It is also possible to run 3700 cells in the old chassis, I fixed it. You can file away something of the Battery Plate Posts (where the cells hit them) with a Dremel. Then you also need to lift up the Battery Strap a bit with some rings under the battery strap posts, otherwise the cells will fit to tight.

But indeed the latest chassis looks even better with that RDX battery strap.

Being a newbie in the Corally brand, whats the lifespan before a new model comes out. Xrays & Tamiya normal have a new TC after 12 months. Just wanting to see if I should wait for the new RDX replacement or get another one.

The older RDX chassis will fit the IB3800 cells between the posts, just. However the battery doesn't totally sit flat in the cahssis but very close

Big "Thank You" to Rob Michaels from Corally for all his support this weekend at the Reedy Race. A great weekend for Corally and the RDX we took 6 of 10 "A" main spots in the spec class.

Jeff, Nice showing at the Reedy Race. I saw that you had your car in the A-main after a round or two. Did you change your setup at all, or did you run what is posted on your setup sheet on the corallyusa website? What was the deal with Toso all week?

Default 3.9 chassis

Hey I', picking up the carpet chassis from my LHS, will traction be better or suspension more dailed in?

Welp, I'm in the club. It's weird after running a TC3 for so long (BIG ups to my wife for the early Father's Day present! ). My last belt car was the original MR4-TC. Anyway, does anyone have any other build tips to add to the ones below? I'll be getting my one-way kit by Wednesday or Thursday! I'll be racing indoor high traction asphalt and an occasional parking lot. Oh the anticipation...I can't wait!

3) buy the diff rebuild kits just in case as they have the very good thrust washer assy in them (copper race).

4) Pull out the thrust washer regardless and heavily grease with AE black grease and reinstall. if its got a silver cage on the thrust washer-keep it as a spare and put the copper one in.

5)Do not overtighten diff-do final tightening in the car. With a blade screw driver-you can adjust diffs on the RDX with the wheels on!!! JUst tight enough that they dont slip-no more.

6)Dont be stupid like me and try and outsmart the intruction manual. I built mine without the spacers on the hingepins and guess what?? I broke three steering blocks and bent two CVD's in less than 20 laps on the track in incidental contact!!

7)to achieve the short camber link position on the front-you will need an extra set of 28mm turnbuckles (79271)

8)Do put on the BRP TC3 bumper and/or the Rubberneck bumper. The stock bumper is junk-unless you run on a track with no boards.

If you are running indoor HIGH bite traction asphalt got www.corallyusa.com and download the set up of Mark Unrath. That set up will be so close you want know what to do. LOL

I am assembling the spur gear/ center pulley and i have 1 extra bearing. Should that be in the assembly? Or should the assembly have just 2 bearings?
