Default New Set-ups and tips added to RSD6 Page

I will try to keep up with the chassis reference guide as much as I can. Tonight, I added Aaron Morley's set-up for carpet and some installation tips for the chassis.

I found that if you just use button heads the material is weak from being counter sunk on the opposite side and you don't get good/consistent clamping. Having zero tweak in the chassis is HUGE and can take a great set up and turn it into garbage. Just my 2 cents.
Canyon, this was probably because of the motor mount bracket too. Now that I have the little bracket replaced and I removed the most rearward screw the chassis balances much better on a tweak station. Practically identical pre-load on all corners. Something I never even had with the TC6.

I will try the counter sunk washers and screws to see how it does...

We are still working on the top plate. That is the next product on the docket after the Battery hold down system and some more piston options.

I agree that probably has a lot to do with it. I look forward to trying mine with the new front mount and removing the rear screw. I'm still very impressed with how balanced the car is and how much mechanical traction it makes. The tire wear is far less to any other car I've driven on asphalt. In mod I'm able to use a lot more trigger and steer the car where I want it to go, rather than babying the throttle and fighting understeer.

We have found the car to generate better grip by using only 2 screws on the motor mount. The forward-most screw and the "middle" screw that bolts to the front of the lay shaft mount. I personally have been considering cutting the motor mount right at this spot to test. It also prevents tweak in the chassis a bit better as the motor mount torque only is attached at 1 point. I will post some pics up in a bit.
What diffrent about the motor mount bracket?

I purchased Or8ital's RSD6 TC6.1. This chassi is sweet!!!

We have only 1 chassis kit left.

The new batch has already been ordered. So after we sell out, you will be able to back order the RSD6 on our store. The re-stock will take about 3 weeks.

Default NOW IN STOCK!!!


RSD021-2 DCJ Coupling Replacements (1 pair)


RSD021-1 DCJ Rebuild Kit (for 2 universals)

They are now in stock! These are also compatible with XRAY ECS shafts, so if you need to freshen them up and don't want to spend the cost of half a TC6, you can use these.

What is the advantage to using these instad of the stock ones that come with the TC6.1 kit?

These are replacements for our DCJ's, not the TC6 standard drive shafts.

The advantage for a DCJ is that at extreme turning angles chatter is decreased and wheel speed is equalized better. This yields smoother, more consistent steering traction.

Christian, I see on you setup sheets you are using standard TC5/TC6 anti-roll bars.

Have you or anyone else experimented with both both the standard and the TC6.1 HD anti-roll bars on the RSD6?

I am yet to try the new bars. I need to order a set so I can offer an evaluation.
