You can adjust the shockangle by shims. so now you can adjust it by even 0.1mm.

I like the design. How wide is it from motor endbell to the outermost part of the battery? Thanks.

Yep, you can use shims or longer ballstuds instead. Super easy to adjust.

Or use the Phi 07 towers for more laydown shocks.

But when you use those shocktowers you can't use the swaybar kit?

really crazy that this car isn't competitive out of the box. Some local racers already put 200 € into this car to make it competitive....

Get a new ride and need already new belts, tamiya gear diffs and old phi 07 shock towers and the shorter camber link holders etc. ...

Who says it's not competitive out of the box? No one runs the Serpent out of the box, the plastic too soft etc. You know this. Try to be a little bit constructive instead.

Iīm surprised to see a "team driver" open criticize other brands on forums...

No, newest kits have harder plastics and other chassis and so on ... but here we talk about the HMX. I like Corally, but i see that the car still need some work.

but i droved corally in the past and there it wasn't easy to be competitive without some modifications.

its only my opinion, thats why i changed my car ... and i see this already on the tracks here that the corallys have tamiya suspension, tamiya gear diffs, belts of other brands (should be xray?), phi towers for more laydown and the alloy parts for shorter camber links - "factory" drivers have those modifications too.

since now, they're not really happy with this car ... but i hopes corally find the way back to an successful time.

Sure, there is always room for improvements in any design. I think itīs great Corally is trying something different rather than just make a Tamiya copy. Letīs see if the HMX is a sucess or not. I think a geardiff will be included in the 2nd batch of the car.
