Then all you got to do is use 3/32 carbide diff balls and ceramic thrust bearing and it's the smoothes dif ever seen!!!
I just did this mod tonight. Wow, pretty impressive on the bench, just need to see how it does on the track! I do like the option to overdrive the car!

I watched your car during your qualifier's and it looked dialed. I think the 2nd round, you were on TQ pace !!!!! I was kinda bummed out about being in first the majority of the A-main until the last lap. I should've went on cruise control because I was up by 2 seconds. Anyways, I just need to re-evalute and go on to the next race. Learn about the car more and go from there. Other than that, the car felt really good tonight. I can only go up from here. Considering that this was the first car's race, I was very impressed with my RDX.

Kinbrough is a direct fit, can't speak for the others.

Yea I was on a TQ pace ...but at about 3 minutes I couldn't handle the intensity, that's my current "keep it up" mark right now, I was starting to get "jittery" and I figured I better back off a bit before I wad the car up. Yea the car was hecka dialed, that was hella kewl of Aaron to come by just to set my car up

These have been the best spurs I have ever used...
http://www.teameamotorsports.com/cat...roducts_id=154
The same manufacture makes great pinions as well.
Never had a problem with either....
No problems fitting either..
I had a problem with the 104 RW spurs fitting.. I had to do a little fanagling and it stripped the second run...Probably my own fault but the Persision ones EA sells are the best out there IMHO.

Dom,

Have you tried out your modifications yet? Going to Spokane this weekend?

I wish I could go, my car is super dialed on rubber tires.

Well, maybe the locals...

Hey Brad,

No, not going, couldn't get Friday nor Monday off. Why aren't you going? But I'll be at Tri for sure. As far as mods go, the ones the I sent you pics for, I've been running that for awhile now. As far as the Losi pulley mod goes, I'll probably be down at Ron doing some testing on those, also going to try what it's like with an overdrive. Should have a report after this weekend.

Dom

Dom,

I had somethings come up, but I will be running the rest of the series. The wife sold her xray last night and has bought an RDX. There is a new guy working at the track and he just bought an RDX. I let a couple more people drive my car last night and they fell in love with the car as well.

that is good to hear!

I would like to believe I single handedly created the RDX population here in Oregon. I was the only person running it, now there are 6 of us and more guys talking about the car. But, I think the speed of the car really spoke for itself.
