Oh, I forgot you will have to grind the right side of the servo saver off.

Hi Christian,

I was doing some refinements on my four wheel steering conversation. I also simulated the VCS3-Shocks (TC6 & TC6.1) on the shocktower for the short shocks (the one I designed for the T4 shocks & short TShox). I then asked myself which length your new springs will have. In my simulation 20mm seems to be a good choice.
One thing I see problems upcoming is the travel with the actual spring cups. These limit the uptravel to 3.6mmwith the TC6 shock shaft ball cup (31249) which are even shorter than the turnbuckle eyelits (31305) the TC6.1 uses.

Can you leak some news on your upcoming tuning parts for the "short shock" conversation for us TC6 drivers

Our new Short Springs are 20mm in length.

The conversion prototypes arrived today. I have to do some testing in order to see which towers work best before we go into production. I am testing them fully tonight.

The conversion will basically be 2 shock towers, some new spring cups and some new shock ball cups and ball ends. With the 20mm springs and the other items, the conversion still has about 3mm of uptravel when the chassis is fully bottomed out front and rear.

I have a solid few hundred packs on my rsd v2 dcjs with no failures or issues to report. Very smooth and not too much slow. Very comparable to the hudy ecs at a much cheaper cost. Looking forward to your new products for the t4.

Same here. I love my DCJs and as for upgrades to my TC6.1, it's probably the most noticeable difference in how the car handles. I started out with the V1s and they were great. I did eventually have a couple of issues with them mainly due to me completely neglecting them and abusing them every single weekend. The set screw would eventually loosen up and one of the roll pins would work its way through the heat shrink tubing. But now I have the V2s and they're great! There's no set screw and no shrink wrap! I can neglect them for way longer with no issues. I just ran a two hour enduro and had to drive about 80 minutes of it because my team mates were having issues with their cars. No issues at all with my DCJs. They still look great.

Nice!
Will there be a full line of 20mm springs (from teal to orange)? I would like to see them offered as a complete set as I am going to upgrade my two TC6

The springs are coming, but they are different springs all together. The rates will start around 13.5 lbs all the way to 17.0. If we find a need for softer, we'll look into it.

The new springs are also going to be "carpet recommended" and "asphalt recommended". It does not mean they won't work on the other surface, it just means that they are optimized for the surface stated.

Macki, that's great news. I am glad they are working well for you.

I placed an order and received a wrong part. They haven't returned my email. What is the best email to use?

I am thinking about moving from my trusty TC6.1 to give the Yokomo BD7 a try - I have the TC6.1 V2 DCJ with narrow axle/bearings - would this fit in the Yokomo does anyone know as I like the build of the reflex ones (and I already have them).

I would like to use the V2 dcj's in my Xray T3.

What is the ball diameter on the half shaft ?

Can I use the Xray blades ?

What half shaft lengths are available ?

Which axle, short/wide, would I need for a normal setup ?

Thanks.

Jag, we make specific XRAY DCJs now. I prefer the narrow axle ones because I use the RSD spool cups as well these are roughly equivalent to a 51mm assembly. The wide ones are dimensionally nearly identical to 52mm ECSs.

Sorry, our bone will jot fit the Yokomo unless you use and AE spool. However, our couplings and axles work with Yokomo bones, so you can still get the benefits of the captured pin design.
