Jeff,

Then, you are going to love me!

Just picked up an RDX carpet version kit.

Is there a Numan setup posted for the RDX???

To avoid breaking stuff get the RDX Rubberneck bumper and the kydex under bumper. Like a real car I choose to allow something to break off and its the front steering block I get those in plastic.. easy to change and you don;'t end up breaking an arm or hinge pin .

go fast = RDX!!!
Thanks for the tips. Can;t wait to put this kit together. You guys have any building / carpet setup tips to help me along the way...

Nope...Just don't get lapped too many times by Aaron Young with his RDX...

Tip...Get the BRP TC3 Kydex bumper and trim to the shape provided on the Corally website.

Best... hopup... ever.

Glancing blows in the front don't break arms or knuckles. Hard front impacts might bend the center bumper screw. If you hit real hard, you might break a bumper brace, but any car would break if you hit hard enough for that.

Dom,

Tiffany is running stock and 19T rubber. I hope this weekend to get her to run some mod rubber.

Default Battery STraps

With the RDX carpet spec chasis:

Is there any filing required to fit the 3800 batteries. Also, do most of you use the included battery strap or tape to keep the battery pack secure. Just checking to see if the battery stays put without issues using the standard battery strap.

Thanks

The new chassis are cut to fit the IB and GP3700's. YOu just need to round the edges just a touch to not cut the shrink wrap on the batteries. Too much and batteries will go below the chassis. As for the battery strap-Never had an issue with the factory battery strap. Furthermore-the RDX is lighter on the battery side than the electronic side-so no need to lose the strap.

The standard battery strap works fine. No issues. I would recommend beveling the slots to get the pack to sit lower. Otherwise you will notice the strap flexes down a bit since the cells are bigger around.
