Default Diffs

No problem Armed. No racing for me this past weekend; so, I am going through my asphalt car now. Finally added the ceramic thrust bearings and my diffs are killer...Now!

One other thing that I seen on Aaron Young's RDX diffs are stick-on rings (donuts) of contact paper that help keep the dirt out of the diffs. Very cool move; but, I expect that of Aaron. Every tip AY gives me is pure gold.

i still half to give props to corally the rdx is the most effiecient car to buy in my eyes. I bought the rdx carpet spec only ran it 3 times but still its very stable great take off good high speed handle. The only problem i have is that i only run oval carpet so it was a little harder to make it like the left hand turns with the batt on the right side but i got it taken care of with puting 50wt shock oil in the car after that it was a little camber change and this thing was a rocket. Great job guys keep it up... Now im lookin for a car for asphault might be another rdx on the way..

what makes the rdx so good.... the quality of the car its percision... i mean dont get me wrong i was not happy with mine till the last time i took it out... i was super pissed because the car felt to good through the corners and that usually means your tight and not tight pushing just tight and slow. i finally figured out y and got it to fly.

Now i got a question for the rdx kings in hear. i need to know what i need to change on the carpet spec to make this thing a front runner in asphault or do i need to buy a new rdx just for that?

also i have 200 bucks im going to spend for parts on my rdx what all should i get...

im thinkin a full shock kit. and some arms but what else

Looking for some help . . .
My local track has slowed this summer so traction is not like it used to be during the "season" Typical lap times earlier this year when traction was higher were in the low 13's/high 12's. The track now leaves my car pretty dusty after a run and there is an obvious reduction in traction. Last week's race I was able to get my lap times down to around 14.4 seconds. I went back up to practice today and mess with some changes. Due to the loss of traction I have been unable to get the on power steering I would like. So just for grins I decided to sauce all the way across each front tire. Viola! My lap times dropped instantly to 14.0 until the sauce wears off and I start having to lift throttle to get the car to turn in. Any suggestions to gain more steering without saucing the whole fronts? I have my steering turned to 100% already and have set my epa's to take advantage of all the steering travel I can with out hitting the lower shock collars.

Yeah. I notice that too. And he use Associated springs and new Corally delrin spool. New chassis and upperdeck also.

How he made that servo turnaround thing?
