I think you'll like the RDX. It's one of the easiest cars to drive on the market. Durability is very good however I would invest in the pDub bumper for it. It really helps...trust me. Maintenance isn't the easiest but it's not too bad. It's bulkheads aren't designed for easy access, but you'll be surprised at how quickly to can get your diffs out once you've done it a time or two. The cool thing about the RDX is you don't need to rebuild your diffs very often. I went three months before I rebuilt. It was still pretty smooth but I did it anyway.

I agree, and actually replacing the diff is *the exact steps* I had to do in replacing them on my Xray.

Same here...I just remove the right side bulkhead on either car. Takes about two minutes to unscrew the shock tower and right side bottom and top bulkhead screws

I wonder where they get their design cues. If you want to see where Xray got their original prototype just check out the Corally C4.

Yeah-its funny-what first caused a low moan at the thought becomes routine work on the car. It doesnt phase me a bit to take the RDX apart anymore. Stil a bit too time consuming, but no longer dreaded.

Default Diff height

I have followed this thread from the beginning and one topic I do not remember being discussed is what does raising or lowering the diffs do?

I know I will catch poo for this but I use Xray body mounts and Yokomo Adustable body nuts...Trinity also makes a knockoff of them...
Here is a link.

They are very helpfull when you are trying to get the exact height you are looking for.
Plus the COrally ones are not as easy to get the body off or on for that matter....
I like the design but maybe I am set in my ways..LOL
But I will say one thing...
Thank You for making the new rear grafite body mount.

Well, I raised my front diff at the Nats and it took away steering. It was easier to drive though. Essentially whatever diff you raise you would take traction away it seems.

I started building the car last night. Mostly complete. I have a couple of questions.


Is there an easy way to adjust the position of the inner pin mounts? It seems like a chore to get to the screw when the head is between the bulkheads.

Does the main lay shaft align itself when you tighten it from both sides? If not, it seems like a place for lots of drag.


The most recent car I built was the 415. I was amazed at how well that car went together. However, after building the RDX, Tamiya has nothing on Corally for parts fit and finish. I am working hard on the car to get it to the track for Saturday's practice sessions. I can't wait to drive this car.

i use a 2mm ball end driver to reach the inside roll center adjustments... oh yeah, i also swapped the screws for hex heads... much easier to change roll centers that way.
