Hard to get spares in the UK ???

Try http://www.modeltech.co.uk

What Mike dont know about the corally Phi 09 aint worth knowing seeing as he designed the diff for the car.

Suggest you call thursday or friday at latest though as he is away after then.

Setup try http://www.corally.co.uk/ setup section you will find http://corally.co.uk/files/phi09-230111(1).pdf which might give you a few ideas to try.

With 37t gear diff with std 36t pulley in front and 21t pulleys you have to use std 507 mm front belt and Xray (or similar) 189 mm rear belt. You will get some overdrive if you use 36t pulley in front instead of 37t...
Interesting find , got any pictures ?

Thanks for the tips guys. Will be giving Modeltech a ring thanks for the heads up. Good to see someone else running the car in the UK thought it was a bit thin on the ground.

Are you using the square weights the go in the chassis? If so how many.

i just use two, it balances the car just fine and put me at around 1387 grams which in the US is 7 grams over. I place one in the forward slot and one in the rear slot leaving the center open. Hope this helps -Randy Banks

The whole suspension is Tamiya. I think the Corally straight wishbones are a little bit to soft.

Yes but I think Corally ones also will fit without problems. Iīve run 15 packs with the geardiff now and the rear belt still looks good, this with a 4.5t.

I had some problems with the bearing holders first because the gear diff grinded down some material on the left side holder but itīs fine now. I donīt think Corally will release a gear diff so this is the best solution so far. And in modified you must run a gear diff nowadays.

The BD5 Gear Diff works with out any modifications to the bearing holders. Thats what I have been running. Its a 40 tooth. 507 front belt 210 rear belt. 42 tooth rear diff and 21 tooth center pulleys. Rear diff is all the way back. Just another option.

are there any other cars out there that use 42 tooth pulleys to make it a little easier if you still want a spool up front and rear gear diff?

Randy - Just put a 42 tooth spool up front and run the BD5 Gear Diff in the rear. You will end up using the same belts as I had posted earlier.
