They work fantastic and have not stripped one yet, but have stripped plenty of normal hex ones in other cars.

They give you a sweet torque driver with the kit as mentioned

If someone is looking to sell their original Phi (rubber tire version) shoot me a PM. The for sale forum search doesnt work. I might be in the market for one. Im located in the US.

It really works great. Up to now I'll use torx in all my models. I'm looking for the screw kits!

Don't bother with that. Just go to your friendly local auto parts store and get a 7mm open end spanner there. There's quite an offer ont he market and they're probably much better than the Corally one.

You do need to adjust the diff in the car. And yes, the 7mm spanner is a must (regardless of which you buy).

That is an awesome looking car you have RDX, how does it handle with that suspension set-up? I was thinking of doing the same to mine when I get it. Crabboy’s car looks great also thanks’ for posting the pictures of your car’s.

Man that car looks sweet.

I like the different arms and rearward shocks, can you give me some feedback on what its like on the track, and why you made the changes.

Hi guys!

Toblerone, Yes you are right, that is some Tamiya 416 parts!

crabboy, Over here we run on rubber tires, 5cell, and modified motors, (3,5-4,0..). I tested the car standard with good result. But i thought it was hard to drive, not so good steering not so good cornerspeed. I tested it like this and the car was better, much better cornerspeed and better steering. It was also easier to drive around the track. more reactive. I also think with this "short" wheelbase the car is had better turn in and better rotation. The biggest improvement was the arms, the tamiya arms are not so soft as corallys. they dont flex that much.

XCELL, i like a nice looking car The car handles well, the biggest improvement is the cornerspeed and the steering, you can have more initial steering in the car!

If there is anything i can help you guys with, please let me know!
