Thanks for verifying the part numbers for me, guys. Got the chassis ordered, along with all the other crap to optimize the car for carpet. Now, if only I could drive... :-)

Can you give a break down on everything you ordered? I'm trying to set up a carpet car order. -JB

SRC79182 is the dogbones and SRC79189 is the steel blades.

i wouldn't worry too much about the side to side play on the layshaft as it pretty much self centers. I probably have like 1mm or so. I haven't checked it recently though.

hey Jeff... i think i saw a pic of your car a while back, and noticed that you had the upper tensioner mounted farther back.... does that free the drivetrain up more? just curious....

I don't even use a belt tensioner..... so it probably wasn't mine. But, yeah that would free it up. A brand new belt should not need a tensioner. You can put the layshaft all the way up or a tick lower and you should be fine.

makes sense... i have been using the same belts since i got it back in Feb., running stock and 19t every weekend. i have the upper tensioner all the way up, and the lower almost all the way up as well. i probably ought to get some extra belts, just in case... maybe next order.

Thanks Jeff. What about the side-to-side play in the front and rear pulleys? -JB

JayBee,

I'm by no means an expert, but this is what I've done to my RDX (originally the US version with the one-way) to optimize it for carpet.

Silver Springs (forget the part number)
Front Diff
75% Hard Arms
COR79357: 3.4mm RDX Graphite Topdeck
SRC100: 3.9mm RDX Milled Graphite Chassis
COR79363A "RDX" Battery Strap
8 x COR79121 Low Hingepin Block

I've probably missed something, but those are what I've heard are the essentials for carpet.

Well, the diffs themselves shouldn't move. The pulleys will go back and forth a bit, say 1mm. They self center like the center pulley so i wouldn't worry.

Steel Bones won't be available for several weeks as we don't have them yet.

Well that's a pretty good start. Nothing more is really needed but I would buy the xtra heavy spring set.
Do you like sway bars? I like a car that turns flatter so i use the heavy ones on both the front and back.
I usually switch between 4 and 6 degree castor blocks as well. But the car should be great as you have it now, maybe just stiffen up the suspension a little (use the RDX Snowbirds,Cleveland and Carpet Nat's setups from the Corally website...those are perfect starting blocks). Heck, you might not want to adjust your car from the posted set-ups.

The one thing some are doing for carpet is lowering the front shock tower to help slam the front body down a little more. This will also alter the roll center.

Yeah, you can call CorallyUSA directly if you want and place an order. Just remember we only have the aluminum bones available right now.
