one racer complained that the lights were “distracting” and wished I’d turn them off. I didn’t really agree, and he was the only one who complained. Most thought they looked cool too.

Myron, might be fun to do a twilight run at an event sometime. Lights with turned down overhead lighting. I know, I know, already too many events!

Default Confused.

Is this what is referred to as " pro squat " ?
Every picture I see of a 6.1 has the shock mount forward of the bulk head.it did not handle terribly. this is how I purchased the chassis but the manual I just downloaded shows things completely different and only mentions " pro squat" in a single sentence.
Thanks for any assistance here.

There's a lot of unusual stuff going on here, but none of that is pro squat. Pro squat is when the front of the rear arm is lower to the ground than the rear of the arm.

Yeah, I don't know what happened here. It works but sure is not factory per plans. Unless someone chimes in that's some kind of mod I'll be changing back to manual specs when parts arrive.thanks
