Just use the Team Corally Fan Set! Thats cools the collector and thats where the motor heats up!

Seriously now . . .

I bought my RDX used and when I was rebuilding the diff I noticed I had 6 cone washers installed on the diff screw rather than the four the manual calls for. Is there any reason I should know about to rebuild it with six rather than four!

Default New Chassis for the RDX

At the worlds there was a new chassis on sight .

There are rumours that it should be released soon with a new car (with bulkheads that allow the diff easy removal )

scroll till you find it.

cheers

About a year ago, there was a lot of talk about using 6 washers instead of 4, allowing for finer diff adjustments. I haven't heard much about it in a long time though, so I think maybe people went back to using 4? It's deep in this thread somewhere, but there was a lot of discussion about it at one point.

Default Sorex Tires versus TakeOff

Hi all,

I am having one important race in a big track with medium to low grip .
Air Temperature will be 21C or 81F.

Since any rubber tire/insert/rim combination is allowed and no limit for the number of tires used - is a total new situation for me , used to run TakeOff C27 limited to 2 sets per race (mandatory tire).

I will be thankfull for any advice base on experience about how to get the best of this conditions, like which tire/insert can be the best
and
If is wise to use one tire set for each run (4 qualifying and 3 finals).

thanks in advance

Pedro

Hi,

I know this issue very well....

If the diff screw (the long one) is threaded all the way YOU SHOULD USE 6 new washers.
If the diff screw is one of the new generation and has close to the head a no threaded part, then you can use the 4 or 5 washers like I do.
Be aware, the washers get flat with time and have to be changed

Very interesting indeed. Anybody care to enlighten us? :-) I don't see anything about new bulkheads on the page, but it looks like there's something to allow more dynamic stiffening of the chassis. New bulkheads though, if you're right, would be a wonderful update.

Some of the translated text:

"The new RDX in assay in this test of the World-wide one for the official pilots."

"The RDX of Chris Tossolini already with the specifications of the new model."

"Paul Constant, master of the Corally, offered to all Corally pilots the new chassis of next 2 RDX composition to 2 parts for the base."

"The chassis with 2mm of thickness can thus be rigidificado with triangulo now placed of 2,4mm in the front, becoming it reactivo."

Doesn't look like new bulkheads in the picture. Just looks like he has the SRC offset LR BH . . . However, notice the belt tensioner just behind the spur? Doesn't seem like the rear belt would be the one you would worry about. Pretty trick idea though.

Well its the Corally fan set that broke. I was just looking for alternatives. I found if something breaks once for me it is likely to happen again and the Corally stuff isnt exactly the cheapest.

In their defense, there's been plenty of occasions where we found out stuff on the Internet or from corally.com before Corally USA knew about it. I'm sure they answered your question honestly, and in good faith given what they currently know.
