It's all good. If you want to read my reply, it is the first post just one page back on 274. Anything else let me know.

Run the lightest springs you can based on the racing you do. Indoor racing you can get away with lighter springs than outdoors due to the heat.

The lighter springs will fade at the end of the run. It is pretty much the same for 19T as well. You can go even stiffer sometimes like Purple/Purple for 19T or stiffer. Hope this helps.

Thanks allot Jeff. I appreciate the help.

Default Pistons and Holes diameter

Perhaps in low traction situations as well. You could do it though with lighter oil though with the 1.1 or 0.9 pistons.

I have been thinking a lot about dampening and the car seems to be reacting better and better the more we increase the "pack" of the dampening, mainly on asphalt. It should help with Carpet as well. You can go too far of course.

Someone at the recent ROAR Nationals talked to me about how my car was silent going around the track and pretty much zero tire squealing compared a majority of the other cars at the race.

I did not think much about the comment at the time but since talking to other drivers and they have tried either my setup, or just increasing the dampening themselves, it makes a lot of sense. Seems we have more test perhaps to go even faster.

I think the new pistons will be the way to go.

Thanks for your reply.

Sadly my testing time is almost zero, but...last Year I manage to come to your conclusion. The only think that makes me use bigger Holes are low grip situations (I need a "rounder" car) and...DOTS.
Since I still do not know much about sway bars I never use it and in tracks were I "have" to clip some Dots to be fast I do need the big holes since otherwise the car will get to "upset".
But sometimes I do not know what is best , since the bigger holes make the car less "reactive" and that is what I need a t technical tracks.

In my last race (which was "like" last Formula 1 circuit Magny Course - fast with low grip and 2 chicanes where we had to clip the dots, the larger holes where just perfect.

I believe in sharing information, but I am sure I am not a "top" driver, so ...this is only one imput.

So I'm reading that the 1.3mm pistons should be used mainly for bumpy or low grip tracks. So why are all the team drivers' setups on the Corally site showing them using the 1.3mm pistons on carpet w/foams? Well, not all drivers' setups, some are using the 3 hole Tamiya pistons. Where do those fall in the .9-1.1-1.3mm lineup?

After seeing the new Xray T2r I was thinking and wondering if Corally has any plains of making a lowered price non-cf version of the RDX?

33 front is good, but I've found 24 lb rears to work best.

I've been running 30's up front and 22's in the rear with the new outer position on the new rear arms. If you are running std arms without the extra long extension I would try 24lb rear springs.

There are new arms....

We will also send you some when you change the spelling to "Corally" in your signature.
