Default Wheelbase setup

I was checking the different setups and everyone was using the short wheelbase for an asphault setup. On the PHI the rear has two sets of holes for coupler clamps. I tried the placing the clamps on the first hole but that made the cvd joints were too much at an angle. So I tried the last set of holes and the cvds were inline with the diff. So for the short wheelbase are there two shims up front for the front arms and two shims on the rear for the rear arms?

Also, are the kit shock pistons the same size as the tamiya 3 hole?

Yup, you're correct about the shim position for the short wheel base. To run the clamps in the shorter holes you'd need the optional pulleys and belts.

The kit comes with the 1.3 holes... I'm not sure how that stacks up to the tamiya 3hole, I'd guess they'd be similar since the tamiya holes are smaller, but there are more of them..

Not sure if this is absolutely correct but the way I've heard the pistons compared is:

Corally 2 holes x 1.3mm = 2.6
Tamiya 3 holes x 0.8mm = 2.4

Also Tamiya pistons inside the Corally shock, there's a little extra space between the piston and the shock body so you get more oil going around the piston than a Corally piston. So I would imagine that they are fairly similar in damping with the Tamiya possibly having slightly less pack. This is just what I've heard.

Applying the formula for area of a circle, the area of these holes would be:
1.3mm diameter hole is 1.327 square mm x 2 holes equals 2.654 square mm
0.8mm diameter hole is .503 square mm x 3 holes equals 1.509 square mm

BIG difference there! Think I got this right.

Maybe the stated larger gap around the outside of the Tamiya piston is the difference that makes the fluid flow more equal between the two pistons.

Sorry, I know that "fluid dynamics" also plays a part in how shock fluid goes through the various sized holes; but, I don't have a handle on that part of the issue.

Yeah the arms are good. I've had two big panics - a kid coming the wrong way around the track as i entered the sweeper on full throttle (19 turn). Only broke a steering block and I considered myself lucky.

Second was a big bounce over the kerb into the armco barrier - only popped a rear shock.

Cheers

I ran last weekend with Mike Nelson's Novak Race setup for the RDX, but with a spool... I ran the 1.3 pistons, but the car really needed the 1.1's.... the car drove awesome...

We were not using the short position on the couplers. We had the shims in the shortest position. We have not tried the super short wheelbase. It would be the 2 shims in the back of the pins to shim the arm forward, shorter.

Like brians11 mentioned, I would start with Mike Nelson's setup for the PHI.

Mike's car had the 2006 COMP SPEC chassis and CENTER POINT TOPDECK on the car, which makes the original RDX, the same as the PHI. It moves the batteries back and changes the steering.

Correct. It is a big change. It really effects the reaction and recovery of the car. Like for instance I had shocks with 30wt and 0.9mm pistons, but someone else had 35wt and 1.1mm pistons. I still have a stiffer dampening setup.
