Torbjørn,

The car will be too planted to carry good corner speed on asphalt with the low roll center blocks all around. I'd suggest going back to the standard blocks in front.

I think Jeff Brown said they had trouble with overheating the tires when using the low roll-center blocks on asphalt. Maybe you're experiencing some trouble related to that?

It makes the car REALLY lazy and it wont transition that fast at all. It makes the RDX feel like a slug on asphalt (not good) hahaha. The only time I use low roll blocks is when I'm on carpet with foam tires. The standard roll blocks are great for rubber tire racing.

Thanks for all answer!
So the standard blocks is best in front?
But the could work better with low blocks at rear?

I have seen a settup with ahoniemi brothers,and they had use the low
blocks in front and 2pc at the end of rear!

That was on tarmac with rubber tires,and they had anti squat at rear when
they use 2pc low blocks!

I would use the std blocks all the way round to start. Just put them in the lowest roll center position you can get with the standard blocks (position #1, I think).

Jeff, can you bring an extra 2.4 mm topdeck with you? We might need them.

Jeff bring your game face Brad was dropping 12.9's and 12.8s all day today, and even got a 12.7. Only guy racing who cracked below 13.0 Besides your man Brian Koch with 1 12.9


Traction was not very good today and Brian your setup didnt work very well today. Mike Nelson and Brian Koch both ran different setups and Brians was the better of those two. I started with yours from IRP and it was way loose, and i started going towards Koch's setup but didnt get all the way, ran out of time.

Ummm........ I'll talk with Rob and see what I can bring with me. Should not be a problem. If traction is an issue let me know. Rear end or front end grip? Shoot an email over to us to remind me.

What bumper system is the "ultimate"? I've read about pdub, kydex, rubberneck, etc.

Durability is a big concern for me since I'm new to TC, so which bumper system should I be buying?

The SRC "Ultimate" bumper is the one you want. It is a Rubberneck style with the Kydex lower.

Rob/Jeff:

Since all the kits over the last 6+months have included the new 1-piece, white diff pulleys, maybe Corally should change the packaging for their spool.

Right now, all you get is the aluminum piece. People that bought a kit in the last 6+ months don't have the black 42T pulley or the 3 tiny screws to attach it, and will have to buy those separate. Maybe start including those items in one package, just as is done for the 1-way unit. Makes it a lot simpler.
