I have had mine for almost 3 months and it hasn't even had a set of tires on it yet. I'm still having problems fitting the 3200 orion lipo pack in it. It's still hitting the rear bulkhead. I've sanded the bevels already. Looks like I'll be sanding some more. Hopefully it will be ready for the state race this weekend. If not I'll have my 2 1/2 year old RDX for a back up.

8 Degree Caster Blocks for Corally RDX Phi

Specialized RC has designed, tested and now are releasing all new 8 Degree Caster Blocks for the Phi. We have found these blocks to work excellent on foam tire carpet racing for the added edge. Just in time for the Las Vegas IIC race at the end of the month.



That's awesome!!! Mark me down for a set of those for Vegas Jeff/Rob.

And then I put my Phi on the track and all the bad feelings evaporated. I didn't intend taking the car to the track, so it wasn't finished as far as shock mods; did the front but not the rear.

So with that in mind and just itching to 'see' where it's at, away I do with 10.5 and rubber tyres. Green track and green car, should be big danger signs. Either my driving has got rapidly a million times better or something else has happened. Oh yeh, I've got a Corally Phi and it's brilliant.

I got my 8deg casters in today. Awesome job guys. Machining quality is top notch. Going to be testing them out this weekend in prep for Vegas. I'll post up my thoughts.

The 26mm Jaco "Wagon Wheels" did tend to rub because of all the reinforcement on the inside of the wheel. I shaved the end of the arm down a bit to keep it from rubbing. The new Prisms, aka "Dubs" don't have that problem, as there is plenty of clearance.

The 26mm JACO tires are a smaller rim diameter which is probably what you are seeing. Just round the edge of the arm like Craig said and should be good.

Got to put my RDX on a track yesterday for a race, both heats were crap but I took first in the main and that was starting in fourth out of four. Small race, small track. The RDX handles like a champ and I gotta wonder how much better the Phi handles.

Come on Steve. Be happy with what you've got. It ran well once the kinks were worked out. You have a car thats 98% nicer than anyone at the track. See you in 2 weeks.

8 deg castor blocks felt awesome. I ran 2 tenths faster per lap and iit felt like I could drive it harder, smoother.
