Hi Joe.

That mean at you can change your front kickup and anti-dive. Read that in your manual, page 27.

0 - low roll centers (79121)
1 - stock roll center
2 - stock flipped over
3 - stock moved to upper hole
4 - stock flipped and in upper hole

NOTE: the front does not have an upper location in the rear of the bulkhead. The highest you could run is position 2, unless you used the Low Roll and flipped it.

[QUOTE=syndr0me]The inside diameter of GQ foams is smaller than Jaco by about 1-1.5mm. Oddly enough, this seems to be a large enough difference to cause binding when applying power with the wheels turned, and only on the track with weight transfered to the front corner of the car. This only seems to happen when I run brushless, which has significantly more torque.

I realize putting orange wheels on an RDX is like some kind of bad joke in the eyes of most people, but I really like the way they look, and the way they wear (doing a lot of practicing with the brushless). The binding was a real pain to figure out since it was so inconsistent, and happened at such odd times. So, something to keep in mind I guess. I'm curious if anybody else has experienced this.

QUOTE]

I use GQ tires on my RDX. When I dial in maximum steering I hear some rubbing. But, since I donít use maximum steering it really isn't an issue for me.

The inside of the wheel seems to bind on the end of the arm as weight is transferred to that side, and the suspension compresses. The wheels hitting the shocks under full lock isn't any different than other brands of tires, which is obviously dialed out with EPA.

I dunno, maybe it really does have something to do with torque. My brushed motors (only tried stock and 19) have never caused this to happen. Or maybe it's all that drinking...

It's not the diameter of the tire that causes the rubbing it's the width of the tire. Not sure about GQ tires but upon my last check with Jaco against TRC, Parma and Speedmind, Jaco had the largest inside diameter wheel but they were also the widest...by over 1.5mm in some cases.

I rcurrently run Jacoon my RDX and when mounting the shocks all the way out on the arm, the wheels rub on the shock spring retainer when turning.

As another poster said, dial out some steering. I also use 1 degree or toe out. That will help.

Not 100% sure what you are asking as the spring perches have nothing to do with bolts or screws. The spring perch gets sliped on the shock shaft and finally rests on the ball end that you screwed to the end of the shock shaft. I have the Associated on mine and they fit perfect.

If you are confused, go look at your manual where the building of the shocks is discussed. The spring perch that everyone is talking about is called a "Spring Collar" in the Corally manual. This is the only aftermarket part that is needed when building the shocks. But this mod is only used when you are running foam tires!! If you run rubber, use the stock spring perches.

Hope this helps.
