I was finally able to see this car in person at the iHobbyexpo last weekend and I was completely impressed. This car is a work of art!!! Corally did an amazing job on this kit- good job, guys!

If you are considering a new sedan I would definitly look close at the RDX. I was more impressed with this kit than I was with any other sedan at the show (TC4, JRXS, XRAY, etc...)

I talked to Rob and indeed the kits are waiting for the light-weight diffs to arrive. Can hardly wait to put one on the track...

Hey Ben, did you happen to snap any pics while you were there? Did you run into Olivarez?

Hey Greg, no I didn't take any photos. What was I thinking!?! I should have snapped a few... They do have some good ones on their site though.

Man, this car is really nice. I'm seriously thinking about picking one up this winter.

I didn't see Dan. We didn't get there until about 1p.m. on Saturday. I think he may have left by then.

Later,
Ben

I know the set ups wil be a while to follow for the RDX, but will most of my set ups transfer over from my mid motor Assassin or is the geometry that much different? I'd ike to have a decent starting point.

i know this has probably been asked before but i dont want to have to sift thru this entire thread .... with the RDX come equiped with a one way and sway bars already as part of the kit or will those have to be purchased separately? also, are the front and rear arms swappable?

Rob or Chris,

After looking at the car more closely I have a few questions/observations:

1) Is there any intenetion to provide graphite fornt rear c-hubs or knuckles? In my experience, the aluminum/duraluminum pieces are great, but they are capable of being damaged or tweaked. Graphite just breaks rather that tweaking.

2) What is the relevant level of difficulty/ir process of getting diffs out the car?

3) Any aftermarket/optional parts planned for this kit?

The more I see the car the more I'm impressed with it's build quality. The fact that you countersunk all the screws goes to show that you can build this kit without having to worry about tweak, which is a problem for deck cars... Love those torx screws too!

One way upfront and (LW) diff at the rear.
Corally is awaiting parts for the LW diff.

Planning is to include a set of hard swaybars (front and rear) into the kit.

All 4 arms are identical.

Greg,

I know I'm not Rob nor Chris, but.......

1 Due to its design there will be way too much stress on the C hubs when manufactured from Graphite.
When testing for the Assassin the team decided Coral was the only proper way to go.
Under regular racing condition (with an occasional bang) the current C-hubs should be fine.

2 You have to remove one side of the bulkhead by removing a few screws (I'ld suggest the righthand side). slide belt of the Pulley and the diff slides out quite easy.

3 Not at this time.
First getting the production and shipping started properly.
Then maybe who knows....

THANK you Rob for being the first European/Asian high end car kit to remember we race on foam tires in the USA too!! Even have a part number for the Carpet kit :00167

I cant remeber how many one-ways I have sold the last few years and how long i waited for a front diff to be released....

Default Thanks Rob

Hey, I was wondering them since I am racing carpet, how quickly I'll be able to get my hands on another couple of diffs since a one-way is sub-optimal for foam/carpet setups?

If there is a kit for carpet, as Ray indicated, what's the difference? Diff instead of a one-way?

Questions, questions, and more questions....
