Sounds like it could be end of this month or march before Rc America has the aluminum chassis in stock. I personally look forward to trying it at Kissimmee for preworlds and nationals since that track is very high bite

Hey guys, what non-xray DCJ/ECS brands are you using and can you recommend? I can't get my head around paying the xray prices on these bits... I don't run much so I can't justify the xray prices behind low wear rates

Cheers
Paul

I liked Arrowmax very much. Now I don't like them anymore because I got myself some HUDY ecs shafts
Jk, Arrowmax are very well made and the v2 should have the pin breaking issue solved...

Regards,
David

You can also check out the DCJ's on Reflexracing.com, these work pretty well also at a reasonable price.

Another vote for Reflex Racing DCJ's;

http://www.reflexracing.net/RSD-XRAY...cs_p_1673.html

Their narrow axle versions use a thinner inside bearing, so get some spares if you choose them.
They also have a wide axle version which uses the kit bearings.

I've had great success with both the Reflex racing ones, as well as the Spec-r v2 ones.

I've only used the Xray and Spec-R v2's. In mod, outside and 17.5 inside the Spec R version has been very very reliable for me.

Hey Paul, nice to see you here! Email me at contact@reflexracing.net and I can get you taken care of with DCJs. Any other questions or inquiries I can help with too. It is nice to see you are back to racing, even if it's on the old continent.

Hey guys I'm new to this forum and I have few questions about different chassis to run as I'm interested in trying something new. I have a t4'14 and I'll be driving on a new track soon, I'm thinking it will be a med bite parking lot track to low bite.

What's your guys thoughts on the RSD full conversion chassis? Or if any ones running the CSO conversion chassis (which looks very flexible) or how about the smokem layshafts for the stock t4'14 chassis? Or if there's other chassis that you guys may recommend?

I can't seem to find these anywhere (xray part #303710 alum rear 2split suspension holders) and it seems that everywhere is back ordered??

Thanks

To have different tunning options, also have a spare chassis

I believe the 14T4 has the same tuning options out the box as the RSD conversion. I would say the 14T4 would have a better setup window than the RSD. Only reason why I think you would consider the RSD conversion, as if you wanted to save some money converting the 13T4 over to the 14 version without purchasing the entire 14 kit for $500.00 plus.

Since you already have the 14T4 kit I would say, your wasting money buying the RSD when you already have something similar, if not better. If you want to have more tuning options on the T4. Spend the money on springs, sway bars, split blocks for the front, the center chassis post, spares and even maybe a diff for the front.

In my opinion the 14T4 is a stellar kit out the box and needs nothing to be fast other than a strong build and a good wheel. The option parts listed above will offer the wider range of tuning your looking for, however isn't necessary to be fast with the kit (out of the box)

The split blocks and the center post is on my list. The only place I know that has the split blocks is RC Market, (in stock) anyway. To be honest, I want to try the split blocks and the center post, but I haven't fully got the most out of the car (out of the box) as every weekend the car keeps getting faster for me. I truly believe this kit can be and is, a chassis that is hard to beat out of the box without one option part, hands down..... Until I can't get the car any faster out the box, I don't see any reason for the option parts.
