sorry for the late respnonse.. went to the Region 2 race!! Corally was once again dominating the field..Cuffs, Dodge, Derrroch, and all the local RDX drivers!!

Im finally back to the RDX... slipped of the track a little, got a great deal on the "new cars" could not stand the inconsistency of it, and bought a new Rdx friday night.. should have gotten it early and it would have been ready to go!!!

ok the diff bolt with the new kit, is threaded all the way down with an allen head screw like jeff metioned.. but will it break?? i know the newer version bolt has a shoulder on it... hopefully this kit version will not cause problems for now, gonna get new bolt anyways. my old ones were showing signs of wear at the bottom of the threads but never broke..... just replaced them before problem occurred.

im just glad im back... thanks jeff. i did see some not running the extensions and some running standard roll centers in the cars... they say running standard roll centers freed up the car more if tracton allows it.

ok back to building!!

later.

i broke 2 this past weekend, and i know a couple of drivers did as well...with that said, i am having team tamale fashion up a shock tower brace for me - similar to his T2 shock tower braces -

if anyone is interested in grabbing a couple, let me know and i will let Larry know how many to make - it will probably be a couple weeks out, but if you are interested, shoot me a pm

I always prefer a front one way on carpet with rubber tires. I know MCgreevy likes a diff still on rubber... but I've always found a one way easier to click off faster lap times. It rolls through the middle of the corner a lot faster.

I would run the Standard front shock tower with rubber tire as well. It's easier to get the correct ride height and such.

Your right about the Corally group but you forgot to mention Danny Hartman and Mike McBride as well............and you can thank Rob Michaels for allowing Ray Darrock to remain up north for acouple of weeks to race at the regionals and the upcoming Grand Finale in Cleveland....I am sure Rob has stuff for Ray to do down south .

Default Have you ever had a screw stuck that just won't come out?

Have you ever had a screw stuck that just won't come out? I have and yes, I've done what everyone else has probably had to to before. Get the dremel out & cut a slot in the head (and my chassis) and use a large straight head screwdriver out and "hope" it comes out before you torque the head of the screw off.

Well, I tried something last night that worked great!! So next time you have a stubborn screw try this!

#1) If it doesn't come out naturally....DON'T force it! You'll just strip it out....

#2) Put a drop or two of WD-40 around the head of the screw (where you can see the edge of the countersink)

#3) Wait about 10 minutes.....

#4) Take your soldering iron and heat up the head of the screw for about 1 minute...... the oil will boil around the head and it'll loosen up the threads.

THEN>> Give it a good TWIST! and walaaaaa! It should come out...

If not, heat it up for another minute and try again.... but remember Don't force it.... it'll eventually work. It did for me...!

Hope this helps someone out there!!!

I finally installed the lowered shock tower last night with the required mods. I shortened the shock shafts and ball ends 3mm. I noticed the spring retainers won't fit on the ball ends anymore, so I had to ream them out just a tiny bit. They now bottom out on the ball ends, which seems to be okay and doesn't get in the way when the shocks are screwed into the A-arms. Is that what you guys are doing too?

It definitely makes it easier to put the body on the car, and looks nice. What else does it do again? :-D

I'm going to give Cuffs' IIC setup a try. I noticed he went to the black springs for the back of the car, which is the first I've seen on a carpet setup.

Is there any good carpet racing around the Washington D.C./Herndon area? I'm stuck here all week for a stupid business trip, so I thought I might get out and watch a good club race if there are any within a reasonable distance.

Syndr0me,

We've been running black springs in the back of the car for quite some time: for about a year.

I run 19 or 22 lb rears with the long extensions...24 lb with the standard ones...with 33 lb fronts being the norm.

As for the lowered tower procedure...it all sounds good. I never had to ream anything once it was all done, but the spring cups should fit right on top of the ball-end like you said.
