Default Rims?

I'm planning on buying a sp12x and have a few questions on the Corally/US spec.

Is the main difference only wheel types it will accept (also chassis)?
Is it possible to convert a Corally type to accept non Corally rims and vice versa for a reasonable cost?

Regarding wheel/rim types is there only 2 types? Corally and the rest?
Also will the corally rims work on a Hudy tire truer?

Alot of questions and not all sp12x related but hopefully someone can answer

Cheers,
Anders

anders,

There is very little difference in the two cars really. and it is very easy to convert between the two..

If you have a Euro spec car and wish to run associated rims then you will need a corally 'associated style' back axle, left and right wheel hubs,
You will also need the different diff parts, (bearings, washers, balls etc) but I am not exactly sure what is in there yet as I havent got one!.

As for the back axle.
#75863 graphite axle
#75846 left wheel hub
#75848 right rear hub

front axles
#75858 (168mm front width)
#75858 (166mm front width)

sorry but I dont know about costs of these items either.

corally have a tyre arbor which is used to true their types of wheels I think the part number is #15100

hope that helps in some way.

I just found out that you will still need the long boss pinions from corally if you use the US Spec version. The short pinions will not fit.

I'm not biased or anything but I dont think that the pictures do enough justice to how lovely the car looks.

The euro spec car is stunning and the std front end performs much better than that of the 12M. So I would assume that the std US front end will work well too.. You may not need to rush out and buy your associated front end quite yet.
First tme out for the Euro spec of Andy Sawyer looked promising yesterday, using the std front end and 1.6mm tbar (and carbon spacer)...

Im like a kid at christmas waiting for mine to arrive - it should be very soon!!

Pete, I can't work out from the pics whether the T-bar is connected up to the damper/body post mounting plate mid-way between the T-bar pivots. It looks like it is - is this the carbon spacer you refer to?
PS. diff balls still working well!

Hi,

I'm glad to hear the diff balls are outlasting the diff plates (i hope)!!!.

As for the radio tray centre post... this actually goes through hole in the tbar and connects to the chassis - it shouldnt touch the tbar hopefully..

The carbon spacers i refered to are a small 1mm carbon 'oval' which you put on top of the 1.6mm tbar before you put the 'o-ring' or large c clip on... I think that they are meant to be used with the C-clip but the o-ring fits on very snug too.

If you do use the c-clip then I would suggest using it on the rear of the two pivots first, as this will promote the tbar to flex at a point forward of the rear pivot.

hope that helps

Pete

Default tbar

I forgot to mention that you wont be able to see the spacers on the pics above cos they all have the 2mm standard tbar.

You may be able to see the spacer under the c clip in this picture of David's car. (link from the pics section on CRC website)

hope that helps

I posted this earlier regarding the front ends....

***********
Chris Tosolini ran the production car at the Worlds and was stoked about it. He was one of only 4 drivers to run 40 laps at the Worlds track. The other 3 drivers finished 1, 2 and 3.

David did not have the revised frontend parts to fully test before the worlds so he went with what he new. The car is great as I have looked over Toso's car from the World's. It will not disapoint.
***********

The revised front end is heavily redone.

Actually you can use standard pinions. They just have to sit at the end of the shaft. Since Corally does not make long boss pinions over 30 tooth I believe everyone will need some standard pinions. Same with the Euro kit since they both use the wide axles.
