Default New corally

I have just seen the new corally run at my local track in Florida and the car is awesome. I look foward to seeing the New corally do some damage to the competition very soon. The Corally USA owner Rob was out putting down some very fast laps. It was very smooth and Quick. It did have awesome acceleration just like the Tc3. It looks totally cool!!!!!!



This cars is totally new ---arms, Drive train, Shock towers, Pulleys, belts and Chassis.


Call superior Hobbies in Orlando if you have any questions or want to get your own when the car comes out. I heard the car will be coming out in the months after Xmas..

If so many people have seen the car why have we not seen any pictures or heard any real details, if the car is awesome why has it taken so long to get to production?

Dont take me wrong my friend is the Aussie importer of Corally and if it is as superior as the C4 was when released there is a good chance i will acquire one. Just sick of these little leaks of info, hold it all back or let it out. And dont give me the old story of copying as every manufacturer out there will have one and will make notes and reverse engineer the car if the benefit is substantial. just the timing will be a little different

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

MIKE R. That's actually the first photo I have seen of the actual car, as opposed to a picture of a bodyshell, which could be anything. Interesting battery placement though pity about the 3 x 3 arrangement. Inconvenient when every other modern 1/10th touring car has side by side cells. Certainly a minus point for sales.

Stekke. It all depends what part of the World you live in. Certainly my choice between the three you mention would be Corally. It is the only real racing car of the 3 - that's just my opinion.

Constant still won't let out much about it, so if anyone can come up with more photos....let's have them!

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Rangulo is right on... with his first hand info...

The pic shown above is the real deal, but the chassis layout is still in the tesing stage. If you saw the whole car you would like the battery placement. Yes the batteries are a saddle configuration but they are all on the same side with one hold down strap and all new trays.



Check out this web site it has a few pics from the race n France. No close up car pics though.

A friend e-mailed me a jpg....

I hope the chassis will eventually be much narrower. Wide chassis will drag on high speed turns and force you to run a higher ride hight- same thing with rear chassis overhang- the shorter the better- lessen chassis slap on parking lot tracks. I'm sure the team will work that out.

Corally USA ran the car this weekend at a local parking lot race and there were no chassis scratches at all. The car is also well under ROAR weight...

ps I would love to find out where the pic came from I showed Corally USA... they would like to know where it came from because there are no pics of the car, until now.

I dont know what you guys are talking about I waited over 6 months for the Tc3 to come out and that was a strategy to produce a good final product before it was released. Unlike yokomo, schumacher and losi who came out with cars that had major problems with the chassis and other things--Corally wants to come out with a good final product the first time.

I dont know about dragging the car chassis on the ground because our tracks our not that big. But having the batteries on the outside of the chassis helps the car on some tracks.

I saw the car run with my own eyes. I did not imagine the car run and it was awesome!!!!!!!

That's one thing on the new TC3 that I hear is being fixed- rounded chassis sides to lessen high speed roll drag- an obvious issue when you run on a bumpy track like our kneck of the woods. On my C4.1 it wasn't as much of a problem so I hope it stays that way.
I haven't seen the car myself but i know I'm looking forward to the new Corally.

This car is real cool. I ran the old car and it sucks. This car really changes all the things that were wrong and the free drive train is a real plus.

So is there an official release date yet? If the car is not yet receiving its spit and polish then it would be at least another six months away, is this a correct estimation (someone from Corally reply please)

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

The plot thickens!

I can't wait to see it, and build one and try it, but I bet it will be another 6 months before it is available.

When I ordered our first Tc3, which was as soon as we heard it was actually a reality.........shortly after the 98 Worlds, we waited ages for it. It finally arrived with the first shipment of 100 cars to Europe.

It was worth the wait. Knowing Corally and the way they operate, I am sure this new car will be worth the wait too.

I should be talking to Constant today, and will try and find out some more.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

March 2003 seems to be the date Mr Vercoe.
