Yep, Superior Hobbies is your one stop Corally headquaters. LOL

They had a ton of kits this past weekend at the Snowbirds, I know for a fact they have them (the US and UK) kits in stock with the carpet kit being out in about 2 weeks.


John R. where did you get the lowered front tower?

You have to drill a new hole where it screws into the bulkhead. Needs to be right above the original and below the camber mount. You will also need to shave some off the bottom so it will fit into the bulkhead. It's kinda tricky so take your time.

Just the front, it allows you to get the body lower....

The only problem with this mod is if you plan on running larger tires you'll need to run AE shock retainers....The AE retainers fit down over the shock ends more...

The mod with the shock tower to lower the body, does that work with down force which in turn makes you drive into the turns better or more grip? Most of the tracks I run on is mainly asphault or parking lot racing. I am already having too much steering on this car and slowly adjusting to take out more.

I didn't do the mod yet because my stratus body just fit...but i'm mounting a parma alfa like mo said and i'll have to cut it down. It does sit high. Do you think corally USA is going to release lowered spring perches? If not, i'll have team tamale make me some lowered spring perches. Is anyone interested if I have them make em?

By larger tires, Kevin means 2.3 or larger. It's tough to get ride height with anything larger than that, even with the AE perches.

Tamale Spring perches...sure
