has anyone tried running the camber links with the small ball end like in Jeff's ride? does it provide more camber gain or something? also is he running toe out inboard? does it create less ackerman or something? i hope he (Jeff) posts the winning set-up (please)!

Nah the short ball studs do nothing for camber gain. They just put less stress on the shock tower, thus lessening the chance that the tower breaks at the camber link mounts. I know, because I run with Cuffs weekly and I've done the same thing.

Any suggestions or even tried set ups for rubber tires on low bite carpet?

We've heard nothing official, only seen pictures of the prototype car they're testing overseas. We haven't even heard if that design has been approved for production. It uses a LOT of the RDX parts, though, which is nice. I imagine it'll be a while still before there's anything we can buy.

Jeff Cuffs just took his RDX to the win (in stock) in Cleveland against a bunch of fancy new T2'007s, along with a few other guys using the RDX. The car is still dialed, and just as effective on carpet as anything the competition has served up the last couple of years.

I just recieved my RDX in the mail yesterday and was very impressed with all the updates and goodies it seems to have.

I do need some body post nuts though , somehow they didn't make it in the box . I really am not a big fan of the stock method of body mounts. I see in some other RDX photos there are some larger padded body mounts available other than these little plastic nut thingys and I'd like to find a set.

What do you guys preffer and where do I find them?

It also came with a servo already installed. It's an Airtronics 94157, I've never been a fan of Airtronics but would this servo be better than the Futaba 9351 I currently use?

One last question. There seems to be a ticking coming from the rear wheel hubs when I have the wheels off and I pull the belt to make the wheels go round. It doesn't happen at all when the wheels are on ...is this normal?

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knows the part# for the new shock mounting posts that eliminates the need to secure the shock to the tower using a nut.

Don't know about a shock mounting post, but the have threaded balls that eliminate the need for the nuts.

Like most manufacturers is Corally also continously trying to improve and develop the ultimate car.

The parts used in the prototype seen on the pics are indeed not (yet) approved for production.
A lot of detail and finetuning and testing is still very much going on.

It has allready been said before, the current RDX can tangle with the best.

Congrats to Cuffs on the win. Too bad Ellis (T2'007) couldn't manage to put his TQ in stock to use and win the main.

This is an important point. At Cleveland, I had my thrust washers backwards, and during the resulting profane tirade in my room, I may have invented several new oaths. Once Jeff Brown cleared this all up for me, my diffs were buttery smooth once again, and the earmuffs came off of the small children.

The thrusts are 2 different sizes. The big hole goes on top if i remember right.

Thanks Jeff...

Any time.......

Yes, the thrust washers are different sizes.

This is the second straight race that we proved that this car is still very capable of winning. I won the Halloween classic and the US indoor champs against some of the highest competition this country has to offer. The car was very good at both races and hasnt let me down yet. I did run the new Tekin R1 speedo at cleveland and it ran very well. Ill be testing it in brushless mode this weekend.

As far as setup here u go. 60/40 trinity oil, 1.3 pistons, 33/24 springs, short down front link short up rear link. standard extensions in the rear. 1 degree rear toe. 4 degrees castor. second hole in in both towers. 2mil spacers on front arms


As kyle said i runn the short ballstuds on the front to reduce the breakage of towers. So far so good and it helps a ton. No performance gains by doing this.

Just want to thank robbie, jeff and the whole corally crew. We work together well at the track and it shows. Vegas was the first carpet race we lost in stock since snowbirds 2 years ago. That tells you alot about this car and the team.
