Space out your front to 3mm on each suspension mount to take away some of that increased bite in suspension change. It really helps my car out when I do that.

Hey Christian,

In your opinion, assuming the layout remains the same, what changes would you make from an asphalt setup to a carpet setup if any?

Anyone else can chime in as well.

Dennis, we are packing the chassis and preparing about 20 orders today. It is a bit intensive, but you are the 2nd one in line, so it should leave today.

mtbboy, for carpet I typically go wider front track, less rear toe, and up 50-100cst in oil. Also, I might add ackerman (decrease shims) to make the steering less aggressive. Typically carpet has more front grip than asphalt, so I try to mellow out the car.

Not yet. You are a bit down the list. We got done with more than expected and I am done with the first 25% today. You are in the last 25%. It should leave before the end of the week though.

We are almost sold out of the whole production though. Only 8 chassis kit left

Just wondering if any little alignment issues etc with the first production run have been fixed in this run?

Which alignment issues? The motor mount bracket? We have released a new motor mount bracket for the car and all orders, are being shipped with them, with the exception of the ones that went for the REEDY race, which will be shipped by the end of the week.

We have found the car to generate better grip by using only 2 screws on the motor mount. The forward-most screw and the "middle" screw that bolts to the front of the lay shaft mount. I personally have been considering cutting the motor mount right at this spot to test. It also prevents tweak in the chassis a bit better as the motor mount torque only is attached at 1 point. I will post some pics up in a bit.

Sorry yes the motor mount, great stuff will be ordering 2 kits soon.

I saw somebody ask if they could get the steering rack in black rather than blue.

Is that an option?

Default Motor Mount Installation on RSD6



When assembling the car, leave out the most rearward screw on the motor mount. The car will have less of a tendency to tweak and it will generate more consistent grip. This works with the TC6 as well.

Thomas, all the kits now have black bell cranks. Only the first 20 or so kits went out with blue bell cranks.

Another thing I've found that helps TREMENDOUSLY is flipping the top plate. It seems that the counter sunk screws on the top plate induce a very slight amount of tweak to the chassis. I'm currently running mine with blue aluminum counter sunk washers and counter sunk screws. I found that if you just use button heads the material is weak from being counter sunk on the opposite side and you don't get good/consistent clamping. Having zero tweak in the chassis is HUGE and can take a great set up and turn it into garbage. Just my 2 cents.
