Default New Phi II Steering Lever Available from CorallyUSA

I e-mailed Jeff Brown yesterday and he advised that the new Phi II Steering Lever - Horizontal is available from CorallyUSA. Part number is 79257. Ordered one for about $20.

It will directly replace the center steering lever on my Phi. With longer ball studs, you can greatly improve the steering geometry of the car. Been wanting to do that for awhile.

Will hopefully report how it goes after this coming weekend.

I've been running it since Snowbirds with 6mm under the ballstud with excellent results.

The steering yoke is much shorter then stock. With 2-3mm under the ball stud, your back to the stock setting. I'm running my links almost straight.
You'll need a long balstud and some shims, but its fun you play with the settings. I've been told by some of my fellow teamates that the angled links are more aggressive and provide more steering. I've found that straighter links are a bit smoother and steer very well indeed. You'll have to experiment yourself and decide. Everyone feels something different.

See you there...Speedworld is in Roseville (near Sacramento); so, don't get lost.

If you are flying into San Francisco, I might be able to give you a ride to the track. It's about 120 miles (200 KM) from SF.

Sorry, I have a small car...for two...unless they can ride on the bonnet and boot.

Otherwise, you'll have fun driving on our side of the road.

Hey, why didn't you ask me today... You can use the Hudy tool to balance the car. Come see me at the track next time, and I will lend it to you
