Previously, I had the only car with 37 laps on our track. Today we had another driver put down 37 while I followed him. I started the day with a set of new tires and TQ'ed with 37/6:04. Knocked another 1/10th off the fast lap and layed down 37 laps 4 times today. This car is on fire.

Anyone know what caged thrust bearing fits the diffs on the Photon? Do any of the McMaster thrusts fit and what is the part #?

Also, I want to run 6 degree front caster blocks for foam carpet. I was told the Xray blocks basically drop in. Put I need the "steering bushings" also and they are really expensive compared to other companies similar products. Does anyone know what other bushings will fit in the Xray 6 degree blocks?

I have the newest USA edition kit and was wondering how many of the coned washers I need to use in the diff and the orientation of them. Thanks.

Back in the day of the original T2, I think we would use one from a TC4 or TC3 in a pinch.. Not 100% on that though.

Can't answer you about the 6 degree hubs as I've never tired. I know other people have some I'll let them chime in.

I use all the come washers in this orientation ()()().

I've done the 6 deg blocks 2 ways. The easiest (not cheapest) way is to simply use xray steering blocks as well as the 6 deg castor blocks. With the TOP steering block a fellow driver showed me a trick to glue a spacer to the top of the steering block. Works like a charm. There might be a touch of friction this way but I never noticed a problem.

All you have to do is sand them a little bit to fit in the arm. You have to use the Xray C-hub bushings. As far as I know there is no other bushings that work in those c-hubs. You'll also need to put a .5mm washer above the knuckle if you run the TOP knuckle to take out the play.

Great job Larry! Car look great. In Cali last week team driver Eric Albano won the carpet madness in 17.5 rubber.
