Darryl - Of course!

dfilo456 - Why would you want that?? For balancing a lipo pack?? We've already got the ticket for that coming soon... Stay tuned!

Also, I hope everyone who recieved their kits had a chance to try them. I did hear from Cuffs that the center of the shock towers may be too low for the 2.0 trans.... If that created a problem for anyone I appologize as Mike never had a 2.0 in his car with the towers so I didn't even think about it. I don't have a PHI here but if anyone can fill me in on how much clearance needs to be added, I'll update the towers to clear the larger pulley. Again, if this created any trouble for anyone I appologize and please drop me an e-mail. Thanks!

eddie,

The weight distribution is the same, but the chassis is MUCH stiffer than the stock carpet chassis.

eddie10 - Brian is correct, the weight balance is the same but there are other details along with the chassis being way stiffer. We moved the servo forward slightly and out slightly (to clear the bellcrank) so there is more room for brushless speedos. The front shock tower has slightly lower camber links and the shock positions are lowered to help with mounting the front of the body lower for foam tires. The rear shock tower has the upper row of camber links the same at the stock tower but also has a really low set for the use of AE or Losi style rear hubs with the vertical ball stud. The rear tower also has the shock positions slightly raised to allow more adjustment when running longer springs (like Xray's).... Overall, there's a lot of little details that went into each part to improve the car's geometry, fit and function....

Kenny - Great!

Josh,

So, is this Phi upgrade basically for a foam tire setup? Is anyone using it for rubber TC?

A major wish list item for me is something to balance my Orion 3600 battery pack in the Phi. Basically, counterbalancing the chassis with something like tungsten on the battery that is opposite the 13.5 motor (heavy wt), ESC (medium wt) and servo (light wt). Thanks.

Yep.

Cyrul tests stuff like a mad scientist. Change, adjust, tweak, test, run are very much apart of his every day. I witness it every week.

After all attention to detail is what wins races. Period.

Still Bill - Guys are getting the shock towers to try on rubber tire but the chassis is developed mainly for foam tires.

In reguards to lipo chassis balancing, I've witnessed a lot of different methods at our track and I am sure there will be a lot of very trick items that people will make. We are going to start making lipo chassis and a few other pieces that will allow really good balancing of the car without having to add extra weight over the limit to get the car balanced left to right perfectly.... It will be a really simple design making it effective and easier to fit all the lipo's in the cars along with being easily adaptable to the different weight specs of the different packs.
