I just measure it up to where the suspension stops - i don't force it to go any higher than when it first "stops"

Hey, Yes, this measuremeant can very alot, What I do is put my car on the setup board, raise the car and make sure i push on the wheels to get the maximum travel, you dont push hard, just push so its actually on the droop screw, i'd then measure it... i think the harder measuremeant is what to measure. Not a matter of how hard you push or pull, as you need to have the wisbone fully extended (touching the screw or your not measuring what you need to be) the harder thing is, if somone said set it to 7mm. So you grab your ride height gauge and put the car up on 7, but where do you want your wheels at 7? full traction? planted on the board, just hovering on the board, or with a tiny air gap... I generally pull the wheels off the board completly with the screw, and then lower them down, until I feel the tyres are moderetly on the board, a tiny bit after when they first touch.

Okay, did you use the "original" setup that was used when you put the chassis together? What surface are you running on? What tires are you running on? You're going to have to be a little more specific in order for us to give you a hand.

I don't think you need to be that harsh Sherman, probably having a bad day or something. Almost everyone here is to learn about things, aren't they here for adjustment help then they are here for the new findings and such.

@ COREX
You should just ask at the track were you are going to plan to race.
There are plenty of people out there that are willing to help you. Don't worry if there aren't people running a RDX, there are some important common things that (almost) everyone is running, like tires for example.
And you can always check out the setup section on the corally site.
Just take a look at them and see if there are things that are the same and compare them.
If you would like to know more about those adjustments you could indeed take a look in the manual which explains it quite well.

I just started with TC's, I have always raced with F1's and 1/12th's so I can't really give you specfic tips..... yet!

Just a couple of suggestions:

If it is too sensitive around center when you are steering you can:

1) Turn down your dual rate in your radio
2) Turn down the steering exponential in your radio.

These only apply if you car is handling well overall and is just a little too sensitive for your taste.

Good Luck

I believe you are the dumb one, what grammar is that "you can't even know how to set up your car,"
anybody know what his problem is? sounds like you are a HillBilly from Cambodia.

Anyway thanks for the input guys, I'm going to try some adjustment today and let you guys know the result, please be honest with me, is this car suitable for Asphalt racing? or is it only good for carpet racing?

Take a look at the results.
It won a lot off national titles around the world and most off them are raced on asphalt, but for as far as I know the RDX is raced more on carpet in the states, so that's why you read a lot about that in here.

Some people dont have a track that is perminent that they can get practice/setup time on, so they post on forums like these in an effort to shortcut their issues due to the small amount of the they get at the track, think about things before you post them.
