We sold out of all 10.5 and 13.5 motors for that offer. I will have to see when we get more in stock and how long we will do it for.

Default PHI Diffs

Hello, I'm just about ready to get my PHI. I had a couple of questions. Are the diff's easy to get in and out? What holds the back diff in place? Does the new diff come in the US kit? thx for your help.

The diffs are very easy to get out, front and rear. The front are held in place with 2 screws but you must remove the shock towers also (2 screws). The rear is held in place by the body post mount and it slides in at an angle again you must remove the shock tower (2 screws).

I think I read that the kits now have the new 08 diffs in them, But Jeff may be a better person to answer that.

The latest kits have the new 08 diffs in them. Unless a shop has a kit that has been hanging around a while.

Will the SMC 5000 lipo fit the phi without the tray? Why is the new tray offset? Looks weird to me? Hows the balance of the car effected with it hanging over the edge of the chassis? Thx just my mind wondering.

Mike,

Jeff Cuffs talked me into converting to the new tray with the SMC 5000 for the IIC. It was excellent. The pack hanging out at the rear offsets the BL motor doing the same thing on the other side of the chassis. Both my carpet and asphalt Phi cars are setup this way now. The SMC 5000 is better than any other lipo I have tested to date.

Completely agree that it looked funny originally; but, I am thoroughly pleased with the performance aspect. Has more power than a 3600-4000 lipo at the end of the race and the chassis is balanced with minimal added weight.

Bill

What's the best body to run for stock foam? The Parma Mohawk 2 or the Protoform R-9?

A few pics of my front/rear mods. Front is using Jet Xray 008 front knuckles/Cyclone axle/Tamiya 46mm bone/Tamiya 5mm hex. You could use the plastic knuckles to achieve the same result. Rear as per everyone else. Will give it its first run this weekend and see how it works.

Parts...

FRONT

JET-XY-06 Steering knuckle Xray 008
#75187 HPI/HB Axle
#75188 HPI/HB CVD Rebuild Kit
#53823 Tamiya 5mm hexes
#51092 Tamiya 46mm steel dog bone
#53867 Tamiya 36T Oneway/Spool pulley
10x5 bearings(4)

REAR

#51212 Tamiya 36T Diff pulley
3mm diff balls
Xray 05 rear belt

SHOCKS

#53970 Tamiya Damper set(Black hard coating)

You could use the 008 std front steering knuckles(a lot less work). Just enlarge the top/bottom king pin hole to 3mm dia. With the alloy steering knuckles I enlarged the holes to 4mm and inserted a teflon sleeve instead. Too much work really.

I used the Tamiya pulleys only because they are cheaper and easier to get. All you have to do to use them is ream out the center holes to fit the spool/diff bearing and use 3mm balls in the diff. The Xray 05 belt freed the drive train up a lot compared to the Tamiya belt.

Hope this helps...

The Phi is a very quick car but when u get the best bits of each brand u get an ultimate weapon.......

I think the new phototype PHI has alot of other car brand parts.

i've seen this car do its first run today at the BRCCC track in australia and this short wheel base config makes the car dialled.

I run a short wheelbase car as well and I agree it is dialed on asphalt. I dont see a need to re-engineer an already great car.
