Spools are better for tight tracks were a lot of braking is used. One-ways are generally used on more open tracks were little braking is used, since one-ways are very unstable under braking.

Corally does make a spool but one 5min driving you have to change the blades(driveshaft caps) because they are broken! But the corally spool is the best for the RDX i had the White prototype Delrin spool from corally but that was good to only for a high speed track with lots of braking! The Duraluminium Spool for the RDX is good for both!

Thats why you get some of the super cool Specialized R/C steel blades and special bones for the steel blades. They last a lot longer.

What are you guys doing to get your ride height to 5mm with rubber tires? I can't seem to get it much below 6.

I usually back off on the shock collars. Its crazy I know, but try it. LOL.

Make sure you reset the droop. I have never had a problem with 5mm ride height or less on Rubber tire. I've been down as low as 3mm I think before setting the collars.

Just get yourself some associated tc4 spring "perches" and your golden ,you'll never have issue's with getting the ride height down again (part number 6475).

Hope that helps

Geez, tough crowd!

The preload is backed off all the way, and I backed out the droop screws, and I filled the car with all the electronics and everything that's in there when I drive. The shocks are all the same length, and I believe I have the shock ends on as tight as they can go without pushing the thread into the eyelet. The spring perches seem to be pushed all the way down on the ball ends.

Still, the best I can do (with CS27's) is about 5.5 or 6mm. Now I'm worried that something is wrong, you guys made it seem like an absurd question. :-D The rubber car is built from spare parts, so maybe something is awry. I'm going to build up one with all the good parts (we're done with foam for a while I guess) and then I'll see where I'm at. Nobody runs the lowered shock towers with rubber, right? No weird spacers or anything in the shocks that I should know about?

3mm?! Wow, something must really be wrong then. One end was at 5.5 and one was at 6 with the preload backed all the way off, and droop screws backed out. I set them both at 6 for now, but I guess I need to figure out what's wrong. I -just- rebuilt the shocks a few days ago, too.
