Hey Cristian can you do custom Chassis in Carbon for other makes? I loved your stuff for the TC6 but now I am driving a VBC D06 and would like a softer Carbon Chassis that would allow me to use the Spec-R Suspension mounts.

I just built and tested my RSD7 aluminum chassis last Saturday and was greatly impressed. It drives better than my BD7 2014 with aluminum chassis/short shock or set up w/carbon chassis.(selling it now).

I have the RSD7 set up with the lowered shock towers, stock 6.2 upper deck and it is very consistent lap to lap. With limited setup time I was just as fast as with the yokomo.(The yok was not as consistent lap to lap.)

This week end I will try the bulkhead braces to see how it changes the feel. I am very exited about this car!

I can, however I don't have a chassis or chassis file. If you send me the parts I can try to do so, but the drawing fee is typically the expensive part. If you have access to a solidworks or dxf file, it would not be much more than just a regular carbon chassis.

Default Bulkhead braces

I have the 6.2 with aluminum chassis do you still recommend the bulkhead braces? or is this more for the carbon chassis

The braces are an additional tunning part for both carbon and aluminum chassis. They can be used with stock and aftermarket top braces as well.

From Reflexracing: "For example, if you want more on power rear traction, install the rear brace. If you want more on power steering, install the front.
When using both braces, the car will stay a little bit flatter at high speed, will be easier on tires, the response will increase in tight corners and the car will be easier to drive in sweeping corners."

In my testing, the Alum chassis flattened out the feel of the car and I was able to soften up the suspension a bit more to pick up some more roll. I did try the braces with the Alum chassis, as well. Definite increase in response, but flatter again. I took them off but will try them on my standard chassis car.

Default Custom chassis

How about doing a aluminum chassis for tc4 drivetrain and tc6.2 suspension? Use low profile shocks, and custom shock towers. Also maybe make some input shafts to use the b44.3 gear diffs.

Any updates on the aluminum chassis, specifically the custom one I ordered?

Cristian,

Have you considered making some retainers for T4'15 swaybars that will fit onto T3/T4 bulkheads? I don't imagine it'd be a problem if the swaybars fit a bit higher. Spacers could be added to the endlinks to compensate.

-Mike
