Hi Daniel,No can do mate,my woman would remove my bits with a blunt instrument if I triedI race toooo much as it is!! Friday night is how I "earn" my racing pass card for Sundays..Mind you I have just spent 10k on a new kitchen so this should free me up for at least a month!!....Get your backside and Photon down to SHMCC one Sunday and have a play on our "Moguls" for a change.

Default PHOTON

Just got my T.O.P. parts order today and the motor mount braces work so sweet for servo mounts.I hated the stock plastic ones however the braces are a little spendy.

The 40 is a slightly harder o-ring. I prefer the 40's over the 30's. Seem to seal better.

Are any of you guys running the 6 degree xray blocks and are they a direct fit?

Default under weight

my car is way underweight. I've already filled the trough of the plastic battery holder with lead. Doing that has balanced the car nicely left to right, but it's still substantially under weight. so my question........can someone please advise on what brand of metal weight (the type that goes under the battery) fits well on the photon's standard carpet chassis. I need more weight and I'd rather not put it ouboard or towards the front or the back of the chassis. Seems to me as if having the ballast directly under the battery does seem to be the ideal spot. I just need to know which one of the under-the-battery machined weight plates fits best in the battery slots of the photon's chassis plate. please advise, and thanks.

How far under weight are you? The center battery brace weight may be a good option.
