I built fresh diffs the first practice day at the Cleveland Indoor Champs, and only had to freshen up the front one near the end of the weekend. This was running both stock and 19t foam. I haven't seen increased degradation when not using the o-rings, and the diffs are very smooth.
We tried running no o rings today and we could not get the diffs tight enough to keep them from making noise. Is there something else we need in there to tighten them up more? How do you adjust the diff? Someone told me that you run it down to snug then back off 1/8th turn.
What rubber tires are the fastest. Jaco green, RP30, or CS27s?

RP30 is fastest...followed by Jaco Green...and then the CS27.

Fastest in both lap times and wearing out is the rule of thumb.

About 2/10 sec difference between each make on a 9-12 sec carpet track for my experience.

If you use too much lube on the diff balls that can happen. All you really need is a coating around the diff ring.

I ran my PHI for the first time this weekend and it was GREAT!. The competition in SoCal is stiff...almost every guy I race against is sponsored so making the A has always been tough for me particularly at big events and this weekend was the first annual toys 4 tots race. I had a few big encounters with the dots that really hurt my overall time but I still able to qualify 4th in the A. Not bad for a first outing. Can't wait for the next race.

I want to thank Bitter for all his work in getting my car put together and setup. and also for all the tips. The car was great from the moment it hit the track. I think it's just a few tweaks away from TQ in 10.5 class.

Awesome Car!

I like using a battery hold down strap more so than using tape; but, I sure wish that Corally had engineered it better. Had my battery pack come partially out of my Phi EU twice while racing yesterday.

That's interesting...I think I could drive my car without a strap or tape and they'd probably stay in. I struggle to get my batts out sometimes

I tried to see if that will fit under the bulk head but it was just too high. Orion 3200 fit perfectly with an extra effort on the cell slots.

The "Bowser" method it is to lay the battery on its side and strap it in that way. This way you'll have plenty of room to place the stick of weight next to it.
