well i never had it on there to begin with, guys at my track said it shouldnt be on there.

I am just frustrated cause i have tried a couple other guys setups at my track and the car still rolls over,,,, i dont know if it maybe my not that good radio or what,,, but no matter what i do it will not stay on all 4's when traction comes up.

Give Shane @ IRP a PM. He is working on a one way setup that is super easy to drive and fast! He might help you out, if you promise not to out qualify him @ the Novak!

I am not sure you'll, find the answer to that here. I cannot think of anyone that runs Tamiya shocks on the RDX as the Corally shocks are just as good.

You nee to move the receiver onto the Servo or top deck. That was the only way I could fit mine.

I think he was refering to using Tamiya Pistons like some drivers have.
Yes you need to shim the piston as it is just a bit thinner than Corally pistons I forgot which washer I used. Just find some that will fit and are not binding the piston.
Hope that helps,

You adjust droop with the set screws that go through the suspension arms. Adjusting the hingepin height on the bulkhead changes roll center.
