You will be very happy with your purchase

This has got to be the most popular (and best) Corally TC in the states...ever.

Well I have to say...I just opened the box and am very impressed. The chassis assembly as it is in the box is so stiff...it's incredible. This is by far the stiffest chassis I have ever seen. There is absolutly no flex in it at all!

I cannot wait to try this car.

Build a TC3 or 4 from the instructions and you've got a trainwreck.

speaking of train wrecks.......... the corally team aint big enough for us both jetro! oh and troy said he wants to "talk" to you give him a call! something about it's good to know your a friend??? huh

has there been any complaints or questions about the belts being really stiff out of the box??....i am building my car right now and i soaked the belts to make them flex more but when i assembled the diff assemblies into the bulkheads, the belts are very very tight. I know i have the direction of the bearing housing in the correct order and everything is lined up. One thing i did notice is that the bearing houseings, all 4 were the same and in the manual the fronts seem to be centered and the rears are off-set. Also, does the long belt go on the inner drive pulley and the short one on the outer?

Dan,

The belts are not as pliable as other cars and the drivetrain will not free spin for more than 2 seconds, but it doesnt matter on the track as the cars truly has rip and laptimes down the board never change on this car. Me thinks that means the drivetrain is efficient.

I would play with the height of the layshaft pulley so that the front belt gets very loose and the rear belt tighter. Then I would mount the belt tensioner at full loose.

Hope this helps,
Ray

Long belt should be on the inner pulley otherwise it rubs on the battery pack. Also make sure the diffs are opposite directions. The pulley in the front should be on the left and on the right in the rear because of the stagger on the center layshaft.

There has never been a problem with the belt tensions. Some guys have to run belt tensions and some don't.

I second this as the belts that come standard with the Tamiya 415 are very pliable. The optional Tamiya "Low Friction" White belts are much stiffer in comparision but the car is faster with them.

So I keep seeing people post that they've gotten their carpet spec kits. Where are you guys buying these? Anyone know of a place that has any in stock that will do mailorder? I'm ready to buy but can't find one!
