Brian- the 3700 chassis is fine. My batteries dont move around much at all.

I just got back from the track today racing 19T rubber on carpet. Car was awesome and qualified 2 seconds behind Andrew Cartwright. In the main we were back and forth, but Andrew got the best of me and he ended up abotu a second in front of me. Awesome night and the car keeps getting better.

Looks like I'll have to put in an order soon...
I read somewhere that the old type chassis can still take the new 3700 cells by just reducing the size of the battery post and adding washers for it to sit higher than normal. Can someone confirm this.

I have a friend who has the carpet spec. (with the new chasis)and he doesn't have any problems with the larger batt. slots. You could place some of the Xray batt strip stuff on the bottom of the RDX batt. strap. This will hold the cells in place with causing too much pressure. Let us know what you do. Ray

Yes, you can dremel the posts and shim the posts up 3mm and it will fit 3700's.

Default A few more questions....

does the RXD have bladder style shocks? Can you get a titanium screw set and hinge pins for it. I'm a Ti guy!

Yes, the shocks are bladder style. Corally doesn't offer a Ti set that I am aware of. Speedtech RC may sell them or at least be willing to put one together for you.

I bought Tamiya Ti screws for mine from the Walawala ebay store. It cost me somehting like $60.00 for a complete set (plus a lot of extras) with shipping.

Speedtech does have a Ti screw kit for the car. Although I don't really know the purpose of Ti screws, car is already light as it is.

I won't mine getting Ti screws aswell as the lighter I can get the car the more available weight I can have in balancing the chassis without going well over the minimum legal weight.

What is the difference in grams between the original screws and a set of titanium?

Not enough to justify spending $50 on a weaker set of screws!

Here's what you gonna lose..

4 - 5 grams BFD! and the hexes strip out and shear strength is no advantage.

plus you'll lose in the wallet too, I like the torx head they don't strip out as easily as hexes especially if you use locktite
