Jason, they are for the 416WE and I believe Spec-R makes them. You can buy them from www.speedtechrc.com.

Default RACE REPORT

There were 8 people running Photon's last week at the USORC (United States On Road Championships). We had at least one car in the A Main for every class we entered.

Cliff Dodd made the "A" in the Sportsman class.

Josh Cyrul finished 2nd in the Modified class with some waaayyy cool prototype stuff.

Myself and Justin Lyons made the Trans Am "A" finishing 3rd and 9th.

Myself and Dustin Layne made the "A" in the largest class of the event (Stock TC) finishing 8th and 3rd.

Dustin Layne also made the 13.5 "A" and did so with a 17.5 motor!

All in all it was a great time with some terrific racing.

Great job. The car is fantastic and it shows with the percentage of drivers running it compared to the results being provided.

I can't wait to see what the new parts are. New stuff is always fun! I wonder what the new shapes of the diff ball holes are.

yes I think he likes them.
I love my top shocks. best I ever had.

Top plate looks like one that was on the prototype of the photon.

I'm going to change to a stiffer top plate.
