not to impose on fastlane Syndr0me, but why arent they lowering the weight for lip0/4300 class and have better handling cars that are less prone to breaking (due to being 4 oz lighter??) Just curious-not arguing.

or is it due to needing to get corner weights more equal?

I have had an RDX for about a month now and I have never been this impressed with support. And the way CorallyUSA listens to it's customers.

Great job keep it up.

Oh, some of the guys are still running NiMH, so we wanted to make it "fair." I imagine once pretty much everybody is doing LiPo we can convince them to drop that rule.

The 50oz rule at the big races is interesting, I'll bring that up.

The biggest change to 'normal' setups that I witnessed and started using at the Halloween Classic is that alot of people were running Magenta/Double Pink tires front and rear. This worked really good in 19T and Mod, but some really fast people in Stock were also running this tire setup.

Can some help me understand the difference with these parts?

79295 Rear Uprights
79296 Rear Uprights - 2 Deg
79297 Rear Uprights - 2 Deg
79298 Rear Uprights (1 Pc) - Duraluminium NARROW - 0 deg
79299 Rear Uprights (1 Pc) - Dural. 2 HOLE NARROW - 0 deg

Why is one better than the other, etc? I run on asphalt and currently use the 79298 Narrow 0 Deg. Is that right?

Also, 79238 RDX LOWERED Shock Tower (Front/Rear), what does the lowered shock tower do for the car? What needs to be done to run the lowered ones?

Sorry if this is vague, Just trying to learn more about the car, instead of just running it not knowing. Any information will be useful.

Thanks

The lowered shock tower will let you mount your body lower in the front. When I got my car(used) it had already had the front shock shafts cut for the lowered tower so I am not sure how far they need to be cut.

Hope this helps!

The uprights are actually pretty easy to understand.

1) There are the kit ones.
2) 2 deg uprights that put the toe at the upright instead of with shims on the bulkhead.
3) There are narrow ones that help make tech, like a 1mm narrower for an overall of 2mm for your trackwidth.
4) There are new ones that have a 2nd hole for the hingepin. They change how the rear of the car rolls with the hingepin in a wider pivot point. I personally liked these the best for asphalt.

later
