Any responses on my questions regarding a review of the new arms?

If you're not having problems with the old arms breaking, I'd stick with them. They're the same on all 4 corners, as you said, and work great when they're not in little pieces on the track. The new arms are stronger, but not indestructible. You'll require different mounting hardware for sway bars. The new rear arms give you the outside mounting holes and remove the need for the extensions, or the xlong extensions. You can run the "xlong" position without buying the SRC extensions if that's your thing. I've been doing it that way for a few weeks now with good results.

Like syndrome said, if you're not having problems with the old arms I would stay with them. I like them not only because of the same on all 4 corners issue, but they do weigh less, which depending on driver skill and preference can make a difference. Also, when I ran the new arms , instead of breaking them, I would just slightly bend the hinge pin instead, and that's no fun either.

No, It doesn't look like I'll make it this time. I had a blast though racing last month at NorCal Raceway. Tony tells me carpet is opening over Thanksgiving weekend. Can't wait to check it out. Let me know when you guys hold a big race. Later, Wally

Would any of you guys be so kind as to post the inner and outer diameters of the thrust bearing washers and the thickness of the thrust bearing assembly in the RDX diffs?

Thanks

I don't have them in front of me to measure, but the thrust washers are different. You'll actually need separate measurements for each washer.

The favicon (the little icon that shows up in your browser next to a URL) for Corally International's page has been updated to the "PHI" symbol. I guess the PHI can't be too far off.

Can anyone tell me what page of this thread I can find good carpet foam set up sheets on?

Hey Syndrome if it would be alright, I would like to peep out your car a bit when I get my RDX in next week. You could save me weeks in set up.

I bounce between Dayger and McGreevy's setup. I like Cuffs', too. I run my rear springs a little harder than those guys seem to, but otherwise it's real close. You should be able to duplicate my setup pretty easy with the stuff you're getting, and you'll find it's very close to what the "pro's" are using. I think the car works really well on our track when I'm not making ridiculous decisions like I did with my tires in the main, so if nothing else, we can get you close to something that works and let you branch out from there.

I dont know about you syndrome, maybe you should re-check your thrust bearings, I know mine use the same washer on both sides, and thats how Corally designed them.

I will get you a measurement later on today.

There may be some discrepancies in thrust washer measurement. lol

I dunno what calipers you are using, but mine, syndrome's, EA's, Jeff's, Rob's, and L. Fairtrace's are the same. you should recheck your set.

I think they're different in XRay cars too. But, yea, they're definitely not the same size. Open a new pack and look closely.

I run a RDX, but I wanted some other peoples opinions on something that doesn't directly have to do with the car. I am in the market for a new ESC. I either want to get a Keyence Rapida Pro, or wait and get a new Tekin FX Pro when they come out. Any suggestions?

The Rapida Pro has a huge footprint compared to other ESC's available, you have to remember with the Rapida, the programming buttons are on the long side of the ESC, you'll need to leave room for your fingers to access the controls. Especially when you attempt to mount the ESC in between the servo and motor, there's not a whole lot of room when a larger receiver is used there, or you can place the receiver on top of the servo.
