Is it needed, no. But will it make your car better. DEFINITELY. Hands down makes the TC6.2 a better car on carpet. I don't necessarily think it is only it being an aluminum chassis (although the lower cg is helpful) but rather decreasing the excessive flex the 6.2 has. The stock chassis also improved when combined with our top deck, although the gains were much higher when using both.

I have not done a lot of testing on asphalt with the Aluminum chassis, but the RSD7 Carbon chassis worked very well. If the track is high grip, the aluminum chassis should do well.

Any idea when the lightweight suspension will be in stock?

Since we're talking about RSD parts, how hard is it to adapt this to the 6.2 chassis?

I don't know if it can be made to work. The bulkhead distance is not the same. Also, the sway bar cylinder gets in the way.

I was considering using a longer bolt through the sway bar cylinder anchor point and looking to secure it from below with a nut. Might have to get one and give it a shot.

Hoping for some help in relation to diff height.
Is it a case of higher diff for low grip tracks and lower for higher grip?
By changing diff height i will also end up changing axle angle, how critical is this?

The axle height is a tuning tool that personally I hardly ever run. However, in theory, too high or too low will make the car stiffer under roll than a "centered" drive shaft position.

On the 6.2 I always run my diffs in the mid low position. If I wanted a little more roll in the middle of the corner, I could raise the rear diff to the mid high position. If I wanted my car to be a little flatter, I would lower them more.

The effect on the suspension is probably due to drive shaft angles wanting to straighten out under load. The more angle, the stiffer the suspension should act.

Angle should also have a bit of an effect on straight line traction. When the bones are angled upwards towards the diff, the car would tend to lift and lose traction as the car would "squat" removing force on the tires. Opposite would be the case ( and how most cars are from the box) if the drive shafts are angled upwards towards the wheel. This would force the arm down exerting more force on the tire.

Thanks Cristian.
The fact that it is something that you rarely adjust, is enough for me to leave at standard mid/low myself and concentrate on other adjustments.
Good to know how it works though

I personally have had great results with the front diff in the high position and the rear in the low position

I run the diffs full low most of the time. I have found that raising the diff will give you more roll and traction on that end of the car.

So my dad and I are considering a return to on road after a 15 year hiatus. I am considering the tc6.2 or the detc410. Granted this is the tc6.2 thread I want to know why I should choose this platform over the durango?
