I'm not exactly a n00b, I've built many different diffs in many different cars, and have never needed to pay so much attention to the diffs as these. I've checked all the bearings, and they seem fine.

i built my diffs like any other cars diff and they are perfect. No re-lubing or cleaning and they are perfectly smooth and spin like a 1/12 diff and are locked up.

I found if you clean the diff rings and make sure there is plenty of diff lube in the rings and balls and black grease in the thrust bearing is the key for me. Tighten the assembly till you get a small amout of diff action and "work" in the diff by pushing the rings into the balls, then tighten it a 1/8 turn and keep doing that till the pulley can't spin. Hope this helps

What is the cheapest price I can expect to pay for an RDX in the US?

Also can anyone recommend a Hobby store in the Manhattan area that may stock them please?

(I'm from the UK but my brothers is going to NY in a couple of weeks)

i run my pulley right in the middle of the slot. keep an eye on the rear belt you dont want that to tight. i put the ceramic balls from corally in my diff and i havent rebuilt it in months. Its due tho. When the diffs starts to get gritty most of the time its the thrust bearing going bad.

Default New Products

Jeff Brown- I was looking through the 2005 product update brochure. Is that stuff available now, and if not, when do you guys expect it. RP tires, Hauler bag, motor cases, etc..

Yeah, I'd have to say that hauler, the little assortment boxes, and battery/motor cases look real trick.

Badboy,

I'm not using a rear bar...never have, and probably won't for foam tire.

drmellking,

Raising the layshaft will make the rear belt looser.

The car was really, really fast last night, best laptimes, TQ and win, and never faded off.

My layshaft is all the way up and has never moved. Plus I don't have a belt tensioner. I know....... i must be odd.
