Just a point of view that people seem to forget........

The bulkhead was released at the Snowbirds. So, that means Dayger won Novak and Cleveland with the only options at the time, the X-long extensions and the 4mm chassis. So did the bulkhead make him faster, not really, he was already fast.

Jim Herrmann TQed the Novak race with a standard US Carpet Spec kit. No X-long extensions, no 4.0mm chassis or anything. You can buy a standard US Carpet Spec and compete at the highest level. You can get his setup here... http://www.corallyusa.com/2005/setups/RDXnovakJIM.pdf

I think people get into the mode that they won't be fast without these options which is not true. They are pricey and probably most people can't do them all at once. I know a lot of team drivers that do not use the option parts and say they may never use them.

Perhaps future buyers should spend some time getting familiar with the price and availability of parts prior to purchasing an RDX. It's not cheap, but you cannot deny the quality.

Also, if you can purchase parts from one of the dealers and not Corally USA, you'll get a better deal. Presumably, Corally USA prices the parts a bit higher to give their dealers a competitive advantage, and some incentive to stock their parts. The problem I've found is that most places don't have enough parts, or rarely have them in stock. I try to place an order when I need a few things, and it's almost always that one of the dealers never has all those things in stock. But, it's still worth trying those places first. Stormer and Speedtech both have really nice online shops, and run their sites like a proper business, and stock a decent number of Corally parts.

I think it would help alot.

I know Take-Off makes some. They have a nice wide flange on them too. Should be available thru racing-cars.com

They are 4mm and use a 7mm wrench.

Well, since one manufacturer does not make all the parts that would be included, I am not sure how much it would save. Perhaps worth looking into though.

Hey Jeff, I bought the new lightweight diff pullies for my car (to replace the black ones) and the new lightweight pullies were slightly heavier than my old black original pullies. What's the deal with that? On another note I was hearing that some team drivers are using the standard rollcenter blocks over the low rollcenter blocks on carpet. Is this true?
