looking forward to learning to drive a WGT car
Awesome mate, with my 1c/10.5 setup, the car is really easy to drive as there is far more grip than there is power. You can concentrate on your lines and consistant laps. Looking forward to Ardent at the of the month, its gonna be great!

Yes that was me. And I was pitting right next to the Munno's. And I remember you at TQ with your 1/12th. It's been awhile since I've driven anything but a Corally.I even won the ROAR Masters 1/12th in 2003 with a Corally .

New rear end fitted and looking forward to testing it out soon

Feels really smooth and it allows the battery to be fitted all the way to the rear

Will now take the parts off the car and give them to my mate to do the supergluing and sealing (which he does the best I have ever seen!). Will test in a week or two and let you know what happens!

As for the servo, I played around with the placement and found that bolting it to the back of the mounts gives the best ackerman angle plus the best bump steer angle for the turnbuckles.

Feel free to ask any questions or if you need a specific pic of something on the car.

Cheers, Chris.

Hi there, the P-4 Coversion Kit is part #: 74790.

If you go to corally.com , then click on the pretty girl, the latest catalouge appears which has the P-4 parts at the bottom left of the left hand page.



I tried my car out last night with the new rear end parts and was very impressed with the handling. I will try some softer side springs to see how that helps (or not!).

Cheers,

Chris.

I am indeed running a single cell LiPo. You can run the car with the battery in various locations on the chassis depending on what you require handling wise. And as Phil mentions, with the 4-pivot system, you can run a 2c LiPo across the chassis also. Got a couple of things I am going to try out and will let you know the results! Cheers!

Not absolutely sure, but I don't think so. The spacing for the bottom 4 screws are in a differant place (I think, anyway!).

It doesn't fit. The dimensions and screw patterns are different.

An offtopic question but the 1/12 12x has a lower axle placement in the pod when comparing it with a 10x NG, Just wondering if anyone know if the very old 1/12 corally pod (with the small fricition disc damper) come with a lower axle when comparing them to c10/c10x/f1 pod?
