Rob, if you're running close to my setup from the Novak, run the long extensions if you can get them, and if not, standard extensions with 24 lb springs.

Should have mentioned I ran 24 lb springs, Koch wised me up to the extension thing. I just took the reg. ones off to see what would happen.

On ThisLink when you scroll down , there are some new arms for the car that eliminate the need for the extensions.

One thing I've been playing with lately is congo springs with standard extensions (purple/blue). So far it's really, really good. I would like to go back to my normal setup (33/22 w/ long extensions) and do a direct comparison.

Yes, Slotmachine, I know about the new arms. I'm a team driver but even I don't have them yet. Need to make an order...

Many people don't have them yet, so for those that don't, the extensions are a tuning option we use.

Default rdx

hello guys,
just got my hands on another rdx...i had a carpet spec car before and loved it.i got rid of it and kick myself for doing so......i had to get another one.
only prob with that is i didnt write the set-up down.was wondering if somebody could give me a good set-up to start out with.i know the car i had before had black springs on the back and silver on the front.when pushing down on the car it felt stiffer in the back than the front.the rdx i have now i think is the uk version.it has the thick top deck/thinner chassi...the car has dual diffs like my other one did...i just do not remember what the camber links were and so forth...if somebody could give a me a good starting point i would appreciate that much.....

thanks much guys,

matt

Use any one of the carpet/foam setups from this January on. Dayger's, Langlois', mine, Herrmann's, and Lutz's setups are all really fast.

I have 3 different revisions of the 2.9mm chassis. The original one (can't take 3700's), one for 3700's I got on the used car that I had to replace because the battery strap posts holes were cracked, and then the new one I just ordered. Lots of little differences between them.

The rear battery strap post hole is drilled a little further out so it's easy to tighten down the strap without the topdeck getting in the way. Also, there's a new hole drilled immediately in front of the forward most hole for the right rear bulkhead. Any idea what that's for?

I believe it's for if you want to put another motor mount/bulkhead on that side, cut away the motor mounting part so the battery can fit, This makes the rear top deck mounts in line with each other. You have to cut up an assasin top deck to make it work though. It makes the chassi flex equally on both sides. Kind of like a MSX or a T2 or a Cyclone.

Yea man, but I couldn't make it look as nice as yours. That GTB is so large it has its own gravitational field. The other electronics are just in orbit around it. :-(

Oh yea, I've seen some pictures of that. I didn't realize people were actually doing it though. Good to know it's a supported option. I LOVE the new location of the battery strap standoff. No more fighting between the strap and the top deck.

Yeah I know what you mean. Even though the Sphere has a slightly bigger footprint it just seems easier to fit. I guess b/c of the smaller cap and lack of a fan.

The Sphere or matrix are really small if you compare them to an other brushless ESC! So they are really good bild! But Orion is building some New brushless systems thats gonna be smaller than de QC3 or Razor its really gonna be amasing! Know this from Oscar Jansens! Now they use the brushless system of GM with a sticker of Orion on it!
