All kits come with 2.9mm chassis. The 3.9mm chassis I posted is an optional part.

Im sure its been asked, but whats the difference between the carpet and aphalt spec cars? Is it just the front diff or does it go deeper than that?

So who's in charge of going through the thread and putting together an FAQ or something?

All the latest batches of kits received have had the X-hard arms in them. Not sure if this is a permenant thing or not. I'll have to check as they are not supposed to have them. EVERY Kit comes with swaybars. 1.9mm bars front and rear with required mounting hardware.

Yeah, except as Jeff said, the one-way and UK kits may or may not continue to come with the X-hard arms.

I just got mine yesterday, built the rear diff and started sealing the chassis. Everything looks very pretty. I took lots of pics.

No doubt! The #1 most common question on this thread, being asked every day!!! Maybe Corally USA can post it on their site.

It's just KO product... You can order it from KO.

http://www.shopatron.com/product/pro....1052.56.0.0.0

On another note, are any of the RROC setups online yet? I haven't checked.

Novak also offers one. I believe they state that it equals 25 regular shotky diodes. They offer it in 2 ways: as a wiring harness to re-wire your esc and a version that you just solder to the tabs on your motor.

Been running them for several years now and like them a lot...will never go back to the normal ones.

Hey Keith!

Well, the diff and oneway go together smoohtly, yeah! But that's all I've done so far. I can say that the machining on the rest of the parts looks pretty good. Being my first NIB car in like 7 years though, I might be a bit easy to please!

Still, so far so good, very pretty looking parts, and I can't wait to get it finished and on the track! I've got a pass for racing a week from Saturday. Not sure where yet, but that will probably be it's debut.

Woo Hoo, just got my Standard kit today and this baby is gorgeous... a few questions though-
1. Do they all come partially assembled?
2. Why did they assemble the bulkheads to the chassis when I have to take it apart to do some chamfering, sanding and CA'in ?
3. It's prolly a good idea to get some 4-degree blocks huh?

The chassis are probably put together that way to double check for proper fitment and hole locations in the CF. If the holes are not machined within tolerances, it can play hell on the proper tweak of the car.

Easier to pack and ship that way too, I imagine. You don't have parts jiggling around and you don't have to worry about another parts bag.

An FAQ section pertaining to this kit in the site would be useful. The thrust bearing is something that I could only find out by reading through all the posts here from the beginning, which is what I did. Luckily, things are plenty slow at work right now!

I just finished installing the arms on the bulkheads but I'm short two set screws. I know it seems trivial, but I actually don't have the right size set screws in my pit box, so I need to contact Corally.

I did finish sealing the chassis though, and I sealed all the CF parts, just because I like doing it. Does anyone else have the urge to seal the counter sunk screw holes? I look in them and just see all the layers just waiting to fray. I know they probably won't but I'm just curious if anyone has managed to do this without offsetting the screws too much.
