Actually, Jeff, RW gears do fit...at least the ones I've used have.

I think it depends on if you are using 48 pitch rw spurs or the 64 pitch ones. I remember 48 pitch spurs had a slightly different bolt pattern. I just remember xray guys using them for a while complaining they coulding use the 64 pitch gears. I have used the 64 pitch spurs with success on the RDX though.

You my have some really old RW gears. I am not aware of any car that the RW's do not fit on. As of December of 2004 RW 64p gears have 12 outer holes just like Kimbrough on the same bolt circle. The inner 6 holes are on the same bolt circle as the inner row on a Kimbrough gear but with only 4 holes. This lets you fit the gear to Xray's 3 bolt gear adapter and everyone else 2 bolt adapter.

The 48dp gears have fewer holes (as they are never used as diff gears) but fit the same.

They changed it to the 79224 a while ago. Your kit should have the 1.3 pistons in it.

I ran my Corally RDX in a race for the first time over the weekend. I broke 2 a-arms in practice (one hard hit and one soft hit). The qualifying went better, but in the second heat if I would just tap a wall the front ball caps would come off. I ended up qualifying third. In the main I had 2 ball caps pop and then I think my Novak 4.5 thermal and I only got 5 laps.

A few questions for you all:
First: What are you all using to replace the Corally turnbuckes and ball caps?

Seconded: Should I cut the blue wire on my Novak speed controller and 4.5 motor? Or should I gear down. Iím running 105/30. 7.0 roll out.

Third: What a-arms would you guys recommend for asphalt track? I have the hard ones on and I just ordered the extra hard ones.

Thanks for any adviceÖ.

you need the SRC ultimate bumper or take the BRP TC3 bumper at you local hobbyshop and cut it to fit the RDX!! www.corallyusa.com have the desing of th ebumper you can print and cut on the wide BRP TC3 bumper!!

but your best buy will be the SRC RDX bumper combo(Hard Foam and Wide Plastic Bumper)

i use the TC3 turnbuckles but the lunsford titanium its the best!!
and RPM turnbuckles cap are bigger and they are pretty good you cant pop off the rpm jujst like that!! they are tight!!!!

also the new a-arm will be avaible soon but you can still perform whit breaking arm whit the stock one!! i dsont break them often!!!! but if its a big problem for you!! just buy the new stronger arm!! ( they are biffffffff) ehhe!!

Later!!

Anyone have a safe (and secure, and girlfriend-proof) way of fitting an Orion lipo pack into an RDX? I know the battery posts can be shimmed to clamp the pack down to the deck as pictured earlier in the thread, but that's not going (imho) to prevent lateral movement. Looking for some alternative other than Shoe Goo'ing battery straps to the lipos, which would work but would be costly buying either more packs or more straps. Also, as-is the fit is so tight that the top of the battery strap is this/close to binding on the bottom of the upper deck.

Suggestions (with pics?) appreciated.

Tape the Lipo pack to the battery strap. That way you can still remove it from the car.
