3mm on the shaft and eyelet. You can use the stock spring cups then.

Well, depends what you define as the "stock" corally pistons. The kits used to contain 0.9mm pistons but for last 6+ months they have had the 1.3mm pistons.

The 3 hole Tamiya pistons are 3 small holes, around a #58 drill bit i think. So that is no where near 3 holes of the 1.3mm which is like a #54 if you drilled it. If anything you would take the 0.9mm pistons and add a 3rd hole.

Or take the 0.9mm pistons and drill them to a #56 size. I think we need more options in Touring Cars. haha.

Follow that? haha.

well, i took my rdx on its first outing, and without knowing exact setup, i can say i am impressed - other than the fact i had a 6.5mm front ride height i was too scared to take down the shafts too much.

i am going to talk to larry of team tamale, to see if he can make a lowered shock collar - he makes them for the xray, but the eyelets are just a little bigger on the xray

i am waiting on the black spring set and the aluminum steering blocks are on back order (does anyone know where i can get them?), i bought the lowered shock tower, and have so beefed up arms on order too.

all i can say is wow, my first time out with a dayger/mcgreevy combo setup it felt pretty good....not great, but i didn't expect it too - especially with my ride height being jacked....

all this to say...i am a happy corally convert.....

Hey Guys that are heading to carpet nats....

I just got done running at our Region 11 regionals, we had it setup just like Carpet Nats. Same Carpet, Similar layout, and everyone used jack the gripper. I ended up with a pretty funky setup that worked REALLY good. Consisted of a 14.5lb rear spring, 33 front, Standard shock mount in the rear (not the extension) Ultra low roll centers in the front, standard in the rear, Jaco Dbl Pink/Dbl Pink Orange tires, 45-60wt oil etc... if you want more details pm me and ill give you the setup sheet. Very good in 19T and Stock, might be a lil soft for mod though.

Might wanna give it a shot!
Brett

Glitching was really bad today too...ruined my racing Didnt run the RDX as I was in a hurry and didnt want to rush cutting the shock shafts.

I put the spare arms and t2 shock towers under your door.

Or.... you could ask one or more of the Corally drivers from the host track (Stockton RC Raceway) who have been tuning the setup for months.

The one from the Novak race. I have since gone to 50 wt rear oil and it feels good so far, but I have to do more testing to see if it's faster. I also want to try 4 degree caster blocks with this setup but a local teammate of mine has 'em and is holding them hostage! j/k justin

As for the handshake...didn't you get the memo?
