Thanks Mike.

WD40, just do a google search for reflex racing. Our website will come up and you can order from there.

The bladders are part no. RSD012. Enter that part no. in our page's search box and they will pull up.

Default RSD6 Carpet Set-Up

https://reflexracing.3dcartstores.co..._Mikes2012.pdf

This is easily the best carpet car I have ever had. It took a bit to get it right, but I was able to finish within 6-7 seconds on the same lap as Ralph Burch in Every qualifier and Main. Some were even closer. Top 5 cars were all on the lead lap. I was usually 3rd or 4th. Considering the competition was Burch, Mike Dumas and Chris Adams, I am super pumped with the performance of the car.

This is my first weekend with the car on carpet EVER. Only my 3rd time running mod on carpet EVER.

The set-up is extremely neutral. Perfect balance of front steering and rear grip as well as super stable and predictable. The car had very linear steering which is how I like my cars. Typically carpet cars are either twitchy going into the corner and push out or they push going in and rotate very hard. Both styles are fast, however hard for me to drive. This set-up is a balance of both. Good entry , good rotation, lots of stability. Fast lap was within less of a tenth of Ralph's fast lap. At the nationals, I was like 3-5 tenths back.

If you are asking about the tc6 you bought from me, they are already in there. That car had every available reflex part on it available at the time.

My set-up from Rd.2 of the Texas EOS is probably pretty good. If lacking grip, use blue instead of red springs all around and maybe 500cst all around instead of 550. That race was on a parking lot that was sugar watered.

We are working on a comprehensive spring chart for reference. We will add as we get more springs to try. Our goal is to try to fill all the gaps in between our springs in order to provide a more comprehensive range of springs.
Hey Cristian, you may want to check out the KFactory spring kits as they are nearly a perfect fit for the TC6 and come in sets of 10 pair that are all close together in rate. If you want, I can send you my set for testing.

Kevin! It looks awesome. I'll hook it up with more stickers soon. I am getting Mike Dumas to refer me to his sticker maker this week. You guys running foam?

I wish I was going to vegas too. It's just hard to get away and the trip is a bit expensive for me to swing this year. If we magically have an out of this world September month this year I'll try to swing it, however, it has been a bit up and down.

With that, by the end of the month we should be a full line TC6 shop. We will bring on the full spare catalog, some kits, Reedy motors/ batteries, LRP/Orion Speedos, bodies, amongst others. We are even planning on bringing on the Hot Bodies TCXX if it is available.

Our development will stay with the RSD6, but we are just trying to spread our scope a little bit and diversify.

Yes. For our Clubraces we prefer foam tires. They last longer and are a lot cheaper than rubber. Our track has a lot of hard left curves that are hard on tires. It is a also a lot of fun to drive these. That is why I asked for harder springs some months ago.

I like the stickers I am still holding some back for a new body

Congrats for the extension of your business!
