Not sure if anyone noticed, but Jeff updated the website with Chris Tosolini's Mod Foam IIC setup and Robbie's Carpet Rubber setup! Also a godo race report of the IIC

So if there are any questions ask away....

The diff issue is a known issue and hopefully they have fixed it with the new parts you have seen on here...

eddie10... Not sure if you are running mod or 19t or stock.. But here are some suggestions....

For Stock most everyone is running between 50-70 wt in the front with either a 1.1mm or 1.2mm 3 hole or 2 hole piston. And 20-40 in the rear.. Depending how much you want the car to dump onto the front end the lower you go in the rear but watch out it get's very steery... i would start at 60-30 and go from there...


Modified and maybe 19turn... I currently am running a 50 wt front with 2 hole 1.1mm piston and 40 wt 3 hole 1.1mm piston in modified... This has been good but i would like to play with heavier dampening and bigger hole pistons and see what that do's...

As for Tires.. Yes we are still using the same tires front and rear.. Right now with Jaco's new line of tires the best combination for me is Pinks all the way around. But stock you might want to try dbl pink, Megenta or pinks and see wich one suites you

Hope this helps..


Mike

Where do the 3 hole 1.1mm pistons come from? I thought all the Corally pistons were two hole.

This is a hot idea. Locally, we've been cutting the 1/12th scale nut down to fit. But the set screw !! Brilliant.

Thanks,

Jacko (of the crunchy diff)

Hey, does the PHI come with the diff nut wrench or do you have to buy that seperately? Is it worth buying?
