Car looks good...except for that "birds nest" of carpet fuzz around the shock.
The diffs are not centered. They are offset just a little.

I was wondering the same thing. Supposedly neither one is centered, they just look that way. If you look at this picture, you can see that the outdrives extend well beyond the bulkhead, and are supported by some unknown method on the outside of the bulkheads. If they're not centered, that means we can reused diffs, spools, etc. With the quick access to the diffs now, I can have a few spares built up that are easy to switch in and out.

The adjustable internal ratio is slick, too. Some of the gears we run in brushless are obscene.

Even more narrow than the Losi JRXS-R? Doubt it.

Thanks for those pics _RDX_.

Looks like the new chassis is the narrowest. Not sure why when so many are switching over to brushless.

As mentioned in the description above, it refers to the "Golden Ratio" (math term).

I'm not going to try to explain it here, but you can read about it at:

"The New RDX Phi will be available from early 2007 in Euro Spec ‘5-Cell’ as well as US Spec ‘6-Cell’ editions."

I really hope that you can get the euro spec with 6 cells. in other way its too bad for those who drive 27t and 19t with rubber tires...
maybee somebody out there can answer this?

Nope! Math wasn't my major in college (it was one of my minors, though), and I didn't stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

And if anyone else wants a copy of my Excel "RDX Rollout" worksheet, just send me a PM with your email address.

Hopefully the US spec doesn't use any kind of adjustable flex, and just comes with a nice, thick chassis like the current carpet spec car.

I don't know about the narrowest chassis, but it's gotta have the shortest topdeck I've ever seen.

The Schumacher guys in their thread would probably be able to give you better info on any new car development.

The top deck, however, can't be more than 5 inches long. It's pretty darn short.
