I feel the new arms are stronger... they are a touch heavier though. They are muuuuuuuuuuch stiffer too.

Thx for the setup Sushi Boy.

RDX TQ by more than a lap in 19turn A main at our local track last night! We had a large turnout for 19t, A and B main. This was the second day that my son has put the car on the track. He went on to win the A main.

This is the only locally raced RDX in the Mesa, AZ area that we know of. We do have a buddy Patrick from Texas who is here temporarily racing an RDX.

We are verrry happy with the performance of this car. Thanks to the Corally customer service for getting parts out at the last minute.

Try Jeff Browns latest setup on the corally USA website. It's the best starting point I've found for running with a spool on asphalt.

Jeff did update his posted setup with what he changed for the Asphalt Nats at Speedworld last week.

Springs: 22 (front)/17 (rear)
one red o-ring (instead of two)

Default leaky shocks

I need some tips on how to prevent corally shocks from leaking from their cap.

f.Y.I, i installed all new bladders last weekend and i had two shocks start to leak from their cap this weekend. When i put the shocks together i was very carefull to make sure they were all built with equal rebound and no air bubbles.
Furthermore, when i took the leaky shocks apart to repair them i noticed that the bladders had become very swollen and were difficult to get back in. please help.
Thanks

Make sure your shock collar isn't preventing the cap from screwing down all the way.

Here's how I build the Corally shocks.

After you drain out the old oil...

1. Pull the shock shaft all the way down. Fill the shock with desired oil till you see a little dip in the surface at the top. It should be nearly at the top, but not quite.

2. Slowly bring the piston to the top of the oil, but not through the top. Then bring it back down to get rid of air bubbles. They'll float to the top. Repeat till there are no more bubbles.

3. Push the shock shaft in about 1/3 of the way. Place the bladder on top of the oil. Pull the shaft down to create suction, which holds the bladder on. Screw cap on.

4. Shock should rebound a very small amount and slowly. If it rebounds fully and fast, you have too much oil in the shock.
