I guess I'll take a couple of screws out. I was looking for a way to shed some weight anyway. Thanks Jason.

Default Tweaked

Hey guys, I took a few good hits a few club races ago, enough that the battery was shoved inward and broke apart. I deceided to take the car apart tongiht and check everything out.

Both front bulkheads, rear shock tower mount, the offset motor mount bulkhead and chassis appear to be warped. I checked them using a piece of glass and rocked them back and forth. Cant really see the warp by eye except for the chassis.

Is this normal? I know they are supposed to be straight but are there tolerances for them?

Alot of money to replace the parts and I perfer not to, however I dont want this to effect the car. My driving is bad enough as it is.

Thanks

Hey Guys,

I updated the RDX parts list for shopping on the website. We will have the new 5% arms and 80% in stock next week. I added some other new items so you can check them out RIGHT HERE.

I will post images of new items as well, such as the new shock mounts and swaybar mounts.

Jeff

Default advice

hey a bit of friendly advice needed.

I'm using the dura arms in the front and back.
It seems to pick up a bit of slop after a few runs.
Is there anything that can be to minimize this? I don't see too much of a difference in handling although it does get a little twitchy at times at full speed.
Thanks

Well with all the guys switching to X-ray this thread needs a bump..I love the car ,great support why would any body switch..Just because Corally wont bring out a new car every six months guys are switching left and right ..You can thank Tamiya and X-ray for that, we are losing guys to the NEW cars due to the mind set from Tamiya more cars more money..Hang in there guys summer is coming..

Shim the arms with motor shims...Gold motor shims should take up the slack.
.10 thickness.

LOL....just like with the last X creation a bunch of guys will defect over....but give it a few months...and they will be back....
If you see in thread the other thread...tolerence defects may already be appearing as expected of course.

This car has been going for 2 years now...with an ever increasing people adopting it as the weapon of choice.

Look thru the thread a good portion of people who buy another brand usually come back to the R group.

thanks ..will try to shim it out....just hoping the arms aren't warping the hinge pins in some way.
