You should definitely get it, I'm sure it'll give you "more steering." Haha! Tell Chris to bring that 17.5 next Sunday (and Tuesday) if he's still willing to loan it. I'm coming home to punish you guys.

Are those Tamiya arms, sway bars, hubs, bones, shocks, toe blocks? I'm sure it's just for easy prototyping, but wow. :-)

That new Genius ESC looks nice. It's too bad about the purple.

It does appear to have a lot of updates that make it more like the existing cars on the market.

Seeing pictures of this Phi using all those parts you just blasphemed feels almost as good as if I were able to reach through the Internet and bitch slap you from here! :-D

Let's count the ways of tamiya parts
1. front A-arms
2. Rear A-arms
3. Rear hubs
4. Front & Rear universals
5. Castor blocks
6. steering blocks
7. Sway bar set F&R
8. A-arms mounts
9. MRE spool
10. tamiya shocks
I'm no tamiya guy coming over to flame this thread, I'm running the PHI and I must say instead of calling this a prototype just give the part# to the 416 conversion kit.......oh wait it may be cheaper to get a 416

I agree, the first time trying to build the diff is a pain in the ass! Quick question for everyone, I run on carpet with Jaco foam pinks...I'm having a hard time understanding the coupler positions (hole up vs. down). The phi manual says that you should run them up on carpet but alot of the setup sheets I'm seeing for carpet run them down...What is the main difference between running up vs. down? As always, any help very appreciated.

Well lets just wait and see what happens...........maybe Marc Fisher took it upon himself to bolt some tamiya parts on his car. Judging by where he qualified at this race............the parts didn't help.

Granted I wish they stick with the all black thing... The car looks pretty sweet.
