how did you modify it ???

I cut a couple of slots for the extra piece of tape to hold the battery in place and will stick weights in around the battery to make sure it stays there.

Running it for the first time like this next Sunday at the ever popular Ardent series, so will let you know how it goes there.

Cheers,

looking good fella , is that a shorty 2s lipo ???

Corally use a 3mm screw to attatch the steering blocks to the lower arms, so I put the screw through the blocks, then onto a 2mm wide bolt and then screwed the whole lot into the lower arms. It's a bit fiddly to do but it does work just fine. Then, just readjust the top turnbuckle in the upper arm to get your camber setting right and that's it. After that, I readjusted the homemade turnbuckle/support thingy between the steering blocks. My mate has given me some parts to make an extra wide version of what I have done here. Basically, it comprises of a cut in half steering block which sits between the actual steering block and the lower arm. Then, there's an extra long turnbuckle for the upper arm to get the camber setting right. I will give mine a go first, and then try his to get a feel for the differance. With regards to the 2c setup, yep, that's a RevTech stubby 2c. I wanted to use a stubby battery as it gives more scope for electronics placement on the chassis. I think it's only a 4000mAh pack, but a mate of mine has run the same setup and he is nowhere near going flat. Got the last 12th national tomorrow and then running the GT car next Sunday at Ardent. Cheers mate!

- how to fit the tape for the LiPo? Are there slots for that? Or does the tape just go all around in some kinda way?
- does the pole the shock is screwed on top of come with the rear end kit? I don't see it in the pics in the Corally brochure. How to solve this problem? I only will buy this kit if a decent shock mounting is possible, without using the topdeck!
- is it possible to use smaller size LiPo with this/your configuration? For instance shorty 2S LiPo? Or something like this http://www.cs-shop.de/Lipo+7-4V+4000...EGAL+2011-.htm. Weighs 211-229gr. Al lot less than about 300gr of the high end LiPo's
- on carpet this rear end configuration is not that necessary?
- does a SpeedPassion MMM series motor fit in this rear end? I don't mean as to the size of the can but as to the fact that the wires are plugged in on the side

Kind of expensive.
Aren't there any other speedos that can work with Corally engines?
I can't imagine that everybody that uses Corally engines is using the BD.

Does the SP GT2.0 work with Corally engines?

Balls to the wall, that's how it's hanging.

That 12th track had about as much grip as an ice skating rink. I crashed more there than I have total in the last 5 years. Then again, when other guys figure they can go full throttle into a corner without letting up and use other cars as speed bumps, well, you see how this goes. Never broke a chassis in my life, except there. Glad to know I wasn't the only one, Paul also snapped one as well. No additive nor surface treatment at the istc along with long tech also made things fun. But as you told me at the track, "hope your enjoying this lovely, slick surface as well as breathing in everyone else's farts all day long".

When things do not go as planned, the answer is always booze, booze and more booze. Remember, time is not wasted if your wasted all the time! (for the younger readers here, I'm just kidding)

I did however redeem myself by winning an event last weekend.

Anyway, how's that 10sl wgt with 2s? I bet it's a riot.
