Ive dealt with Custom's with about every country out there and I can tell you that Canada is the WORST one out of all of them!! I feel sorry for you guys that live there!! So I would imagine that its a customs problem and not Corally USA as they always get orders out fast.

Yup-shipping to Canada sucks and dealing with all the e-mails from your consignee about where there stuff is-did you ship, why cant i get any info from your tracking number, etc. gets OLD really fast. lol But like a sucker I keep shipping rc stuff to people in Canada.

its hit or miss, i can get parts in 4 days form hongkong to canada. But crossing the great un-defended boarder is a mystery.. UPS is by far the best way to get raped at customs..

I have had good and bad crossing the boarder. Most good comes from non UPS shipments. CRC sent me a 12th scale in less the 7 working days, motek a chassis in 10 days... i have waited 3 weeks in the past for stuff.

Corally may or may not ship the same day you order online too right? So that can add to the wait, and u have no idea when they actually ship..

If you are referring to Richard's order it was shipped on the 31st of August. It is probably in customs. Orders are shipped promptly but we do not control customs delays.

Practicing doesn't come before business unfortunately. haha.

Joel-its NOTHING personal-I have spent a LOT of time in Toronto growing up (relatives). I am just talking about being held accountable for shipping delays when youve got nothing to defend yourself with except-ummm-I shipped it the same day I got payment and I got a tracking number that doesnt work past Buffalo

Shipping from the US to Canada does suck.... however, we are a growing and dedicated collection of RC enthusiasts. USPS seems to be the best choice. UPS - I know what they chose the color brown.

So far I've been really lucky with Corally direct... Jeff's team has been great in shipping stuff over.

When I use the set screw alone or the e-clips plus the set screw the hub binds because the hub is keyed by the set screw to the pin which binds in the arm. There is no slop this way though. The weirdest thing is that the pin only binds on one side. I have both e-clips and the set screw on the other rear arm and it is free with no slop. At first I thought "bent hinge pin" but after replacing with several new pins I have the same issue. I think the "no slop-no bind-set screw plus e-clip" side has just been on the car so long that it has "broken in" and is free. Just checking to see what others have experienced.

Does anyone else get stiff movement of their straight pins in new arms (old style 75 hardness) ???

OK, I think I understand that more castor (ie going from 4 to 6 degrees) gives more initial steering. Does, and if so how, it have any affect on on-power steering.

I am still learning and have so far equated corner entry with off power steering and corner exit with on power steering.

The reason I ask is that our new layout has a sweeper in it that all the other cars were carving at full throttle. I have been running 6 degree hubs to get more steering but have since adjusted accordingly. Every time I tried to go full throttle through the corner more than 3inches off the boards, my car would swing WAY wide and smack the outer board. Would going back to teh 4* c-hub help recover some on power steering? I had plenty of steering in the infield where it was slow.

Sorry for the long post. Just trying to sort this all out in my head so I can rely on my own knowledge more at the track rather than always buggin Mr. McGoo with my issues.

I've noticed that there appears to be 'new' outer hingepins that are oh so very slightly larger around, they work fine in the new arms but will bind up in the old (25, 50, 75) arms... all I did was bevel the flash away from both sides of the holes on the old arms until the 'new' pins would fit in smoothly... I only use the setscrew and not the eclips... hope that helps
