For top and bottom of the "Duraluminum Steering Blocks", you want to use the bushings instead of the ball bearings. The ball bearings don't hold up to the abuse.

Hi all

If I purchased the CORALLY RDX US CARPET SPEC - PART NO. #00167 for racing on Low/Med Bite Ozite, what other parts are needed to get a decent setup? I know 6 degree casters for approx $25 each but what else?

Thanks

Get yourself the black spring kit, the hard bumper set, and a 64 pitch gear.

The rest of the stuff like low roll center blocks, aluminum steering knuckles, etc you can get as you go along.

When I first got the car, I ran the stock roll blocks for a couple of months and the car is still fantastic.

Just get a setup from the CorallyUSA website, and copy it as close as you can. You'll find the car is still really good, even if you don't have each and every little hopup available for it.

Hi all

Thanks for the info. The problem I see is that the kit is already $400+ and this comes with a decent setup. The basic parts are generally fine. I am just concerned that I found 1 already, the C-Hubs which are a good choice for replacement but they only come in the Duraluminum. Are there other hopups on the latest carpet setup which are higher dollar items? Of course you can always go with a 4d caster and then change the setup in other areas to gain turn-in.

Has anyone else had a problem with their droop screws backing out threading in during a run?

I have been running the SRC bushings for a year now and no slop or binding. Oh well, should be good with either one.

Nope. Running the standard composite/graphite arms. I added a few drops of loctite to the screws thinking that might help a little. Haven't had a chance to check it yet though. I did this before the main last night. Will check this again tonight or this week when I get a chance.
