17lbs=5.75 turns
19lbs=5.5 turns
22lbs=5.25 turns
24 lbs=5 turns

The way I do it is:
Hold the spring so that the starting coil on the top is on the side closest to you.

Don't actually count it, but count the coil just below it as one.

Then count each coil there after, the "left over" on the last coil will be the .XX.

Hope this helps.

Thanks guys, that does help a lot. I do have the box with the numbers written on the front. The springs just weren't in there. Also, when I counted the coils, which is what I guessed, they all seemed the same =). Maybe I need glasses.

Thanks again.

I'm curious about this information too. I currently run 3800 orion and IPs because they fit and I run pretty well with the rest of the field. If I use the tray and a larger battery like the 4800 or 5000 will I see much improvement or just run time?

Thanks

I'm using the LIPO tray right now. I've also grinded the bulkheads and top-deck screw retainer and crammed the 3800 in the regular battery slot.
Trust me, stick with the tray. Its much easier to add weight and balance the car. If there is "wiggle" room when you put the battery strap on, use a piece of tire insert and you'll be sound as a pound.

With a larger capacity lipo, you will defintely notice the extra voltage in the later half of a run. After a rim, I would have 2/10ths of a volt more with the SMC 5000 than my Orion 3600/3800 packs. That extra voltage translates to faster laps.

Totally agree that the car is better balanced side-to-side with the lipo/lipo tray offsetting the weight of the BL motor too.

Will the AE or XRay wheel hexes work on the RDX?

Not sure, never tried them. Corally makes narrow and wide hexes for the PHI and you should be good to go with those. I've used Tamiya ones in the past on my RDX though..............

i like the way the car feels with the lipo tray, balance is good and transition left to right feels very stable and no lifting, i've used it now for about 4 months and it's much easier to use the tray then strapping a smaller 4000 or 3600 lipo to the chassis

I have the Corally hexes but all my narrow ones are broken now. Just wanting to know if there's an alternative.

Tamiya 4mm, 5mm etc fit. Just need to add a couple of shims on the axle for slop.
