The kit shocks work fine, I think itís mostly personnel preference and you can also use the Tamiya pistons it the kit shocks if you want to.

If you use the Tamiya pistons you do need to shim them to fit. They are thinner then the Corally pistons.

Yes you do. I used two brass motor shims and they hold the piston in place.

Where can you find this kit? The only place I can find it is Stormer, and they don`t even stock it yet.

Superior Hobbies is about the fastest Corally stock in the USA (they happen to be close to the US distributor)

I found this link overseas that claims to have the 09 in stock on google. You can probably find some like this but they want 379 euros including the VAT which is VERY expensive for us to purchase.

Value Added Tax - so the government gets a slice of the sale!!!

I get the impression Corally have only produced a small number of kits thus far.

I know a new batch of UK kits are being prepared.

That place is basically charging $450 for the car, and then shipping to usa for probably $40. I don't believe that we have to pay VAT if it leaves the country (19% sales tax over there!!)

You would have to want the kit pretty bad to not wait it out.

I'm going to have to get a better idea whats in the new car to decide if its really worthwhile but the chassis and bulkheads probably make the up the majority of the price of the kit.

Cool, let us know how it goes.

One thing that is putting me off the car is the small 'user base' especially in the UK, so any set up tips are all welcome.

Hi Guys,

Ok i ran the car today with a win in the mod class at our local club, i was running 5200 lipo, Much More 36 tyres, 4.0 SP motor on a large bitumen outdoor track.

Now for the the bits you all want to hear, firstly i run a spool in the front, and when you run that the front bearing holders are reversed from when running a oneway, and there is nothing to stop the bearings from being pushed out of the bearing holders, so after 2 laps both front bearings fell out. There are 2 fixes for this 1) run the alloy bearing holders that are an option part or 2) as i did run a very small bead of glue onto the bearing holder then push the bearing in, this work good and i had no more problems all day.

One thing i think you need to be mindfull of when building the kit is the hindge pin mounting blocks, there is a small rib on the blocks that indicates which way the blocks go, i can see a few bring fitted in reverse if your not paying attention, so keep an eye on your instructions for the correct fitment.

My kit had some excess movement in the hindge area causing the arms to be very loose on the pins, but in the kit there are shims to take the freeplay out of the hindge pins which inturn takes the out freeplay out of the arms, hope you can understand that, its all in the instructions.

On the track i started with standard kit setup and it was not to bad, the car had great steering but the rear was not as planted as i would have liked, i removed the screw and shim from the bulkhead to give a little more chassis flex, shortened the rear wheel base 2mm (one shim) went slightly softer on spring rates, i only made one change at a time so with those changes the racing was over, the car got better with every small change, and will be back at the track next week end for some open practice so i hope to get the car even better.
The car was good enough to give me the overall win in the mod class today on its first outting, so i was happy with that.

Will keep everyone posted on any future changes i make to the car.

Rhys

The bearing holders from the Phi 07/08 will fit the Phi 09, the alloy bearing holder has a retainer cilp holding the bearing in so it can't come out, they would be the ones to run in the 09.
