I'll be working on setups from the race. I have a couple from drivers and need some more and will work on getting them up. Yeah, there have been a few setup changes.

I checked the threads on all of them, and they don't seem to be cross-threaded. They're not locked down, just much tighter than they used to be, and tend to unscrew the shock body from the cap if I'm not real careful. I cleaned the threads and the collars, and even tried oiling the rings inside them, and they're still tight. My car is about two years old now, too.

Maybe the rubber rings have dried out? Or maybe I got motor cleaner on them and made them swell? I dunno, weird stuff. I guess I could cut the rings out of them and see if they're any easier. Does wax work as a thread lube?

The rings seem to be sold as a separate part, but I don't know if they're still offered, the Corally store says the part is no longer available. I couldn't find an option to buy just the collars. I don't wanna buy new shocks! :-D

Cool, thanks Jeff. We've got a few locals buying up used RDX's (best deal in town) and switching from their T2's and T2R's. A lot of them are coming with new parts, and they're asking about setups.

Is anyone experiencing the pins getting lose enough to were the universals is locked up? My right fronts seems to be the only problem. I've replaced the pin and setscrew and locktight but still manages to slip every two to four races.

rcgen-You can try grinding a small notch on the pin where the setscrew sits. Make it just big enough for the setscrew to have a flat surface.This should keep it tight.

Check out the carpet setups from www.corallyusa.com, and definitely get the lowered shock tower for the front especially for carpet racing. Anyone else care to chime in?

along with the front lowered tower i would get the x-long arm extensions. 4.0mm chassis and 3.4mm top deck. x-low roll center blocks also. these are what i have on mine and it rocks..

Just remember if you get the lowered tower, you have to cut 3mil off your shock shafts and shock bottoms.

Mike,

Here is a list of what I would recommend that is a MUST -
- Specialized RC Kydex Bumper Set
- Lowered Shock tower (running on carpet)
---You will need to take 3mm off of the shock piston to make this work
- Team Tamale shock tower braces
- Black spring set
- Specialized RC Extra long shock extension (or new arms that have xtra long placement built in arms)

Here is a list of nice but not necessary-
- Low roll center blocks
- Aluminum steering blocks (i would HIGHLY recommend these)
- Offset Motor mount (i like it - but really not necessary)
- 6 degree C-hubs - nice for testing setups - but I hardly run them at all - i like 4 degree best

Miscellaneous stuff -
- 4mm chassis - you won't need this for Mike's - we don't have enough traction - it makes the car too stiff, but if you ever do go to a big race where there is lots of traction - this is nice, but once again not necessary

I have 2 RDX's - one for me - one for the wife - her's is basically box stock besides - low roll centers, bumper set, & shock tower. I can run just as fast with hers as I can with mine - which basically has about every upgrade i can put on there.

If you have any more questions - feel free to shoot me a pm on here or mikes - can't wait to see another RDX running at Mikes - you can't go wrong...
