well, i just got home from the Texas Champs race, down in Dallas on carpet/foams... ran Stock Sedan.

had a rough 1st qual, set me at 12th at the time, then 2nd and 3rd qual had a bit of a weird problem with the motor sticking (handout of course!), and finally in the 4th q, i got an A-main run, barely! 10th on the grid.

triple main format, got a 7th, DNF due to getting smacked in the side, moved motor and jammed pinion into spur so hard it locked the car up! and the motor was still tight in the car... then the 3rd round, i got a 6th, finishing 7th overall...

car seemed to be working well, just couldnt get as much HP outta those handouts!!!

kinda wished i had gotten one of those thicker lower chassis plates, tho... the extra stiffness might have helped on the corner speed, i think.

thanks Brian... it was a fairly basic deal, but ill look at the particulars this eve and let ya know. what i do remember is:

3-hole Tamiya pistons F+R
60wt front, 40wt rear
i think both shocks were 1 in from outside
optional low blocks all around, except stock in very front
1.9 front bar, no rear, 75% arms.....

Wes your car looked really good. Had a nice flow to it. You just needed a none-sticking motor lol

Better yet - maybe someone who has done it could make a template much like they did for the bumper and post it on the website.

kabttu- Make sure you use a little loctite on all of the screws that go into aluminum. Also, do not overtighten the diffs when first assembling. Otherwise enjoy a nice build

So I made a bumper from the template on Corally's site, and it was pretty much exactly like the template once I was done cutting it.

After a minor meeting with the wall, the bumper apparently bent in and took a massive chunk from the center of the (foam) tire, esentially destroying it. Has anybody else experienced this? I feel I followed the directions properly.

My bumper has been working fine. Before I got one I broke a couple of arms. Now with it on there is more protection. I haven't broke an arm since and I do hit the walls and pipe alot. I did manage to bend my two front cvd bones. I still don't know how I did that....

Does anybody know if there is a titanium or aluminum screw kit yet for the car.
