Ok, I tried getting the center post steering to fit all day. I cant get the ball cups in the center to stop rubbing. Any suggestions?

I had to sand a little bit off of each on the inside and that was using regular associated ball cups.

After talking with Johnny at the IIC, I ended up using a small rat tail file to elongate the holes away from each other. Used the standard RDX ball cups because they had the best amount of clearance.

You also will want to file about 1/8" off the standard steering post (end that will attach to the new topdeck) in order to get some clearance for the screw at the other end of the post. Otherwise, you need to get an Assassin steering post (it is shorter).

If you have the Specialized bumper system (foam and Kydex), you likely will only occasionally break a rear arm on an RDX.

Depending on what class(es) you run, you should maintain an inventory of the plastic "blades" that go on the ends (inner) of the dogbones. In general, blades may last 3-5 runs in mod and 10-15 runs in stock.

Bill, my blades have lasted forever. At least since the reedy race.

OK, I should further qualify my statement then. Plastic blades on diffs last far longer than blades on spools. Blades on one-ways are somewhere in the middle.

Oh, and that front blades wear out faster than rears. How's that?

Good news...Blades are cheap.

Hello everyone,

Has anyone used the Xray c-clip (as talked about in previous pages) in a diff rebuild? If so, is it the same quality as the Specialized or Corally c-clip? Anything else I should know about them?

Also, Can anyone confirm that the "STEEL" oneway outdrives are #79169? It's not very clear on the corally site.

Yes, the steel outdrives for the one-way are 79169.

Honestly, I don't think the chassis setup would change much. You would just see more overall grip. If you are in low to medium bite I would put it on.
