by the way i run parma tires, someone said there differnt offset then jaco weither of not that is true i dont know i havent checked into it yet.
I apprecaite it and I will give it a try.

I too run Parma tires and really like them, but I have not noticed an offset compared with other brands

Parma tires do have a different offset than JACO rims.

Hey guys, I'm thinking about making the leap into touring (from off-road), and will start with the Corally. It doesn't seem that anybody stocks the car locally, so I'll have to turn to the Internet for my kit and parts. Any suggestions for online outlets of parts and kits?

Also, could someone PM me the list from earlier in this thread listing the spare parts I should stock up on (for breakage problems) for both carpet and oval.

I don't know anything about tires, other than we'll be running foam on carpet and rubber outside. What brand are most guys running for both?

Anything else I need to know?

Cuffs-I too strapped in a 10 turn at end of racing today and I thought my car was flat out awesome in modified. Now I got to see your stock set-up!!! My RDX is definately better in mod than stock right now.

Mike, How much you want for your Fk04? I may be interested. How'd you and Tim make out with the new kits?

Rob,

Tim qualified 6th in the "A" and I finished putting my car together there at the track then practiced. It drives very similar to the Xray.

Hmmm, my Xray FK...I will let you know when I purchase the Xray FK05...LOL

I think Josh B. maybe selling his FK04

Later, Mike

Has anyone tried playing with the diff height on this car? A friend of mine, who has the FK05, says that raising his rear diff will make the car steer more on exit. I wonder if this holds true on this car as well? I also wonder what it does for the front.

Brian-if its more steering at no loss of corner speed-that'd be awesome.

Bump...I know a lot of guys locally have broken the rear body mount. When I got mine from Rob Love it had AE body mount posts mounted in the inside slots instead of the outer holes. One other guy actually glued 2 body mounts together...that looks like it's working pretty well too.

I have had two rear body mounts broken. One all my fault and the other-got help bigtime!!! So I saved the broken body mount and when I broke the 2nd one-voila-6mm thick body mount-all CA'd up. I hope I never break that one (two).
