Does any have a pic of the regular shock tower and the lowered shock tower side by side?

Are you trying to tell the difference between the two?

One thing that's obvious without measuring is that the lowered tower only has 6 holes per side (two rows of 3), whereas the regular tower has 8 holes per side (two rows of 4).

Yes I am trying to see the difference.

Default Old style RDX two piece pulleys

I'm Looking for some of the old style RDX Diff pullies. They were the black two piece design that was replaced by the white liteweight pullies. You can see them in the RDX instruction manual on page four. Part number 79172.

http://international.corally.com/pdf...ual-090305.pdf

If anyone has one or two they want to sell, i'd be very interested!

Thanks!

Jack

Check with Jeff Brown at CorallyUSA. He can tell you if they have any. I have yet to ever see one.

The white pulleys replaced the two piece black pulleys. According to Corally, they list the white one as the lite weight version.

The black ones are real hard to find. I've checked with most every Corally dealer on their website, and no one has them. I was hoping someone here might have an old RDx or old parts stash.

Thanks anyways!

Hey there, I just finished an RDX build, got her used, but tore her down 100%and built per manual. I set the car up as close to the asphalt set ups that are listed (Using my integy set up station). I successfully run a TC3 and TA05on asphalt.

I believe I might be missing something fundamental... Here is my problem the car fishtails badly on counter-clockwise turns,(it will spin in circles if I let it) but turns perfectly on clockwise turns. I really dont think I am missing anything on my set up that would cause this drastic loss of traction, it has to be something simple.

Set up: 27 turn, 34p, 104s, c27s
Front toe in slight
-1.5 camber Front
-1.5 camber rear
4 degree castor blocks front
Two shims for rear toe-in not sure size looks like 3mm in width Maybe 2 degree of rear toe-in.
4 Black springs 60w front 40w rear 5.5mm height.
I have tried different droop settings to no avail, also tried loosening rear diff.
My next thing will be removing shocks and checking for binding from control arms and or swapping rear shocks left to right.
Any input would be appreciated, Thanks AL

Be sure to put in new bearings. Something is binding or flexing way too much under load, either due to wear or a broken part. Try running it with your hand in the counterclockwise direction and see if you can feel or hear the problem.
