No one else has been able to win on road rubber tires races either, its not just corally. Tamiya has possibly the best driver in the world collecting all the onroad rubber tire race wins, with the exception of the recent andy moore win at worlds.

BUt in modified, I am worried about the rear CF brace snapping and ruining my day. It does seem to be exposed and dont know if it can stand up to some one hitting me from behind into the CF brace...
I ran Modified for a year and a half and never broke the rear bodypost plate. I am still amazed how people can break it.

Hey Jeff -

It takes TALENT..! PURE TALENT..! I'll tell ya....

I broke mine.... I clipped the right front going into the right hand sweeper at FULL SPEED spun my car around 180 degrees and slammed -rear end- first at the end of the straight and that was the end of my body post plate....

I made a replacement out of black delrin... (I'll show it to you in Vegas) and it works GREAT!! - (Plus -it'll probably NEVER Break! )

TALENT..! PURE TALENT..! I'll tell ya!

The early rear body mounting plates could be broken. Alot of racers glued two together. But Corally redesigned the plate, and it's stronger plus gives u multiple locations for the body posts.

Okay......

I'm considering leaving the HPI camp in favor of a belted car. Convince me why I should go with the RDX vs the T2 from X-Ray. I run stock on carpet only.

ThanX!

x-ray will replace their T2 in a few months if their follow thier trend. The RDX has been out for a long time and will likely continue to just be modified rather than replaced. ANd you can buy one arm that works for all 4 corners of the car. And you can talk to Jeff and the gang right here if you ever need help.

Default One good reason

One good reason.... I've seen T2 owners DESTROY their outdrives due to poor design.

If you look at the T2 design the outdrive has zero support on the outer edge of the outdrive - therefore leaving it exposed to being ruined upon impact with a wall.

(I just saw a guy at my local track do this 2 weeks ago during practice - and he was done before the race even started... he said it was his 3rd one....within 6 months)

If you look at the RDX design, the outer edge of the outdrive is supported by the bearing.... you'll never have the problem the T2 has with this.

Default another good reason

Another good reason......

Go to your refrigerator.....

..... get out the big "TUB-O-BUTTER... (I like Country Crock!)

Now... get at knife out of the drawer and warm it up under scorching HOT Water......

THEN---- stick the knife in the butter.... close your eyes and cut the HOT Knife through the TUB-O-BUTTER.....

And Now You Can Imagine what an RDX Feels like on the track!!!!


SMOOOOTH AS A "HOT" KNIFE IN A TUB-O-BUTTER!!

I just ordered a few things through the corally site for the first time. The pages kept saying shipping will be added. I thought there would be a last page to know how much and to choose a type/price level of shipping, but the very last page still said shipping will be added. I figure the shipping will be fair, but how can I know how much ti will be? Did I do something wrong? I was hoping to upgrade the shipping to make sure the items arrived before the weekend. Is there any way to do that now?

Also, I tried to get some of the x-long rear shock extensions and they said no longer available. Is this correct? Is there anywhere else to get them? Thanks guys. You always rock!
