I thought this would help UK people. To fit the one way you need holders and bearings. I also note that the one way comes supplied with plastic gear, but the spool does not. - thanks Andy

What makes of springs are everybody using. I use Losi, with losi cups. On the front I reduce the height of the cup AND link on the bottom of the shock shaft. I have bought one set of Black and silver springs, but really you need to buy a second set, if you want to run same springs front and rear, unless this is not appropriate for the RDX. Also I am intrested to hear what people run in the front ,Diff/Spool/One way. I have used the spool for shiny wood floor and outside tarmac and I thought it worked really well. Thanks Andy

I bought the spring kit for the car. There is like 8 different spring rates. As far as the oneway/spool/diff, it all depends on the track. I've been using an oneway since I can get away with it on most of the track I race on. My local track's configuration was changed this week and I tried the oneway and it wouldn't work. I put a spool and I was able to drive a decent line.

I ran with a spool last night for the first time with car and like the last minute of racing my front belt would come off. I raised the spur and place the belt tension like half way. We have a couple on 180s and I think that is where the belt is coming off. Do you want the front belt tight or looser than the rear?

Where do you have your layshaft positioned? I run it all the way up and have NEVER used a belt tensioner, and never flipped a belt. Same belts since November last year.

A brand new belt should not require a tensioner. I think people might feel the tensioner is needed as it is mentioned in the instructions. Raising the layshaft up will tighten the front belt.

The rear belt is fine as my 7 turns dont' seem to lack anything. I have only run a spool on the asphalt also.

The layshaft if halfway with the tensioner half also. I'll move the lay shaft all the way up. It was just weird that it just started coming off at the same spot after I put the spool in.

TJ told me the say thing about the belt and mine was probably just getting broken into.

I'll try give that a try.

Thanks again

Default Duraluminum Arms

Has anyone used the Duraluminum arms yet? Any responses to their performance?

I haven't, to me aluminum/duraluminum arms have always been just a eye candy thing to add weight. No real benefit from them really. They are alot stiffer, but they can also bend. It wouldn't be so fun to have a bent arm messing with suspension geometry.

No, I would think it might throw the weight balance off. you'd have to add a bit more weight on that side of the car to balance it out.
