The carpet I race on the grip is low because we have a offroad track on the other side

I race at mikeshobbyshop in Texas www.mikeshobbyshop.com
if u go there and click on the track cam u can see our track
Shuan hey its Robert you are reading too far into the breaking of parts. When the car was first released the spool was made out of a little too soft a material. Causeing the cups to eventually spin and strip in the their seats. Since then the problem has been resolved. All kits now use the v2 spool made of the stiffer material. So all is good! If you order a car all you really need for parts are the usual, arms, chubs, steering blocks, and rear hubs. Also might want to grab a set of the red cups for the spool as you saw on my car an lastly a Kimbrough medium servo saver (black one ) and you should be set.

Does anybody know what parts will work on the scythe from the photon? Or if any of them will work? Looking to get a scythe for a good deal and wondering if I can find parts for it. Anything will help. Thanks

The cars are based off two different platforms and don't share very many parts. TOP USA will continue to support the Scythe. There are still a lot of racers wheeling them around.

FYI: The Photon suspension will fit onto the Scythe. With proper shimming of course.

The Vegas setup I ended up with is attached. I started with copying Juan's, and just made a couple changes.
