Hi guys. Greetings from malta.

RICK DRAPER.

How sure are you that Fastrax copied Hudy and not the other way round?

I have been given to understand that it is actually the other way round. In fact if anything they all copied Serpent who had such a gadget years ago.

Whatever, unlike the case with the car, the Fastrax set up kit is better made, more durable, can adjust more parameters, and is cheaper. Isn't that what we all want?

Any further comment would be superfluous!

Sorry, I seem to upset X ray people very easily. I'll try my best not to in future.

I ran both my Yokes yesterday - both identical except that one has one ways and the other hasn't. The one way car seemed consistantly faster in terms of lap and race times. But this is with stock motors of course.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

if you look into it
serpent, huddy and xray are all one [HUDDY]
and the coralli used huddy to manufacur most of the parts for
c4 and 4.1 that is why the suspention is serpent.
the new coralli is coming out and being redisined becouse
huddy made the xray when thay had an agreement that coralli wouldnt make a gas car and huddy wouldt make an electric.
so now coralli wont yous huddy to manufacture there parts enymore.
xray didnt need to copy the coralli as thay made the parts in the first place LOL.

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

MUGENMAN.

You have got it almost right.

Hudy is a firm of engineers. Serpent and Corally, both Dutch, often used Hudy Engineering to manufacture certain parts for their cars. It's the sort of thing that goes on everywhere, but they are totally independent companys.

Corally and Serpent also make parts for each other, and yes you are correct in saying that they have come to an agreement whereby one manufactures IC and the other electric. And they are both gentlemen enough to respect that agreement.

Among other things Serpent produce shocks and suspension arms for Corally. Corally in turn produces wheels and other items for Serpent. It is a good arrangement and it works.

What Corally didn't expect was Hudy, who they were giving plenty of business to, to make a car - the X ray, and that that car should be a perfect X Ray replica of the Corally C4.

Yes you are quite right. I would feel the same way about keeping a new car under wraps, as Corally are feeling at the moment. And who can blame them!

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Default CVD wear

Anybody having heavy wear on the front blue aluminum CVDs ???

My front ones on my MR4 Pro Worlds have gotten really sloppy. The slot for the pin has become worn and they don't have a lot of runs on them.

I used a good amount of black grease when i installed them. Any other things you do to prevent the wear ??

I'm thinking of replacing them with the MIP shiny steel CVDs.

The blue universals are OK for stock, but I have given up on them and use the Yok Hardened Universals. They do not bend very easily, less than the MIP's shinny CVDs, and will last 3 times longer.

They do -- they make both the shiny steel and the black steel ones.

I'm trying the shiny steel ones in the front to see if they last longer.

I've never bent one in 2 years.

Mine just get worn and sloppy around the pin slot.

Hopefully the shiny steel ones won't wear as bad.
