One of the big reasons Corally USA and its team drivers are tight liped about the release date, is we dont want to put out a release date and then have to change it if the car and quality assurance are not up to spec. Lots of companies put out release dates and then the car is delayed months.

Trust me, the car will be worth the wait. I wouldnt sell your PHI's just let. The car will be great, and Team Drivers will be working hard to establish set-ups and racer support but the PHI is proven and still a top performer.

Default lipo

Does anybody have any idea how to fit the TP 5000 in the Phi before the new car comes out?

Brad Johnson apparently has done it according to the vintage thread.

Being new to lipo, can we grind the case much or is it fairly thin?

Bosley-The TP5000 won't fit under the upper deck. You need to pick up this lipo tray which angles the battery and hangs it off the side a bit. http://www.corallyusa.com/istar.asp?a=6&id=SRC79863!SRC

The Specialized angled battery tray does an excellent job of balancing the car's corner weights overall.

Kind of a "dumb" question, but I can't seem to find a logical way of installing the battery adapter. I guess the part that confuses me is the counter sunk port holes... Anybody can clear this for me pictures maybe?

Thanks.

f2000racer - The counter sunk holes on the Specialized RC Lipo Tray are for the screws to mount the battery brace. Those counter sunk holes should go down against the chassis once the screws for the battery brace are installed.
Hope this helps.

No question is ever dumb!

You mount the two stands for the battery strap in the two countersunk holes. The side with the weight slots goes inward towards the center of the chassis. Then you line up the two other holes in the adapter with the holes in the chassis plate to attach it. Out of habit, I attach the front side of the adapter first.

When you want to change motors. Remove the rear screw holding the battery adaptor and loosen the front screw to swing the adaptor plate out at the rear. That way you can easily get to the lower screw holding the motor in place.

The new car will fit any lipo, my IB 5000 fits in with alot of room under the top deck. its very nice to mount the lipo without having to use the tray.

How has the new car been working out for you and does it feel any different than the previous PHI? Thank you for the info and good luck to you and all the Corally guys at the Reedy Race.

Default Foam tires

Hey all,
We race on foam tires down in SA. Just wandering if anybody out there can give me there experience in the following case.
Car handles great when track temperature is down, but when it goes up back end comes out on power out a corner. Would you say you need harder shore tires in the back to prevent this. First instinct would say go softer for more rear traction, but I think the rear tires have more grip and spin causing the car to come out. Anybody out there agree or disagree, please give comments. As I said car set-up works but just need help when temperatures rise


Thanks all Ciao
