I don't know. I think they may go away from the current C4 design. Maybe:

batteries down the center.

retain the center one way pulley, but redesign it with the set screws already in place.

Thinner suspension arms and smaller hubs designed buy Corallly specifically for 1/10 electric racing.

New shocks, threaded aluminum, hopefully retaining the piston hole changing option.

Of course it will be graphite plates. I can't see Corally going tub chassis on us.

I wouldn't mind seeing a car somewhat similar to the Kyosho, except somehow including dual belts.

I really don't see them going shaft drive, it could happen though.

Whatever Corally has in store, I sure hope they get their quality back up to the level of the C4 AGLE kit... I was kinda disappointed with the fit and finish of the 4.1. Maybe I got a bad one, but it seemed like I had to do hours and hours of hand fitting with my 4.1 to get everything moving freely, and every time I handled the aluminum bulkheads the black "anodizing" came off on my hands.

wow you really must have got a lemon..

Ive never heard of those problems..

my kit is a year old, and the annodising is perfect...

my arms were free without any hand fitting...I made a couple of mods to allow easy hingepin removal..and shaved a bevel edge to my upper deck where it rubbed on my upper arm (when using reactive castor)

Same here. I have never had the anodizing come off of any of my cars. No matter what company they were from. As for hand fitting, the only hand fitting I had to do was when I got my new 3000HV cells and they came with shrink wrap on them. So they didn't quite agree with Corally's very out date battery trays.

BK: damn, I didn't realize it was almost that time. I still don't know what network here in the U.S. will cover it. I guess its time to go do some searching to see if the info is out there somewhere.

Well, I just confirmed where F1 coverage would be showing at this year. SpeedChannel , once know as Speedvision, will have coverage.

In all fairness the HV's are too big and the SMH's are too small so how do you accomodate both? These batt maunufacturers have to quit making up their own new dimension every six months

F1 in 13 days! I need to swith to satelite like yesterday... my cable company charges a premium to have speed channel- it would go from $35 a month to $55! Such a rip! Satelite will be $40 a month including SpeedCH

MikeR: is I live in an apartment, its easier to just have Cable. I found a good package with all the premium channels(including Speedchannel), and my cable internet. I save like $50 a month by getting it all in one package. So I'm all set for the F1 season to begin.

MikeR: to accomadate all my different cells, I modified the trays and straps to easily fit the 3000HV cells. Then I just put strips of tape on to of my other cells to make sure their in the trays securely. This simple little method lets the larger and smaller cells fit snuggly into my C4.1 and AxisPro.

I raced on the weekend a track i had never been to before, the club mostly run Nitro cars, and the locals wondered how can we drive our cars when they don't make noise??...

Anyway two of my fellow Corally drivers and myself were fastest and all 8 of us in the A final were quicker than the nitro cars

I also ran a new setup, which included...

rear shocks 40wt with Long Serpent/Corally red springs
front shocks 40wt with Short Serpent/Corally yellow springs
modified front shock tower (i.e rear made to fit the front)
no oneway diff (it's broken! i'm awaiting spares)
free as oneway on the layshaft
3deg anti squat (i normally run 0.5deg)
12x1 Corrally Motor with Fantom F321 brushes

this was a much stiffer setup than what i normally run, but the car was very fast and agile. I will stick with this setup at my local track for the next meet and see what happens.

BTW: I have simple solution to fitting HV and SMH cells into the Corally neatly, i will post a pic tomorrow, as a pic is worth a thousand words...

I went out to grab some practice on Sat. Didn't go to well. I had brushes bouncing on my motor(whiched caused glitching) and didn't have any AC there to power the soldering iron. So not much accomplished with the Corally that day.

Just a quick note

Corally have posted a new setup from Sakke, from the DHI Cup last month.

BK: Interesting mod. I just trim away some material from the edges of the tray. It accomplishes the same thing, just a different way.
