In the past with other cars I've had I would just shim it at the wheel.

I'm quite satisfied with the car. EJ and Juan were repeatedly doing 10.8s laps in 13.5t rubber, and I somehow managed that feat in round 3 of qualifying but never again. 10.8s is pretty much as fast as anyone went, including the eventual winner. I didn't break anything, and I finished every run I attempted - including all practices, qualifiers, and mains. I re-oiled two shocks.

I think we all had good setups, but our lack of high traction carpet experience kept us from really fine-tuning it. In my experience, the car has a very wide setup window in which it is good. That was very nice, because I was able to try changes and still have quality runs. I never had a crap run because I made the car undriveable or even challenging to drive.

Thanks again to EJ, Juan, and Michael for helping me with the car and a few other things, like tires and ESC settings.

Default understeer

Hello guys,

I have been runnning the photon this weekend and the car was really good I nearly found a perfect set up, but during the heats the performance of the car came down after 3 minutes, the car understeer, some people told me that this is because I overheat the front tyres, is this true? how can I make the car more constant during the heat?

thank you in advance

Nitro Ho you are just a hater who has no idea what he is talking about. I asked you to send me your "brothers" setup and you never did.

First of all on foam tires the car def does not push with a good setup on it. Anyone who saw my car this weekend will agree push is not an issue

Secondly I believe we will be coming out with 6 degree blocks sometime in the future.
