We have coming at the end of the month/ early March.
-TC6 battery hold down
-TC6 rear bumper
-TC6 -5.5mm lowered shock towers/conversion
-XRAY Battery hold down
-XRAY Front Bumper Brace/ Transponder mount
-XRAY T4 3/6 hole Machined Pistons
-XRAY T4 4 hole Machined Pistons
-20mm Carpet Spring set (3 Types)
-20mm Asphalt Spring set (4 Types)

I think that might be it for now. We are also working on a fan mount for the T4, similar to what we have for the TC6.
Awesome, can't wait. Are the pistons going to be the same diameter as stock? Any bigger (tighter) and I assume it would change dampening/pack?

Ethan, same diameter for now. The car already likes light oils so it will just be a matter of having a better finish on the piston. Smoother surface finish really helps on a better shock build.

Jeff, we are still looking for a place to get bumpers made. Our previous source dried up

Thanks

Dave, we are working on those as well. However they will take longer because it involves mold making and material testing.

I'm glad to see that the T4 upper bumper mount / transponder holder made the cut . Will it be made from 3mm or 3.5mm material?

It actually will be made out of aluminum, so it can be threaded for the transponder mount and have a more effective design.

Cool. I'm running a DD bumper brace now, its 3mm and only 1/2 of it actually contacts the bulkheads. Don't get me wrong tho, its done its job many many times over.

My biggest question is...WILL IT BE ANNODIZED ORANGE?

My dcj pins that hold it all together keep snapping. I have narrow v2. Does this happen a lot?

That sounds odd to me. I have been running them in mod, and while I have bent shafts when the c-hub and steering knuckle break, I have yet to see broken pins. Can you post a pic?

As AWD stated, this is not normal. If you can, send them back and we will send you a replacement set assembled free of charge.

Ok, I was finally able to spend the whole day testing the 6.2 in TC setup and I can honestly say this is the best TC I have ever had. Within one hour I was within a 1/10th of the fastest lap ever turned at that track. And the track didn't have a lot of traction in it (carpet). So I just started putting different tires on it to see what it would do. It ran the same times with three different brands all ranging from 27 to 32's. The only tires it didn't like was the Sweep 30 and they would fall off about 3 min. into a run. The best were Jaco blues. They didn't fall off. I was running the V2 joints and had no problems what so ever. Thanks Cristian this is a great car. Let me know when the shock towers are ready!!!

Christian,

I'm about to pick up a set of your DCJ axles for my TC6 and I plan on getting the V2 version (RSD071) with clips instead of set screws. I assume it would require the same 5x10x3 bearings as the original version (RSD021)? I just want to make sure I order everything I need. And is a new crush sleeve required to go between the bearings?

Once I install these, I should be able to use standard hexes/drive pins, correct?

Thanks!
Tommy

Tommy, yes, you would need 4x 5x10x3mm bearings and a new crush tube. What I usually do is I take a couple of old 5x10x4mm bearings and cut them to get only the inner race. This works as a perfect crush tube.

Does anyone know if the larger if the two retaining clips is the same size as the spec-r retaining clip? I'm having some "issues"...

Thanks,
Ethan
