The 6 cell chassis has the option to tape fives cells in, so maybe they will not offer a seperate 5 cell only chassis, not sure.

The diff hubs are the same, the bearings sit out farther like someone mentioned. US Spec will have 2.9mm topdeck and chassis I know for sure.

Hey Jeff, any word on a conversion kit?

I'm very happy to see the production version has a battery bar. All the proto pictures used tape.

But if you look at the pictures of the Toy fair it looks like the battery bar is at an angle in stead of straight over the middle.

I'm sure they have tested this well but I wonder if the cells will stay in place after a big hit.

Hi Guys,

RC Junkies have some nice up close shots of the Phi at the show. You can view the gallery here: http://www.rc-junkies.nl/toyfair1/th...s.php?album=34

Sub frame looks like a new inovation of anti roll bar?
Corally really has the eye candy market cornered.
Another good looking car.

Anti-roll bar? I'm not sure.

The car looks good indeed. The only thing I don't like is the sharp edged carbon fibre. It's such a mess sanding all the edges

It looks like a stiffening plate, the same as what is on the competition spec chassis kit.

Later,

Yep, I'm running one right now. It does stiffen the chassis significantly. I'm not sure if it's enough for foam tires. It's basically a way to adjust flex without changing chassis.

Easy access adjustments to the a arms and I like the spacer options.
Well I'm impressed. They deffinitly covered all the base's to what anyone could ask for in a touring car. Bravo!

On the bench racing front, it's a close battle between the Mi3 and Phi (in my book) for the best looking car. The monochrome look of the Phi is always appealing, and the way the rear of the chassis narrows makes it look like it's sucking in. I like the thin/lean appearance.
