Wow, that diff thing is cool!

Will the US version ship with a thicker chassis, are they going to try the thin chassis with the stiffener for the US market?

Yeah the new diffs should be super lightweight, they are hollow and then there is no big STEEL screw in the middle of it.

So it looks like the tension (sp?) is coming from squishing everything together with the o rings... sounds nice and light for sure!!! No more crazy snap ring gremlins or cone washers to flatten out

The differential is pretty cool. It's like a 1:12 differential. I'm sure other companies will copy it in their own way.

Nope there is a diff nut to adjust tightness.

It would be nice if Corally could at least provide a color coded stripe up one side of the springs but, until that happens, you'll just have to be sure to keep them seperated.

Do what some of the guys here have done....

Raid the wifes make-up area in the bathroom and get six different colors of fingernail polish. Put a small dab of one color on the matching pair of springs..

To me, it looks like the 2.9mm chassis comes with the US spec. In the picture of it, it doesnt have the stiffener on it.

The US Spec is with a 2.9mm chassis and topdeck!
The EU-Spec is with 2.4mm chassis and topdeck!
I'll post some pics TOMORROW of my RDX PHI!

Greetings Ollie

Does the EU spec come with 4 degree caster blocks and a one-way?
