I can't believe you have to add weight. I've got the smallest electronics and I'm still way over the weight limit.

If you refer to rokosam picture... it is a 235mm version with 2s lipo. The weight limit for pancars with 2s lipo on outdoor tracks is a lot higher then WGT. Normaly 1200 grams.

Yes, my Corally 10SL is 235 mm and uses 2S lipo for outdoor asphalt tracks as we do in Europe, completely different to US indoor 1S specs, I just added 35 gr of weight to balance the chassis. Donīt think this is too much really.

Hi guys, I am now the proud owner of a Corally SP10SL (GT10) car that I indeed to run through the rest of the winter series up at Ardent Raceway and the forthcoming GT10 national series here in the UK.

I indeed to use mine as a 1c/10.5 car.

First thoughts on the actual build, very high quality!! The rear end really is a brilliant bit of engineering! Everything fitted together with no issues what-so-ever.

I particulary like that the centre pivot is in exactly the right place so that so don't have to worry about the pivot moving in a stack (and tweaking the rear end!).

The side links felt a little tight to start with, but after fitting a slightly looser o-ring to each, they are now really free moving but with no play, ideal!

Will now give my car to my mate to do the supergluing/sealing (which he does a fantastic job of!) and will then put the electronics in ready for shake-down/testing.

Cheers,

Chris.

(I put the above on a new thread not realizing there was already a thread for the car!)

Actually we race both indoors and outdoors on 1 cell with a 13.5 binky mode (no timing on the ESC).

So what do people think about the new rear end parts to convert away from the side link setup, and bring in the similar system used in the 'V' series cars??

There are some pics from a German website of a similar setup here:

You guys should be able to get the new parts (come as a complete package or seperate parts) from Corally USA soon.

Cheers!

Don't know how long it will take to get the new parts to Superior. They have them in stock at the factory and I have my parts heading to me here in the UK. Just waiting to hear what the effect of using them over the link system is, but I will post some pics and add some thoughts once I have used them for myself.

Cheers!

I have also been running my new 10SL (1c/10.5 boosted) recently and am really happy with it! It seems to have a ton of steering, but not at the expense of loosing rear end traction towards the end of a run. Can easily run fast, consistant laps! What are 'all the options' you mentioned? I have the new rear end parts heading my way but what other parts do you have?

How's about a couple of pics to show us all?

Cheers mate, Chris.

(Oh, and my friend said I can borrow his 2c LiPo's and 17.5 motor to try out if I wish.)
