Starting to get my phi stuff together for the IIC. What's everyone's opinion on standard vs. narrow knuckles on carpet rubber?

I'm sticking with standard knuckles. I have plenty of steering and stability, so I don't wanna mess that up. Plus, it seems the Blues seem to have a touch more steering anyway...

I think that you should go with the standard one's for rubber tire. I have never run the phi but I did stay at a Holiday Inn...

Good luck in vegas bro.....

New steering blocks and bellcrank seen at the Euros....

From RedRC:

"A quick look through the pits here in Vila Real have revealed a number of new products being run and tested by some of the top drivers. Corally racer Marc Fisher from Germany is running some new prototype parts on his RDX Phi. There are new rear uprights that have 1mm lower top mounting points, also the front steering blocks have received some attention together with the new servo saver part that has simpler to adjust Ackermann."

What arms are those on that Phi? Looks like there's a number of new parts.

Looks to be rear arms all the way around?

Those aluminum parts have a very cast aluminum look to them...

They are rear arms front and rear. You have to use the shorty wheelbase where the arm mounts are moved up. We have been testing this for a while in the States. Then at the Reedy Race, Rob and Toso decided to drill the rear arms and put the shocks on the back of the car, which is what you see on Fischer's car.

You have to heavily modify the rear arms to be used on the front, then run the narrow knuckles and its really good.

For those of us that don't know our metal fabrication, is that a good thing or a bad thing?

Well it probably won't really matter.. I'd say castings are more prone to breakage, but I seriously doubt its an issue. If they are infact cast (as it does look like they are) they should be cheaper
