I believe 3mm off the threaded end of the shock shaft and 3mm off the eyelet will get it done. That's what most guys do, though there's been some argument about how much is actually necessary. Maybe someone will come up with a formula.

Alright, there's some confusion about rear hubs. Can someone clear this up for me? Currently, the site lists:

79298 RDX Rear Uprights (1 Pc) - Duraluminium NARROW - 0 deg
79299 RDX Rear Uprights (1 Pc) - Dural. 2 HOLE NARROW - 0 deg

Is 79298 intended for use with the original arms, and 79299 for the updated arms? Since 79299 has two holes, does it supersede 79298 with the ability to work with both new and old arms? Anybody? This is pretty confusing. Corally? Hello? Is this thing on?

Both narrow hubs require standard hexes to make legal width, right?

The newer hub carriers are available so you can use the outer hole on the new rear arms and still maintain the same width. Generally when you use this sort of setup it makes the car more stable over the stock configuration.

The older narrow hub carriers are specifically for the people that run a lot of rear toe in (3 deg) and still maintain a legal width. The older narrow hub carriers with std hex is the same as having the normal hubs with narrow hex's.

That makes sense. Are the newer narrow carriers (79299) usable with the old arms if you use the outer hole, or are they specifically for the new, mythical arms?

Well the old arms don't have the hole the new arms have. Ifd you look at the pictures of the newer arms they have 2 different sets of holes where the outer hinge pin goes.

The inside hole on the newer arms is the same as the stock arms, and maintains the same geometry. Therefore you can use the stock hub carrier and the older Narrow one as well.

The outer location on the new arms is specifically designed with the newer narrow rear hub carriers in mind, and the newer narrow rear hub carriers are only going to work with the newer rear arms.

So newer narrow rear hubs mounted in the outer hole of the new rear arms will require the narow hexes to maintain roar width?

Just saw this pop up this morning. Interesting. Might induce tweak ala T2 though.

If there's not a tweak problem, at least we know it can be done. I wonder if it'll be available on May 1st?

Actually, quite the opposite.

The new 2-hole narrow uprights will narrow up the rear end of the car. Yes, even when used in the outermost hole in the new arms. It's very obvious due to the fact you have to shorten up your rear camber link when you use them.

When I put them on my car, my foam tire wheels would hit the shock ends, even with the wide hexes. I run my shocks in the new outermost shock mounting hole in the new arms (same as the extra long extension for the old arms).

With rubber tires, however, it shouldn't be a problem.

Hi all.
Been on RC tech for a long time but switched from Losi ( Street Weapon, then XXX-S, then XXX-S G+, then JRX-S) to the RDX so i thought id best have a name change on the forum - formerly losi_g+ . Probably the best move i ever made switching to the Corally . I never got on with the JRX-S i just couldnt get it to work for me, no matter what i tried . Anyhow ive had the corally for 6 months but only got to start racing again 3 weeks ago after graduating from uni but it handles so well straight from the box. Only got to do club meetings with it at the moment but will be doing BRCA nationals next year as well as GTCC carpet grand prix winter series.
I had thought about trying a TRF415 MSX on carpet too, obviously will keep the Corally, what does everyone think? Anyway enough of the introductions, looking forward to getting to know the RDX regulars.
Laters!
Jay

Ditto...Just call me Still Bill.

About the TRF415...Think the RDX is better on carpet than asphalt. I have two of em.

Are these the expensive hex someone (harsh maybe?) was talking about a few pages back? How have they held up? I don't mind the expense if they don't break like the corally ones. Anyfeedback on thier durability?
