Before I drilled my 0.9 into 1.3 Corally pistons this past weekend, I was using Tamiya white 2-holes pistons. I measured the size, and it's between a 1.05 and 1.1mm. Tamiya pistons are also thinner so you'll need to shim it correctly, and also ironic is that Tamiya hingepin .7mm shim fits perfect in diameter and thickness. Also another note is that the bevel on the edge of the Tamiya pistons are similar to Corally ones.

I haven't tried to bore out the Tamiya 3-holes to 1.3mm, probably will try that on the asphalt car. But for carpet foams, my bored out 1.3mm Corally pistons worked a lot better than Tamiya stock 2-holes.

Jeff-

My post was to show that the 2.4 chassis had so much flex/grip that It was actually slowing the lap times down. The car felt better, natural..it had more grip, but the times didn't reflect what I was feeling.

I trust ya...You get to test in hotter temps than I do.

Exactly....... I never said it was the best for all temps. If the track is below 110 deg I would DEFINATELY run a stock chassis.

I have noticed guys will thin chassis as well suffer a bit in the cool temps with the flex. I tell ya though, when it pushes 140+ no one can touch them.

Alright guys........ the site was moved to a better server yesterday along with being fully updated for shopping. You should experience faster browsing as I believe we have. If you place an order and it mentions about security, everything is taken care off so click YES and continue to check out.

Any problems or questions please let us know. Thanks!

I am just glad we are on the sme page with this... LOL I hope I don't have to race when its pushing 140! It has been close here the past few weekends High I saw the track was about 127-128.

But that is why I got the 2.4 chassis...So I could try it here and see how it worked. It worked too good....

Corally had a great race yesterday. RDX's filled 5 of 10 spots in the Stock Foam A-main at the Summer Sizzler and 2 of 8 spots in the 19T A-main (all mains except stock foam A were 8 cars).

I finished 3rd in 19t after coming back from dead last after a real rough start. Thanks to Brad Johnson for a great race in the last 2 minutes, that was fun!

T1Raycer- My setup on the website is a good starting point as well. Both mine and Robs setups are good starting points. They are pretty similar.
