24mm height Lipo (LRP 5300) fits easily, you can even passe 12awg wire between the upper deck and battery........

The slots for 6-cell are there.......

THe car has a front belt tensioner and you can move the middle shaft forward and backwards...........Both belts are not tight at all and the car is the smoothest belt driven I've seen, very free and you don't strip belts or pulleys easily.......

Would like to see more detailed pictures of people’s cars who have it, like what B4James has done and to know if the bearing holders for the old car will work. Also can someone comment on the performance of the new car over the old one? Thanks for the information.

The new car has a lot of grip due to the flexible nature of the new plastic parts over the aluminum. You will probably have to do a few little tricks to take out some steering nd free up the car a little. Overall the car is really fast from watching it nd talking to simon at the reedy race and robbie at the regionals race here in florida.

Has anybody noticed that the rear carbonfibre bearing holder isnt flush on the bulkheads when tightening it up? it stays at an angle do I have to place washers underneath it?
Mine dit to at first. Can't see that this is anything but an aesthetic issue. Raced my car 5-6 packs an tightened it. It is now level.


The car works great. Raced it on a ultra low grip track and basically the standard setup. It is my first car inn the RDX series so i cant compare, other than that it seems to handle alot better then the RDX Phi of another lokal racer.

Is the carbon fiber chassis itself any different than the last RDX PHI?

Here you go. It´s a bit modified with shocks behind shock tower and short wheelbase. I´m starting to get a ok base setup.
