Hello Kobiwan,

Foam kits are available now. I hope you choose the Photon. But, you won't go wrong with either car.

The manual doesn't state the number of teeth, but instead, the lengths.

TC-PDT006M-1 189mm Rear Belt x 1
TC-PDT007M-1 516mm Front Belt x 1

I told my local hobby shop to order me a Photon. He said he had 2 on back order, so if you say they are available now, hopefully they will be on there way to the shop. I can't wait.

I know Josh runs mod and I think Larry runs 13.5, but does anyone have a 17.5 Foam set-up to start with? Also what other springs should I buy that doesn't come with the Kit that I will need?

Here is our list of springs and their intended application:

PS-TR15550 Shock Spring 393gf/mm , 22.0lb/in Rubber Tire
PS-TR15575 Shock Spring 367gf/mm , 20.5lb/in Rubber Tire
PS-TR15600 Shock Spring 344gf/mm , 19.2lb/in Rubber Tire
PS-TR15625 Shock Spring 324gf/mm , 18.1lb/in Rubber Tire
PS-TR15650 Shock Spring 306gf/mm , 17.1lb/in Rubber Tire
PS-TR15675 Shock Spring 289gf/mm , 16.2lb/in Rubber Tire
PS-TF17625 Shock Spring 626gf/mm , 35.0lb/in Foam Tire Front
PS-TF17650 Shock Spring 591gf/mm , 33.1lb/in Foam Tire Front
PS-TF17675 Shock Spring 560gf/mm , 31.3lb/in Foam Tire Front
PS-TF17700 Shock Spring 532gf/mm , 29.8lb/in Foam Tire Front
PS-TF17725 Shock Spring 507gf/mm , 28.3lb/in Foam Tire Front
PS-TF14575 Shock Spring 347gf/mm , 19.4lb/in Foam Tire Rear
PS-TF14600 Shock Spring 325gf/mm , 18.2lb/in Foam Tire Rear
PS-TF14625 Shock Spring 306gf/mm , 17.1lb/in Foam Tire Rear
PS-TF14650 Shock Spring 294gf/mm , 16.2lb/in Foam Tire Rear
PS-TF14675 Shock Spring 274gf/mm , 15.3lb/in Foam Tire Rear

I've also attached a PDF incuding their coils sizes.

I'm pretty sure Larry's 13.5 setup with translate to a 17.5 setup. We'll have to wait until after Vegas (next week) to see what he comes up with. From what I hear, his car is pretty good. We will also have Goop running both 13.5 and 17.5.

What are the different characteristics between...lets say...the 294's and the 289's? They are both 16.2 lbs but springs are different sizes...

Are the rubber tire springs linear and the foam tire springs progressive?
289= linear, 294= progressive?
