Probably a silly question but oh well. The pics on the CRC site shows the battery retainer o-ring and 2 smaller black o-rings. Anyone know where I can find 2 small black o-rings?

Or find a fellow racer who is running a Corally 1/12 scale as they use o-rings everywhere!!

I use 2 small pieces of silicone fuel tubing where you see those o-rings. The silicone o-rings out of most 1/10th scale offroad and touring car shocks also work well.

While we are on the subject fitting the transponder neatly into that hole.....

At (last years!) Worlds... there was a bit of talk about how the chassis hole between the front suspension arms prevents the build up of air pressure under the chassis that can cause high speed understeer.

I'm not going to mount the transponder tight for this reason. Mine sits off to one side and I cut the lugs off it a long while ago anyway.

Peace

Mark

There are a few things I'm not crazy about with this car. That is my only REAL gripe. How can something like this not be found (and fixed) in testing? I mean really do team drivers never take their motors out? Just seemed like a big goof to me.

Though it has pushed me to going brushless sooner.

two year's ago when they made the rear end of this car the motor's where shorter and you could get them in,and now there bigger and they are working on new rear pod plates i hear. and brushless ya that sounds cool but no body up here runs mod,its just to fast but it is fun oh ya.

I did it becuase I have never liked the way the cell band bends the chassis. I used tape on my 3.2 becuase of this..... but I also hate tape!

I have not run it yet so what do I know!

Oh the spurs are Xenon. Note sure why... its what Helgar do in the UK. No problems here with dirt. All my diff problems went away the day Slapmaster came to town... only running indoors however.

Cheers
