Mine actually came with 1.3mm hole pistons.... But mine was from a batch or two ago. The very latest batch might come with 1.1s, but I can't confirm that :P. Either way, I think both pistons are good. The 1.3's seem to give a little more steering as it transfers weight around a lot more, but 1.1's pack up and make the car corner flatter, and smoother.

Thanks. Korey. The pistons in my kit don't look that big. they're probably 1.1.

Another question...where's a good place to get parts for the Phi? Superior Hobbies always seems to be out of the things I'm looking for

Just stick your calipers in one of the holes and measure the lil' sucker.

Questions?? Help! Major Brain fart

I'm almost finished building my new PHI and started to mount the shocks. Looking at the directions they are supposed to snap onto studs (balls) that I mount but my shocks already have ball mounts in the cups and there are no threads for my to use to screw them to the bulkheads. My brain has shut down and I can't figure out what I'm suppose to do. Would someone take pity on this FNG and set me straight!

the balls that are snapped into the shock ends are the old style. You should have some long and short ball studs to replace them with. Use one of your wrenches to pop out the old ball and pop in the new ball studs. They work great.

No problem. Great car, but the instructions were pretty vague.

Now, if we only had Team Tamale braces already modified for the Phi shock towers.

I modified a set of them from my RDX to fit my Phi...and presto! The standard RDX braces work on the front end tower; but, you have to cut out a corner of the RDX to allow for fitment on the Phi's rear tower.

Kewl add-on...
