Specialized R/C is a brand that's apparently run by the same guys as Corally USA. They create parts for the RDX (and others, it seems) like the 4mm chassis, and this new motor mount. I haven't heard anything about Corally producing this piece directly. I'm sure the SRC guys would be kind of bummed if they do, since they probably paid a bit of money to get this latest batch machined.

Regardless, if you feel you need it, Jeff said they will ship them worldwide. It moves the motor in by 5mm (closer to the centerline of the car) which helps with overall balance, and apparently makes the car transition faster. Since Tosolini just used it as part of his winning setup for the nats, I imagine everybody will think they need one.

Personally, since I'm running brushless, I'd like to get some of the motor weight toward the center so I don't have to load up the right side with weights to balance things out. I don't think I'm good enough to notice the other changes just yet.

The heatsink is bigger because the motor is moved inwards by 5mm. The larger heatsink is just because there's more material there than the stock bulkhead to accommodate the change of motor position.

Many people won many big races prior to this new bulkhead being released. I would say the car is just fine without it, though having it certainly won't hurt anything, and might help a little depending on your needs.

Here's a picture of the bulkhead to make it a little more clear on how it's different.

So I assume Corally will be making their own version ?
Specialized RC is the US Importer for Corally products. The DBA name is CorallyUSA. Any products under SRC are designed and developed by us. International orders can be placed for the SRC line of products. We do not ship Corally products internationally as there are other importers. SRC can be picked up by distributors and/or dealers overseas as well.

You can't do it by yourself, you have to send the chassis back to corally to cut some material out to make more space for the motor mount, then you can just install it.

Read back a few pages, ppl were talking about this.

Default Snap ring pliars

Where do I find a set of miniature snap ring pliars to change out the thrust bearings?
