So hopefully someone told the Corally folks that nobody uses the arms that come with the 416? All the TRF guys immediately switched to the shorter Evo arms. They seem to work better on all surfaces.

And ya know... if the Tamiya arms were compatible, that would be cool. You can get a pair for like $6 in the states, and they're very tough.

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

hmm.. Very interesting.. But it looks like marc was a busy man making parts for his phi to test and see what it does.

Brian, Wow now that is going in depth about roll centers . Thanks..

Oh nice, just because Brian has experience and can drive his advice is better than mine. Just because it wasn't as accurate or correct....... oh wait... nevermind.

It's like that Fedex ground commercial. He said the same thing, but he shook his hand like this.

I've heard of a Bear Market, Yogi Bear and Smokey the Bear; but, never, ever, ever a Bear Comedian...

By the way, proto type looks sick. "Bah" to the nay sayers, it'll be another step forward by Corally. Thanks for keeping the faithful C mainers in the loop!

thanks, brian and other responders. I changed the couplers all to the down position and car was indeed MUCH smoother and more consistent! Why do they say to run them up in the manual??

Does anyone know when the new phi is expected to be released? I'm hoping not until next year so I can atleast finsih 2008 with the phi I just bought last month!

I wouldn't expect to see it any time soon, since they are still using Tamiya parts for R&D and have not made their own prototypes yet. Then again.. what do I know? They're not paying me to think for them.
