Just got my RX4 kit and WOW. The graphite on this chassis looks fantastic. Well cut too. Looking forward to running it soon.

Building the rx4 and was wondering, what is a good starting combination for the front and rear inserts.

Just wanted to report that the V2 DCJs are working awesome on my TC6.1 WC.
I had struggled with keeping the V1's together... the pins would slip out after a couple of runs even with the "by the instructions" rebuild with shrink wrap and all. Had to keep tightening them regularly.

Two weekends on the V2's now with no problems.
Also, the narrow option is the way to go... direct fit, and the blade doesn't bottom out in the one way.
Thanks Cristian.

The RX4 kit should have come with initial recommendations. The sheet that came with mine said front inserts should be single dot outside ff and fr, and 2 dot inside for rf and rr. My measurements show the recommendations sheet being pretty dead on with stock T4 in the front, and more toe in the rear ~.5 degrees.

That said, here's a sheet I made up that represents what I have seen and measured, I've not measured 100% of the positions, but it should extrapolate well. I am running the stock XRAY settings as indicated on the sheet, available here. Note, slight variations in tightening down the blocks can cause a bit of skew, so use these as a reference, YMMV.

Keep us updated, Andrew. I'm really interested in this kit for my T4 but I'd like your input on how it handles on our carpet.

Cool, thanks Ethan! Got my kit from a buddy who decided not to use it so I didn't get the recommendation sheet

Stiffer. There is a spring chart on the rsd website that shows all of the different springs and rates

Are you asking about the T4 short springs (20mm) or standard length springs?

They're quite a bit stiffer. They aren't on the chart, but they're 16.7lb according to the product info.

I find they give prodigious front-end grip, especially under braking. But I struggle with being overly loose in sweeping corners when I use them.

Hey guys, we have some new stuff starting to trickle in over the past week.

I will list the products tonight and over the next couple of days.

We have coming:

-12th scale center springs
-12th scale front springs
-12.5lb Carpet spring (slightly softer than XRAY 2.3)
-16.0lb Asphalt Linear Spring (2.8)
-14.7-15.2 lb Progressive Asphalt spring (between Yellow and Silver)

We have 1 more spring rate coming and we will re-do our asphalt and carpet spring set.

The new 16lb (2.8) spring will be available by itself for now. Perhaps we will include it in the carpet spring set.

Our closed, lowered layshaft bulkheads will be here by the end of the week finally.


On another note, the Orange springs are my spring of choice with the RX4 in the front on carpet. If the car is unstable, it probably means it is under-dampened. Try going up in oil. It is a 16.7lb spring. I will start testing with the 16.0 this week to see if I like them more.
