I'm not sure if any information has been posted on this forum pertaining to a Modifiable PDF of the Photon, although a few friends had asked if I would make them a modifiable setup sheet similar to those that we have for Xray.

So naturally being the friend that I am.......... I made them this copy of the Photon Setup Sheet, if you have any questions or if there is anything you would like to see differently, please feel free to pm me.

Enjoy ............Alex

Alex, any thoughts on why that file doesn't open in Foxit reader? I don't think I could force myself to download Adobe Reader for just that file...

You gonna get a Photon Thomas? You will not regret it. Especially when paying for parts!

For the over rotation of the Photon in the center of the corner - please test these things:

#1 - Move weight forward in the car. The Photon is a little rear heavy (especially with everyone stacking weight for the Lipo's). I balanced my car left/right and then added 3-4 of the 7g weight blocks beside the front spool to test with more weight forward. This helped this problem and smoothed the car out. Also, you can use a bigger spur/pinion combo to move the motor more forward and this may also help.
HA!

And to think only a couple pages ago I was catching flack over putting a little weight in the back of my front bumper. Suckas!!!

Just messing around.

But seriously put some weight up there. About 20g or so will do it.

Come on now, that's slander. I just dislike Adobe.

Well here we go again...
I was told my second run of kits would be available in August.
It would appear that TOP is concentrating on FOAM versions for now and my kit is looking more and more like a September baby. Looks like I'm going to have to nurse my 416 along for a while and put off converting it to a VTA until later.
I have been waiting very patiently.... I'm not exactly happy but good things come to those who wait. Tires ...Motor... Speedo... Servo... "SPEED BUGGY" lol.... oops , No chassis?!

No, Im certain Goop was just stating that he has yet to receive a foam kit so the foam kits must not be the hold-up on the second batch of rubber kits.
