Hmm so I assume the EU version has the standard length shocks that were on the RDX? If so I'd just need to get shock towers and use a set of shocks from my current car... So I think i'll buy the US version with a extra one way and shock towers if I want to run some rubber...

Thanks for the help.

Don't forget the castor blocks.......and unless you run on very high bite you will want the thinner chassis

i would start with TJ's set up on the Corally site as far as bodies go i would use the Protoform Mazda 6 or speed 6

just the standard short....not full short with belt and pully change.

Rob's setup on corallys site is a good place to start. Some changes to his setup that I feel improved laptimes are no sway bars, 19 lb front spring in the outer hole on arm, low roll center in the front (low-med bite).

bodies are mazda6 or speed 6

ok first u take the trust assembly out and rebuild the diff rings,balls,etc, next instead of putting the trust rings and balls in and the berring at the bottom, 1/4 x 3/8 flanged same as a 1/12 rear bearing in the bottom instead of the stock one, then u take 1/12 rear axel shims and spce it out like 2 or 3 of the shims put it in and break it in and ull be good, i like the feel of it but we run it in brushless, i did a test with it with a co27 it did bring me down like a tenth or so but not much if u have anyother q'
s feel free to ask

We'll be running on fairly good traction (gets pretty high if we spray), but I don't think the thicker chassis will kill me to much.. I've actually been running the 4mm chassis on my rdx for rubber tires for awhile, and liked it over the thinner chassis. Not sure if I like the fact it doesn't tweak as often or how it handles

Hey guys need advice.

What adjustments do you usually do to get more steering entering a corner?
My phi handles great on sweeping turns and chicanes. Mid and exit steering is great. But on high speed straights into a hairpin, i need to really slow the car down to make tight turns. I always get over taken or knocked from behind at that point.

Any tips on getting more initial steering and a better tighter turning radius?
By the way, my setup is stock(EU spec kit) with front ball differential.

I totally agree Spool is the way to go. If your looking for that Hot off the straight Turn in it gives the car more bite into the turn .

Difference Between a Spool and a Limmited Slip Diff:

Spool:

A spool limits differential rotation to exactly zero. A spool consists of a pinion & ring gear only, the centre is solid, the axle is one piece. A mini-spool is similar, replacing the usual differential centre with a solid piece, retaining the factory axles. Technically a spool is not a differential at all, but is used to achieve a similar effect to an LSD on some street & race cars


A limited slip differential (LSD):

is a modified or derived type of differential gear arrangement that allows for some difference in rotational velocity of the output shafts, but does not allow the difference in speed to increase beyond a preset amount. In an automobile, such limited slip differentials are sometimes used in place of a standard differential, where they convey certain dynamic advantages, at the expense of greater complexity.

The main advantage of a limited slip differential is found by considering the case of a standard (or "open") differential where one wheel has no contact with the ground at all. In such a case, the contacting wheel will remain stationary, and the non-contacting wheel will rotate freely– the torque transmitted will be equal at both wheels, but will not exceed the threshold of torque needed to move the vehicle, thus the vehicle will remain stationary. In everyday use on typical roads, such a situation is very unlikely, and so a normal differential suffices. For more demanding use however, such as driving off-road, or for high performance vehicles, such a state of affairs is undesirable, and the LSD can be employed to deal with it. By limiting the velocity difference between a pair of driven wheels, useful torque can be transmitted as long as there is some friction available on at least one of the wheels

Hope this helps the new guys that do not understand the diffrence in the two.

Personally i would have used a one way for more entry corner steering,

hey pete

have you used the car on carpet yet as you have seen a spool is by far the best option in the corally to be honest bud i think ive forgot how to take it out
