Default rubber vs foam

I have an RDX already set up for foam racing but I'm worried about showing up to race and there not being a foam class. What would be the changes I would need to make to my foam setup to make it rubber worthy? I would also have to make these changes at the track 10 minutes before racing starts because I was just told there is no foam class.

Parts:
One way
Shocks - I have an extra set of Tamiya shocks I can dedicate to rubber
Tires - of course
Anything else??

Setup:
What changes from my foam setup??

Or should I just buy a whole new car? $$$$$

When you say outward. Do you mean outward toward my snapring pliers or outword toward the outside of the diff assembly (like toward the dogbone).

I'm pretty sure he meant outward as in toward the rest of the diff (or toward your pliers ), becasue that would be 'out' when your putting it together, (the reason I believe is if the beveled side is 'out' it will be more likely to bend and it'll be a pain to get out the next time you build it)

New Front Arms
- Outside Hole is the same as the old arms with the short extension installed
- Inside Hole is the same as the old arms outside hole

New Rear Arms
- Inside Hole is the old arms outside hole
- Middle Hole is the old arms Short Extension
- Outside Hole is the old arms with SRC X-Long Extensions

Hopefully that makes sense!!

Almost, but the extension was never used on the front arms. Unless you mean the spacer to move the shock out away from the arm, but that made foam tires hit too much, so is never really used.

Yes I know, SeaBall had commented if he had only put front arms all the way around.

Just use the "old" arms that are the same at all 4 corners. With the src bumper I haven't broken an arm in a long time. And I aint no A main driver. I plan on using them till I can't get them any more.

AB Charles & Son, Speedtech RC, Stormer Hobbies, Superior Hobbies..........

Speedtech has gotten bigger so they move quickly, same with Stormer. AB Charles usually has a great selection, as with Superior.

Jeff Brown, Korey etc.

Are you guys running the long ball stud on the steering knuckles on asphalt with the standard roll center blocks?

Or is this change for the ultra low roll blocks only?

Thanks
