The Associated TC6.1 Worlds car kit builds upon the already-successful ROAR and BRCA national championship-winning TC6.1 platform with several performance-enhancing upgrades that boost the car to the next level. The TC6.1 WC is built on a new ultra-narrow 2.25mm-thick carbon-fiber chassis with optimized flex along with maximum chassis-roll ground clearance. The new narrow chassis helps reduce chassis drag during the hardest cornering. Also included in the TC6.1 WC are the Factory Team Vertical Ballstud Bearing Caps. Previously available only as a Factory Team upgrade, the vertical ballstud bearing caps provide finer increments of adjustment. This increased adjustability will allow the racer to tune the suspension with even more precision than before.
The TC6.1 Factory Team came feature-packed, and the new TC6.1 Worlds Car is no exception. Rear hub carriers and caster blocks feature integrated inserts for caster and rear-toe angle adjustment. This means you can adjust these angles by merely changing the inserts and not the whole assembly. Front and rear anti-roll bars feature the H.D.R.C. (High Definition Roll Control) system. Roll stiffness is controlled and adjusted by the two wires that mount into the sides of an aluminium center member and link to the suspension arms. The aluminium center member rolls on a bearing surface to reduce friction and provide ultra-precise movement.
The lightweight rear gear differential provides maximum performance, adjustability, and low maintenance, while the front spool features replaceable composite outdrives that still retain the low-friction, free-movement performance of the CVA blades. Symmetrical blue aluminium bulkheads are compatible with TC6 chassis components. Factory Team VCS3 shocks feature hard-anodized threaded bodies with bottom-loaded seals. The VCS3 shocks are super smooth and have increased stroke, all adding up to improved traction. Multiple Ackermann adjustment positions, improved steering input rate, and Blue Titanium turnbuckles with eyelet ballcups, all add up to an easier-to-tune platform.
