Anyway, believe it or not, the hinge pins on the Xray T2 are the same diameter and length

Who'd have thought, eh ??

Well another great day with the Photon, the car performed great I TQ'ed 17.5 by over a lap on the field and still made quite a few brain fade bobbles. In the amain again way out front with about 1 min to go i had a speed control knocked out because of some aggressive driving and getting into trouble

but great day i will get a new pair of calipers and put my setup up or maybe fairtace can give it it started as his setup that we tweaked a bit for my style

What size wheel and diff bearings are used in the car?

What are the stock spring rates from the kit?

I got my own Photon yesterday and I started with the setup that I had on the car that I borrowed this Sunday.
After a few laps I changed some small things.
Now my car has a lot of steer even with the holes in my front tires.
The car is great.

I found that the default setup in the manual is a great place to start. I think the only thing I have changed is the toe to 0 degrees, and the diff washers to )))))) rather than ()()().

I now but I used a car from a club member. He made small changes to get some more steer on the car.
I started with his setup and after testing I found a better setup for our track.
Now I changed very small things and that was more because of the tires.
They were almost gone.

Also do I love an other setup than the standard setup.
This setup works better for me and yesterday the club member drove with my setup and was very happy with it. He found that the car has more steer and is still stable.
We have new coating on our tarmac and coating has a different grip than on other tracks.

Just to add to that.. You also want the V2 spool... Its made out of harder plastic and I believe the hole through the center is smaller so the screws really bite in. I know the spool i'm running right now has a lot of laps on it. It was used before I got it
