You can actually use the shock extensions from the older suspension arms as braces. A customer mentioned this to me on the phone one time. The part number is COR79248.

You can swap them out if you are changing the thrusts anyways. I don't think it is mandatory, but if you are installing new ones you might has well go ahead.

The bearings don't need to be sprayed out and relubed. They are super free and spin great out of the box. The outdrives do ride on the bearings that are pushed into the bearing holders. The fit is sometimes snug, if they are super tight you may have to check the fit of the bearing holders into the bulkheads for tightness as well.

Thanks Jeff. I eventually pulled my head out of my butt and looked at the one-way that came with the kit and determined that there wasno way the spool was going to fit in those bearings. After installing the rear diff I saw that the bearings slid up-to the bosses(?) on the outdrive. I've never run a one-way before so maybe this will be a good time to try one out. And if I don't like it I can always get new bearings and holders so I can run the spool. Although, I might have a small problem as I have already matched the bulkheads to the one-way bearing holders. Guess I will have to match the spool bearing holders to the bulk heads now.

Hi Jeff,

Do you know where I can get slightly shorter axles for my RDX? Believe someone posted an answer many moons ago...You?

FYI...I typically have narrow hexes on rear with RP30 pre-mounts.

Thanks.

Bill

Hey Bill,

Not that I am aware of. I simply dremel down the axle if I run the Narrow hexes and it is sticking out too far.

Jeff B - For the new rear hubs on (on Dayger's 2007 Novak Setup) what are they supposed to do to the handling of the car? I see the ball height can be changed as well with these new hubs.

Well, the vertical ballstud hubs have 2 mounting locations. The outer one will lock in the rearend more, probably more for rubber tire racing as it won't rotate as good. The inner hole will be used most likely for carpet racing on foams. You can adjust the angle more evenly and make subtle changes. You can also change the angle without changing the length which is nice.

I forgot to put on the setup sheet he ran 2 of the Corally shims, PO. 1280 under the link.



RDX Vertical Ballstud Hubs
PART NO. SRC79295 - $60.00 RETAIL - 2 pcs.

Jeff,

Will these hubs be applicable to the new car too?

Thanks.

Bill

well just look at the bulkhead on the right side of the car you will notice that it is the same length as the bulkhead that the motor mounts to. and i had to cut down the topdeck to get it to fit. so it has a short topdeck and equal flex. kind of like the new phi....
