The 08 PHI Diff is 79680 and does not come with pulleys. The original 36T and 42T pulleys will still work.

We are out of stock on the new diffs for about 3 more weeks.

I would recommend picking up the 1.3mm front and rear sway bar kits. I personally run them most of the time, it just depends on the track.

Any tips or tricks for rebuilding Corally shocks ?? i have PHI and RDX and they have both had issues leaking out the top. Am I overtightening ?? Should i use a different brand bladder ?? A few times when i have removed the top the bladder is actually in the cylinder

I had the same problem, I even had someone else build them and they still leaked. I just switched to Losi 10mm shocks, but I still use the corally springs.

IL_AudiRacer - The problem you are having is due to the bladders. I would suggest replacing the bladders with new ones from Corally. If that doesnt solve the problem you can switch to the Specialized RC bladders or the Associated bladders. If you swith to the AE bladders, make sure you use both pieces of foam in the bladder.

Thanks Guys, I take it this is a common problem ? as most places are out of stock on replacement Bladders. what is the difference with the hard bladders are they more durable ? what effects will it make on the car it seems the mediums are sold out but the hards are available.

Had a decent first run with the Phi today but need to get some help so that I can put in an order for some parts:

1. What is the part number for the aluminum steering blocks? Do they come together or do you have to buy individually?

1. What is the part number for the coupler shims? How many come in a packet and in what size?

2. I want to replace the stock turnbuckles with lunsford titanium versions. What sizes do I need? Does lunsford have a set?

3. I have a little play in my spur gear pulley. It moves side to side about a 2mm. Is this ok or should I shim it out?

4. For carpet rubber (low/medium grip), do you recommend running the 1 mm or 2mm raised ball studs? If so, which one for what situation? What do these do for the car?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

1. Steering Blocks - #79278
2. Lundsford does not make direct replacements. You have to order them individually. The measurements for corally and lundsford dont match exactly, so just get close and use RPM ball cups.
3. Mine moves a tad as well. I shimmed my out alitte, but its not really nessessary.
4. I personally have not tried to run them, but the gereral idea is to angle the camberlink even more. This will "center" the car and it will feel like it has more initial grip.

Hope this helps. You can always call the gang at Corally USA, They have done exhaustive testing and can tell you for sure what does what.

Mike
