Ordered a 4mm chassis from Specialzed R/C 2 weeks ago. How slow are they to ship stuff out?

If I place an order with Corally USA on Friday, I always havemy stuff by Monday. Otherewise, it normally takes 2-3 business days for me to get stuff...always very fast.

That is a popular item and more than likely they were out of stock on it when it was ordered and they are waiting for a new supply of chassis. But also remember that if you ordered it 2 weeks ago, it could have gotten momentarily lost with all the holiday shipping. This time of year creates a mess for shipping. Either way I would call Corally in the morning! They'll be glad to help you out!

Hey guys, I need some help selecting a RDX chassis. I want to primarily race it on a carpet road course with rubber tires, but would also like to have the ability race it on a carpet road course with foams. Can i get some input as to which RDX kit to buy (US or UK) and if i need a seperate chassis for each. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Get a carpet spec, and grab a front one way, and the black spring set for rubber tire racing as well. The thicker upper deck helps a bit. The stock main chassis is great for almost anything. The 4 deg caster blocks that come with the carpet spec kit are a good medium for anything as well.

Just built my new kit. Everything went great. One question..

There were several 3mm aluminum spacers included but were not used per the instructions. What are they for?

Thanks.

I still haven't answered that question myself . The only thing I can think of is putting them behind the bottom shock ends if you run the arms full back front and rear as changing the wheelbase changes the angle of the shocks.

I use them for armature spacers on my lathe...

It depends on the wheelbase...Yes it can hit. I put 2mm spacer on the top and bottom when running the wheelbase that close to the camber links.

Similar to the ones used to mount the front lower shock. They may be used for the rear lower shock mount when using the inner holes. ???

Well, considering we were sold out and the ones we got in had some errors and had to be fixed, we are still waiting as well. The holidays backs things up as I am sure you are aware since many business close this time of year.
