Are the 1.1 pistons supposed to basically be the same as the Tamiya 3 hole?

Finally learning how to properly build shocks has made a world of difference with the car. It's especially noticeable in that the car is much more responsive to other setup changes when the suspension is working at its best. I guess it's a no-brainer, but the last couple of weeks have been great. I'm still getting beat, but it's closer, and the car looks great on the track. I just need to man up and pull the trigger sooner, and stop being so cautious.

Default Basic Carpet Setup

Quote:
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
Thanks for the tips - but as you can see they are quite diverse. What I forgot to mention is that I will be racing on rubber tyres.

One of the main reasons for asking, is whether I should go out and buy, a one way diff, and also whether the new suspension arms are recommended.

What ackerman setting is everyone using with the new center point steering setup?

Also what are most of you guys running for uptravel (droop)? I have been staying around 2mm of uptravel front and rear (measuring from ride height until the wheels start to lift up from the surface). Also this is for foams on carpet

New suspension arms wont hurt-but they arent necessary. Also-this set-up that Big Rig is reffering to is SO EASy to drive with a one-way that its a no brainer to use it. What I mean is some cars with one-ways on carpet/rubber are evil to drive. The RDX is not.

Some of it splits to the right, some of it splits to the left.

Corally's site has been updated with information on a new chassis,and a new chassis stiffening option. These are the things we saw in some pictures from the Worlds a few months ago. The chassis looks a whole lot like the one from the updated RDX picture.

Seems that way. Does that mean we're currently driving the "Noncompetitive Spec?" So sad.
