Corwin Bro.. the car is
the newest .... as any fine tweaks come into production the kits get fresh stuff.
Corally is smart ...!! instead of releasing a new kit every year or so... (you seemes to be programed to expect that I see.. but ..later on this) the cars' platform is the genesis of all these seasons running TC. the platform "EVOLVES" instead of obcelesing.. get it?
The RDX is by far the most current car in terms of state-of-the-art... I think the ragged egde days of experimentation at your expense. have gone...and now its minute tweaks..you would be wise to invest your racing dollar in a RDX. National Champ 2 pete!
Take F1 for example.. why is the motor in the middle of the car..cuz that where it works best...
the RDX is
- Design experesslly to be underweight so you can bais the weights any way you desire without going extremely overweight.
- Lowest CG of any TC
- Concentrated mass at center and along centerline for instant transition and rotation enabling extreme ability to carry corner speed
- Highest efficiency rear body posts mounted to the rear bulkhead to transfer downforce directly to the chassis..instead of through the shocktower (which cause lag/flex, loss od DF through shock action to a-arm stressing and preloading suspension) like old skool designs.
- Center pulley/spur bearing monted on fixed shaft which acts as another rear bulkhead brace thus reducing flex.. Old designs have shaft floating on bearings mounted inthe bulkhead..(the bulkhead flexs = binds bearing)
- Huge diff pullies allow max contact of belt to transfer power to axles with next to no lag.
You would be at least smoother, quicker and more confident in your driving skill once you rip with an RDX.. I know me and a pile of my local racers are now running the car.
