Something else I forgot to mention. With the offset bulkhead you have to remove some material from the top deck for it to clear.

You would probably have to call them to see about it since all the guys are over in Vegas that deal with the Corally stuff.

All you need is the top deck? What is the rest of it in that part number?

Well actually you do need longer turnbuckles, but yes that is the only thing you will need besides the topdeck. I assume the part number is different because it is a different top deck.

Has anyone tried the new arms with the new narrow hubs? Still ahve this problem? I prefer not to have to trim plastic off my tires, I guess I'm just anal like that. I am still holding out for the parmas to have a bit more offset.
Thanks for the info though bill. Im always open to new ideas. And is you ask Mr. McGoo I am always thinking wich according to him is NOT agood thing. I talk his ear off when we pit together at our LHS boucing ideas off him.
Is Mr.McGoo back yet?

If you are replacing the ball cups dont use those. Use the Schumacher ball grippas.

just picked up a carpet spec version and have some questions...

what are the must have parts for this car on carpet?

it looks like most of the corally drivers are using the 4mm chassis, new short arms, the lowered roll center mounts and the long extended shock mounts. did i miss anything?

do i really need the 4mm chassis if i have the 3.4mm top deck? i would think the parts to have would be the short arms, lowered roll center mounts and the long ext. shock mounts.

are most running the new motor mount which brings the motor closer to center?

MUST HAVES........nothing.

the CS kit is pretty good right out of the box. Certinly the Ultra Low RC blocks, Lowered front shock tower, and the new arms do not need the extentions.

As far as the 4mm chassis, we are getting away from it. I can't speak for the new motor mount as I have never tried it.

Why are you getting away from the thick chassis?

I finally got a chance to run the RDX I bought. I was very impressed with the car. It was so quiet, and I used Brian McGreevy's set up under it and the car worked so nice.

The only thing I had trouble with is I lost the screw that holds the low blocks in. What are you guys using for loctite to hold that kind of stuff in?

Chris, 4mm chassis is a bit much. The car seems to work so much better with a bit of flex. I heard the guys were even going to the thinner top deck at the nats.


BTW, I just got a report from Vegas. It seems the Xray guys are going back to the standard T2 chassis instead of the new solid one. Just another tidbit on "flex is good".
