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.
Yeah, I don't know why they don't just put them in the same bag. Probably because the kit was originally going to be a one-way kit so you would have the pulley. I will shoot an email overseas to suggest it.

I'm not totally sure. I was looking at this setup below and probably make some roll center changes.

for those interested - Larry from Team Tamale said he should have the shock tower braces (similar to the T2 braces) done this week sometime - he is going to make a handful so if you are interested shoot me a pm - i think they are only going to be around $12-15 for a set (front and rear)

AB Charles and sons 412 561 3068. Ask for Jim. He always has them in stock and I'm not really sure what his prices are on the kits, but I know they have the best deal in the nation!

IRP currently has way more traction. That may change next weekend, but be prepared to dial in more grip for all 4 corners.

This was the cause of the diff loosening madness... thanks for the advice guys.

Default Rw Spur Gears

I have just tried to put RW spur gears on my RDX. However when trying to attach the adapter to the spur i noticed that only two of the screw holes match up with the spur. Is this right or is there another adapter which needs to the be used with RW spur gears.

Cheers

Default Buying a New RDX

I'm ordering an RDX today and I was just hoping I could get some pointers on what additional items I'll need. Here's my list so far for stock racing on indoor carpet:

- Corally Tool Set (#16070)
- Specialized RC "Ultimate" Bumper
- Silver Spring Set
- Futaba 9550 and Futaba Servo Saver

Am I missing anything? For spares I was told to get a pack of the extra hard arms and front and rear body mounts.

get spare front knuckles and arms, unless your track is hard on body mounts, you dont need them, however most people either drill out the stock mount or they swap it for the HPI ones so they can use clips, I prefer the "tophats" myself

You are on the right path...here is what i have found you need:

- I didn't like the torx screws, so i put regular hex screws throughout, so i didn't get the tool set
- bumper is a must
- the silver spring set comes with it, so get the black set
- futaba 9550 is one of the best out there
- i would get aluminum steering blocks - that is what i was breaking the most - so i spent $40 bucks on those
- i bought the lunsford titanium camber links for easier adjustments for toe and camber
- xray or hpi body posts work great if you want to use regular body clips for your body

- if you are running on carpet:
--lowered shock tower is great
--if you can afford it, it is not a must but is nice - the low roll center blocks - they are around $7-8 for one block and yo will need 8 of them

for spares:
- arms
- nice to have a shock tower or two laying around
- if you don't get the aluminum steering blocks, get some spare steering blocks
- rear body post holder - just in case you get punted into a wall

i think that should get you going - i have bought alot from AB Charles and Son, they are easy to work with and have a wealth of RDX knowledge

Mr. McGoo covered it all pretty well. If you get the lowered shock tower for carpet racing, you'll need to take 3 mm off the threaded portion of the shock shaft and the shock end. This keeps the piston in the same place within the shock as it would be with a stock tower.

You should get the Kimbrough medium (for TCs) servo saver. It's black and larger than Kimbrough's small 12th scale servo savers.
