paul,

can you find out what toso or the corally guys do to get the rims to fit on the rdx? mine hits on the rear arm... actually just the spokes hit.

I can dremel them down, but didn't know if I was missing something.

If I space it out so it doesn't hit then I'm over the roar legal max width???

thanks

Michael

Not sure what exactly where/how it's hitting on your car, so I'll just post what I have on the back end of my RDX:

1 degree of toe in (no additional spacers to space out arms), new 35% arms, short wheelbase, shock mounted in outermost hole on arm, new "vertical ballstud" rear uprights, wide hexes.

like I said the spokes of the wheel hit on the arm.
shocks aren't hitting just the arm.

I have the standard rear RDX hubs not the vertical hubs.
I use the narrow hexes and I use 2 deg toe in, no other spacers to space it out.
If I use the wide hexes in the rear I'm past the 190 rule...

its not much but it is too wide to fit in the box...

yeah and at 2 deg you are over... running magenta front and rear you need more toe... like I said its not much, but still over. I think I can shim out the difference with the narrow hexes and stay under...

Michael, when i ran these with my RDX - i shaved just a bit off my arm - just a hair on the arm and it worked fine....it took me a while to figure out what they heck that noise was.....and it was just on my right rear tire - i tried switching wheels, but it did the same thing, so it sounds like my arm was a hair big compared to the others.....

Default Parma products most used at the IIC

I would like to congratulate and thank everyone who used Parma tires and bodies. In the TC foam tires classes Parma tires and bodies were the most used products in the A mains.

In the stock foam A main Parma Pro-53 tires took the win and top 6 qualifying spots. 8 out of 10 in the main ran the Pro-53's as well as all of them running Parma bodies.

In the 19t foam A main Parma Pro-53 tires were second and third and took 7 out of 10 spots. All the main racers also used Parma bodies.

Parma tires also took the top 2 spots in Mod foam qualifying as well as 1,2,4th place in the A main. Parma Pro-53 tires won the mod foam class and 6 out of the 10 racers used Parma bodies.

Congrats to Brad Johnson, Teemu Leino, and Chris Tosolini for their TQ's and/or wins!!

Paul

Magenta is the most popular choice for the front and rear 16501. Some guys like Indigo for the front 16512.
