Having a 1.5mm shim on hand may also be useful for aligning the bearings to the belts.

Default Some Photon pics

I got this kit in the first batch that hit the hobby store, but didn't think to post some pics until now .

Great car. Had some trouble with the outdrive cups, but the new alloy ones should take care of that.

I could have sworn that someone recently posted a spring comparison chart comparing the black xray springs to the top springs. However after looking through nearly 40 pages of this thread I am about to pull my hair out.

Anyone want to take credit for this post in question and point it out?

Anyone know of an upgrade or fix to the steering bellcrank. I snapped one yesterday with a servo saver. A nice little red anodized unit would sure look nice.

Car looks good. How'd that guy in the green and white car feel about you driving through him after his clean pass when you tapped?

Nice race. Your car looked ballistic on the straight away compared to the pink car. Team Epic power, right?
