It will allow you to run the coupler clamps in the short position with the 1.71 drive ratio. You just flip over the diff holders.

It will also allow you to put the shocktower on the frontside of the rear mount to help with shock angle.

Also, I am running the narrowed knuckles on the front. I took the rear arms and dremeled them out to accept the C-hubs. You put the C-hub in the outside position of the arm. I also use the optional two hole rear hubs and run the hingepin in the outside hole as well. You will need no shims on the front end if you use the rear arms.

Jeff
Many thanks Jeff...Pretty much what James Arluck already indicated; so, I am happy there is agreement. Need to order the 36T pulleys and short belt to put it together. Probably won't be using it for the Reedy at this late date.
Guess I need you guys to be open 24/7...LOL.

I was able to get some testing in today (Ya I know its Monday, long weekend here up in Canada). Although it rained off and on all day I was able to try what I wanted and decided that running the 1.3mm sway bar on the front with the rear shocks moved up to the second hole down worked the best (everything else is the same as the set-up I posted earlier).

Thanks to a quick shipment from Jeff and lucking out on finding a Tamiya short belt, I have my Phi rebuilt and setup to the ultra short wheelbase spec for the Reedy. Tests out fine in front of my house...LOL. Thanks Corally USA.

I use the Orion 3600; but, I understand they have a new 3800 coming out that is the same size. Just had to slightly dremel away the bottom of the aluminum fitting under the top deck.

Just wondering about an asphalt setup and how most posted here and on the Corally website show front kickup being used. I was wondering what effect this has on the car and why everyone seems to be favoring that portion of the setup?

Depending on what track you run at. In general, kick up will mellow your car out and make it easier when it hits bumps on a bumpy track cause the suspension angles and hingepins are working better. It also can add steering in some situations depending on set up cause as the car transitions weight towards the front off power it works better with the geometry. Be careful though, it does affect the roll center because you are changing the lower arms and often lowering the trailing part and it will affect your caster. Its one of those tuning options you have to just try and see the affect.

Thumbs up

I have been looking around for rear uprights with vertical ball studs. One of our locals heard about this and decided to produce them. His website is here. I got a chance to see some prototype parts and they look great. Here is a picture that is on his site, notice that the hinge pin is not yet drilled... He will drill them to any toe angle:



I am not sponsored by him, just thought that his product might need a little 'air time'. For machined one-offs, I thought it was a very decent price.

I tried the ultra-short wheelbase yesterday and turn-in steering was very good. On-power steering was terrible though. I guess I need more weight beeing shifted forward when the car accelerates.
