Clearly the RDX is capable of competing at all levels in its current form. So, please don't take this is as criticism, it's simply a wish list of things I'd like to see. Feel free to chime in with your own ideas. Corally seems to listen to the feedback they get from racers at all levels, which is totally cool.

Wish List
1. Stronger arms (in progress)
2. Shortened shock shafts for use with lowered front tower
3. New bulkheads with "easy access" to the diffs and layshaft. This is the only thing about the T2 I truly envy. (Convenience only)
4. Longer kingpin screws for the front steering blocks.
5. Color coded springs (I know, that's a lame one)
6. Some method of protecting the diff pulley from rear impacts. The retaining rings shatter nicely when hit just right.
7. A bulkhead to move the motor closer to the center of the car. Possibly combined with #3.

Anti-Wish List
1. Any kind of "multi-flex" stuff that's heralded as the One True Thing(tm). (Unless it's marketed as "multi-tweak" and clearly intended as a joke.)

Post bulkhead

there is currently a new rear bulkhead available that moves the motor in closer to center but requires the chassis to be milled out. Perhaps Jeff Brown can update on chassis that are already milled.

The Corally International website is indicating that the new arms are now available, as well as the other hopups recently announced. Hopefully they're on their way, huh? :-)

Hey Jeff,

Very good If they were to produce the "easy access" bulkheads they'd make a mint we'd ALL need to have them, you just know it !!

If there RD department were to pick this up they could cancel this yrs work it's all on there i'd be SO happy with that little lot

Regarding the new bulkhead that moves the motor in closer to the center line of the chassas....does anyone know if it is made out of the same duraluminum are the rest of the stock aluminum components or is it normal aluminum? Not sure if there is even a difference between stock Corally Aluminum parts and regular aluminum other than the color.

Is it the same shade of grey as the rest of the stock components?

Heres one for the wishlist, a way to adjust lower arm positions on the bulkheads & also rear toe without major car disassembly. If this were addressed, the car would be truly perfect.

To my knowledge it is of the same material as the present material Corally uses now for the rear bulkhead. but requires the chassis to be milled to make it fit properly

ok, how much do i need to take off the shock shaft to run the lowered tower??

I tried the associated spirng retainers, no good...

Running the stock tower at the moment.

Also, I have ordered some tamiya pistons, but could i just make my own from the stock corally piston? What is the hole dia that I would need.
