I've got the rubber kit with the foam lipo chassis. I ran it with sway bars and it was very good. I ran it without the sway bars and it seemed to handle better, but the lap times were slower. I've put them back on.

The new top deck screws are awesome. You can now crank the top deck on real tight without stripping the head.

BTW: Here a video of a Photon win. http://www.youtube.com/norcalhobbies.../1/rHpKOQYGWEs

Default Foam Wings

Hey Guys.

I'm a Danish Photon driver, and i've ordered the foam wings for my rubber Photon.

Has anyone tried these on a rubber Photon?
And how does it work?

My purpose with these wings, is to stiffen up the whole chassis. I've had some problems with grib-roll, on high traction tracks, and thought it might come from the soft chassis.
