Thanks,I took the front end apart to install the bearings and holders and they fit right in! According to the directions the bulkhead had to be ground a little.That's what I get for reading directions!
I have another question.I received a set of Tamiya shocks with the car.I noticed they are a bit shorter than the RDX shocks.Is there an adapter I ahve to use to mount these? Thanks.

I plan to run the Corally shocks,but,like I said, I noticed the Tamiya shocks are visibly shorter and I wondered how they mounted to the car.

Default Spacers for toe-in/out

On the toe-out adjustments on the front of the car, it is unclear to me in the instructions whether to just add a .5 spacer to the 0.8 spacer to get .5 toe-out, or remove the 0.8 spacer and replace with a .5 spacer?

Well, I am assuming you mean arm sweep....... which would be adding a 0.5mm shim in addition to the 1.0mm shim all the way around. If you want toe-out then do it with tie rods, not shims.

The spacers are only used to adjust toe in the rear. For front toe you should just adjust your turnbuckles to adjust toe in/out. I belive it is commonly accepted that what is called a .5 spacer is used to achieve about .5* (in the rear) although it is actually .4 mm thick. To get 1*, use one of the thicker spacers that are actually .8 mm thick. The only purpose for spacers in the front is to widen the car. 2 thick washers (1.6 mm technically) under each of the four front roll blocks is pretty standard. Someone please correct me if I am mistaken.

You are correct. There is also arm sweep in the front end which is created with washers.

1 deg = .8mm and 1/2 deg = .4mm washer. They do the 0.5 and 1mm shims to keep it simple.

For carpet, is it standard practice to add 2x1mm spacers to each of the low roll blocks or is a single 1mm spacer (as specified in the manual) the right way to go?

I am using the new arms if that effects the answer.

Heh, XRay is testing a new T2 designed specifically for carpet. Lowered topdeck and bulkheads, thick chassis... What's it been, 6 months?

Spacing the front arm's with 2 1mm spacers at the roll block's , what does that do?

I have been told the same thing by someone I trust to know these types of things. Again, glad to be with Corally!

Me with my keen eyes spotted something.
Corally just came out with a tweakboard. They also made a animation of it (you can see it on their website), and look what is standing on the board...
(it's is bit blur, but it's something)
