Just to let you know, we are left in the dark at times as well... We had no clue about the new rear hubs they will be releasing especially for the new position on the rear arms untill Corally Intl announced it on their website.

We have made it known Corally is working on new arms for a while. They addressed the problem because people were complaining that the original ones were a little fragile. The new arms are stronger and offer more room for adjustment.

Corally was having some problems producing them for a while, so they are only available in small quantities. Corally USA recieved a a VERY SMALL BATCH. Production will pick up soon, and we'll be getting the new hubs in the states soon as well.

The new outer position will acomidate a entirely new rear hub carrier. When that pivot point it set out further, and the hub becomes narrower, it makes the rear end more stable. Very similar to the idea Losi had on the XXX-S (dont know if they do on the JRX-S though) with standard rear hubs and Offset ones. The offset ones (which are similar in concept with our currently available hubs) will free the car up. The Newer ones which are similar in concept to the Standard style Losi used to have will make the car more stable over bumps and long sweeping corners.

Ah, you guys are very forthcoming about information, I didn't mean to insinuate otherwise. There are plenty of people who are fans and the company that aren't privy to the information the team folks are, so we rely on you guys to keep us in the know. Or, going to Corally's international site. :-D

As an additional setting option the rear wishbones feature an added outer hingepin position placing it further into the wheel. This allows less chassis roll resulting in higher cornering speed. New narrow uprights (0 degree toe, #79299) are required to use the additional outer hingepin setting option. These as well as other available narrow rear uprights are to be used with standard width hexes only. The existing rear uprights can be used in the inner position only.
So, these new 0 degree narrow uprights (79299) are different than the new 0 degree narrow uprights (79298) that were just released?

If they're putting the arms into new kits, I guess I can understand why they had such a small batch to send to their USA distributor.

No problem, man, I know I'm a pain in the ass. You guys can all jump me if I ever attend a big race. :-)

I love hearing all about how the team drivers are having a bunch of fun with the new arms, but how there's not many in this batch.

Well, not very many people have the arms yet. Mine will be here soon and I'll do some testing. I'll let everyone know what I think of them.

None of the kits we have in stock have the new arms. They are still the standard arms. I am not sure when we will start receiving kits with the new arms.

I don't even have the new arms on my car.

Default NEED HELP PLZ

Hi all,

Ran the car on the weekend , Tarmac with rubber tires, first time i've tried this. I had terrible mid corner push and need help !!

Set-up

Front

17lb spring ,30wt oil ,Tamiya 3hole pistons mounted 2 holes in at the top and all the way out at the bottom.

One-way used

Upper links mounted bottom row 3rd hole in

1.5deg negative camber

4deg caster blocks

Rear

19LB springs ,30wt oil ,Tamiya 3hole pistons mounted all the way out top and bottom

Diff ... set as loose as i could without any slippage on track

Upper links std. position on the hub 2nd hole in bottom row on the tower

2deg hubs used

1deg neg camber

Track was high grip i'm told and it was pretty hot for over here so i was using take off premounted cs 27's . to me they didn't seem to go off through the run so i assumed they weren't over heating

Like i said i have terrible mid corner steering it just seems to take an age to turn, although initial steering is pretty fierce. Sweeping bends are no problem at all, it's the slower 180's that cause the problem when i just have to wait while the car slows enough to go around

Any help please ??
