I use them. You must make the holes a bit bigger but they fit.

.3 sec faster for SW coupled with .1 sec slower for deteriorating skills = .2 faster

second time out with the car this weekend and it was just awesome, couldn't believe how it felt compared to my old car. Just seemed to go round the track at one speed (not stop/start), handled beautifully and with some minor tweaks suggested by the team drivers present at the event, I managed to get to within a lap of the event winner

The best thing for me was how consistent the laptimes were.. my quickest lap was within 0.4 seconds of my average

Can't wait to get out again with it !

the Photon has a nice "flow" to it... you can enter the corner so fast, carry so much speed thru and out of the corner with such ease and smoothness....

and teh car is very consistent... my solo runs usually result in laps timings within a +/- delta of 0.30 secs from the average......

My car was good. not super but good.
I must change my setup. I drove this weekend with the V203 and I had so much power that I was flying. The only problem was, that there were also corners in the track.
The other problem was, was that the back was so stable that what I do, the car doesn't brake out.
I removed grip and it kept the same. So it's time for the big setup change.
I remove even more to in and change my roll center.
Also want the medium plates and top plate. But this is for later. First I will try to remove more grip and than I will see what it does.

Tonight I will start with my car. I have also a new transponder from AMB. lookes nice with the car
The Tekin RS Pro fit's also very well.

EJ, will TOP come with aluminium steering blocks and uprights?
I'm underweight with the car. I need to reach the 1350 and I don't want to use any weight because my car is now perfectly in balance. I use the TOP lipo's and they are about the same weight as my steering servo, Tekin rs Pro and motor together.
I want to put the belt on the other side This way I can move everything even more to the inside.
The car is great. the power killed my old setup. I don't have the skills for handling a mod with 2 cell lipo.
I can handle a 10,5 with 2 cell lipo but Tekin made a monster. I can;t handle that o good. My qualification yesterday was ok. I qualified 4th. Missing all the corners. The finals I was 5th after 2 heads but the last head I broke down.
The other driver improved because 2 others also dropped out of the race.

I have lost by the way all the grip roll. all my improvements worked well for that.

I still love the car the most from all I ever had. Can't wait to race again. the car drives very easy and I hope as I changed my top plates to the medium that it will be a bit directer.
Also do I want to red turn buckles. They look good on the car.
And a low profile servo.

Hi guys.


Tested last weekend for the http://www.dhi-cup.dk this coming weekend, and the car was good and fast, i could follow the fast drivers, even with my slower lrp x11 motor.
Went almost back to basic rubber set-up, but changed roll center because of grip roll with the mazda speed body.

And i am very happy to hear about the power in the tekin speedo, as i has jut ordered a rs pro with redline motor, with set-up do you use for the speedo?



Thanks
