Daniel, very impressive! I've only managed to bend a lower hinge pin screw, but never break a plastic part or a hinge pin.

I'm currently using a tc5 40t pulley with the Scythe steel spool. It works great and would keep running the Scythe spool but spares are hard to come by and the steel versions are no longer in production.

Can anyone confirm if the tc5 spool will work on the photon? How about the HB Cyclone version 3 spool?

I've read that various spools work such as the Yokomo BD spools but I find it easier to locate AE parts.

Any trouble areas on the car that I should be aware of? I just ordered the typical spares (arms, knuckles, hubs) Anything I'm missing? Thanks.

TC5 spool will not works on Photon,it is a;ittle too wide in the bulkhead...
yokomo BD5 spool is too weak , BD5 Plastic spool will break in the hard impact...

Don't know yet. I just bought the car and haven't received it yet. The bellcrank was out of stock at Amain so I also assumed that it was breaking alot. I also saw a post about using a med servo saver to help with that. Are the screws too short or just bend in an accident?

Has anyone broken a steering bellcrank while using a servo saver?

Once you put the servo saver in all the breakage stops...at least the bell crank. I have the Kimbrough Black colored one and I believe it is meduim.

Hi guys,
Sorry to bother once again.
Listen to the advise for setting up my photon last time and tried and tested.
Set up is great, sharp tight turning and manage to hit personal best timing for the 11.5T brushless. But one thing i notice. Tire wear is scary. After each run there will be tons of tire dust on my body shell. and the Solaris (Race controlled tires here) just wears out after 6 packs.

Any idea why???
