guys i need some quick feedback as to which compounds of Sorex are best to try for outdoor asphalt, in warm conditions...

i currently have the option of the 32 and 36, should i just try both?.

and what inserts have you tried with them?..

King: a guy at my local track uses Sorex tires on asphalt and I think he used Sorex 32 tires with med. compound inserts.

Oasis2001: I've never tried the Tamiya tires, but I have heard of them......mostly about how much they cost!

Any of you know of another way to contact CorallyUSA. The contact link on their page, is returning the emails as undeliverable.

Here in very competitive California the 36's are getting rave reviews on high traction high temprature conditions. In fact, at a major indoor track that has medium temps but high traction the 32's just sit on the shelves while the 36's are flying off them. I hear they give the just right amount of traction without heating up or overgripping in corners. Hpi or echo or comparable (medium rounded) seem to be the insert. If the track is bumpy or low grip they don't seem to be as hooked up though.
Here is a review http://www.RCRacing.com/Page.cfm?InfoID=1486

Man, what is up with CorallyUSA? Are they bailing on us or something? First, the contact links started bouncing emails back and now the whole site is down.....or gone period.

Man whatever their problem is, I hope they get it straightened out soon.

Nope still nothing for me. I even tried the link you put up. I know its not my security settings or anything like that, and I tried refreshing the page, so I don't know whats up.

O'well I'll try again later.

Try switching browsers. For instance i can't open HPI's sit w/ IE but it will open with Netscape. My IE works fine with CorallyUSA though.

things seem pretty quiet guys?...cmon whats happening with the corally?..

on a smaller scale, anyone here got a mini z?...im thinking of getting one to burn around home when its rainy...

I think the hpi is kewl...but its a little too big for indoors..who has a micro, and can give me opinions on what hopups the car needs to be quick and handle well...?


back to the corally topic...the car went well on the weekend, was very quick and nimble on teh tight outdoor track we ran on for the interclub round 3..

I ran the usual setup. but reduced the castor, and leaned the rear shocks in to the 3rd hole for some more side stiffness..all in all prety pleased with how the car is going now...plan to test solidly this weekend..as we have a race day on sunday, and would like to test on saturday

King: I was quiet because we didn't have any racing this weekend. The outdoor season is over here and we're still waiting for the carpet to come in to start our indoor stuff.

I'm waiting for the carpet stuff to start up so I can try some different setups with the Corally. I haven't messed with the set up much since I got it, but that'll change once we start up indoors. I want to try a wide range of set ups and see what I like best.
