Quick question? On setting droop, using Jason E set up for IIC droop is said to be at7mm, but reading in this thread someone said they are setting the up travel/ which way do I does this? I'm have a 7mm block and was going too set the tires where they just started too come off the ground is this an ok way? or set the arms at 7mm with droop gauge?

It was 7mm on a droop guage (yes, barely any uptravel at all)... with the slightly lower overall traction this year it was between 6 and 5. Hope this helps

This question is for anyone who has the new topdeck with centerpoint steering. Have you noticed a difference in corner speed and tire wear?

Overall it just felt like the car wanted to keep turning around the apex whereas previously it would wash out and understeer across the apex until extra speed was scrubbed off.
You could try checking the thread before asking.

Default Basic Carpet Setup

Advice please - After many years I am just switching from low grip asphalt to carpet - What is the best basic setup for the RDX.

Diff - Ball, One way or Spool?
Shocks - Pistons and oil?
Springs -
Roll Bars -
Camber -
Roll centres -

I knows there are some setups posted on the Corally sites but they are for the top drivers and they vary, I would just like a starting point.

Thanks

Honestly any of the posted setups ARE a good starting point for carpet. But just to be clear

60 F 40R oil Associated
Ball diff at both ends
no roll bars
lowest roll block positions
1.5* camber alll the way around

The only thing that might vary is the springs and thats just becasue of differtent arms and different length rear shock extensions. Fronts are almost aslways 33 lbs. Rears vary betwen 19 and 26 depending on the above. : )

For rubber tires:
Diff - One way
Shocks - 1.1 pistons, 50 front/30 rear
Springs - 22 front/17 rear
Roll Bars - front, but only if there's a ton of grip
Camber - 1 deg
Roll centres - std blocks in low position (hole down)

For foamies dual diff and way stiffer springs are the norm... but I'll let someone who's run it more than 2wice clue you in here

hope this helps

I had a bad bearing in my rear hub. So I took it all apart and the bearing fell out as I removed the CVD. All of it that is EXCEPT the outer race which remained STUCK in the rear upright. I have already tried the obvious "push it out" but the thickness of the race is still thinner than the machined lip in the upright. I can't get a dremel in there without cutting up the hub pretty bad. A picture's worth a thousand words as they say . . .

Any ideas on how to remove it?

hey andrew... you might try heating it up. the alum will expand faster and larger than the steel, maybe giving you enough room to get it out w/o damage...

im still looking for that setup i had, just havent found it yet!

Andrew dont heat it up . If you have the corally tool set,,,, one of the nut drivers will fit right in that rear hub with the bearings outer piece stuck in it. Push the nut driver in there and give it a nice twist and then pull it out and out she will come.

I had thought of that Wes . . .any idea whether it will weaken the aluminum? Just LMK when you come up with the set-up. I'm up a creek till I can get some help. It was like driving on ice . . I think it must be the carpet at Mikes because by all accounts the setups posted on the Corally site ought to get me in the ball park.

i wouldnt think it needs to get that hot to achieve the goal... Wallstreets idea might work as well, if the bearing race isnt too tight a fit in the hub. some are, some arent.

something that just came to mind on your setup... are you running the ultra low roll blocks, or the std ones?

I had the same thing happen. I was able to tap it out from the backside by getting a flathead screwdriver in there and slowly and carefully banging away at it.
