Ok well since I am not yet a TC6 or 6.1 owner, would you reccomend that I use a 6.1 kit to flush out the car or can I get all the pieces I need from a TC6? I have noticed the arms look beefier on the 6.1 but I could just get those pieces if I found a good used 6.

Get a 6.1. The geometry on the arms and rear hubs is revised vs the 6, the 6.1 has a better sway bar setup, and comes with a real spool/geardiff vs slipper spool/balldiff. The new plastic parts also use standard 5x10x4 bearings instead of 6x10x3s

Either way is fine. Personally I like the 6 arms better, since they are easier to set droop with and they don't rub on smaller wheels. However, both my cars have 6.1 arms.

The hubs are better on the 6.1, but the caster blocks are better on the 6.

Andrew, do you use that oil every run as the description says, or just during rebuilds?

Hi Christian, I have two follow-up questions:

1) Do I need to worry about the extra springs in the RSD servo saver? The instructions weren't clear to me and the package includes two smaller gold springs and one larger silver spring. The only way I could get it to go together was by using one small gold spring.

2) What size fasteners are you using to attach the servo mount on the RSD6? I managed to lose the nut and screw and cannot seem to find anything in my spares box that fits properly.

Thumbs up RSD big thanks

Cristian just wanted you to know I used your springs / pistons/ bladders /
On my car for the southern nats and they work great put them all on at the same time Sunday morning and I gained a lap on my old time and I was Abel to keep myself in the big show ended up placing 7th overall and that wasn't an easy task but the car felt great and was very consistent

Thank you for a good product
Looking forward to trying out battery hold down and the chassie

Considering I called Pete my nemesis for the weekend, I would say he was pretty fast (especially since I saw his rear bumper a lot ). Good racing Pete! It was a blast having a race within a race with you for multiple races. I also used RSD pistons, bladders, and springs...love em!

Good stuff guys!

Sorry Kyle had not seen your post. The nuts are M2 (2mm) threads. Write me a message at the store and I'll send you off some better ones I have been using.

I have also finished the design on an aluminum servo mount like the ones popping up on all the newer cars. We are gonna get some testing done and once we iron them out, we will release them.

Kyle, I just realized I missed your servo saver question. With the servo saver you must use all 3 springs to make it work properly.

Is RSD coming out with a floating servo mount like the T4 and BD7?
