I only place phone orders and never had a problem. Infact, when you call you typically get Jeff Brown on the phone who is always very helpfull.

Yeah Jeff, I must agree with you. But then again I drove Tamiyas for many many years, but have only had the Pro4 for less than a season. I know your talking about shaft vs belt and I agree its a time for something different!

See ya in Cleveland!?!?

Can you PM me the #? I would love to call and make sure I get my mistake fixed. Just to be clear this is in no way a knock on Corally . . .I just was asking for clarification. THX

The new NorCal Hobbies in Union City had a set of them hanging on their Corally parts wall this past weekend.

Their number is 1-877-234-6229.

As the drivers convert over to the new arms, you should be able to find used ones pretty soon.

Andrew,

Go to www.corallyusa.com for the number. I have not gotten anyone but Jeff to date. He must live there.

Sorry Bill and Andrew, those are the std extensions.

Andrew, use the new rear arms and then you don't need the x-long extensions.

Default NEW RDX???

Someone posted a thread about a new RDX debuting at the Fair Nürnberg 2007 in Germany. Who knows what it will be like but I hope they don't "f" it up because it works great now. It may just be an update. I've only been driving it for a couple of months and it drives flawlessly on asphalt and carpet. Great all-around car.

But...there are a few things that could make it even better:

1. Two-piece bulkheads for easy diff replacement
2. Easier access to rollcenter blocks
3. Maybe take advantage of the new low profile servos and make more room for electronics - center steering
4. Ditch the torx screws
5. Ditch the body posts

What do you guys think? This is just for fun because I just invested a bunch of loot in this chassis and I hope they don't change it...but you never know.

I agree with all of these except the torx screws. I actually like them. I would also suggest:

- Standard Turnbuckles
- Heavier duty ball cups
- Shocks that are less likely to leak
- Thumbscrews for the battery strap
- Replace the problematic circlips with something else if possible

But that is just me. I love my RDX though.

I personally hate the torx screws - at the moment i carry Allen drivers for the TRF, Torx for the RDX and Imperial for RC12 L4, ive put allen screws on the RDX so ive less tools to carry.

Id ditch the battery strap and use tape - its not that bad once you get used to it.

Proper turnbuckles would be nice.

2 piece bulkheads - definately!

That's funny, I replaced everything you just suggested except the battery strap...can't find the right thumb screw.

Lunsford ti turnbuckles
RPM ball cups
Tamiya shocks - but I did get the RDX ones to work - new bladders
Eliminated the c-clips by notching the hinge pins with a Dremel and used the set screws - had to ream out the arms a little to free them up

Oh yea, and at home ive got a pic of one of the Ahoniemi brothers car at the euros - its an update and appears to have a different chassis without battery strap and a totally different steering setup - the servo is rotated 180 degrees round so the servo saver is pointing in towards the belt and the steering uprights are different!

I would luv to see that pic JAY. I tried it myself and it would work perfectly except you need a smaller servo saver...hits the topdeck. I shaved the top of the servo saver but now it looks too weak.
