The body mount posts have the same position in both models (RDX & RDX Phi) and are the same ones.

The Phi 2 is sweet.

Simon Nicholson of Australia built his new ride for the Reedy in his hotel room the night before practice started. With no practice time and minimal tuning parts to play with, Simon and his dad, Fred, made his car very competitive in the field of invite drivers at the Reedy. The kid can drive...

The things to note is that the new car has steering and is lipo compatible with its higher upper deck. This is a boom to those of us that want to use the car on asphalt.

I just hope the Phi 2 is available before the IIC in September. Pleeeeeeeeeeeze...

Bill

I got a bit of a problem here

I'm just installing the parts i need to run the short wheel base.

Ive installed both front and rear 36t pulley's and also the 186mm belt (77137) and running the stock 507mm front belt.

Problem is when i turn the bearing holder 180 degrees to use in the car the belts are far to loose. If i leave them in the standard orientation you cant even get the rear diff in the mount.

Any ideas? Do i need to buy the optional bearing holders to get it to work?

I think you need to use a Tamiya rear belt from the 415 series car.

Tamiya belt was only for the supershort wheelbase where you aim the bearing holders closest to the center of the car and use the smaller pulleys.

No optional bearing holders required for the short wheelbase setup. You just need the Tamiya 415 short rear belt.

Met your Simon Nicholson this week at the Reedy. Wait til you see the new Phi...

Im going to assume this is the rear belt you are talking about.

That one works; but, the best belt is the "Tamiya TRF415 Low Friction Belt (Rear)". Part Number is #53707. It is white as opposed to black. More flexible to reduce friction.

I wouldn´t recommend the white one. It doesn´t last a long time, it strips easily. The black one is a better choice, I have used the same belt for over 6 months without changing it using 3.5-4.0 turn motors.

Check out http://www.rctech.net/forum/5533118-post291.html

The best belt i have found is the Tamiya MXX rear belt, its not low friction but its about 1mm longer and frees up the front belt slightly, i have found the setup to work well.
