What extras will i need? Currently my list is-

Black spring set
Spool and pulley
0 degree castor blocks
2 degree castor blocks
6 degree castor blocks
1,3mm roll bar Front and rear
1.9mm roll bar fron and rear

Can any of you suggest anyfing else i will need? Soory about all the questions.

All help is much appreciated!
Since you are in the UK you will obviously be on asphalt rubber tire. The 1.9mm Bars are included with the kit. The white pulleys and 3700 compatible chassis is included as well.

You seem to have a good list started for option parts, just remove the 1.9mm bars since they are included and perhaps add the 1.6mm bars. Obviously get some extra suspension arms and steering knuckles. You will also want to get extra king pin screws as this is a specialty part on the RDX.

Yer sorry about that.You were correct Jeff i will be on rubbers on ashpalt and carpet.

I have about everything then do i? Ill get the 1.6mm bars instead then.Is it worth gettin the alloy steering knuckles? I take it you loose kingpin screws then?

Is the silver spring kit diffrent to the black one? or is it jst a diffrent colour? And also is it woth getting 2 spring sets incase i ever need to run same springs all round?

64 dp spur gear? Corally one ok? or is it abit crappy?

Thanks for the help lads.

DOUBLE WINS ON THE STRIP

Trying to get settled back into routine after spending seven days in Las Vegas! Corally definately had a successful weekend a strong presence as Corally drivers challenged for TQ in just about every class and pushed the wins in a lot as well.

In the end we walked out with Double Victories. The first coming from Jeff Cuffs' fine performance in the Stock Touring Foam class. Cuffs' was simply following Peter and the door swung open through the infield as Peter went a little wide. Cuffs' jumped on the opening and it was bold but paid off. He never looked back and held onto his straightaway lead till the end.

The second win coming from Jason Ertrachter in the Stock Touring Rubber class. Jason also was able to TQ this class setting him up for the domination of the A-main final!

CONGRATULATIONS TO BOTH DRIVERS ON THEIR WINS AT THE 1ST ANNUAL IIC FROM LAS VEGAS!! Report and pictures to come on www.corallyusa.com

the spur in the kit is a 48p, and those Corally spurs are great! nice and durable, quiet too, with good pinions. i generally use their 104T 64p.

the alloy steering blocks are nice, because they are more durable. they will add a tiny bit of slack in the suspension over time, tho.

the silver springs are the harder set, i think from 26-42 lbs? the blacks are 12-24, if i remember right. seems like with the forward weight bias, i hardly ever use the same springs front and rear, so 1 set each works well, usually.

i havent lost a kingpin screw yet, but they are unique to the car, so i got an extra set, just in case.

Wes

Well...... you can consider the alloy knuckles in the future. I think you can get more beneficial items in the beginning for the $50 they cost.

You won't loose kingpin screws if you put some loctite on them. Just always good to have spares so you are not out for the weekend if you do loose one.

Silver Spring set is for carpet racing pretty much....... 26lb and up. (foam)

Black Spring set is for asphalt........ 12lb to 24lb.

Corally gears are super nice. I run them in my car. (48 pitch)

Thanks Wes! Good to meet you too. There were a lot of people I met out there that I talked with over the phone. You, Monte, Dan Hartman, Allen Hewitt, Al Bella, Keith Billanti (Where's my springs? ) and probably more that I can't remember at the moment.

See you guys at the next one sometime.

Jeff

You don't need much when the car is dialed out of the box.

Actually...... since they switched to the 1.3mm Pistons I believe they swapped to 30wt oil. Which is a good idea with the big pistons. I would probably start with 30wt or 40wt and go from there.

I just got my Carpet Spec and it looks awsome!
I was looking for some help in ordering an initial batch of spare parts that I should carry as no Hobby store for 100+ miles carries Corally . Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Well, there are some shops listed in Canada on the Dealer Page. They would probably Mail Order for you. You can purchase online as well from Stormer Hobbies, Speedtech R/C and many others.

Parts....... well, depends on the budget. Absolute must have parts are spare arms, knuckles, king pin screws, hingepin clips, bodypost plate, shocktower, plastic blades, ceramic diff balls, spare belts.
