Im assuming you are after a rubber setup.

I had two RDX's (I now run Tamiya's)

Things to look for are the 2mm chassis is really bad for tweaking after a prang. Loosen all the screws and let it rest for a couple of days.
A bad tweak will cause spinning out.
Your traction roll is from too much front grip, try Much More 32's all round
AreCee has the spring rates spot on (good advice)
Start with 3 hole pistons and 40wt all round.
Ride height 5.5 front 5mm rear , this will help the rear end hold.
Also run the 2deg rear toe blocks with 2deg inbourd toe.
Neutral front (0 toe)
5mm rear droop 4mm front.

You must have new tyre,s when tuning a setup.

Cheers Mark

I'm using one of the asphalt setups from the corally website. seems to work great for me.

give it a shot and see how you like it.

and as for 'buy an xray'? cmon how's that supposed to help out. dude already dropped enough cash into his car.. he doesn't need to go out and spend another 500 to fix what could be a very simple problem. ugh.. some people...

Default RDX Handling...or lack there of....

Well, weve tried everything ....except....putting it in the wall...
I just had a thought...Ive been running associated springs, just changed to the corally springs and will try again. The associated springs are toooo loooong.... Adjusting them does not seem to work because you can't get any adjustment. Other item, car was NOT balanced correctly, just balanced it. With these changes maybe we can get it to at least push a little. Had the track owner work on it for two days, changed from the lightest "associated" springs to the heaviest and it made NO difference at all.... Still turns left on rails and traction rolls to the right. Thanks for all you guy's help...I truly am a teck rookie

Default RDX

I just started running this car in VTA and used this set up.

Go on the Corally Australia site and get the Andy Cooke LittleHampton setup

i ended up with 19lb front springs( associated blue) and 40 wt oil, and (losi yellow) 9.6lb rear springs with 25 wt oil. I bought my car used and it has 4 deg front C-hubs on it. I also have a front one way..this car is really good.

i have found the front a-arms to be fragile on mine , useing the foam front bumper and alum steering blks.
