i just get most of mine from Corally... or you can order from Speedtech in Cali.

on a setup note... those of you who widen or narrow the track width, either with the spacers or hexes... does the narrowing free that end up more, or give more grip? just curious on your guys' results...

I widened the front of my car to 190 by putting another .8mm spacer on the front suspension blocks. It gave me more steering overall, so I'm assuming if you narrow it up it will just reduce traction.

As soon as I got my Corally pit towel, I took .3 seconds off my best lap, three times in the same race. Way to go Corally, you guys are like frickin' Midas over there. I'm well on my way to being the bench racing king!

thanks Korey... thats kind of what i had thought, but i made other changes at the same time, so waasnt sure what did what!

where we race indoors locally, they use a surface called SkidNot, kinda like asphalt... i have the entry steering where i want it, but couldnt keep the rear planted in 19T on exit. ill go back to the wider hexes, and change the roll center again...

What parts would people say are a good addition to a RDX indoor and outdoor? Are any bits advisable to buy as tuning options straight off?

The ultra low blocks (79121) are working in the front for indoor and outdoor, so at least 4 of those (sold individually). The 1.3 shock pistons also seem to be the choice for both conditions as well. Other than springs for asphalt or carpet, those are the things that you should buy first. For carpet racing you will want 8 of the low blocks for the whole car front and rear.

Then for outdoor you can use the spool and one way depending on the size and design of the track, but those will not be good for indoor racing.

But to sum it up, the low blocks and pistons are the only additions for EITHER scenario. Also pick up some toe shims, to use to change the rear toe if you want, and also to shim out the front on carpet, the front is narrower than the rear out of the box.

Mr. Warner.

if your going to use foam outdoors.. don;t use the foam types i put on the sheet its for carpet use 1/0th scale gass foams 26mm wide friont and rear.

42 fronts 35 rears medium bite

45-50 fronts and 40 rears high bite

37 fronts 30 rears low bite

use tire sauce fully on rears and use only 1.2 of fronts.. before running traction companud on fronts try it on the track with rears sauced only first. then add to front as you may need more steering.
