Still get 2-3 more packs until these tires are broken in. Running sweep spec tires BTW.

Few questions:
1) Whats the recommended doping setup for the car? I forgot to ask the local pros this one. On WGT, I do the entire rears and inner half of the fronts. I just realized when I got home that I doped up all of the tires when I ran them today, front and rear.
2) Recommended neutral noob friendly body for it. It currently has a ltc-r on it i think, but based on my driving, it wont last too long =) I run rubber tire carpet 17.5.
3) Trying to find the smaller diameter pullet that will fit the one way off a 07. The 07 looks like it runs a larger diameter inner circle then the 08's and just want the right PN before I order...or if anyone has a bunch of used bits and bobs they want to get rid of =)

An observation, when running rubber carpet, the tires pick up a ton of crap and residue after the run. My post run ritual is to wipe the tires off with a motor sprayed up napkin until no black comes off and then dope with sticky fingers or my kingsford/mineral oil sauce, then hook up to the charger.

Other then that, not a bad first time with a touring car for me!
Depending on what compound tires you are running, generally it only takes a couple of runs to get them working. I ran jaco greens or RP 30s and the break in procedure was goop/dope everything run for a couple minutes, then rotate and goop tires, run for a couple more minutes, rotate back and I was good to go. Once the were broke in, I only did a small strip on the inside of the front tries and all the rears, because if did all fronts and rears the car would push/understeer.

I ran an LTC-R for a bit, then switch to the Parma RTB GBS or a Mazda 6 and they last a couple months.

If you are looking for a good over all set up, go to Corally's USA site and get Brad Johnson's Cleveland set up from 11/09. That is a great starter set up.

Again, depending on which tries you use, if you get way off of the run line, your tires will pick up a ton of crap. Just like in World GT, if you get off of the run line you will have a lack of traction, same thing applies to rubber.

The car is very, very durable. I used to run 13.5 in the Madison, Milwaukee area and the car took quite a few big hits and kept going.

Does anyone know if the Tamiya TA05 front spool (53877) and/or oneway (53833) fits the RDX Phi.

Thanks

Default pro red series brushless motor

Hi Gents

Has anyone used the Team Corrally Pro Red Series (Star) 17.5T brushless motors.
Looking at the specs it seems to have a notable amount of extra power.

I currently use Speed Passion LPF with a Novak Ballistic and it a Tein killer but was wondering if the Corrally motor is a better alternative...

I use the corally 17.5 in my PHi 09 and have the track record with it at my local track, cracking motor lots of punch out of the corners which is ideal for my local track as it only has the one long straight.

Best 17.5 motor i have used so far .

Thanks Weekend Racer..

I currently use the Speed Passion LPF with 528 software. My Roll out is around 32 for a 168m Track with a good straight and fast infield. Would you say that I should try the same rollout for the Corraly or as it has loads more Torque, perhaps go up a few teeth.

I had weights on the tray to help keep the car balanced. Roar weight was 1420, but mine weighed at a hefty 1500.

Team Corally RDX Phi parts support. I searched a few online hobby shops in the USA and it seems allot of parts are out of stock. I am looking at getting one of these cars and I was wondering just how good the parts support in the USA is going to be in the future.

Thanks

Default Phi 2008 loose on power

I have a phi 08, kit set up.

Rear slides out on power, even when the slightest amount of throttle is applied.

Would appreciate any suggestions guys.
