well, nexthops are not modified on iBGP, so both routers have to be 
able to reach the nexthop. you might need static routes or some 
internal routing protocol to achieve that. not sure why you talk about 
a /30, in this setup you usually use a /29 to each uplink.

it needs some way to reach your internal network, be it through core1 
or the address the ohysical interface for that carp interface.
