You would need all of the C/F, the bulkheads, the bulkheads for the couplers, and i think the layshaft. The diffs are just updated.

From the RCZONE DHI cup report

We've had a closer look at the Corally PHi prototype which is in action here at the DHI Cup, Marc Fischer, Jonas Kaerup, Federico Sala, Simo and Sakke Ahoniemi all drive the PHi, the latest touring car coming from Corally and to be released in early 2007. The car featured on the pictures is the prototype, the final version will be a bit different, parts will of course be refined. Noticeably different will be the rear to in blocks, the prototype uses shims, same as seen on the old car, whereas the final version will use blocks in different sizes, it will make it simpler and of course stronger as well. Working on the final version will be considerably easier, the prototype features many parts which are screwed together, these parts will be made in one piece.


The dampers will be all new in order to fit the lower shock towers, the shocks will be specifically designed for this changed setup and lower cg. The steering system will feature a larger possibilty for adjustments to the ackermann. Looking towards the rear of the car, a new differential which is a bit similar to what we know from 1/12 scale where 3 ball bearings are used, gone is the pain of working on setting up a traditional touring car type differential. The spool will be a new type as well and the ball bearings used for the spool and differential will have the same size, no need for changing any longer, loosen two screws and cange, that's it. The prototype features a permanent internal gearing, like all other touring cars, but the final version will incorporate the possibility of changing internal gearing to suit the different needs of racing types, ie modified benefits from one whereas spec and stock classes from others. There's a lot of new features built in to the new PHi, it's not just a revamp of the old version, but an evolution

It sounds like more parts are new then it appears in the photos.

That is an old RDX, not the Phi.

Yea, old RDX with the newest chassis, topdeck and stiffening plate. That appears to be the same chassis the Phi is using.

there is no way that the phi can be using the same chassis... the bulkheads are way closer together where it sandwiches the diffs and the roll center blocks mount different.


lets hope the new car has some beefy suspension arms or something that can take a lil tap

It's almost definitely the "2006 Competition Spec" chassis that was released for the RDX (w/stiffening plate) that's been drilled for the new bulkheads. You can tell by looking at it. You can see the stiffening plate mounted on it in some of the prototype pictures.

Pretty sure the car is going to use the "updated" arms. I mean I guess they could come up with new arms, but they just spent all that time getting the updated ones right. The prototype car appears to be using production updated arms from the existing RDX.

It definitely looks like they're still doing some development on the car. The top deck in the latest pictures of the car is changed from the older prototype pictures. I can't tell if it's the same length or not, but definitely a different shape. I'd be surprised if this car came to market as soon as they're saying, it sure seems like they're still doing a lot of testing. The fact that they haven't released any official product shots leads me to the same conclusion. It's an impressive looking car.

They have always had alloy arms as an option if you want something that won't break, if you are hitting things hard enough to bend the alloy ones I suggest no arms are going to suit your driving style.

It doesn't look like the roll center blocks are easy to get to?

They mount to a separate piece that screws into the chassis, from underneath, not directly into the bulkheads.
