I have only talked to Ralph briefly, but it sounds like they are pleased with the cars. The first day required a bit of time to dial in since we were not able to run the RX8 on that track prior to the race. But Day 2 and after has been good! Considering the level of competition, not bad for cars they had to build only days prior to the race!

Hopefully more good news to come this week!

Drew,

you think I can still get a P/S/R for a Max XXL3 I got back in 2009? I spoke to Ralph yesterday and there's none in stock but I forgot to ask if it is still available for order from Max.

Hi Dorian,

I will check, that one might be hard to come by. I will find out and post here.

Ralph is checking right now, just emailed Max. We are just waiting on a response.

Thanks Drew

Default Info on the RX8

OK guys below is a list of info for the RX8.

The bodies the team liked the most was the R15, there were a few that liked the 909. So I think if you have both you will be fine at any track.

The clutch, you will need to seat the clutch before running. Set the clutch lose about flush with the nut. Run a tank or two on the starter box revving the engine up to engage the pad. This will let the pad break in and perform better. You are looking for a light blackish mark on the pad.

The springs, right now the mugen white is the closest to what the team ran in the front. Xray should be shipping the new springs soon. The Xray rear 35lb and 38lb spring will work fine.

The shock oil setup. I think a good starting point is 2 hole fixed all the way around. Ralph ended up with 3 hole fixed 700 in the front and 2 hole fixed 550 in the rear. That is what he liked best at the WC.

Tires, most of the team ran 32 fronts and 35 rears. they ran between a 6mm to 7mm split.

The bodies were mounted 23mm forward. The measurement was taken from the middle of the bumper with the body mount forward.

The flex on the radio tray seemed to make more steering then having it with no flex. I am sure that will differ with each racer. Ralph, Mike and Paul ran the flex.

Hope this helps some as we will be having more info soon. Please post any feedback here.

Thanks Drew
