I've been running alum front arms and steering blocks since assassin days, I haven't bent anything, yes I do crash a lot - hard. The inner hinge pin will break in three parts in a bit hit, everything else lines up on the set up board.

Cheers
Peter

I'm almost tempted to put aluminum arms on the front, because that's the only thing I break on the car, and only with very minor glancing blows. I just don't want to bend other things, but it's not like I'm hitting stuff hard.
Have you put the Specialized hard (wide) foam bumper (Rubberneck) and kydex bumper add-on on your car. These two items REALLY protect the front end and weigh very little.

I have had no arm failures on the front end with these; however, have lost 4 arms on the rear end. Tried a soft arm on the rear; but, failure was only in a different location on that arm. Corally needs to address this problem...

Hey guys when I first purchased my kit I bought two kits, one to run and one for parts. Well I have a large stash of parts now, so if anyone is looking for a brand new RDX (One-Way kit) check out my for sale link, http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthread.php?t=98210

most all those setups posted on corally usa are very good starting points for what ever type of racing you do. Then maybe some minor changes for your driving style and your money

I got lost of suggestions Try running less caster in the front, maybe a touch more front camber, Run a Shorter link, or move it to the upper row for adjustment. You can loosen your rear droop screws a touch, stand up your front shocks one hole, maybe a touch more toe out in the front. Also if you havent already, try the narrow wheel hex's. They make the car wake up a bit and react faster overall.

Default rdx

Does the car tweak easy? Will this car run good on fair tight track running 19t on rubber tires? Thanks

I have only one suggestion : get the alloy steering, it's no use trying to set the car up with the plastic one.

RE-wishbones : Corally have been told since the days of the Assassin they need to redesign them. This by their own test drivers. First they said it was because they were machined with Delrin, and that molded ones will not break. I suppose now they will have understood that they need to add material at some places, and remove it at others. If they'd run a FEA on their wishbones they'll see where to add material and where to remove some. It's not half as expensive to modify an already existing mold than to make one.

I only run the plastic steering blocks. I think I have broke only 2 or 3 since Snowbirds last year. Other than bearings seizing and melting them, but that is another story.

FEA hmmmm.....

Tweak easily.......... well, not really. No where near the T2, go multiflex! Did I just say that out loud?

Tight tracks...... not a problem. I would check out the setups on www.corallyusa.com and they should be able to dial you in.
