. The biggest improvement was the arms, the tamiya arms are not so soft as corallys. they dont flex that much.

Are the standard arms/wishbones that bad?

Is see Corally make Xtra hard arms now.

OPT RDXΦ/'09 79080 CF6 Wishbone, Front X Hard 80 (1 pc.)

WOW, the rear drive shafts are at the big angle, have you tried to rotate the rear bearing holders and run the 36t pulleys, had it on my 08 Phi and it worked
great, have set the 09 up for a run this weekend like it to, you also need to run a 416 rear belt.

Yeh! I notised that, but this was how it came together form the kit. So I figured it is supposed to be this way.

Are still waiting on a shipment of tuning parts, cant remember if I orderd the 36t pulleys. But I should definetly try that.

So its, 36t pulleys, 416 rear belt and the kit front belt?

OK not sure if you have done it on purpose, but you have the rear hindge pin mounts on the forward holes in the chassis, they should be one hole back, and on the forward holes for super short wheel, and as for belts its a 416 rear and standard front belt.

I do believe the manual showed them mounted there, but i did move it to the back hols to remove the angle. However I put them in the forward holes again to get the car to rotate better.

Belt is now order, thanks!

I used to have a Corally Phi that I ran on carpet. Looking into getting a new TC for asphalt and wanted to hear options on the Phi 2009. Any word on when it will be available in US.

I was told they should be shipping to hobby shops in the next two weeks. There was only like 20ish on the first batch. All I can say is you'll love it. The option parts are available now.

How is the car on asphalt? We have a low/medium traction track that we generally race on.

How is gonna be stocking the car? Price?

Well I took the car out for some laps today, for a first time run it definitely shows potential.

Definitely has a lot more steering than the 08 PHI, probably a little too much steering and may have to settle the car down to my liking.

I found it to be rotating to much in the rear, I tried a few different things which definitely helped slow this down and car was feeling a lot better.

Changes tried from kit settings

1st change - camberlinks in the lower inner holes on front and rear towers (Kit is upper holes)

2nd change - 2mm of washers under the camberlink on the rear hub

3rd change - spacers underneath the wishbone mounting blocks in the rear

Next I will try removing the bulkhead screw and also going to try widening front and rear track.

Default Bulkheads

Hi, Just wondering for those of you that still have the original Phi still -will the bulkheads on the new 09 fit the old Phi07 chassis? I have a lot of older Phi stuff and if a quick fix to get the lipo to fit better is to just buy the new bulkheads I may just do that when they become available. Thanks!
