With the SRC bumper, the car is a tank. I haven't broken an arm in a couple of months, but they can be somewhat fragile. The new ones seem to be a lot more durable.

Also, get the aluminum steering knuckles, and you're golden.

There should be a slot (older plate) or some holes (newer plate) further in on the rear body post plate. Just relocate the posts to those positions and it'll all line up.

Few questions

I just picked up a used RDX yesterday, it has silver and black springs on it. Is there any way I can figure out wich rate they are?
Wire dia, number of coils?

How should I gear it with a CO27, and a Orion Element based 19t with laydown brushes.
Tires are 2.30" and has a 64p 108 spur.
The tracks straight is about 80ft, infield always changes, usually has decent flow.

Thanks
Dayton

You have to put the post to the inside of your bodypost plate!

The number of coils on the springs is how you figure out which is which. When I get home form work I'll go look at my spring chart and post it here. For the c027... gear it about 1-2 teeth bigger on the pinion than a monster stock. The orion element you can go about 1-2 lower on pinion than a reedy quad mag. It's been a while since I've ran that motor.

Thanks Sushi,
I'm new to the RDX so I'm not even sure where to gear a monster.

Thanks

Start that CO27 at a 32 tooth, possibly a 33 tooth. Go up about 2-3 teeth from that for the Element.

Need some help please.

I'm just building my twin diff RDX kit and in the instructions it shows there is a difference between the front and rear diff bearing support inserts but mine look all the same. Is this correct? If it is do I set the front diff for high or low?

Thanks

The different front one is for a one-way. Dual diff will both be the same. I run mine with the diff down.

The manual shows you how to put a one-way in the front if you drive a diff in the front you just have to do it like the rear diff!

Both diffs should be low. If you raise one of them, it will take away traction from that end.
