Funny...I gave up on the too short Corally wrench for the RDX's droop screws and ended up using the longer Integy wrench which was easier to manipulate in the tight quarters.

In the future, I intend to tap those droop screw holes in the arms. Too hard to cut threads with a droop screw.

I use a regular 3mm buttonhead for my droop screws. Easier to reach and crank on.

Is there a part number for the wheel hexes? Some of mine are breaking where the screw is and I'd like to get some replacements.

Thanks!

Make sure you are not cranking all the way down on the screws as they do not need it. There should be a gap where the screw goes through.

What would be the purpose of the narrow hexes?

If you add alot of toe or move the arms out with spacers you can use the narrow hexes to keep your width 190mm.
I hope that helps,

The Narrow hex's make the car more reactive in my opinion. I only run he narrow hex's anymore. I think the last time I used the standard wide hex's was last summer, very green low traction carpet, with no groove layed down, on rubber tires lol. It made the car much more stable and easier to drive.

The First thing I bought for the car was the hard bumper. So far there are just 2 people including myself that run corally's in our area. Tom Robertson helped me put a set-up on it and it runs like a beauty and handles like a dream.

Thanks for the information. Like Jeff Brown said, I was cranking down all the way and that's what broke them I believe.

Edit: $18 per pair!! Wow, any place cheaper??

Should you use them on all 4 corners or just the fronts?

Me too. It's nice, especially when you have a 2 mm wrench that's got a really long shank!

When you use a regular screw, do you have to round off the end of it? It seems to dig into the chassis and leave a nice little hole.

Yeah mine scratched the chassis where it contacts too, but a normal droop screw does that too.

Try AB Charles and Sons, and ask to talk Jim. Here's the # 412 561 3068. They are the largest Corally dealer in the northeast, and he usually has really good prices on stuff too.
