I use corally body posts attached to the rear shock tower to brace the rear of the body on my RRR. Seems to work pretty good. Can't remember that last time the rear tucked on it.

I dont think Corally updates their part #s when they make changes to existing parts. The new chassis requires dremeling as well. They have the slots but they arent cut all the way across. You gotta finish it. I believe that is correct. Take a picture of the bottom of your chassis and Im sure someone can tell you.

Can any please tell me what brands of spur gears fit the adapter for the RDX? I know Kimborough does fit, but what other brands fit? Thanks everyone.

RW and PRS Oval spurs. The Corally ones are quite nice, too.

Hey Brian,

I have some RW gears too, but the mounting holes don't exactly line with the adapter, I'm wondering if I picked up an older spur gear. Do yours line up evenly? Thanks.


Brian

I have a question regarding the installation of a one-way.The directions state a "nub" has to be ground from both bulkheads to install the larger bearing housings.If I grind that nub, does that mean I can't go back to using a front diff and it's smaller bearings? Thanks for any help.

You shouldn't have to grind anything, the only thing you need to run a 1way is the larger bearings and holders for the 1way... that groove fits into both the diff/spool and 1way bearing holders

I bought a shock tower from Corally and was delightfully surprised. I may have just missed others talking about it before, but it looks like there is an updated standard height shocktower. It has more CF around the outer holes to keep them from busting as they do at times. Check the pics. Again, this is NOT the lowered tower but the standard tower. The package I received said PN 79239

Yea Corally for updating and not obsoleting
The older tower is on the top in both pictures.

Yup, those have been in circulation for a while now. They do help quite a bit too.

I have trouble getting my bearings out of the steering knuckles and rear hubs on my RDX. Has anyone tried lightly lubricating the outer edge of the bearing before inserting it into the hub or knuckle to make it easier to remove? Just a thought.

take a lighter to it.... it might let the aluminum expand and be able to tap out the bearing easier.
