dang... missed the memo again!!!!

the setup on my car is pretty much like that one now, with the exception of im still at the 40wt rear oil.

i had been running a copper front bar and 36lb front springs, maily to combat the extra front bite i get out of the GQ tires i have been running.

Default Stockton setup

The Brian Lutz setup posted on the CorallyUSA website is pretty close to what I see at Stockton on many cars.

Today, we got our first chance to use the ROAR tech box that measures all the dimensions of 1/10th scale TCs. It works great...depending on your perspective.

Example tech issue: With a 1 degree spacer on each side in the back of the rear roll blocks to create toe-in, I could not get my car under 190mm width. Had to use narrow hexes to make it legal. Will likely switch to optional narrow rear hubs if they become available before the Nats.

I don't expect that the 4.0mm chassis will be necessary for Stockton. X-long rear mount shock extensions sound like a good bet.

Welcome to California!

Yep I had to use narrow hexes in the rear adn up front as well (running 2 spacer chingaderas up front) to get mine to roll in and out of the texh box.

Hey guys, I just spoke with Jeff at Corally USA and ordered the New Motor Mount Bulkhead that moves the motor closer to the centerline of the car (they have only 1 left for those that are interested).

It looks like Corally is working on a price to allow those of us with the 4mm chassiss to send it in and get it recut to accept the new motor mount. Corally would like the chassis sent in in batches though so they can do a bunch of them at once rather than one at a time. This would most likely keep down the cost for the service as well.

I'm sure Jeff will be posting on this soon. But for all those that would be interested in sending your chassis in to be recut, post it here or PM me. I would have no problem keeping a list for Corally of who would be interested. We can even agree on a date to send them in (I want mine done ASAP )

By the way, you will also be able to buy a new 4mm chassis with this modification but I beleive they are still several weeks off!

Thanks!!

So, even using the IB4200's etc you think there's a need to get the motor further inboard ??

I've got mine balancing on pin's now, i bet it's not more than 1 or 2deg's off level !! (motor side high, so obviously the heavy side) guess moving the motor in might correct this alittle.

But i'm not sure it's NEEDED ?? please put me right guys my RDX just dosen't have enough hop-ups on her.Just going to well as she is

Merciless, do you have a good carpet with rubber setup using a one-way? Where in your opinion is the best shop online in the UK to buy Corally spares from Going to run one as my outdoor car this season i think, but give it a trial by fire and see how well it does indoors, can compare it to my previous xray 05 and my current T2.

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.....


I happen to have several black spring sets in stock now...can be contacted at 412-561-1615

Humm sorry haven't used the one-way as i'm a firm believer in a front diff on carpet.I would think the Steve lissamore DMS, with a one-way would be safe possibly going to a 19 front spring ....... microtechracing.com are a great place for the parts in the UK although the new arms , news rear shock mounts and bulkheads don't appear to have made it over the water

Just got my hands on a friends T2 for the first time today to have a look at and must say it looks nice, not nice enough to move me away from the RDX yet though

cut the shock shafts, now running the Daygar Novak setup, but with stiffer rear springs...wow, great car...so smooth...

Didnt seem to rotate much, if I add more rear toe, that should help, correct?

Broke an arm, but I deserved it

No, adding rear toe will increase rear traction causing the car to push more/rotate less!
