I asked about solid, non-clamping hexes awhile ago, and never got much response. The people that did respond didn't understand why anyone wouldn't want clamping hubs. I machined down some super wide ones I got when I was running an antique Yok sedan. But I need some 4mm axle shims. Really, there is no reason Corally couldn't release these hubs in a non-clamping version. Heck, it'd be CHEAPER to make them that way. Leave out the machining and drilling/tapping steps, and drop the cost of the bolt. Less time and fewer manufacturing steps means Corally makes more money on them. Or Speciallized RC could make them. HINT HINT Jeff!

I think the issue with the non-clamping version is if you arent careful you can lose the pin in the axle.

I was also wondering about the new narrow rear hubs, and why people are using them. I believe if you use them, you can run the wide hexes in the rear which are more durable.
I used the HPI ones in order to make ROAR width at the carpet nats, they are "inbetween" width of the Corally narrow and wide hexes and worked perfectly.

Does HPI only make one hex, or could you provide a link or part #? Thanks crazy monkey avatar man.

I'm not sure!! A local racer told me about them, then I went to my LHS and picked them up there, if I remember correctly they were "relatively" spendy becuase they included a bunch of shims to be able to widen the wheels more. You can call my LHS Speedworld Raceway 916-771-5318 or email is SPEEDDOG@MINDSYNC.COM

I don't know the actual part number either; but, when I saw them at a couple different LHSs they ranged from $32-35.

An answer and a question.

Dunno about the gearing on asphalt (on carpet with a 90ft straight we run a 6.36 or so with monsters which would be a 100/31 or so) but you don't have to use corally gears. I happen to like Kimbrough simply because theyre everywhere and cheap.


Harsh, Jeff, shushi Brian and company . . . what diameter turning radius you end up with when running foam on carpet? With what ever radius you use to race is there "room" to turn up your epa's or DR to get the wheels to turn further or are you running at max? just curious

I usually set it fairly close to max (furthest travel before the rims hit the shocks on the track, bench is different), but leave a little room incase I need a few extra clicks of it sometimes. I just tune the car to my liking from there.

With a monster stock and a 100t spur I'd start with a 28t pinion that'll give you a 7.14 ratio... that sounds like a big track though so you may need go up just a hair... try it and go from there... good luck

I believe the corallys are smaller than xrays.
