Yes Brian, a smaller spur is the faster solution, but I would prefer the 78T or 81T spur like I used in the old phi. I think in the old Phi the centre pulley position was not so problematic. Bigger spurs are more efficient. Maybe if I use the option belts from Corally could slightly solve the problem.

The solution you sugest should alow you to pull it back 1-2mm or so. If its not enugh I think you will have to change the center pulley to get it further back. All your alternativs are listed in the manual.

Have had to days on the track with the car now. The tip earlier in the thread about putting ceramic bals in the diff right away is solid. I did'nt and its already starting to ruffing up.

Had a coulpe hard meetings with the wall, whitout breaking anything. Althoug it seem the left driveshaft has bent a tiny bit. I've put steel bones on order.

The original front bones is +2mm. Anybody know why? it seems to me that the shorter ones will do just fine. Maybe to keep the oneway outdrives in place?

I wondered about this too, i think the axle lengths for Front and rear driveshafts are different too?

Does the car have a plastic blade type fitting (like on Schumacher and Xray) for the driveshaft end?

Well I sat down last night after work to just "get started" on the kit. I couldn't just look at the box any longer...Just as every other Corally kit I have built, it was a dream to build.

I got all the way to the shocks and looked at the clock and it was after midnight. I needed to get up semi-early today so I stopped there.

The New Inner hinge pin mounting system is AWESOME! The only "problem" I ran into was trying to use Alum. steering knuckles and C-hubs. You will still need to use the older C-hub screws, the new ones are to long on the bottom.

Default Wheelbase when compared to other Tourers?

Im reckon im getting close to ordering a PHI 09!!

What wheelbase length is the car in standard form? How does it compare to say, an Xray?

Cheers for all the replies folks!

Has anybody thought of using a different suspension arm set-up on the 09 now that the chassis is set-up for that option? I have seen Marc Fischerís 09prototype and he was testing with the Tamiya set-up, just wanted to know if anybody else has done it yet.

What are the benefits of the Phi 09 over the regular Phi? The lipo under the bulk-head/top plate and the much lower price are benefits but what else is there? In some ways it feels like a downgrade.

Do the carbon c-hubs and knuckles fit the original Phi?
