Any other suggestions? I will run it at this track with LRP 13.5 X12 blinky mode. http://www.dhi-cup.dk/

And as a bonus, does blinky mean that boost is not alloved, or any speedo timing? I have a sppedo without boost, but with 20 degree timing.

Thanks alot.
Linear springs are the first thing to try.

Blinky means no timing on the ESC at all, any timing can be done on the motor only.
They linked to the list on the BRCA website which has moved to here;
http://www.brca.org/sites/www.brca.org/files/library_files/12csec/BRCA%20Approved%20Blinky%20ESC's%20v2.2%202012.pdf
This is the original ROAR list;

Default Finally Here!!!



RSD072 RSD XRAY/ Spec R R1 DCJ (Narrow Axle)

These move the Joint out 1mm by using a narrower inside hub bearing. This makes the joint work at a more efficient angle, at the expense of a less durable bearing. As a plus, it effectively becomes a "51mm ECS"



RSD073 RSD XRAY/ Spec R R1 DCJ (Wide Axle)

Practically identical to XRAY 52mm "ECS" in dimensions. The coupling is even interchangeable with XRAY units.

Does the Wide Axle version require different bearings than what comes with the kit? Sorry, never used DCJs before and not sure if there is anything else I need.

Thanks,
Chuck

No need for different bearings with the wide axle since it is virtually identical to the xray dimensions.

DCJ and ECS are the same thing. Dual Cardan Joint is the "technical" term, ECS is the XRAY proprietary name. Sort of like saying paper tissue vs. kleenex.

Thanks for the info. Your products for the TC6 are excellent and happy you are supporting X-Ray since that is what I'm currently driving. Will have my order in soon.

Hey guys, quick question.

I'm in the process of bulding my t4 and was wondering about the front bumper issues. Is it still best to use the t3 front bumper so the top brace and bulkheads align or is the new, shorter bumper ok? I ca sealed the chassis and screw holes and I haven't heard much about this issue for a while on this car so I figured I'd ask.

thanks,

Eric Lee

Some people have managed to damage their chassis'

I would either fit the T3 bumper with it's corresponding posts, or get the new Xray part;

Or you could get the original bumper brace made by Diggity Designs (copied by xray within a matter of weeks) Damon will get it to you faster, as xray ones are freshly copied and probly not real available yet. http://www.diggitydesigns.com/Xray_T4_BumperBrace.html

What are a couple of quick solutions to get rid of an on-power push?

Make sure you don't have too much droop up front, and use harder springs on rear (2.7)

Yea...I am so sure Xray scoured the internet trying to find a brace some one started making a month ago because they couldnt think of it. Makes perfect sense!
