What springs are you running in the rear? A lot of the setups on the site now have really soft springs, like 17lbs. I've gone all the way up to 24, and it's freed up the rear of the car tremendously. I noticed in Jeff Cuffs' latest setup, he's using 24's too, so maybe there's something to it.
i have 30lbs in the front and 26 in the rear.

What setup are you using? i don't run mod, but by buddy McGoo who runs FAST 19t at my low bite track is getting plenty of stering with his RDX. I know thats not mod but says he has some dialed out on his radio and it doesn't look too much slower than all out mod. He can get that much steering with 26 or 28 mm foams.

Move the shocks in a whole on the front arms and shock tower. Go up 10wt on oil and one step on springs.

Close up of the balls. A Screw behind the shocktower holds it on.

I'm using a carbon edition Orion Lipo in my RDX, but the top deck doesn't make plugging the battery in very easy. Do you guys suggest modifying the top deck, or using some different tabs on a set of bullets?

Syndrome don't you run the carbon battery in our BL lipo class? How do you have the battery set up in it?

I run my plugs toward the front of the car. The one that's under the topdeck, solder the wire to it at a 45 degree angle, and it'll fit under the topdeck, no problem.

To keep the battery from sliding around, I glued some thick rubber o-rings to the chassis that won't obstruct the belt, and will prevent the battery from sliding in toward the center of the car.

Corally's team driver Brad Johnson was at our track all weekend, spreading the RDX knowledge. Cool guy, and very helpful. I learned, among other things, that I have a lot to learn. :-) And that I'm infamous!

I'll try soldering the wire into the bullett connector differently. Are there bullets with 45 degree angle tabs that would make it easier?
