The DCJ's are in production right now. I would say about a month out of being ready.

As for prices, the US Postal Service Raised the prices, not us. Our website uses weight calculated pricing that is tied to the USPS server and that dictates our shipping cost. We do not set the pricing, it's automatically generated.

I purchased a set of reflex racing springs for my 6.1, and all i can say is wow.
I didnt think there would be that big a difference but it really changed the initilal turn in of the car compared to stock springs, and change of direction was much more solid.

Really looking forward to getting some DCJ's when they come out.

Beth.

the bladders should be ready soon. Hopefully by the end of the month. This time of the year it is always tough because of lunar year holiday. So much gets held up...

Evochick, I am glad you like the springs. That's just the tip of the iceberg on Reflex stuff

Power Terminals, late next week maybe? 10 days tops.

Rear bumpers, a while...

We are currently looking for a new CF shop. The last one was terribly unreliable. If anyone knows of one that actually WANTS work, please PM me. I have had 2 leads from different people, but the shops don't seem to have interest in our projects since they all stopped answering my emails.

No problem, sorry guys. I will have a diagram over the weekend on the site.

In the meantime, let me describe it.

1.Use the long 2mm screw and slide it into the hard anodized bearing post.
2.Take the M2 nut and insert it into the channel in the back of the aluminum base.
3.Take the 2 6x3.2.5mm bearings and slide them into the post
4.Use the 2 M3x0.5mm washers to take up the extra space on the post.
5.(optional) Take the M2 washer and slide over the M2 Screw on the post
6.Tighten the screw and post assembly on to the aluminum base.
7.Install on the chassis.

Hopefully it is clear enough. I will work on the diagram over the weekend guys, sorry, it just slipped my mind.

Just got some RSD springs to try, as well as the RSD pistons. No bladders yet, though.

The best the car has been so far was:
front gear diff w/ 500k
TRF shocks, drilled caps, 3-hole pistons, AE 45wt
AE Silver front / green rear

I'll be using the RSD pistons and springs with the AE shocks, though. What's a good starting point for shock oil and springs? My shock caps are drilled.

I'd rather err on the side of softer/less responsive, and smoother/easier to drive.

It sure would be nice if the pistons were white. I can't see the bubbles! >_<

Mike, sorry for the late reply.

What surface are you running on? What is grip like?

I run the SWEEP oils, which I feel are a bit light, but on our med-high asphalt track I run 550 CST F and 500CST rear.

On Carpet, I usually start a 600cst F and 550 R.

On another note...

QTEQ Power Terminals will be sold out until Mid-March. QTEQ is straight up out of them!

Also, we are receiving the production samples of our 7075-T6 aluminum hard anodized spool cups early next week!!! These are far more durable than the composite ones and look really good! I'll have pictures early next week.
