I know that some drivers have used both at various times in testing setup for different tracks and depending on whether they are running stock or 19t

Where did you get the idea they were lighter, I understood the improvement was they were different material and one piece.

Just wondering.

No not a great idea, not everyone needs every new part, and do you want a MKIII upgade (and 4 and 5 and on and on) whenever a new part is developed? I'm happy to buy the parts I think will help me, when they are released. I prefer the Corally release new parts program, to the sorry you have to replace your WHOLE car to get the latest performance approach.

Corally already upgrade the kits as parts are released. I have one of the first kit so a lot of the parts in current kits have been upgrade parts for me, I'm happy with that. I don't suffer from "must have car of the week syndrome" and only mildly from "must have the latest upgrade NOW syndrome".

I have to decide a new part will noticeibly improve my results/fun before I buy upgrades.

Cheers
Peter

Did you weigh it with the metal ring and screws bolted onto the black pulley? I think you will find the white pulley is lighter.

Yup, I had the small flat screws still in. I just disassembled the diff, took out the bearings and diff balls and threw them on the scale. After tomorrow I can take them apart and take pictures of them on the scales if you like? LOL! Man was that disappointing . I love the looks with the white pulley over the black. By the way are the aluminum knuckles still in stock and have you shipped any to comp products so my hobby store can get them in stock?

The package says lightweight on it, but I guess they never gave it a comparison to anything "technically" as to what it was lighter to. I was told that they were lighterthan the black old ones, but not significantly much!

Hey guys just want to Thank Edgar Figgaralos for setting up my Corally and Cris Tosolini, Jason Ertracter for giving parts I needed

The car was dialed. It's the best rc car I ever driven. I could'nt believe how easy it was to drive and the corner speed it carries was just awesome.

Thanks again guys

Need a good "Rubber" Setup for carpet

Hey All!

I'm looking for a good Rubber setup for carpet. I am using cs 27's and just tried Korey Harbke's setup that is posted on the Corally USA website and WOW! did it feel like it was on skates.

It felt like it pushed on entry... and the rear end would slide out on the exit.

Any suggestions would be appreciated...

THANKS!

Try Jason E's setup from Vegas. It should be a good starting point. I should have a good one pretty soon. Got a couple more things to fine tune and will post it when done.

Is there a general consensus on the best replacement body posts to use on the RDX? I am assuming everyone is like me and can't stand the threaded posts corally includes.

Heres the setup I use at my local carpet track. I believe it works very well. Give it a shot!

Everyone I know that does not have the RDX threaded posts are using the HPI ones.

Otherwise, I am using one of the RDX threaded posts as my 5th body post to support the back of the hood. It is screwed in place through the existing hole at the front of the top plate (where some install the tension pulley). The 5th post supports the body from the underside only (no hole required) and significantly helps stop the front wheelwell opening from cracking (from body flex). This is a carryover from my Losi days...Thanks to Matt Francis.
