Well, yesterday was my mainden voyage with the new RDX. Coming from a 12th scale car (and having not had driven a TC in over 2 years), it took a bit of adjusting, but after a couple of packs, and some very minor tweaks, the car was absolutely perfect to drive.

We run a very high traction CRC Ozite, where more than a few have experienced traction rolling, so I compensated in my build with an educated gamble on the shock oil at 70F/50R and it worked flawlessly with spec TakeOff cs27s. Combined with a 24/19 spring selection, the car was an absolute dream to drive. I couldn't have asked for a smoother car.

The front CVDs are way too flimsy for my sorry driving abilities, though. They will be the first parts replaced this week. I'm also not too sure I like the ultra stiff A-arms... too breakie.

I'd definitely grade this car an A, right out of the box. Driver gets a C, after qualifying 9th in the B-main out of about 28 cars in stock class, though I did come back to finish 3rd, with a chance to win it in the closing laps.

I got to run my RDX today for a practice pack before I went to work. And the car was dial and I don't even have the right foams on or a tried and true set-up on it yet. In fact I was running on a track that we normally run micro's on and was able to get it around the 4 foot wide lanes and tight 180 turns with out a problem. Can't wait to get it on a large track with a real set-up on it. Best R/C purchase since my 1/8 buggy!

I ran 104/28 yesterday with a Putnam Monster (blue/green Putnam brushes), and it was a tick soft on top speed in the main (but in no way slow). It came off the track at about 135-140F, so I will be going up one tooth, at least, the next time out. Your results may vary.

With any carbon fibre car you should smooth down the edges of the carbon with wet 'n' dry and sela em with super glue, file the battery slots at a 45* angle so the cells sit lower then seal them but make sure the cells do not sit so far down that they are hanging out the other side. CRC have got a few pictures on how to do this on their website

the battery slots are already pretty good...just smooth the edges and seal the sides so theres no chance of the battery shorting out...

A special request for all RDX owners out there...

I'm in search of 2 busted shock towers. The ones you probably broke one side of the camber links holes and now useless. However, the other side of camber links holes must be in original form.

PM me if you got a couple sitting in the bottom of your box, I'm willing to pay for shipping and even a small fee for them.

Thanks!
Dom

Geez, wish I'd seen that message a week ago, I busted two in that exact fashion. Hopefully I don't break any others, but I'll keep them around if I do. They're yours for the cost of shipping.
