There are special heatsinks you can clamp on your motor with A fan on it, don't know who makes it, and I thought they're quit expensive
You can also mount A fan above the motor, attached to the motormount/chassis, maybe you have to make A bracket for this option.
And if you have space for it, you can mount it in front of the motor, but there is A chance your electronics are already there.
Or you can mount it behind the motor, it looks like you'll have enough space there.

Default Shock Piston Modification

In preparation for my future RDX I am considering doing the piston hole modification to my Assassin shocks since they look to be exactly the same as the RDX shocks.

Anyone know if this is really worth the effort? I've read either adding one 1.3mm hole to the existing delrin piston OR getting the Tamiya 3 hole plastic piston is the ticket.

OR Why can't I just use really thin shock oil? Won't it have the same effect?

I am running the stock pistons on carpet (small hole). If you run outdoors-just buy whats convenient (another set of Corally pistons) or Tamiya pistons. Drill-em only if you have a numbered bit though. I forget the size-but the guys at Corally USA know.

According to guys like Cyrul-thinner oil vs. larger hole can feel exactly the same if you feel them by hand, but they feel different on the track.. I had a Xray before the RDX and at my level-I thought going from say 4-holes to 2-holes was a good set-up chnage and accomplished what it was supposed to.

i think team hurricane's brian koch is pimping an rdx as well. he finished 10th in stock sedan. so that makes it a 40% rdx show. wow.

it is excrutiating to watch the results and wonder... i am glad to see that mo is still running on a ridiculous level.

So what are you saying?? The RDX is the most dialed car on a Roval?? So much for the argument of batterie on left or right-eh?

Thumbs up

no, my comment was no deeper than a statement that the rdx is currently working in stock at the snowbirds.

ciccarello said the grip is like nothing you could imagine. man, i wish i were there just from a tuning standpoint. i think my tc3 gets better and better, relative to the field, as grip comes up. it just doesn't dig like all the others...

Ray,

Here is something I tried last night for 19T and it felt good...

All I did was stand the shocks up one hole on the towers and went one hole shorter on the front camber link...Steered like a 1/12th scaler!!!

It's an easy change, let me know what you think!!

[email protected]

See ya,

Kevin

Default bump steer

Anyone tested changing the bump steer on the RDX? I am thinking lowering the ballstud on the steering knuckle?

If yes-how thick of spacers and what effect did it have?

If I try it-I will post my findings too.

Haven't tested changing the bump steer, but I did test the ackerman. Stock is 30*/24*, and I tried 30/27 last weekend. All I gotta say is, it's much more twitchy around center wheel. I was able to drive much more consistent and faster with the 30/24 setup.

Kevin, you got PM.
