So they are really testing even more parts and options at this time...
mmmm doesnt sound good, does not give much credibility for May release date.

i think corally needs to get the car on the market and look at optional lower decks later

the suspension seems set now, just working on the motor layout i think?

Can we have more info on kit inclusions: spurs, pinion, tires, oneway(i think thats in), shocks,so on....

and i have noticed that the older proto had no top bumper brace, but the car run at LRP masters did, will this be in kit?

Just try to see what to expect and price so on...

JANTLE: thanks for the reply and its nice to know that you more than willing to help me out in getting my hands on that sweet ride you guys have. i dunno if the austrailian distributor mentioned here erlier qualifies as the closest dealer in this region. i am about to email them and see if they can help me aquire one. if its not too much to ask, do you think you can help me out by referring me to one that i can approach/inquire with? or maybe point me out to someone who can? i hope if all else fails i can still count on Corally USA as an option.

I am friends with the owners of Hobby Express, the Australian distributor of Corally, i would be surprised to hear if they would reject an overseas order direct.

Beserce,
I only know that they're working their asses off to get this car into the shops.
And that Simo's layout will not be in the kit.

They decided on the direct+2belt design (not mid) for the kit.


Jeff, I heared that the 4to1 design was not really possible to be integrated?!

1. Dual belt Rear motor mount
2. Single belt Rear motor mount
3. Dual belt Mid motor mount
4. Single belt Mid motor mount

An optional mid motor bottom deck will be available to change this car from the original 2 shapes to 4. This car gets better every day!!!!!!!!!!

The 4th configuration makes me wonder...

Single Belt, Mid Motor Mount. This way, it is impossible to have a direct drive to the rear pulley. Isn't this will be like the Losi XXX-s belt configuration???

Hello all,

I will try to answer as many of the questions posted above as possible.

1. The Mid-Motor set-up is to be an optional part later. It will not slow production as it has already started.

2. Exact release date is not been set. May seems like a very good guess.

3. I am working with Constant now on final proofs for the box and other Print and Ad items. (We are that close)

4. The kit will be shipped with the Standard bottom deck and the two belt design. (Shapeshifter Transmission)

5. The shocks are of a new design

6. As for the front bumper brace I do not have an answer to that at this time. I will include that in my next e-mail back.

7. Exact price has yet to be announced. They are working on getting the kits together. I will let you know as soon as I find out.

I hope that I got everything. If not please repost any other questions.

Again, Thanks for all of your intrest in this exciting journey in bringing you the best touring car to hit the market.

Remember,

We are not followers of fassion just leaders in innovation and development.

GO CORALLY!!!!!!!!

Thanks,

Jeff Antle

JANTLE:

"4. The kit will be shipped with the Standard bottom deck and the two belt design. (Shapeshifter Transmission)"

Does that mean the car comes ONLY in the 2 belt drive? the direct drive setup is optional?

Who carries corally in southern california?
