well, the surprise is that currently i am using some blue wheel nuts from my tamiya cars on mine right now... fits perfectly.

if i remember right, the AE nuts are 8/32, right outta the manual...

the metric cars use a 4mm thread. not to say that it wont thread on, just not the right pitch...

Hexes don't thread on! They just slide on then you tighten them down with the screws that came with them.

Or ar you now talking about the wheel nuts?

i was talking about the dimensions in general of the wheel axles manufacted by MIP for Coally... the threads and bearing sizes are metric, so i would assume the all dimensions related to them would be also... the SAE ones might go on, but the tolerances and exact sizing are bound to be off...

If you use Tamiya wheel nuts, then you 1: Didn't notice the threads we're wrong, and forced them on or 2: Have different axles from me, who is a team driver with two RDX's, one early version and one of the latest.

So something does not make sense here, and I know I'm right about RDX's I've seen...

The Assassin and the RDX axles are METRIC!

Then my cars must be whack... Cos Losi and AE nuts is the only fit...

This is funny. I don't have any Tamiya nuts or tools here, would be funny to check. At least, I don't think I'm wrong if I say that Losi and AE nuts are bigger, do I?

Checked my nuts (stop sniggering), no force needed to screw on, no damaged threads on nut (alum - softer), or axle, sorry Martin must be your nuts that are wrong.

Cheers

If they were wrong I wouldn't get them on would I

I think I need a long nights sleep, and then go measure.. Middle of the night here

But seriously, last time I ran a Losi or a AE, the Tamiya/lotsofothhersblabla were not compatible... But still, on my car, nuts from a Losibag fits right on, with no force. Has Losi changed their sizes?

I've never measured the hexes from Corally, AE, Xray or anyone.

So something does not make sense here, and I know I'm right about RDX's I've seen...
dont forget about Yokomo, Alex, RCLabs, etc... all japan made, tho.

most all the cars manufactured in Europe, Asia, etc. have metric threads... due to they all pretty much use the Metric system, i think. only the cars made here in good ol' US of A have Standard, I.E. Losi, AE...

could be wrong tho, but my metric wheel nuts dont show any signs of crossthreading...

anyhoo... the stock hexes are 5mm thick, and the narrow ones are more like 4mm.

Hi guys!

i have raced my car for the first time this past week-end and WOW!! i really like the RDX!! during the last years i have run another car...and i was never able to have the car handle like i want (smooth with a lot of steering)...during this last years i have a lot of problem when i was running in 19T and mod...i was thinking that i was not able to run in this class anymore!! but after my first pack in pratice my car was really good!! after some small change i was able to have the car close to like i want!! during the day i set the TQ and win the A-main in 19T....my car was pratically box stock (RDX UK) except for the spring...next time i will try the ultra low block..

thanks to Corally for this really good car!!
