Default Rubber Tire Carpet Set up

Hey all -

I'm looking for the best Rubber Tire Carpet Set up. I'm running on low traction carpet.

I just can't get the rear end to hook up...! (Help)

that was the diff for the assassin before the lightweight diff, that we use now, was developed, they are nice diffs and they last really lone between rebuilds, and the best part, you can lighten them if you want

Start with Ertrachter's setup from the Vegas race last year. It's on the CorallyUSA website.

Hey guys I hail from Australia and have recently started running the RDX (bout a month) I have had xrays before and I am liking the rdx more each time i take it out its extreemly responsive and responds well to tuning.

Anyway I run stock (27t motors) and have come to realise that the venting holes on the old monster stocks and the new co27s face directly down into the chassis. This is of concern to me as it does not allow the motors to perform at their peak performance as it cuts of ventilation causing the motors to heat up quicker and on the dyno if you hold your fingers over one side of the vents it will decrease its performance.

So what i am after is if anyone has noticed this? I am thinking about making a whole in the chassis to help it breath. any other suggestions? I know of people doing this anyone got some pics

Thanks

Aidan

Do any of you guys know how much weight I should add or an estimate to the battery side, if I run the 4.5 brushless system, Futaba 9451, and JR standard servo, plus the motor guard. For batteries Pro Match IB3800's.
I know at least it will be very off balance.

Thanks,
Chris

For the UK version (double-diff), should the front diff sit high or low in the bearing housings?

diff up means more steering, and the bones are at a much better angle, i always run the front up and the rear down

Has anyone figured out what titanium turnbuckles to use with the RDX yet? I seen a Losi Mini-T set that has 33mm turnbuckles but Iím not sure if there the right diameter. Any help on this? On the Lunsford website it shows 4 different diameters and Iím not sure what one I should buy. Thanks
