Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

JEFF, RAYHUANG.

Tell me abit about this Gripper. Is it advantageous on tarmac (asphalt) with rubber tyres, or is it only any good with foam on carpet.

Anyone else that has had such experience please help.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

johnbull,

I have used Corally "Jack The Gripper" on rubber and foam for both asphalt and carpet.
With foams on carpet it is simply awsome!! It lasts the entire 5 minutes, and is consistent the entire time, everytime.
Best of all there isn't any unpleasant odour (okay it doesn't stick at all).

I also tried it at a rubber tire race recently...
The track only allowed Trinity Zip Free, which does smell and does not work that great. I ran both mod and stock classes (same car).
For one of the 4 mod qualifiers, kept my stock motor (monster) in and used Jack instead (shhhhhhh!). There was only half a lap difference in a 5 minute run. The car was hooked up the entire time. With zip free in mod, the car would break loose or be twitchy after the 3 minute mark.

I also ran out asphalt on both rubber and foam and found it to work just as well as 2 or 3 others that I have tried. I can't honestly say it was better, but it was just as good.
But this could have been my setups or particular driving style that day

John,

It also works good on tarmac/asfalt with rubber tires.

Pizza

BK,

I will get one. Probably go with the 1 belt first.

It also matters wheter you're running stock or mod.
1belt > stock
2belt> mod

You'll have to take the available gearingpossibilities in mind...

If you buy the "Master" edition you can try both.
Both are included.

Regards,
Pizza

To all the Corally Pan Car racers out there: how do you mount your electronics on your Corally 10th pan cars (C10X, CCT etc.)

TRACKDESIGNER71 Greetings from Malta.

My son races a C10X which I prepare for him.

We fit the electrics either side of the cell pack. We have the cells in side by side arrangement running down the centre of the chassis.

The Novak Cyclone speedo sits on the left. If you move it around a bit you will find a spot where it fits perfectly well without coming in contact with the battery holding brace.

The receiver on the right is easier still, because you can put that anywhere along that side, especially if you are using one of today's small receivers. We use either Novak XXL or KO Propo receivers. Both are small and light.

Hope this helps.

regards

Joe from sunny Malta.
