Thanks to Ken Brumbley, Robbie, Jeff Brown, Bigg Rigg, and Juan for all their help this weekend getting my OG RDX up to speed. The car was definately on point, too bad the driver couldn't keep it from tumbling into the stands.

The Orion 3200 will fit the RDX. All you have to do is raise the posts on the battery strap or use tape. I had to shoe goo some lateral supports into the chassis to retain the battery as well, antena tubes work nicely. But it works find.

I considered getting a Phi but I could not see how a lipo would fit without some grinding that I didn't want to do.

My solution was a Losi type R with an Orion 4800. Slick set up.

I have been running a 6000 MaxAmps Lipo in my RDX, Key was to fit Strip wieghts GLUE plus the tape on to the bottom side of the battery, in the battery slot. Added the apropriate spacers to the post's, but no other side supports of any kind have been needed. No matter what you still need to add more wieght to off set the 50 to 60% wieght loss from 4200 cells, but that can be done with the Corally Chassis weights.

I have the Orion Carbon and it fits in my Phi with the strap snug as a bug inna rug. I have lead filling the resess on the top, I have lead glued to the outside of the battery (really not as ugly as I thought-might paint it black) and then more lead on the chassis to make 1525g for rubber 10.5 racing. Ran last night with a 13.5 BL and the battery for the fist time. Mindnumbingly brilliant is what I instantly found the Li-po world. Didn't have a chance to AB vs Ni-Mh, but it sure felt punchy enough. Then came the good bit after the first heat: slap the batt straight on the charger at 5 amp, 20 mins later, it's peaked having taken in 1478 mah. Same after the 2nd qual. Might just end up with too much time left on hand and will have to remember to work on the car a little.

Man alive, since I took advice from here, my Phi is cracking good. Never had a better car.

The only hard case that fits a PHI is the 3200 peak/orion/kyosho pack. I used two of the corally chassis weights and lead on the battery to equal out the car weight.

I know you guys at Corally are probably just getting settled back in from a long week at Vegas but it would be awesome to see the setup sheets from both Brad Johnson's Stock setup and Toso's Mod setup!

thanks
