I have been thinking as I read the posts, that the title of this thread is a little missleading. It seems not so much that people dislike Corally, as the cars do not work for them, either because of the type of track/tyres, or because the cars do not suit their own particular driving/set up style. It must be hard to please all of the people all of the time. It seems to me hard to dislike something you don't have, unless you are jealous.
The parts supply problem is the classic, "which came first the chicken or the egg" scenerio. It would take a very brave store to commit a lot of money to spares, before having sufficient cars running locally to create a market. On the other side people won't buy the cars until the parts are available. I am lucky in that we have an importer who brought in less than a handfull of cars (Assassins), but has sufficient spares to back them up. The price of spares can be explained simply by lower production quantities, hence less economys of scale.
I am really pleased with my Assassin and race as often as I can. Outdoor small piddley asphalt tracks, and bad weather are not a good mix. We seem to be moving more to rubber tyres here and I have no complaints with them, work great for our conditions / tracks, probably slightly more expensive but you don't need a tyre truer?, and all the extra work that goes with that.
Just a few more random thoughts
