In my opinion, Tamiya shocks are some of the best made and I've seen them on all types of cars. I'm using MSX kit shocks.

Carpet:
front 60wt Tamiya 3-hole pistons with AE purple springs
rear 40wt Tamiya 3-hole pistons with AE blue springs

Asphalt:
front 40wt Tamiya 3-hole pistons with Tamiya white springs
rear 35wt Tamiya 3-hole pistons with Tamiya blue springs


BUT...the RDX shocks work well too if you take care of them. I guess I'm just lazy.

Do any of you guys know where i can get my mits on a 4mm chassis?
Currently, Corally USA is out of stock and probably wont have any available till next week and i need one for this weekend. Although, they gave me the number to AB-Charles and they appear to have them but their selling them for $150. So if anybody knows a shop that has one in stock at the normal going rate please let me know.
Thank you,
Chris

This is just an update to a running question I and others have had about alternatives to the corally narrow hexes. I ordered and have been using the T2 standard hexes. They measure only 4.5 mm opposed to the corally narrow 4.0 mm. THe upside is that I can crank down on them tighter than you would ever think necessary and they don't snap. I've been running them for about 3 weeks with a full days worth of practice on labor day and have had zero issues. The best part is I bought a pair of them for around 7 dollars through my hobby shop. I will warn you to save your clamp screws from your corally hexes if you go to the xray ones as the xray package has ONLY the two hexes in the package. No screws or drive pins. Just an fyi for those interested in an alternative clamping hex that doesn't cost a fortune (HPI!!)

In order to use the outer shock mounting hole on the new rear wishbones, do you have to do some sort of modification so the tires don't hit the lower shock ball ends?

As far as I know there aren't many out there, because most of them (the big names) are sponsered by Corally so they use their shocks.

I imagine since Corally USA went on the record saying there would be no new car for this carpet season, the release of this image puts them in a precarious position. It's possible they didn't know about it at all. It's possible they knew about it, but also know it's not coming out for a while, so decided to stay quiet about it. It's possible this is an asphalt car (look at the topdeck) and a carpet spec version won't be around until after this carpet season.

This is all speculation on my part, but since the public found out about the SP12X the same time Corally USA did, I wouldn't be surprised if this was unknown to them. Corally seems to do a very good job of keeping their secrets, well, secret, even from their international distributors. Someone will enlighten us when the time is right.

I don't think they are going to release this or a new car any time soon.
Just take a look at the 12X, that was already seen in february this year and still isn't in production.
Besides the car on the tweakboard looks like it's more designed for asphalt than the current model. And that would me a logical step if you take a look at the other companies. So releasing such a car at this time of the year wouldn't be that great since the outdoor season is already closing.
I think (and there were already rumors about this) they are coming out with a new car around february 2007. Problaby at the 2007 Nürnberg toy fair in germany.
Please keep in mind; Corally isn't Xray!

IIRC, Jeff Brown ALREADY stated that some of the team drivers are testing out new chassis/top deck/steering linkage at some of the big races. The pics posted are most likely of those experimental cars. No platform advances without first having the team drivers do testing at major races, to see if a change IS truely a step forward. So quit getting your panties in a twist about Corally releasing a new car 'any time now', and making your current RDX obsolete.

Well, it did show up in a product shot of a brand new product on their official site. It's not like the guys there don't know the difference between an "old" RDX and an experimental new one. Maybe they didn't have any old ones around to photograph, because they didn't update the picture with an old RDX, but just removed it entirely. Ya dig?

Easy change roll centers

Easy maintenance on diffs
Ball Mounts are on the bulkhead instead of being on the shock towers
Motor moved closer to the centre of the car
Easier spur gear access

Corally.com has news of a newly designed topdeck for the RDX, including the verbiage "2006 Competition Spec."

"Suitable for use on RDX cars."
