I will give you a number later on tonight. The savings is about 1.5 g per a arm if I remember correctly. Total maybe 8-10g in savings?

Default TC6.2 DCJ

TC6.2 DCJ

Can someone explain to me the difference between the AE and RSD. Why do you need a different wheel hex for the RSD version.

Our DCJ uses the industry standard axle size. It requires a 2mm hex pin and a slightly different diameter opening on the hex for the larger size axle and pin. Basically, every car in the market except for the AE Car uses this type of hex and pin.

Would I just need 1 pair of hexes for the front or 2 pair for the whole car?

Hi Cristian, do you have any idea when you'll have some more RSD DCJ's and power banana's in?

The DCJ's are in stock. With the exception of the wide axle, which we are not sure if we will get back in stock.

Power Bananas have been back ordered for a bit, but I should be getting an order in within 10 days or so.

Any particular reason for not getting the wide axle version in?
I've found the wider axles to be faster at my local tracks (back to back testing)

Not enough demand for them right now. Most people select the narrow axles as they are slightly more efficient and they tend to lastt longer.

If all conditons are even when you do your testing, I would try to make the front slightly stiffer with the narrower axles, maybe by standing up the shocks 1 hole. The narrower axles don't create as much suspension bind so maybe this is what is causing this to be the case for you.

I have personally never noticed a difference in lap times. However the durability is better for the narrow axle.

Sorry, missed this post. The 12th scale body is almost ready. We are waiting on production samples in order to submit them to ROAR for approval. Once we get the okay, and know if we do not need to make any changes, we will go into production. I hope we can have it ready before IIC.

I am very happy with the performance of it. The body is a little more aggressive than the AMR, but not quite as much as the R8C. It tends to be a little "freer" in the corners and flatter cornering at the front, which gives a little more steering.

For set-up, typically I run a slightly softer center spring with it over the AMR, which helps tame the car a little bit.

Our goal with the body is for it to provide less fade through higher efficiency so that the car can run stronger throughout the run. I feel we achieved this with the body. In 13.5, I am slightly faster on hot lap and about 2-3 seconds faster over the AMR.

Ok, thats what I'm looking for. I pretty much run the amr all the time, found everything else either too aggressive leading to fade in the end if the run or just way too much steering in 13.5. Thanks
