Thumbs up Thanks!

So I'll need to get another black delrin piece for the front ball diff right?

and thanks for the dust prevention tip never thought of that.

This forum is awesome!

Corally USA.
Are you doing exchanges on the alu portion of the ball diff. for the delrin one? I purchased a kit with a separate ball diff, should I just use the alu one?

also i saw a white dif gear on Simo's car on the Corally International site. Is that available? Thanks!

I guess you're gonna run a hard front diff anyway, so use the alupulley there, and also do the protective tape trick. There's no big problem using the Alu. but it's very open, so carpet gets in there a bit too easily...

The white piece is also delrin, as the black one(At least my black one is). I got two of them before christmas, they're great!

TEam Corally,

Whats up with this car that on carpet you guys are running less caster it seems than other cars? I have heard of Chris running 2 deg?

This is a knowledge thing. Running the car for only about 5 days now-I already know to throw the set-up book out the window. This amazing car walks to the beat of a different drummer.

Shed some light!! Help us shadetree tuners out.

Ray

In Europe with the RDX on rubber/moldeds we run 2deg casterblocks with a one-way diff upfront!

Indeed it's amazing this car still is in control, and really fast to top it of.

If anyone told me 2deg+oneway would be fast, I'ld say they were crazy, but......

Ray...

It depends on the track. I believe all of us ran 4 deg this weekend. You only see 2 deg in the high speeds of Modified to get more turn in. It takes away mid to exit turning though. Typically stick with 4 deg to take away turn in sensitivity and hold the lines better coming out of the corners.

Jeff

Thanks guys-I have been running 6 deg with antidive in the low roll position. I feel like it maybe has just a tick too much front end bite for long fast corners-so I was going to try 4 deg caster with antidive Thursday. See if it gets faster in those corners. I could use a bit more turn in vs. mid-off steering too-so this might be the ticket.

Usually, with rubber tires and oneways anyway, I've used less caster on carpet tracks with all my cars(TC3 2 dgr, Xray 3 dgr, on the Pro4 I used as much as 4 to calm it down), mainly because they're smaller and with shorter corners. On outdoor tracks, it's usually more sweeping corners, and thery're usually bigger. My opinion has always been that although more caster can feel a bit more understeered, it pulls off more speed through corners, whereas less caster feels more agressive into the corners, but since the tires have so much less angle, they have too much of a braking effect.

Indoors on rubber, you often need that braking effect into turns, and you also need the steering effect into hairpins and the likes.

Hope someone got smarter, or.. well... Whatever

This may be very different for foam tires also....

Ray, why don't you try 4 degrees with the pins flat? It'll have more steering everywhere and will be smoother. Cuffs said he's running the 6 degree blocks, pins flat (that's what he said sometime during qualifying)

O.K. her is my question.

I'm running Cuffs setup from the website with Cyan and Magenta tires. After a day of running my fron tires are smaller than my rear tires. The car is not pushing or loose, it is very neutral, but every car I ever ran has worn the rears (softer) twice as fast as the fronts. I'm wondering if it's because of the weight bias or maybe I have something weird going on.

It's the weight bias and the way the car works. My fronts always wear more than my rears.
