Thanks for the info.




I noticed that on many of the carpet/foam setup sheets the short arms are used. What are the long arms used for?

Is there an 'out of the box' setup sheet in the box? I dont see one on the website for the carpet spec.

Help with droop setup

What do you run ? tarmac/rubber carpet/rubber ?

How do you measure it .... I have seen all sorts of numbers..

I assume from the bottom of the chassis up ?

If you know could you clarify

Thanks
Andy

I posted this in the other corally thread (under the manuf group) and have gotten no answer, so I'll try here ---

I'm a recent RDX convert ...have a question, I bought a kit from my LHS last weekend, and got a second one which was recvd last Thursday at my LHS, the chassis seem "different":

Her's some pics of the kit I got Thursday vs. the one I got last week, (the one with the arrows is the newest one), see how the weights are a little father back, and there's a "weird slot" next to the battery and the battery bar is farther away from the top deck:





Doesn't seem to be a major issue, other than the newer one is hella easier to take the batteries out, I'm just wondering what the diff is? And what that weird little slot next to the batteries are.

@Harshguy

With both chassis it is possible to run the bigger cells (3800's, 3700's). The Battery Straps of both chassis are the same. The really old chassis did not have RDX in it. The lower picture shows only the latest changes. Battery Strap has moved a few mm's to the outside of the car. The "weird slot" close to the batteries and countersunk hole of the Battery Strap Post are meant to make it easier to Dremel a bigger hole for taping your cells. There are drivers that only want to tape their batteries, instead of using a Battery Strap.

Hey guys,

This is a weird one!! The Gates traction has been through the roof lately-that means sticky nasty tire foam flying to the belts of my car. Let say my belts are clogged and my pulleys filled and gooey. I can clean my pulleys , etc with only a little hardship.

But how do I clean the belt without affecting it in an bad way? Ive used a little wd40-but my belts are still sticky after wiping. Anyone know a safe trick?

Ray

Ray, Simple Green is a great cleaner for rubber. Works great on tires, too, as a cleaner/conditioner.

BTW, Ray and others, after some serious inspection of my broken front end parts, the lightbulb went on as to the problem with my parts breakage. The CVD on the right is definitely colliding with the interior of the diff, however, it isn't what I thought it was. It is smacking into the diff screw head. Using 6 cone washers in the thrust assembly in the diff, the screw will stick out about .030" further than normal. In a direct lateral impact, like I have been having, the CVD slams against the screw head, and explodes everything soft on the axle.

I shimmed the lower blocks out 1mm on each side, and it looks like all of the clearance issues have been taken care of. I think this should fix all of the breakage problems, regardless of the bumper being used.

Ray - Try a product called "Blow Off" Rubber Rejuvenator. You could spray onto a tooth brush and directly clean the belts. This stuff works great!

The newer car as the latest chassis revision which I just found out about yesterday. The slots are so you can open it up and tape batteries in like someone mentioned. If you notice there is a slot in front of the 6 cells as well. Only thing is once you cut the rear slot you cannot go back to the strap.

You will also notice that slots have been removed under the motor and there are 2 holes drilled now too. That is for later use.
