Chris,

I'm using Ben's from the website as a starting point. The asphalt track that I ran on over the weekend had plenty of traction so I need to adjust the setup a little. Check back with me in about 3 weeks as I'm going back to the rug for a few weeks before hitting the asphalt again. I should have something by then.

Mark

Default Car Width

Does the car measure at 190mm out of the box with foams?

Does the kit come with the narrow or wide hex adapters? I would like to space the front tires out some more to be able to get the tires to turn further without rubbing the spring, but don't want to make it past the 190mm.

Brandon-in the front-one spacer on the inner hingepins and the stock hexes equals 190mm.

As an option-you can run two spacers on the hingepins and narrow hex's. Jeff said thats mad steering like that and I dont think anyone is running that as a set-up right now.

IN the rear-no innner spcers, but narrow hex's equals 190mm.

the kit comes with the wide hexes front and rear... if you need the narrows you hafta get 'em separate.

our local (small) track was just coated with Skid-Not, kinda like indoor asphalt surface. low traction right now, but it will improve as its run in. i got the RDX working pretty well last saturday using the oneway, qualified 2nd, finished 3rd in Pro Stock.

now if i could just get enough guys to run 12th scaleMini, i would go ahead and order that Minisassin!!!

Using two spacers does not put the tire out any further in relation to the shock, because the WHOLE arm is moved out when shimming the hinge pins out.

I was basically wondering if I put a spacer on the axle against the hex (to move tire out) if it would be too wide.

I am running it like it shows in the book with the silver hexes, so it should already be at 190mm.

I use the rubberneck bumper.. the car is really strong. you're going to hit stuff sooner or later..

I suggest that you use the plastic steering blocks.. they will break in a hard hit but won't allow too much energy to transmit to an arm or hinge pin. If you use the aluminum steerting blocks then you'll likely bust an arm in a hard hit.

the rear upright is duraluminum so if you hit really hard you'll break an arm.

otherwise its a very strong car.

Remember the car handles like its on rails and you'll be tempted to go faster than ever before.. so be prepared when you hit.. that you'll be doing so at a higher speed!

When you get a kit always carry spares. Lucky for rdx racers...all the arms, pivot blocks, hinge pins , shocks, shock towers are all the same no need for front and rear sets.

make sure you use locktite (blue) on all screws that go into metal

I have some setups weve been using here on the west coast that work good.. email me if you like

The only thing that I have broken has been 2 rear arms (50% arms) with very minor hits and two turnbuckles...they are very fragile.

I have had the car for about 6 or 7 weeks and run the P-Dub bumber and a larger front bumper.

I hope this helps, Mike

Both of the cars you got from John and I should have the Rubberneck bumpers already. The car you got from me has the BRP bumper on there as well.
