Car isn't any more brittle than any other car in my opinion. The RDX seemed to do pretty good at the Reedy Race with 6 cars in the 19T A-main. It is certainly turning heads on Carpet and Asphalt everywhere it goes.

Does the car tweak easy? And does it come with aluminum steering knuckles?

Also, do bodies really matter that much for the cars performance?

The car comes with aluminum C hubs but the steering knuckle is composite. And its quite durable. As far as working on asphalt Jeff Brown said put it right. The car is working and winning everywhere.

As far as bodies yes it does matter what you choose as each model type has different charasteristics (spell?) handling wise. To give you a Idea A mazda six is great for asphalt and the parma alpha is a great carpet body.

Sushi -
camber links bottom row 3rd hole going inward
arm mounts both are on the lower one with the front turned up for kickup

I had the shock mounted on the 2nd hole but couldn't dive into the turns like I wanted.

not sure about the hardest but you sold it to me LOL Oh I did tell you I bought the car back in December and you pulled "standard" arms...

Are the 1.3 pistons larger or smaller than the standard ones? I think I'll try the 40/60 oil and see what happens

I always screw the body post nut the other way (flat surface on top) and it just clears the mounts.

Honestly, I would try moving the front camber links to the upper hole. I think your setup is so soft to the point where it is dumping over and just not working properly. Sounds like you are just tryign to develop more steering. Where in the corner do you need the steering? Off power or on power?

i kinda had a q.....
what are most running for oil/spring/swaybar for carpet, foam tires? i dont get to run very much carpet, and i am planning on going to the Vegas race. gonna make a few attemps to get some more rugtime practice, but its at least a 3+ hour drive...

a couple weeks ago, i ran 42lb front, 26 rear, with 45/35 oil, but im guessing the oil is too light? had the 1.9 bar on front, none rear.

car kind of seemed to dive in a little hard on entry, and push on throttle a little...

Jeff, and all;
I have been looking at the Reedy race setup posted at Corally.com. Is 20# front and 12# rear springs correct? I have never tried this big of a delta.

Standard and Narrow Hexes
Regarding our hexes. We have heard of some people breaking the hexes under impact and the only thing we can assume is that the hexes are cranked down on. Our hexes are not like other manufacturers hexes. They are not designed to clamp together completely, there should be about a 1mm opening where the screw clamps.

Simply slide the hex on and snug the screw. Check to make sure it isn't coming off and then tighten perhaps another 1/4 turn at the very most. Hopefully this might fix some of the problems we have heard about.

Carpet Setups
Chris Tosolini's setup is available on the corallyusa.com website from the ROAR Nationals. Recently added was Jeff Dayger's setup from the ROAR Nationals as well where he used a box stock UK Edition kit.

If the car is diving too much then run longer camber links to keep the car more flat.

Reedy Race Setup
Jim,

I am not sure which setup sheet you are looking at, but any information posted on www.corallyusa.com is straight from team drivers. Anything posted on www.corally.com is not posted by us.

Well, My original ones I admit that I tigthened them too much. My second sets, I took Korey's advice and just barely snug, when I say barely, I mean BARELY. And that has not solved the issue, they still break on impacts. Even Korey told me he broke his. I think there should be a revised design on those, there is just not enough "meat" on the hex. These are cheap either... $19 retail for a pair. I've gone thru 4 pairs. I'm almost to the point to find other manufacturers' hex to use instead, or just go with the regular hex instead of the narrow ones.
