Looks like Toso is running the "old" car with the new topdeck at IIC.

I think I'm going to move away from the 4mm chassis as well. For club racing, at least, it seems like too much. The car was twitchy as hell with the 4mm compared to the 2.9. It felt a lot more tame and drivable with a tiny bit of flex in there.

If you bought it new, you have to lube it. The manual suggests that you use the diff lube, but alot of fellow users here prefer Associated black grease to lube the thrust bearing.

The two washers on either side of the thrust bearing are not the same. One has a small diameter in the center hole relative to the other. The instructions dont show this unfortunately. The smaller ones goes to the side with the diff screw head.

Heh, why would I want LESS steering by using the new steering post? I just started using Parma Indigo tires to get MORE steering with less dual rate.

Default Build Question - Front Diff

I have a strange issue that raises two questions.

After getting the car built, I noticed that something had changed once all of the chassis and bumper bits were screwed on. The front diff has a nasty wobble in it. I have rebuilt it a few times (and it has never been run). The wobble is bad enough that the belt chatters since the teeth are catching the side.

The docs are a little sparse when it comes to the front diff (unless I complete missing something):

1. Is the long half supposed to be on the left or right side?
2. Has anyone else had a problem with a wobble - if so, did you manage to fix it and how?

-Rich

When we run in the wet in the UK we use thin Pit wets on 21mm wheels with the standard foam insert. I run my RDX with the same setup as i do in the dry and it is very good, If it is really wet try increasing the ride height a little to cut down on drag from the standing water.
