Not a Photon expert, but I would start with a good rubber tire setup and go from there. I dont think it will be that much differrent for RCGT or VTA.

I didn't write down my RCGT Reedy winning setup.

But I do remember using my basic rubber setup with softer springs. 289 front and rear.

I finally got the chance to run my Photon today for the first time at my local carpet track. I'm in love Built it to kit specs with some setup changes I thought might work for me, and it was on rails from the get go. Average fast times for our current layout is high 11's, low 12's. In practice I ran 28 consecutive 11 second lap times with two, 11.3's I cannot wait till I actually get to race the car.

It needs to have a slightly stiffer front spring for carpet than what I have on it now, but other than that its dialed for me. I'm so happy I got a Photon! Thank you E.J. and Mike

P.S. And I'm still on the same set of Solaris S compound tires lol! 60+ runs and counting
