Thanks for the info, I've been wanting to try and find those perpendicular connectors to cut down on motor swapping/testing between heats. Are those made by Corally? Didn't see them on their site.

Ok, so you are trying to tell us that Lemieux and Dumas were running a multiflex lower chassis and a multiflex top deck at Snowbirds????

I never said this car was a POS, you did.

I said the attitude of a lot of people and the practices of the company annoy me, thats all.

I suggest you put your toys back in the pram.
you said you were going to corally and we would hear from you anymore. the car is a good car it is too bad that you are not happy .the rest of us are really happy with the [email protected]

He didn't do anything to correct it as a permanent fix. Just took the tweek out in under 10 seconds. My fix was to quit hitting things at high speeds. He sat the car on the Hudy blocks, wheel and all. checked both sides. Sure enough, rear was tweaked. He loosened the 4 screws toward the rear of the upper multiflex, held down there and tightened in criss cross pattern, tweak fixed.

I will also tell you he has no washers or counter sinking done on his chassis. He started putting together a brand new car, and used chassis that came with car.

Hope this helps.

AE part #6936 is an aluminum #4 washer, 10 come in a pack for 1$. Four of these washers equal 3mm (actually, just a tick more), which are commonly used on the inboard hingepin mounts to widen the car. I dont know which shims on the T2 you are referring too, but these are common and easy to find for this use. Four packages gives you enough to do the whole car, and you can add and remove shims in increments to find the right amount of spacing F/R. They arent shiny and purty like the Xray stuff... but oh well... theyre cheap and they work! For hub spacing under the camber link mounts i have been using motor shims that come in a Trinity shim kit... they are almost identical to the Xray shims, but are "in stock", versus the Xray goodies. If you guys are looking for "in the LHS" replacement screws that arent an arm and a leg to buy, AE also sells screws that are 3mm X whatever size you need that are for the MGT... there are two types, phillips head and socket head, so be sure and look before you buy.

I have the GTB with a 4300 right now. I am looking to run stock with it also.

Thefemale connectors replace the small phillips head screw that secures the endbell to the can. The female connectors thread in nicely with a larger phillips screwdriver. I have been using them for about 4 months and haven't had one ever come out. In fact they are still tight every time I use them. I think Hebiki is right that integy makes them. My LHS stocks the small connectors that are meant for general use and not the motor (like the three in the picture)under another brand. I can find them with the plane connectors as well as on the car side of my lhs. I will check on the name next time I am at the track (maybe today). Glad you guys like it.

Hey Andrew I know that car

Andrew did a great job on the wiring, the switch between brush and brushless should be real simple and quick.

andrewdoherty please post the brand of those motor bullet connectors and where to get them. looks like it would only take a minute to replace the motor.
