Sometimes you have to dial out some front end to get the rear to work. Try a harder front spring.

Also the 3* caster blocks worked better for me over the 4* blocks.

I think the roll centers could be changed too.

on the front and rear do you run your roll center blocks high or low?

I personally don't like or use swaybars because it is too easy to develope a tweek in your car with the bars......and if the bar shifts a little side to side it might become a "sometimes tweek"......There is nothing worse than a car that does wierd stuff "sometimes"

A lot of people swear by swaybars........and they do work in certain situations. I just have a bad taste in my mouth from bars......so I try to stay away.

i can go back to corally shocks if you think it would work better

I agree with Mike on the low flat pins in the rear.....start with that.
I would also try a lighter rear oil and limit the droop front and rear to about 2.5mm over ride height

Only thing I would recommend with Tamiya shocks is to go with the 3-hole pistons; 45w front, around 40w rear. Not sure why the 3-hole is so much better, but I tried back to back and it was noticeable.

Hey, large diff rings, way to join the party, Corally. Maybe now you guys can quit using the diff Tamiya puts in its basher sedan.

Corally just sent the message about the new diff to everybody on their mailing list.

Quote:
RDX Phi magic VIII: The all improved RDX Phi Diff - #79680:
Corally introduces an all improved RDX Phi differential (#79680). This new improved diff ensures long lasting super smooth trouble free diff action.
1.) The new diff uses 18 x 2.5 mm chrome balls (#1015) which run on large super hard diff washers (#79684). This combination guarantees to handle higher torque required for today’s brushless racing.
2.) The thrust bearing has been replaced by a special flanged ball bearing (#1125) which provides super smooth low maintenance thrust action.
3.) The diff uses the black anodized aluminium M4 (#1257) Nylock Nut for fine and trouble free adjustments.
4.) The new optionally available 7 mm hex graphite diff nut wrench (#79685) will make adjustments even easier. Also even if the diff is already installed in the car.
5.) The new short (#79681) and long (#79682) outdrives have larger flanges for better and tru support of the diff washers. These also cover the diff balls and help prevent dust or other dirt from intruding and minimizes rebuilding of the diff.

18 diff balls.......thats what i'm talking about.

And the bearing that replaces the thrust assembly is huge and should last for a long time.

It takes time to copy Tamiya, Hot Bodies and XRay while still making it look like your own. :-D

I kid... that's great news for my Corally friends. Will new kits come with this diff?

We will have these in 2-3 weeks when our next order arrives.

Not sure when kits will have these in them.

It contains a 4x11mm bearing in place of the thrust assembly.
