I have been using the tray with either the SMC5000 or TP5000 packs for a year. Both packs nicely balance out the car; but, can make it a tad slower on response...Not an issue for me.

you have to change 2 parts on the original diff
buy the sp12x us diff nut thrust washer (75926) and do away with the thrust bearing

and change one of the 1/4 x 3/8 bearings to a flanged one..(bearing has to be placed in the diff flange side facing towards adjusting nut so it doesnt fall out so it works in the same way as the o8 diff)

thats it mate hope this helps

What ride height did you have and what did you raise it to?

Did you get the car new or used from someone? Are you running foam or rubber tires and what compounds are you using? If you built it new and read the directions that came with the kit, I find it hard to believe that you are traction rolling with low roll centers!

I recently picked up a used 08 Phi from a friend and I was curious...has anyone made an aftermarket that angles the battery mount slots like the LiPo tray does for this chassis? Our track has banked turns so it takes quite a beating on the transitions so I'm thinking ahead to when I'll need to replace it.

I have the opposite problem as above, I can't get enough turn in on my Phi. Usually I would adjust the ackerman but this car just doesn't have enough.

I have the stock caster (6 I believe, sorry I don't primarily run this car) and I'm using shortest low rc for the upper front and both white shims are set to make the car as short as possible. the rear is set to the middle hole on the hub and the lowest outside hole on the tower. shock setup seems to be inside on the rear and outside on the front uppers. I'm using the softest spring in front from the black kit, and the 2nd softest in the rear with unknown oil. 1.3 sway bar on the front, no sway bar on the back (which should actually go back on now that I read that but our track went from no traction to decent recently)

Can I drill another hole for the ackerman farther forward or do any of you have some different advice? I thought about the 3 degree caster option as well.

sit your front shocks down, and put your backs up a bit. i run 1 set softer springs in the front than the rear (black spring set) and i do not have any sway bars... the RC is set to the middle spot, i believe and i too have 6* caster blocks.

one quick question, the 5 hardness arms would be the most forgiving of the bunch correct? i'm running the supplied 35s that i was given with the car, though i have broken 4 so far this season..im looking for something to make it a bit more durable

You will have too much flex with the 5 arms. The PHI is a very good car, but if you knock it it's usually an A-arm that breaks. Better that then a more expensive part. I use the 80 A-arms and only with a bad knock they break. Sometimes you just hit that sweet spot and crack it breaks. I have raced other cars in the past and have broken many parts... so far the PHI is most economical.
