Ill get a chance to run them in Mod on carpet this week. Thanks for the cool stuff you make CT.

I ran the shocks with the RSD bladders in Mod on carpet in practice last night. I am still learning mod (ism't everyone?) and as expected parked and/or launched it a couple times. At the end of the night the shocks were still silky smooth and no air. I'm sold now. Especially since I can get 3+ packs of RSD bladders for the cost of 1 Xray pack.

My chassis arrived! Being at work and not having my car with me, I do have 1 question. What are the new battery retainers screwed down into? The oem plastic or am I missing something? All the pictures you posted show them with button head screws from top into something that must be secured to chassis from underside. Thanks! Chassis looks awesome in person!

Tim, the chassis comes with 2 separate bags with sealed items.

In one bag, you have hardware and the other has the bell cranks and CF pieces.

At the bottom of the hardware bag, you have the Battery Holder hardware. Install the 4 aluminum stand offs with the 4 countersink screws. Then locate your CF retainers. Grab the 4 button heads and the 4 washers and install the sliding battery holders. Adjust to fit your individual battery.

BTW, I am glad you got it quickly!

There is a good starting set-up a couple of pages back.

Ok, so I sent only 6 chassis yesterday, and I will stop sending them out due to the following issue.

When I installed the chassis in my car and noticed the forward motor mount brace hole is off by 0.4mm. We are working on having a replacement brace done inside of 2 weeks, they should arrive with the servo holders.

However I managed to install it without tweaking the chassis by loosening the screw that is attached to the aluminum piece, threading the part from the bottom of the chassis and then tightening down the screw on the mount. Use some loctite and don't over tighten.

For what it's worth, we tested without the front motor mount screw for a while and had no issues running without it. We ran mod with it as well. It's not ideal, but it will do in the meantime if you can't wait to run your car.

I have tested the car with the new chassis and I did not notice any issues.

Thanks for your understanding guys.

Honestly, many might not notice the slight misalignment on the chassis, but we want to ensure everyone is getting the best product possible. We individually inspect each item and make sure that it is up to spec. If it is not, I would rather wait 10-20 days to make stuff just perfect.

The majority of the chassis that went out are for people participating at the Reedy race. We want them to have a chance to showcase the car because we know this conversion is very good.

I think it is great you are looking out for the customers and the quality!!

Knowing me I will probably try to make it work and see what happens.

thanks for the update Cristian. I know Reflex Racing means quality, that's why I like you parts. Looking forward to running it when it's ready.

Default RSD Race

I have been toying around with the idea of holding an RSD race soon. We are in the planning stages of a state series race, in which this race could be one of the dates.

It seems like there are very few "good" asphalt races that people are willing to travel to every year. Mostly I can think of the Reedy Race and that's about it.

My question is, what would it take for some of you guys to come down and race in H-Town with us? What kind of format would you like to see? How about prizes? Classes?

I am just in the brainstorming stages, but it would definitely be bad ass to have some people come down to race with us. Houston is a great place to host a race. We have 2 large airports that are close, great hotels for lower than average prices, more restaurants per capita than any other city in the country, plus great southern hospitality. Our track is located in Bellaire, TX, one of the nicest subdivisions in the USA. It also happens to be just 10 minutes away from the Galleria, which is one of the nicest and most upscale malls in the country, in case you need to bring a wife/gf...

Give me some suggestions/ideas and I will make it happen. In result we'll have an EPIC Race.

You had me at Lenny's.... J/k.

Any help you need from fellow state racers to make this happen just speak up. I am in full support of these ideas.

Thanks for your effort to bring back great electric onroad to Texas.

Ps... This is an incredible race track and super nice bunch of racers.

Joe, did you get my email? Let me know what you think, you are our go-to-guy in Austin. Take a peek in the Texas forums for the preliminary info.

If we work together, we can make on-road relevant in Texas again! I know we have a good group that if we combine forces, we can make a heck of a series!
