I took two weeks off and played VRC basically non-stop. Finally raced last night... I don't think they're going to let me run my 4300 in stock anymore. I figured that would be the first thing to go if I ever had some success. :-D It really does unfairly rip out of corners, but it's SO much fun to drive a car with torque on a small carpet track. The lack of maintenance is just a fringe benefit.

The better I get, the more I appreciate my RDX. The car was so smooth and amazingly precise last night, it really surprised me. It makes me feel bad for car manufacturers that have to hear opinions about their cars from inexperienced drivers. I realize now, if the car could talk, it would be like "is that all you've got?" I think it's getting bored waiting for me to improve.

Back to practicing...

You down at Jackson practicing already? If you are not racing outside this weekend I wll be at Frederick it looks like. Weather is kinda in limbo for Sat and don't want to drive 2 hours to get rained on at GB. One of these weeks I will make it to GB for a little outdoor fun.

Yeah, Robbay (like Timay), I even told Jeff Brown that I was super impressed with how your car looked at the Coliseum two weekends ago.

Honestly, your Corally out of the box has been stupid-fast since you built it. I mean, at Mimi's WinterNats you definitely had one the three fastest cars laptime-wise all weekend. Just had a 'lil bad luck in the main.

If you have the aluminum steering blocks - it'll be easy to see if there's been some "pin rubbing" on the inside. If you are using the black plastic steering blocks the pin "wear" markes may not be as easy to see.

I've actually had a pin loose like that and it worked it's way into the holes where the C-Hub pins are and completely lock up the axle/wheel.

An easy fix for this is to "dremel" a flat spot in the center of the "cross pin" so when you re-tighten the set screw that holds it in place - the set screw will have a liitle more grip to hold onto. (ps. put a small amout of threadlock on the tip of the set screw- that'll help also)

Hope this fixes your ~SHAKE~ ??
So I checked the pins. They were a bit off on one side but fixing it didnt fix the problem. I think at this point I will just take it out for a spin and see how it does. I havent had a chance to get it to the track yet to see how it performs.

Hey Larry, I can send you the setup I've been running, or the setup Danny Hartman gave me to start with. Both are very similar. Just let me know, and I can email it over to you. BTW, congrats on pickin up a fast car
