Lastly are are the shocks the same as on the RDX? Do they need to have the shocks shafts and shock ends cut?

I have and RDX and love it. What's the street price of the new PHI?
It's only 4 screws including the shock towers. You can change either diff in just minutes. Ashalt racers rejoice. This car is the best handling asphalt car I have ever driven. There was 4 or 5 PHI's in the spec A-main at Reedy. Dayger layed down the 6th fastest run in open mod. TJ Bradly TQ'ed one round in the spec class. And put in a 13.4 lap. Fastest in the Reedy spec class. I missed TQ in the fourth round by .200 of a second. Blackstock's car looked like it was on foams. I believe he also hit fast lap in the invite class 12.4 Blackstock had some bad luck, he definitely could have finished much higher then 10th.

Is the PHI an asphalt car?? I looked at some online shops and it says carpet spec. Is there a different chassis?

Thanks in advance

Weylin has a couple 13.3's with...another car

The Phi was dialed though. It will be a force on asphalt. Blackstock and Simo were hauling a$$

There is 2 versions. One comes with a thinner lower and upper top deck and one-way. The other is a thicker lower and upper top deck and dual diffs.

Adrian, my bad. Totally forgot Weylin nailed a 13.3 His car was dialed.

Well, the PHI proved itself again already. 5 cars in the spec. A, very impressive. What a great car this is to drive. Big thanks to Rob and Jeff from Corally USA for all the support.

Juan - When can I get you on some foams? Vegas?

Thanks - Brad

Good showing for Corally at the RROC...congrats to all. Were you guys having to add alot of weight to your cars with a 19T. I ran mine this weekend and had to add 90(that's ninety)grams to my car. Maybe the scale was off...

I kept all the stock screws on the car. Added a lipo pack for my corally fan. And I was at 1527 with my kwik EP cells.

I dont know if anyone else has had this happen but, I bent my rear coupler clamp at one of the screw holes. Didnt break the arm or bend the hingepin though.
