I dig the Losi Jrxs-R myself. All that cool anodizing sets itself apart from the rest. Everything in the middle just makes sense.

I'm going with the PHI for the best looking. The RDX was always a very clean and open layout and the PHI just takes it one step forward. Can't wait until it comes out. The MI3 IS a close second but I can't stand Purple. Make the whole car pewter and I'll get one of those too.

Does the new PHI allow diff changes without disturbing the shock towers/camber links? Please confirm as this takes it one more step past the current belt-car easy access diff. configuration.

This is the best picture I could find. It is a late prototype picture.

It's hard to tell but I think there is a good chance you could take out the diff and leave the shock towers in place.

For me it's not that important, I don't change diffs/spools often anyway

I still don't see how the roll center adjustment is easier than the RDX. Still ahve to take the bulkhead out to get to the screw to move the blocks?

I believe the roll center blocks are mounted to a seperate piece that mounts directly to the chassis now...

there are 2 screws on the piece that holds the roll center blocks, so basically you can remove those 2 screws and add shims or a spacer if they come out with one, and there you have almost instant roll center changes

The Phi seems very fast in the hands of Toso, Simo (2nd right now), Blackstock and Fischer...all three having top 10 cars (Marc was in the top last night).
