Hello, my name is Mr. McGoo, and I am addicted to Xray. (Everyone together Hi, Mr.McGoo) For the longest time i thought Xray was the my cure to the A-main, but I hadn't seen the light. I was so mezmorized my multi-flex technology that it overrided my good judgement.....

Now with a hangover due to lack of parts support and explanation of why, i was forced to look elsewhere on my LHS wall o' cars. And that is when i saw the black and red box.....now, here i am - seeing the light in the RDX.....(now everyone clapping and having a group hug)



Just bought my RDX yesterday at the LHS - i used to be one of Xray's biggest supporters, but with their recent debacle of the release of the T2 - i had enough, and so i bought a RDX....YAHOO.....

unfortunately, i am a lone RDX'er out at my track, so i will need some help with setup....i downloaded some of the setup sheets from corallyusa.com, but was curious if anyone had any other tips/advice.

is there anything options that are must have - i run on medium bite CRC ozite fairly technical. any help would be most appreciated.

once again, "My name is Mr. McGoo, and i am no long addicted to Xray...."

hey Mark... congrats on the purchase! im sure you will like.

i can pm you later with my setup from last time down there at Mikes, but i think it was a slightly modified Cuffs-Vegas one, if i remember right. i did change a few things, as the bite isnt quite as high.

i think some from up here are planning a trip down again, to prepare for the state race... ill keep ya posted.

Wes

Welcome

I dont think you are the only one who is seeing the light now a' days. More and more people are switiching because of certain issues with Xray.

I hope you enjoy the car ,

Mr. McGoo,

You would be best off with any of our setups from the Novak Race. Jim Herrmann's (TQ), Jeff Dayger's (win) and my setups are all very fast and easy to drive. Brian Lutz's car was also very good. I don't remember exactly if it says on the sheet, but Jeff and I used the Xtra long rear extensions, instead of the stock pieces. Use a 22 or 24 lb rear spring for stock extensions.

i sent him that setup you gave me from the Midwest series, Brian... i still have that on my foam car mostly, maybe a few minor changes.

Marc races at the closest carpet track to me down in Dallas... talk about X-ray city!

last time i was there, my car seemed pretty good with that setup.

see, this is what i am talking about - i have already received setup help from wes wood and ron atomic - i was extremely impressed with the way the Corally drivers presented themselved at snowbirds, and i am impressed now as i am a RDX newcomer....

i will be working on car this week, so i will let you all know how it goes....

and YES i am in Xray city - actually only a few miles from RCAmerica - hence i am the lone RDXer right now, but maybe with a good showing i can sway some people over to the shiney black/red box.

I can say that my car is good enough to convince one guy (Xray driver) to go out and buy a new RDX and hopefully more to come. For the first time I broke a rear arm yesterday (traction was really high and forgiveness was not, and it wasn't the new arms) and it seemed to be a bad roll for me because in the main I broke a second one, same arm back to back LOL. Trying to hug boards is bad.

Patrick (pipih2000) - I will be calling you this week or next. It was great to see you at that race. I have been doing a lot of research on what we talked about. Sorry if I spelled your name wronge.

Concerning Jeff Dayger's setup at Team Corally. What is meant by "shims under couplers"? What couplers, are they talking about between the front bulkhead and chassis?

Couplers = hinge pin blocks

By shims under couplers, it means the total amount of shimming of those blocks. Stock, by the manual, it is 1 mm. We usually run 2 - 2.5 all the time.

I see...Jeff wants less camber regression.....and he wants turn-in. Spool? Methinks yes.

Back to HW for me now...lol
