The solution with the servo mount is well thought as for some other brands you have this stump on the left side that drags on the floor in right corners. Some guys are now cutting this stump and mounting the servo with double side tape and use only the right servo mount for safety. It should also give a little more flex to the chassis. What do you think of this?

In the top plate there is big potential. If you compare it with Tamiya, Yokomo, Xray ... its just too stiff for medium bite asphalt tracks. Cutting and flipping does a little more flex but I think this could be done better.

By the way ReflexRacing prevent that I would dumped the TC6.1 and go to another brand for me the thing is in detail.

PS: Cristian I have a private question for you in PM. Thanks

Gebereit, we will eventually have a top deck for the RSD6. At the moment i am testing some different variations. I really think the flex has a lot to do with personal preference past a certain point. The ultra flexy cars, which seem to be the hot item now probably have an advantage mostly at races like ETS events, where grip is limited on spec tires. Whenever there is an open tire rule, this disadvantage sort of disappears. At least from my observation.

I also noticed that the cutout under the rear diff is larger on the loaded chassis and the other chassis has the cutouts separate.

You have a point with spec tires. But everywhere I run (ETS, nationals, club races) we use spec tires RIDE 32 so it would suit me

Again, different chassis. In the production versions, the cut outs are even larger We tested different cuts in order to see what we liked the most and gave us the broadest "usable" flex tuning range.

My goal in designing the chassis was that I could make the car stiffer than a TC6 for super high bite American Carpet Tracks and super flexy for bumpy, low grip Euro-Style Carpet Tracks. If the car can be made to work in both situations, then it should work everywhere in between.

When we introduce different top decks, and perhaps lower decks, then the tuning will be able to be taken even further.

The pistons are all the same.

If you are using the TC6 blocks, you need to get 5x10x3mm bearings. If you are using 6.1 blocks, then nothing different is needed.

the reason I ask about the pistons, is the 3 holes seem to be smaller on the top than bottom, or vise versa...or does it matter..cool...

Ive already went ahead an ordered the bearings for the TC6
