How can you change the shock angel on this?
And by the way this a prototype. The real thing can look different.
I wouldve thought they would have the angle with no shims much steeper so that you could have more adjust-ability. Then you could shim the ball stud to get less angle.

Graphite shock towers will be sold as option. Looks like you need some long pinions as well...

Maybe when you can flip over the pully and the diff etc. you can use short pinions? and corally has also long pinions so that is no problem I think?

And does someone have more info or photo's about the carbon shocktowers?

Default Inner Camber links

At first I was wondering why they only had 2 inner camber link holes. But then I realized the red mount is adjustable with shims. Very nice design! Also I like the sway bars are mounted on bearings...also a nice detail.

Unless there are new bulkheads, the carbon shock towers would look unsecure judging by only two holes to secure it and the length you would need.

Schumacher mi3 had that same design about 5 years ago, the bearings on the swaybar is Also neat, Kawahara had it for the tm e4 a while ago too, I guess corally is taking the best ideas from different cars and putting them in one car

The Corally motor has a shorter rotor shaft than other motors. I put a D3 in the car and didn't see a problem using normal sized pinions.

The current carbon shock towers should fit directly onto the HMX. The bulkheads are the same distance apart. If you look closely at the pics, the diff holders have been turned on end. This gives you 3 possible height adjustments front and rear. Corally is working on gear diffs for the car as well. The projected release date of these gear diffs is the first of the year. They are also working on a dual bell crank system. The chassis on this car already has the holes drilled for it. The production car will also have a new shock design.

Car looks great, but good point... A short top deck??? As was mentioned earlier long ones are the way to go... and most other cars have them... Looking forward to seeing how it works...
