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.
Some slop could come into play with BENT hinge pins..Check your hinge pins , do it now...lol...

Corally International has news of improved wheel hexes that are being released. Once again, I could swear they monitor this thread, as whining about the wheel hexes was pretty strong a few months ago. They say "improved design" and they look to be kind of silvery now, rather than black. Hopefully they won't bind against the hubs as easily, and they look like they're more durable.

Also, for what it's worth, Simo Ahoniemi won the Orion Cup with the prototype RDX, so apparently it's a capable car in the right hands. He's still putting RDX stickers on the body... not sure if that gives us any hint about the name of the updated car.

I took out the two top screws and ran today. Two broken arms (I hate that sweeper) but the bumper plate survived. The car felt better also. I think you're on to something here, Jason.

These are already released and a running change. We have them in stock and have had them for months. I just think they brought the image back to the front page to remind people.

That's cool about the hexes being a running change. I'm surprised they haven't mentioned some of the other changes, like the extra "meat" on the shock towers, presumably to help keep them from breaking so easily. Do the updated hexes bind less easily, or are they just tougher? The binding isn't a big deal, but it's something I catch once in a while. There's a fine art to tightening the wheels just enough.
