No need to lube the bearings, just collects dirt. The images on the website are old pictures. The white pulleys were first offered as an option and now are included with the kit.

Two weeks in a row now, I've finished my main and later found one of the roll blocks to be missing the screw and washer. Is anyone else having this issue? I shouldn't have to locktite these screws, or should I?

I put a little tiny bit on. The washer is liek a spring washer so it should prevent that.... but sometimes it's nice to have that extra security.

Did you put the 3x8 screws in? You at least need those for the the length.

Tony I had the same problem and now use the blue locktite with no issues.

Ive got a bit of a problem with my RDX and its Pisssing me off

I have a striped spur gear and i need to change it....the only problem is that the screw that holds the assembly is rounded off and you cannot get no grip what so ever. I need to get this sorted soon, has any one got any ideas on how i can get my spur out and get this stupid rounded screw out.

P.S what spur gears will fit the RDX without buying/doing and mods

Ta,

Wills

These fit nice...
http://www.speedtechrc.com/store/ebp...?catmainid=392

But I also use these
http://www.teameamotorsports.com/cat...roducts_id=154
Because they are supper percise(sp)...

To get a screw out that has rounded out I also use a screw that has a taper simular to the shape of the screw head. Than drill off the head and when you take the hole thing off there should be enough screw sticking out to grab with some needle nose pliers or vice grips...
If you take too much off the head you might not have enough to grab...So take off only all you need...

Again let me say this again.....This car rocks....I got my RDX so dialed...
What I love about this car most is that I have the entire RDX US Team at my disposal for help. Ertrachter, Toso, Albright and of coarse you Jeff. Never have I felt more in touch with the comunication lines..
I now just have to drive the car better...LOL
I tried those new 3* blocks on high bit asphalt(SoCal) and they make the car almost too aggresive and cause you to turn in way too fast...My D rate was like 62% and it still was really tight...
I will try those new rear carriers as per Ertracher and Bitter's suggestions If all the hype is real...I don't know if my car could get any more hooked up....LOL
Thanks everyone mentioned all those here for the help.
Car is great...
Can not wait to see what comes next...(NOT A NEW CAR just part upgrades....LOL)
Any chance of a WORLDS Addition RDX...LOL

Ok I have a setup question. When I first got my car, I built it with stock setup. I took it out for the first run and ran great it felt really dialed to the asphalt surface I was running and the back was sticking to my line. Now I change the front shock oil to AE 30 wt with the 17.0 lb srpings and rear to AE 35 wt with the 14.5 lb springs, and the back end seems to loose control and fish tail on me? Any suggestions? Everything eles is stock for now, this was setup suggestions I recieved by driver at my local hobby shop. It's meant to be for asphalt but anyone have any suggestions on how to correct it?

Flip your shock oils. The stiffer rear oil won't let it transfer weight to the rear fast enough on-power, making it loose. For rubber tire a good oil choice would be 50/30 or 40/30.
