Make sure you have some droop in the car. If you have no down travel, the inside tires will lift immediatly.

I run 2.5mm of shims in the front with the NARROW hex adapters. Just seemed to handle better. As far as breakage, I've broken a few shock towers from very odd high speed crashes, one steering knuckle, a few cracked 75% arms, and bent a cvd bone. For having the car since march and for a smuch racing I do thats not bad at all.

As far as the traction rolling, the stock .9mm pistons didnt work for me at all on rubber. I like the 1.3mm pistons or even tamiya 3 hole pistons with a thin shim on top fit in the corally shocks. I think the dampening is just too thick, because my car felt very strange when I ran the .9mm pistons on rubber tires. You can try running a slightly stiffer setup or even gluing the sidewalls of the tires helps to a certain extent. CS-27's, Sorex 28R's and ING 22's and 25's are the only tires I ever use on carpet really. Hope this helps a little bit.

I just built my first RDX and I'm wondering if there have been any issues with running a front diff that's required to face the opposite direction of the rear. Does the front ever loosen itself because the bolt is on the right side instead of the left, like in the rear?

Haha, I've got you beat, just in the last two weeks alone.

BTW, just to clarify, I do already run the Rubberneck front bumper, just not the one with the Bud's Kydex one underneath it. I'm 99.9% sure that my problems will be cured by spacing the drive axles away from the diffs further.

The largest you can run and run a rear swaybar is 104. I run a 112, myself. As far as max largest...not too sure. Probably around a 115-118.

Are you using tire compound?

if so clean you tires after each run and try going a little less on the front tires

Are you running your rubber tires on carpet or asphalt ?

Yes. It starts at 26 lbs and goes up 6-different spring rates.
