Jeff,

I just thought...On my outdoor car, I have the new arms on the front and the old arms (with extensions) on the rear. Can you make a setup sheet for that instance?

I ordered a four set of the xray T2 hexes. When measured at the track they were 5 mm thick compared to the corally narrow thickness of 4.5 mm. Test fitted them and they worked awesome. Allowed me to snug them up nicely. Ill let y'all know how it turns out when they come in.

And for those of you who care I also saw that xray makes an offset -.75 mm set of hexes also. I assume these are 4.25 mm thick. Don't know if this matters to anyone but its info nonetheless.

Default Hexs?

Why would you want the wider hexs vs. the standard ones?

Thanks

hmmm... I have 2 cars 1 with old style arms and 1 with new... the old style has 2 shims to make 2 degrees and the new arms only have 1 shim to make 2 degrees. Other people I have talked to have had this same experience

Got tired of the cracked rear narrow hexes on my car, and the lack of interest in anyone finding/making solid hexes, so I made my own. Took a full set of solid hexes I had from YEARS ago, that I ran on my Yok YR-4M, and were about 10mm wide, and machined them down to ~3.78 mm width. Added some thin 5mm axle shims behind the drive pin, and went racing! Since these hexes are even narrower than the narrow RDX hexes, I put a full 3 mm of shims behind the hinge pin mounts. RDX narrow hexes are ~4.15 mm wide, plus the 'lip' on the back that rides on the bearing race.

I am looking at replacing my TC3 with an RDX (used off this forum). My question for you guys, is which kit should I be buying? I run 6 cell stock. I have heard people talking about the 2.9mm chassis is good for stock, but I want to be sure as it's like $100 to replace with the 4mm Carpet Spec chassis!

Is there anything you'd suggest getting for the car for tuning?

The carpet spec kit would be good for you then.

What thickness chassis and top plate come in the Carpet spec car?

The Corally site lists it as 2.9 bottom with a 3.4 top.. is that correct? So the only difference in the 2 cars is the top deck, and the kit gives you a spring set?

The carpet spec comes with a 3.4 mm topdeck, 2.9 mm chassis.

Other differences between the carpet spec and UK spec:

Carpet spec comes with:
x-Hard 75% arms
4 degree caster blocks instead of 2
Silver spring set
