Default CVD Bones

I've bent both my front cvd bones. Is anyone have the same problem? I run mostly 19t on asphault and did have a few run in with the pipe but were not hard hits.

rcgen,

I have not bent any cvd bones and have taken a few good hits.

Guys who race on foam tires:

If you want to run your car at fairly low ride height without running the collars near the top of the shock, use AE TC3 spring perches. You'll gain about 1/4" that way. This is especially useful if you run a lowered front shock tower.

I also have found a really good setup for medium bite CRC ozite. I'll post it a bit later.

on the short arms, the mounts go on the outside of the bulkheads, and on the long ones, you flip them on the inside.... just like the way the X-rays did, if i remember...

Brian, thats eerily close to what i wound up with in Dallas yesterday, only i was using the 1.3mm bar, and no prosquat in the rear.... but should have switched to the 1.9 bar, as the front was diging in a little too much.

what would the prosquat do for it? maybe i should have tried it, just ran out of time...

Wes, the prosquat seemed to make it turn in harder and rotate more on and off-power. This was for a really tight and technical layout, so for more flowing layouts it'll be killer, as well.

Just got my RDX this weekend. I've been building it a little bit every night and all I can say is WOW! This thing is going together beautifully. I've been an Associated guy for the past 6 years and the difference in the manufacturing tolerances isn't even close. Build the RDX like the instructions say and its perfect. Build a TC3 or 4 from the instructions and you've got a trainwreck.
