Check with Bsydor(AKA "D"), he has been playing around with a RDX. He should get you in the ballpark. He should be at Fastlane on Saturday.

imprsme,

Steve is correct. Low block down/Regular block down. Basically 0 and 1 positions for both front and rear arms.

BTW, Steve, thanks for correcting me on the angle. I knew it was around 2 degrees by looking at it, just wasn't sure of the exact value (thus the ~).

Raul,

I have found that if you use AE spring perches, they will lower the spring significantly (nearly 1/4"). I have done that for both front and rear, and it works very nicely. This allows you to run larger (58-59 mm) tires and not have the collar topped-out.

Any questions, feel free to ask

Brian

Thanks guys! After I put them on the car I could see it. I had a feeling that just the off-set would yield that small of a adjustment.

if you can't get diff spring perches, just cut the eyelet down to lower the exsisting stock perches, but just make sure they are even or the car will feel tweaked.

Default my first outing

Well, if one word sums it up. WOW!!!!!! I went over 1 lap faster tonight with a box stock setup, over my fastest previous car. ANd they looked the same, just different colrs hehehehehe..... Everyone was shocked.

Jeff, Brian, and others,
I have acquired associated perches, but do you still have to cut the lower eyelet to acheive a little more up travel..? Not that you need alot of uptravel.


Also does the preassembled thrust bearings come lubed??

raul... i am glad you got great results with the new car.. i got one too.. still didnt get a chance to make it to the track.. tommorrow will be first day out with it...

i am using the Pro4 spring perches..

thrust bearing shredded before finishing the car.. now using the XRAY ones.. better quality.. Corally has upgrades??

anyone got problem with wheels(foams) rubbing spring perches.?? meaning a lot less dual rate on the radio.. can only run approx. 85% with a helios? supposedly the car will steer, and you wont need to run more dual rate anyways..

Arvin;
Welcome to the club. Had to turn the JR-R! to 75% to avoid shocks, but hav never been over 50% on the dual rate, pleanty of steering.

RCFREAK...... if you check back through the thread a little there are posts regarding the thrust washers. Corally Holland received a batch that were the wrong thrust washers.

You can contact CorallyUSA and get some replacement ones that are brass colored. Every kit from now on has the brass washers installed. Like I said, their supplier screwed up overseas.

ukeejim....... which tires do you use? I have 3mm worth of shims on each side of my front end to get the car to 190mm with JACO tires. I believe PARMA tires are offset so it is easier to widen the car. I have 95% dual rate and 75% endpoints and mine clears by like a 1/2mm.

Raul, if you get the AE perches, you don't need to cut anything. It's a "slip on" job, so to speak.

I'm happy you like the car. Everyone else seems to be as well
