When setting ride height on the RDX, do I have to true the foams down to 57mm-58mm from New to get to a 4.5mm to 5mm ride height when the rear shock is monted at 2nd hole from outside on the shock tower and 1st hole on inside toward hinge on rear arm like on Jeff Cuffs Las Vegas IIC setup?

Just wondering, I have a friend who used that set-up and only trued his tires to 62mm so he just layed down the shock a little more. I would like to use the set-up in it's entirety when I get my car 11-07-05.

Any info on this would be greatly appreciated.

you normally adjust your ride height with your preload collars on the shocks. If you are running foam tires you will most likely need to use soem different spring perches from AE or xray. They make the spring sit lower on the shock, so it's easier to get ride height with bigger tires.

I start my tire diameters at 58-59mm. If I start them at 59mm, I usually will run about 2-3 battery packs before the first qualifier. By this time, the tires should've weared down to 57.5-58.0mm. Don't forget to rotate your foams after each battery pack. This will ensure even tire wear on all four corners.

Thanks for the info. Any part numbers for the spring perches?

62mm tires are huge. If possible I would recommend starting more around 58 or 59mm like Roger mentioned. When the tires are over 60mm you get a lot of sidewall movement and leads to traction roll and possible funny handling characteristics.

Anyone have any ideas how to get rid of some front end slop? It looks like a combination of aluminum knuckle bearing slop, cvd slop and ball cup slop all rolled into one. I was just curious if anyone has dealt with this before I spend my allowance on a bunch of worthless crap that doesn't fix my problem.

I found that to be a problem as I put more miles on the car, so I de-slopped the car last night....

First, the bearings on the alu knuckles... I put a light coat of CA inside the knuckles so the bearings fit in there snug.

I put a very thin shim between the knuckles and c-hubs, slop gone.

Now just about the only thing sloppy is the ASC-like ball ends. I hear Schumacher ends are the ones to use. So will be searching for some of those.

I'm thinking about using Losi ballends, wonder if that would work.

you can use the RPM cups for AE/Losi, as they have the right size ball, 4.3mm? matches nice, and less slack. they are pretty snug on the turnbuckle, as the 3mm on the RDX is slightly larger than the 3/32 of the RPM's..

i used the white RPM's on my carpet car.... matches the white pulleys real nice!

Wes


oh yeah, on the rear, if you use the lower holes on the shock tower, some material may have to be shaved, as it will bind on the bulkhead. still plenty strong.

Dom,
I heard the Schumacher grippa ball cups are the way to go as well.

Let me know if you find any... every time I call Tammies I'm put on hold for 10mins and I finally give up!
