The Website is down

Godaddy, who is our current web host made some change on the server side and now our cart will not talk to the database. They claim nothing is wrong. BS.
They literally told me that it was "magic" that caused it. They said all things break and that our website just broke, just like when cars break down. Our site was not touched on our end and my a friend of mine, who is the greatest programmer alive that I know, said it is not possible. Some setting had to be changed on the server side. There is no way around it. He spent all day trying to make it work and it did not.

With that, we are already working on a new site, a hosted solution which is already up and functional, but not very populated yet.

By tonight, I'll have the RSD line up again. The domain will be different for the next couple of days while the server change propagates. In the meantime, you can stop by and see the progress at:

http://reflex-sd.3dcartstores.com/

If I am and continue to be MIA, is because I am on this in deep basement, no shower till I finish mode...

Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

CT

Do you have a picture of the 1mm hole.

Front:
-1,1,1.5 Piston 550cst oil
-15.5lb spring
-Outside link on tower caps (shorter) 3mm underneath the inside link, 2mm outside
-3A Roll center blocks
-4 Deg Caster
-Shocks 1 hole out on shock tower
-6 on droop
-5mm ride height
-Slipper Spool tight
-Black sway bar

Rear
-1,1,1.5 Piston 450cst oil
-13.5lb spring
-Outside link on tower caps 2mm underneath inside, 3mm outside
-3A Roll center blocks
-shocks 2 holes out on shock tower
-4 on droop
-5.5 mm ride height
-Gear diff 700cst oil
-2.5 inboard toe 1 deg toe hub (if you are not running toe in hubs, 3 degs inboard is enough toe)
-Black sway bar

The set-up is super consistent and fast week in-week out. I like that I have not had to change it in a long time. To adjust your roll stiffness (i.e. if it leans to hard) you can remove shims from the inside camber link locations for minute adjustments. If it is not enough, I change my spring rate by 1lb before I change my shock angles (since changing angles affects damping as well as spring rate).

-5.5mm ride height
Can you put this in a Associated setup sheet. Thanks

Mike, I will try to get that to you as soon as possible, but I am swamped wit the new site launch, since it had to be kind-of on-the-fly.

With that, the store is LIVE and Taking orders. All the RSD Products are available for purchase again.

Thanks for your patience and understanding guys!

Default TC6 Shock cap holes, 1mm

*** I just realized that these are pictures of a TC5 shock cap. Sorry about that, I'll get pictures of the TC6 caps shortly! (too many different cars on the bench at one time) ***

Just did a rebuild of my TC6 shocks with the new bladders, and getting zero rebound is .... waaaaay easier, then with the stock kit bladders, got my reflex racing pistons and springs on there too ..... very smooth.

Here you go http://www.racerlog.com/w/images/9/94/CT_standard.pdf

CT will have to fill you in on the missing stuff, id guess camber is something like 1.5F/2R or 2/2 or something like that, front toe is probably .5 out, and wheelbase is probably the kit setting as well, but only he knows for sure

Finally installed my RSD options on my TC6 shocks and I must say, I'm very impressed. I had no issue with the stock bladders, But these feel very nice indeed. I'm not sure when you would want zero rebound, unless there was ridiculous bite. I built mine with about 30% rebound, Looking forward to trying them this weekend.

Mike
