So finally received my new photon!!!!!

been reading this thread for awhile now and have a quick Q.. mine came with updated items, but i do have 4 red bones..shouldnt it be black steel bones for the front?

Also made a mistake with spool and now I have 2 stripped screws inside the cups looks like i have to get new spool and break off the plastic spool peice... oh well

It will depend on track size. I'm running 98/34 with rubber tires on 100 ft straight carpet track.

Call Michael at TOP USA. Great guy to deal with and I've never had to wait more than two days for anything I've ordered.

With the updated kits, the bones are all alloy. It's worth getting the steel bones for the front.

I bent the alloy bones first time out (far too much crashing), but the plastic/steel spool has held up.

I can't answer about the store. I know that Michael is very busy trying to keep up with the demand for the car. If you call him, he will get you what you need. He doesn't bite.

Another win for the Photon this week. Couldn't get a clean qualifier and qual'ed 3rd. Had some good luck in the first lap and moved into second. Leader traction rolled which put me in the lead on lap 2. I led every lap after that. This car was on point.
