I'm with you on that one. Mainly been a problem with my outdoor car as opposed to my indoor car. Both had the 2.9mm chassis plates; so, it could likely be the grit of being on asphalt.

I ran across some GIANT versions of images I think we've seen before. It's like having a really blurry version of the car right in front of you.

That's the first good look we've seen of how the topdeck attaches to the bulkheads. Very interesting looking. I bet it's hard to fit a LiPo in there.

I find it interesting that Corally would let their "Factory" Mod drivers use different shocks. In the text it says that they are "working on new shocks" for the lowered shock towers....I bet they are similar to a Tamiya shock!!

Hopefully they mean shortened shock shafts so you don't have to cut them down. (Insert argument about not needing to cut shock shafts here.) I agree, though, there's all kinds of interesting stuff on those cars you wouldn't expect to see in production. Maybe they're given some leeway since it's still in the prototype stages?

That's the first time I've seen the center point steering used on the Phi. The topdeck looks like it's been pulled on to the bulkheads or something. Very interesting stuff.

if the car uses the same arms and all will that mean that there could be a possible release of a conversion kit for the rdx? kind of like what hey did for the 007..
