Kevin - PM back at ya.

Started building my kit over the weekend and the fit/finish is very nice! The arms swing on the inner hingepins with no binding at all. I just paid attention to the parts and shaved off the extra plastic from the tree's. The dif went together very nice and it's nice to see a few extra parts in each bag in case the carpet decides to swallow a screw or set screw.

I do seem to have a small problem in one of the bags though. On pg 15 of the manual, the long jointball that screws into the steering block, I only got one. I got one long one and one small to use for that step (5.5mm vs 7.5) Do I contact Corally USA on this? I can't have just one wheel steering! I need one of the 79265.

P.S. Good luck Jeff Cuffs at snowbirds, you were smoking on your TQ run at DC this saturday. Thanks for letting me look at your car.

Thanks,
JF

John,

I was a off the pace this weekend in Sedan, but after I put the set-up Kevin was running-my lap times dropped a lot-easily 0.2 to 0.3 per lap on a 8 sec lap. Thats a lot. Took me a lot of laps to get used to it-it has a lot of steering-especially if youve got small tires on it (2.20"). If you run it on 2.30" tires-its quite easy to drive actually. Cushy is a good way to describe it.

I would highly recommend you buy the Rubberneck bumper and if youve got 2x4 barriers-then the BRP TC3 bumper mod too. Last-get the alum steering knuckles.

Heres one bright spot-whatever fast lap i turned early in a run-I could still turn it at the end. I think that means the drivetrian and car are quite efficient.. By comparison-the previous week running my TBevoIII-lap times would drop off hard at end of run.

I've noticed that the car stays efficient, as well. Ray, does the BRP bumper help substantially?

Yes-the BRP/Rubberneck set-up does help. I think Kevins breakage went dwon to none after he installed his.

Yea the rubberneck bumper is pretty dam tough..... getting used to the car in the first heat....I smacked the pipe so hard that it sounded like a fire cracker went off .....the car drove away perfect......no breaks the whole day until the thrust bearing gave out , I poped in a copper xray one , Is this what everyone is using as the replacement?.........other than that .....I was actually faster with the RDX almost straight out of the box, than with my long time (perfect set-up for the track) TC-3..............

The low hinge pin blocks say they have a quantity of 1...does that mean that one comes in a package or one pair or one set?
