My personal opinion is that 05 parts have been hard to find, some parts are still on backorder....it may start to get worse.

Post in the wanted section on here for a chassis, a nice used one would be cheaper, then go new car shopping (or used) in a couple of months.

why is it delaminating? did you seal the chassis edges with CA?

you can't go wrong with the RDX.. just remember to seal the edges of the chassis with CA and quit hitting shit!

Guys,

Just building an RDX and wondering..........

The instructions show different diff pulleys to what is included in the kit which is no problem i understand this i just an update but do you glue the rings on that clip onto the while pully or do they stay on without glue ??

Secondly kit came with the old diff screw threaded all the way down. Is it safe to build and run with this until the new one arrives or are they really that likely to break and get jamed in the plastic outdrive nut?

and any other tips I need to know for the actual build would be greatly received

Please help. ( I have searched the threads but not had any joy and not got time to read 200+ pages and get the car built this week )

Thanks
Andy

They included the new lightweight pulleys as a running change. Just build them up, dont worry about gluing the side part of them on, they stay together really well. The Diff screw should be fine. I still have the old ones in my car actually. Just dont tighen the diff too much. I usualy tighten a little bit, then work the diff for a about a minute, then tighten down it down a little bit again. Just do this process untill it wont slip anymore, then do final adjustment while it is in the car.

Need a clarification here!!

Team driver said whit the long shock extension we can run softer spring like 19lbs and 22 lbs!! but when i read some handling set up guide it sais more the shock is inclined more the car will have traction !!

so whit the long extension the shock is more inclined rigth?? so why not running like 24or 26 in the back whit the long extension cause the shock is more inclined???

i need some clarify here!! (team driver)

Later!!

When you extend the mounting point on the arm closer to the wheels, it takes a greater amount of force to overcome the spring tension. In other words, the closer the bottom shock mounting position gets to the wheels/tires, the stiffer it becomes.

I glued the ring. I've had a couple of them pop off so I don't take chances. As for the diff bolt: I just replace mine this weekend. I ran the stock ones for over a year and never had a problem. I needed to rebuild the diffs so I did the replacement while I had it apart. If you have quick access to the new bolt, I would recommend putting it in from the start. If you don't have them, I wouldn't worry too much.
