Trigger, yes. Our asphalt springs have a 14.0mm ID and a length of 20mm.
Pm me what address you would like them sent to and I will get them out tomorrow.

Hi Christian,
Are we still needing the 5mm hx and 2x10 pins with RSD AE TC6.1 Dual Cardan Joint V2 (narrow axle with bearings)? I just placed an order Sunday and came across this thread.

However with the hexes and pins, any industry standard 5mm hex and 2x10 pins will work. This means XRAY, HB, Tamiya, Yokomo ones all work.

We are working hard on getting these re stocked, but we are at the mercy of the factory. When we get all the items back in stock we will make sure to make a package for them.

On another note, We received the 4th spring in the Carpet linear spring set and some cool CF wing holders. More information and pics coming tomorrow night.

Yes, you still need the Hexes and pins. All of our DCJs use the same metric axle and drive pins.

got you, placed an order. You may want to put a side note when one purchases the DCJ's so one can order them together.

I'd like to try out the original single bellcrank on my RSD6.2 for the sake of comparison. Can someone please explain or post an image of how it's supposed to work?

The stock bellcrank will only work with the servo mounted laterally, as in the stock setup. Of course, the RSD6.2 doesn't support that mounting option since the floating servo mount only allows you to install the servo straight.

I'm looking at the chassis, and there just seems to be no physical way to mount a servo to work with the original bellcrank. Anyone have any ideas?

There is two ways to use a east/west servo mount with a stock bell crank.
1) put a ballsocket in place of the 3mm screw that holds the ackerman adjuster.
2)contact "YoDog" he makes a servo saver replacement for the stock bellcrank for a east west servo mount.

@vivo quevas

Thanks for the tips. Yeah, I wound up going the ball socket route. The linkage wouldn't clear the stock steering cam, so I had to dremel it off. Appreciate the help!


On a side note, I have to say it's pretty irritating all these modifications are required to get the original bellcrank working. The RSD website says specifically "compatible with TC6 Center post Bell Crank" and mentions the single-bellcrank support as an option to lower the cost of the kit, but doesn't really work does it?

Normally RSD stuff is pretty good, but I get the disappointing sense this functionally was never really tested out.

Has anyone tried any of the progressive T4 springs on carpet?

I have been testing out the various linear springs andwhile they make the car safe to drive and consistent I'm trying to find just that little bit more.

just to say the reflex racing springs are excellent, i got some for my Xray T4 for asphalt, i really wasn't happy with the way the car was going at my local track on the xray springs. Since i have had them on my car, i have smashed my PB, and set new PB's every time it has been dry.

So thanks to Cristian for making such excellent springs , it is just a shame there is no distribution here in the UK, as i'm sure they would be seen on a lot more cars over here. Only took about two weeks to get mine, so was really happy

Thanks!

There is a good chance Schumacher might become out UK distributor. Nthis would be pretty cool since they would try to put the product in a lot of local shops. Please let Mark over there how much you like the stuff!

Default RSD021 on TC6.1

Want to use RSD021 on TC6.1.
Do I have to use RSD026 or RSD027?
What is the difference between the two?
In which case RSD026 and in which case RSD027?
Why not the original kit part?
Are the 5x10x4 bearings in the kit or do I have to buy them extra?
As I understand it I also have to buy RSD025?
If so, why?
Aren't these in the kit?
Which 3 hole piston to buy?

Christian, will the V2 captured pin DCJ coupling (RSD070-1) replace the coupling in the V1 DCJs?

For the dcjs, you must use any industry standard 5mm or 4mm hexes (5mm work best). The RSD ones work well. You must also use a M2x10 drive pin. All TC's except for AE ones use these parts. This is the reason we changed them over.

The size of the bearing depends on the car and the width of the axle. With the TC6 you must use 5x10x3 bearings and the WIDE axle unis only. For the 6.1, the narrow ones work better and include the bearing you must replace.

Bigtez, yes the new couplings are a replacement for the old dcjs.

SO I HAVE TO BUY PARTNUMBER RSD026 NOT RSD027 FOR THE TC6.1WE?

SO I HAVE TO BUY PARTNUMBER RSD070 FOR THE TC6.1WE?
(they come with the bearings included, as I see it on your website)


I'M ALSO GOING TO ORDER THE SOFT BLADDERS FOR THE TC6.1WE. THAT WOULD BE PARTNUMBER RSD012?

I'M PLANNING ON ORDERING THREE HOLE PISTONS.
THAT WOULD BE PARTNUMBER RSD006?

I ASK BECAUSE I SEE OTHER PISTONS ON YOUR WEBSITE TOO.

ON YOUR WEBSITE AT PART NUMBER RSD0006 IT SAYS 1.0,1.0,1.5MM. I DON'T UNDERSTAND. THAT WOULD BE A TYPO? WHAT DIAMETER ARE IN THAT SET?


WHICH ONES BEST TO USE ON ASPHALT/TARMAC LOW TO MEDIUM GRIP?

THANK YOU FOR THE INFORMATION
