As far as I know the chassis needs to be milled out for the offset motor mount. It is a pretty easy task with a dremel - it took me all of 30 minutes at the most. All I did was mount screw in the motor mount where it sits, i then took an exacto and scoured the graphite where I needed to cut it out, I then took the multipurpose dremel cutting kit:



and then just dremeled it out to get the right fit. Hope this helps

In other words-if you are to dial a set-up in thats flat planted and can even be driven aggresively and rear remains planted that that set-up is inherently slow? I think I am going to start with Ertracters (sp?) IIC set-up.

I need to know these things since I have NO ONE to practice against on rubber tires till the Halloween Classic practice starts. IN the meantime I'll try around 1 to 2 seconds off the foam tire stock laptimes-depending on whos setting the laptimes (ie. Goetz or Hermmann).

Not sure about your 'fast = spin out' theory, but that is definately the setup to run for carpet rubber and it in no way will ever spin out. You can drive it as hard into the corner as you wish and it just grips and hugs the line. Can't argue with back to back IIC wins

So I have an RDX now on the way to try.
Dodgeguy...I have some great foam setups if you need. I spent about a year and a half on different setups for the RDX and came up with some really good ones. I'll be working on them again this weekend

What kind of tuning tricks did you guys do at the IIC to overcome the low traction? Any specific changes that yielded good results? It might be useful information that we could apply at the club level since our traction never gets as intense as the big races where most of the "pro" setups are born.

Heh, I feel like I'm following you around from thread to thread.

Thanks for the info. I'm surprised you guys didn't have to change more for the low traction, especially on rubber tires.

My web browser is either not working right or I'm an idiot, both of which could be true. Would someone post a link to the online manual for the RDX.

Thanks Andy

For those of you that measure uptravel, how hard to you pull up on the suspension when you take your measurement? You can pull up gently until the suspension stops working and measure there, but if you pull just a little harder, you can get almost another 2mm. I don't mean REALLY hard or anything.
