The new top deck will not work with the V1 chassis. The V2 has a shorter distance between bulkheads which changes the driveshaft angle in order to get a slightly more forward swept dog bone angle in the front. This gives the car more on power steering and more punch for stock as it puts more downward pressure on the front tires under load.

Hey Cristian can you make an adjustable setup sheet for the RSD v1/v2? I'd love to see what setups other people are running.

Here is mine that put me in the A Main at the U.S. Indoor Champs. Cody W and I bounced ideas off each other at the race as he also ran the version 1 there. I don't remember exactly what he ran, but I know he ran thicker oil in the shocks.

I ran pretty close to EA's T4'14 IIC setup..... However I ran a bit less rear uptravel and less camber since we were using Sweeps. I think I would've liked a Madzaspeed 6 over the LTCR on that layout with the tires.

Fill shock body
install bladder
push piston all the way in
with a hex wrench gently press the bladder into the body
thread cap on

shaft will extend slightly during tightning
0 rebound tada

The v2 RX4 plate is awesome. The car was good no matter how hard I drove it. I also used the lowered layshaft mounts and SpecR center post/upper deck combo..... The back of the car seemed more stable than the v1 chassis without feeling too locked in.

Cody, are you still running the same setup as above mentioned? I was just wondering if I should leave my Champs setup on it and run it. I plan on swapping the chassis over to the V2 after the Hangover Dash in Cleveland. I don't want to swap before because I know the Champs setup works.

Lol a 2 second swing is most likely driver. But good to know that you had a good experience!

I strapped a 4.5 in it for the break-in

I was using up old Sweep32 tires and basically ended up close to Lemieux's mod IIC setup, which surprises me because I've never liked a setup that soft before. The layout yesterday was a little tight so I ran a spool in the front and the rear roll center a bit higher, but the super soft/lotsa uptravel setup worked great. Jonesy ran a damn close setup in both his mod car AND his stock car..... And his stock car was ballistic yesterday.

RSD V2 T4 chassis/top deck ran terrific in mod this past weekend at Horsham. Tons of steering and buttery smooth rotation in tight radius turns.

Current setup:

Christian, what is the difference between the DCJs for the TC6 (RSD071) and the Xray (RSD073). I had DCJs on my TC6 and have just got a T4, so I was hoping to just get new bones or axels to put them on the new car.

Edit: Seeing as though the part number for replacement axels are the same and the bones are different, I assume that I can order the Xray bones and use the rest of the TC6 DCJs.
