Wow, the word ASS comes to mind.

Eveyone is not as perfect as you are, obviously. We should all shut up now, and leave these boards to the Pros, because, they never hit anything, and everything they say is the word carved into stone.

Get a life.

I think he was just trying to say to take info found on the net at your own risk unless you know the source. I dont think he was trying to project the attitude that you took it as.

He does make a point though. The car isnt going to break if you dont crash. I have only broken my car a couple times, usually in practice because of other cars on the track.. is the car fragile? I suppose thats all relative to who is driving it. Could it be stronger?.. anything could LOL... It is a great car..

There is a new kydex bumper from what I understand. and if my info is wrong, the template to make one out of a buds tc3 bumper is on the front page of www.corallyusa.com //That should help a ton on breakages.

Thanks Ray. In a perfect world, none of us would ever crash. The hits that I had that broke parts were glancing blows and minor hits, at best. In 25 years of racing R/C cars, I have not ever seen parts breakage with such light contact with ANY car. I don't believe it is the problem of the car or the driver, but rather right side CVD clearance issues magnified by using multiple thrust cone washers without extra shims to widen the front end.

A word of caution based on experience never hurt anyone, but some people like to use discussion forums to flex internet muscles. He has 17 posts here and most of them are inciting confrontations. Go figure.

i kinda noticed that as well, Apex...

i had that problem in Vegas, and i think the cvd issue was mine, too. i was using the 6 washers in the front, and no spacing on the arms... glanced the inside of a turn, trying to run a tight line, and... snap. upon inspection when i got home and saw all the info, i can see where the blades were contacting the screw... doh!

So, are you insinuating that the RDX is only to be driven by the very best drivers who are capable of almost never making a mistake or hitting anything? If that's the case, I'd like to know now so I can find a car made by a company that doesn't cater to elitists.

Idiot.

Since the 6 washer thing is a "hack," I can't really fault Corally if it's causing some other issue. It wasn't part of their engineering, right?

I'm due to rebuild my diffs, and had intended to try the 6 washer trick, but the last thing I need is more breakage. I've got two 1MM shims in the front, so hopefully that gives me enough clearance.

I mounted the new kydex bumper last night, and it's wonderful. I compared it to the one I tried to make from the template with a dremel, and it was pretty shameful. Thanks for getting that out the door SRC.

Syndrome-with two 1mm shims on the hingepin blocks-you wont bottom out the CVD even with 6-bevel washers.

FWIW, I mic'd the 2 cone washers I took out of the front diff (4 remain), and the depth/height was 1.3mm. I was surprised it was that much, but that does make sense. With the added 1mm shims, the CVD clearance problem should be moot, regardless if you are using 4 or 6 spring cone washers.

And yes, it is not a Corally problem, but one derived from a modification. Even the smallest of mods have repercussions.

Just put in your city normally and pick a state. Shoot an email to [email protected] to let them know your exact shipping address and it will be fine. We are updating our system so hopefully international shipping will be easier in the future.
