Matt - I am using the Corally bearing holders front and rear. I have installed two bearings on each side. This way I am able to shim the inner bearing closer to the gear diff to remove slop and adjust the gear diff from side to side. I had to remove a small portion of the shock tower to allow the gear diff to rotate freely. I also had to open the chassis a slight bit for the same reason. Make sure you watch for clearances of the gear diff. Hope this helps.

Most people use the steel blade in the front only.

Default rdx phi straight arm and narrow chassis set up help

hi all, i'm looking for a base set up and build tips for the rdx phi with the new chassis and arms for running outside on tarmac, as the instructions show the model with the old type of arms.

This car is the newest type on the market in the uk which are being sold by modeltech racing.

regards matt

Well thanks to Mike Smith at Modeltech ( UK corally impoter ) for doing the finishing touches the gear diff install on my car is finished.

Used:
Spec-r Tamiya TA05 gear diff 37t
Tamiya one way pulley 37t
Corally 510mm front belt
Corally 186mm rear belt
std 21t layshaft pulleys
Corally alloy rear diff bearing holders

You need to shave some material off the bearing holders and the high spots on the gear diff case, dont over do it i.e. little at a time and recheck fit. Front one way pulley needs center hole making slightly bigger and drilling new screw mounting holes.

Video is first test run with gear diff after not driving the car for the last five weeks so a little rusty. I run 17.5 non boosted at my local club.

+ YouTube Video

Im guessing thats a tamiya gear diff for the 417 , no idea about the spur gear mount though.

Why the huge hole in the spur gear ?

it was all from Tamiya i think , the hole is for the inner screw on the motor saves removing the top deck to move the motor
