Jeff,

The "2 mil spacers on front arms" is perplexing. Please explain further.

Thanks.

Back to 24 in the rear? Isn't that quite a bit harder than what you were running in the past? Congrats on the win. Have you tried any of the new stuff, like the narrow rear hubs or new top deck? Any reason you didn't use the offset bulkhead? No worries if you can't say without upsetting sponsors. :-)

What kind of BL racing you gonna do? We run the Novak 4300s in our RDXs here locally and have mountains of fun with it.

You should do a setup sheet, man, the page is in need of a fresh carpet setup. It sounds like things have evolved a bit since last year.

Big round of applause to Jeff Cuffs.
I get to see Jeff race his ride almost every week and he's got the RDX in top form. Have to say his skills on the track are outstanding, one of the most tactical racers I've ever watched racing. Thumbs up

Better keep winning or we'll all get George to ask a million and one questions.

Congrats to Cuffs on another victory! I was there running in 19T TC, but didn't do nearly so well IIRC, there were something like 7 RDX's in Stock TC A Main. The track was brutal on parts and, I felt, had a poor flow to the layout. Not to mention the bumps and ripples. I thought it was amusing that the 'fragile' RDX's held up better, breakage wise, than the 'indestructable' X-ray's. :P Even the team Xray guys were wiped out for parts.

Also, for anyone interested in a first hand account of how the new A arms held up, I have a new opinion of them. I've been running the 35% arms front and rear for awhile now. I started out running this way at the Champs, but shattered 2 rear arms in what I considered mild wall hits. I had to switch to the old 75% arms in the rear during qualifiying, so I could actually finish a race. IMO, the 35% front arms are fantastic. They definately hold up better against wall tapping than the old arms. But, the 35% rear arms are junk. They snap like twigs if your wheel catches on any little thing. The new design is beefy only out to where it's boxed for the hub to sit in. Then its too thin, and the 2 pairs of holes for the hinge pins make it weaker. If the wheel catches on somthing, it twists back, and the arm shatters across the hinge pin holes. Corally may also have some injection molding issues as well, that are causing weak spots. I have not tried the 5% or 80% arms yet, so I do not know if they will shatter when twisted as well or not.

yeah went back to the 24 seems to trasition quicker and doesnt lay over on the rear end. Im still running the standard extensions in the rear. I tried the new top deck and steering assemble and for me it gave up to much intial steering going into the corner but gained more coming out. I like the feel of the older top deck. I havent played around with the narrower rear hubs but i know MO has them on his car and likes them alot. It all preference what your driving style likes. As far as BL i been running the new trinity BL motor

My preload collars have gotten hard to turn, and now it's difficult to adjust my preload without unscrewing the caps of the shocks. Is there an easy way to fix this? I'm going to try and get some new rubber rings, but otherwise, I'm stumped. Should I just remote the rubber rings entirely?
