The setup window is much wider and in comparison to the 6.1 this thing will take more speed through the corners because of its flex, even if your setup is not spot on. My 6.1 and 6.2 are dialed in, I only go for the 6.2 because I am a fanboy

I used the 1/1/1.5mm pistons with AE 40wt oil plus the "old" RSD yellow (rear) and silver (front) springs this season on different indoor tracks and had podiums only (including two wins) in the LRP-HPI-Challenge in Germany.
For the 6.2 I am at 3x1.15 pistons, the 6.2 RSD springs light blue all around with AE 40wt oil.

ALOT of folks swear by the Yokomo Pink fronts/ Blue rears, but I want to give my R&D 6.2 springs a go. Has anyone found success with these instead of using the Yokes?

I was kind of skeptical on them when they first came out but now I love them.
How do you measure the correct place to glue it?

You can cut the top of the lower shock eyelet 1.5-2mm so the lower spring retainer sits lower...
