i finally was able to get both of my new rdx phi's on the track today, my local track is a super high bite, carpet like, indoor asphalt track. I put a baseline setup based off of other cars i have ran, the car had amazing corner speed and the tires dont scrub at all, the car both were really consistent. I have one setup for 17.5 with boost and the other is setup for 17.5 spec (non-boosted), i had them setup exactly the same just the boosted car has 6 degree c-hubs and the spec had 4 degree, and they drove exactly alike. Im very satisfied with these cars!! Cant wait to see what the new car is like!

you have the '09 lipo chassis/straight arm kit?
Spool in front? .
gearing-big pulley's (42t-2.0 ratio) or small (36t-1.71 ratio)?
Springs/shock oil?

Never been on asphalt w/ mine, curious to know an asphalt set up. My '09 is pretty dialed in on carpet.

i run the swept arms with 42t pulleys. Send me a PM if you need some asphalt help oh and yes, spool in the front, i tried one-way but it made the car way to lose with the 17.5 boosted car, spec was okay but still a little to lose for my liking. -Randy Banks

thanks,when it quits raining here in the NW and we go outside to the tarmac we'll probably go 13.5 non boosted.HUGE outdoor track(1/5 scale). We're running 36t pulley's, spool. Our main class is 17.5 non-boosted, but the last couple weeks a few of us have been dabling in the 21.5,while we finish out the local carpet season.

hey Kev we got the setup covered for asphalt... got some info from Simon a couple years ago at the reedy.... his car was super dialed...

will be looking back at 3d or even 2d castor blocks. softer front and possibly rear springs, and shock fluid changes. we also did some top deck mod's to get her to flex a little more, but I have 10,000 battery packs tyhrough mine now and flex is not an issue anymore

Hi,

I´m new to Corally and i will be running Corally for the next Nationals in Portugal (13.5 booster). I start TC last year with Xray T3.


I need to prepare a basic and start-up setup for the car.

The car is used, and from what i can see it already have been modded by the previous driver. The rear wishbones are inversed and the shock mount are place to use shocks behind the rear towe.

Its using a front spool.

Can someone give me some tips ?
I see that the car don´t use anti-roll bar.

Sorry.

Asphalt.
We have some wide tracks (suitable for 1/5 GT) and other small tracks.

This year most of the tracks will apply some water, sugar and coke.
We use control tyre LRP Vtec 30X.


I don´t have the Lipo chassis. It´s the standard one that comes with Phi '09.

for tracks like that this should be a good starting point below:


camber- 2* all around
droop- 2 over ride height all around
front springs- 17lb
rear springs- 14.5lb
ride height- 5mm all
shock rebound- 0%
rear toe- 1.5* using a .5 front block and 2 rear
front sweep- try .5* using a 1.5 front block and a 1 rear
shock oil- 30wt. to start
put 1mm spacing under all the wishbone mounts
tamiya 3 hole pistons in all shocks


if anything above is not clear enough just ask for a better explanation, hope this helps. -Randy Banks

I´ve been talking with the previous pilot. He was using Tamiya Shocks.
At the rear, behind the tower. I can use them or revert to Corally.

I have the option to "rebuild" the car to a more standard starting setup or start from were he stopped.

Lets see what i can do in the next days.


Thanks for your help.

If anyone is interested Spec-R TA05 gear diff drops right in in the back if you invert the std bearing holders. But you must use 37t pulley in front and different belts depending on which pulleys you´re using. But it´s doable.

With 37t gear diff with std 36t pulley in front and 21t pulleys you have to use std 507 mm front belt and Xray (or similar) 189 mm rear belt. You will get some overdrive if you use 36t pulley in front instead of 37t...

try the setup i posted above, just with 1* or 1.5* front camber instead of two with 1.5 droop over ride height and no shims under the wishbone mounts, it seems to work very good with high bite carpet and rubber tires, it makes the car very smooth. I wouldnt do any hop ups other than aluminum c-hubs, steering knuckles, and rear hub carriers, i find the weakest point on this car is the c-hubs unless you are using the aluminum ones. I cant really help as far as shops go, but you could try superiorhobbies.com or stormerhobbies.com Hope this helps -Randy Banks
