"The first thing we do is replace one of the o-rings in the shock body with a thick washer. We find the thickest washer included in a Losi parts bag, LOSA5050, works perfectly. The reason is to improve the reactiveness of the shock for transitions on the track."

Has anyone here tried XRay springs on their Corally shocks? Do they fit?
Thanks,
Victor

You'll have to flip the collars upside down and run Tamiya retaining cups on bottom.

To me, it's backwards from the way it should be; so, I understand why you would think the same.
My screws seemed to just touch it it cant go all the way in on the short side of the coupler (front) the fatter bit at the back the screw goes more flush, i have to keep an eye on it was if it takes a wack it knocks my rear toe out. the washer stops it from compeltly coming out, but pulls the coupler out so its at 0deg instead of 2.

For foam or rubber? Basically most of the geometry from the RDX and Phi work close, so you can use a lot of the same settings.

Start with that setup for the regular RDX on carpet. 7mm means 2mm over the 5mm ride height. This is a really good starting setup for the old car.

So comming back from Vegas I got the flight steward to announce:

"James Arluck, passenger James Arluck.... I.N.S. is waiting for you at the gate, passenger James Arluck please have your green card ready."


the best was watching his facial expressions go from confusion, to a brief moment of fear, to recognition and then embarasement.

just thought you guys could get a chuckle.
