Local Corally guy Big Features gave me some more tips and emphasized the need to get a spool for it.

I don't remember my Pro4 acting like this when I ran it with the one-way? I think I was running 3 degree rear toe in on it though and we were running less power!hehehe

I was thinking maybe the car could use a little more toe-in in the rear to try and get more traction and then some toe-out up front? Was trying to figure out a way to get the car more planted without having to get the spool?

But anyways I ordered a spool today and hope that this will settle down the car and get it more planted in and out of the corners.
X,

Trust me, I've run that car alot and a spool/short wheelbase set-up is the hot ticket. I would also run your front camber links short and high. As far as toe, I would run the front at zero and the rear and 2 and 1/2. Make sure your dots on your roll-center blocks are facing down

Been a while since we ran ours, currently running the PHI.

foam:

Front 30.5lbs springs 60wt
Rear: 19 or 22lbs springs 40wt

Rubber:

Front: 22 or 24 lbs springs 50wt
Rear: 12 to 14.5 lbs springs 30wt


also have the 2 hole or 3 hole pistons and the lower shock seal mod that we played with which will change things......................

hope that helps

some guys run the tamiya 3 hole shock pistons.... there is a lot of discussion if you do a search.

the other mod is to remove 1 of the silicone o-ring in the lower shock body. replace with teflon shim to free shock stiction.. also a search should get you more info

i don't know if you 'need' to run the lower shock tower to run this body. However, 'if' you do, grab 2 associated spring retainers. install them with the cone pointing up.

hope that helped.

okay.

i've now started to get into foam and rubber tyre racing. great fun, wish i got into it sooner.

but here's my question:

the track i run on is carpet and I figured out exactly what the quirk was with it. it's such a low bite track and it's on such a cold floor that I can barely get any traction, let alone any temperature into the tyres. Plus, the car feels slightly sluggish while going into the corners. meaning I have to slow way down in order to go though the entire corner. exiting while on power is fine though.

It has a 27t motor (trinity mystery stock based, geared low for acceleration), the track has two straights, with one chicane at one side and a 180 degree turn at the other side. It's running on a lipo battery, and it has weights on the side of it to balance the car out. It also has a front and rear ball diff installed.

any suggestions?

Make sure to use some sort of tire traction compound every time you go out (Jack the gripper, Paragon) Also, you could try softer compound of tire. Even laying down the shocks one hole can play around with steering options. For a great reference, the Corally RDX manual has ideas, and setup suggestions in the back. (Page 25-32)
