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
Hmm alright then, i run stock and a front diff just feels too slow The T2 was awesome straight from the box, RDX has a lot to live up to!

Adding rear toe increases rear grip and causes understeer i thought....

Xray setup guide book seems to agree, it says.
Increases understeer;
More stable exiting on power at corner exit and braking;
Less chance of losing rear traction;
Decreases top speed.

Can we pre-order the new arms? If so, what's the best way to do it. I'd very much like to get on the list for two 4-packs of fronts and rears.

Hey, if you guys offer a service to mill 4mm chassis for use with the new bulkheads, would you be willing to also drill them for motor guards?

[QUOTE=JRX-S Bill]The Brian Lutz setup posted on the CorallyUSA website is pretty close to what I see at Stockton on many cars.

My set-up should work pretty good out there. Need to watch what kind of wheels you run so you know how many shims to run under the couplers. Ran narrow hexes on front with 2.5 shims for Jaco's. Everyone's setup is pretty close, just a few things different due to driver preference. If the track is flowing, it should be dialed. All our cars where great at the Novak.

Ran the new bulkhead and my car felt like it transitioned quicker. Will do some testing this week and see if there is actually a difference by running the new mount. As of the Birds, no one has ran them back to back.

SP12X RELEASE DATE

Car has been pushed back about 30 days. There are few things they wanted to implement before the release. No official release date due to this.
Any word on the thickness of the SP12X chassis?

Thanks in advance!

Yeah, that's correct and exactly as I said in my original post. The more a car pushes, the less steering it has. If you want the car to rotate better, you want MORE steering, not less.

To be honest, the setups for the car on the Corally US website site cover 100% of the situations (track, layout, tires, class). If you follow one of these setups, you are at least 95% there. Only minor, if any, tweaking to these setups would be necessary!

Corally RDX took 1,2,3 at the ROAR region 1 carpet champs this weekend in stock touring.

Probably it could be done at the same time. Mine was done that way for the Birds but it ripped through the slot from an impact.
