I broke a lower pod plate as well, someone at the track suggested leaving out the center screw in the t-plate as this is where it broke. anyone else run with only the outer screws in place? I also broke a ride height adjuster, it pushed the bearing through. it was in a tangle, not a wall hit so im not sure why it would have broken.

I run without the centre screw, and it does increase rear traction. And yes, it does increase the chances that the t-bar breaks in a crash, but it is still worth it for the better handling.

I have also had a ride-height adjuster break the same way, but it was be being hit directly in the side by another car going full speed. Despite any number of sideswipes of track markers, they have not even moved! I put it down to a freak accident. (The same freak accident that broke the bottom plate too! )

So, after 30-odd runs, my Corally has lost one T-piece because I drove badly and smacked a corner marker - hard. Better than my Trinity, so Im happy. And it handles sooooo well...

Hi Jeff - How ya doin' buddy!

Ya, I made a delrin bumper piece that utilizes all four of the front holes... and it works!

I found the "weak" part of the car this week.... as you could probably see from my order Monday....!

Going full speed into the 1st corner... taking the "inside line" going to pass by a "back marker" (lap traffic) for the 3rd time in 3 minutes.... then he decides to shut the door on me and so I just barely clipped the inside barrier and.... YUP... you guessed... straight into the outside barrier..... "head on"...!

Totally ripped all of the electronics off the servo tape... and actually ripped the stapping tape holding the batteries in THROUGH the rear battery slot on the Chassis.... and the front of the car... bumper, front suspesion arms... even those little servo mounts held up..!

So... I guess my little delrin bumper works....?

But .... CRAAP... that hurt!

Default T-bar

Hello, is it possible to use another brand of t-bar (asso,trinity...) on the Corally car?

Thank you

Nope. I just placed a 12x t bar and a ASC. t bar together and they don't line up at all.

i thought that they had mounting holes for either T bar.the AE front end and T bar were supposed to be able to work with the car.i could be wrong though

They might very well fit then I wasn't aware of the extra mounting holes. I will have to do some more research

Both kits do come supplied with the same Corally T bar - 2mm thick. It may be possible to fit Associated T bar, but i think it would be a fair amount of work, as you would need to change the pivots, and the radio tray post would also be a problem.
