I finally got to race my Photon for the first time yesterday and its dialed! I tq'd, won, and set track record for fast lap on out current carpet layout. Only had one problem with the car, I forgot to tighten the spur gear lay shaft bolts and stripped a spur Lessoned learned, won't happen again

But finally, outdoor season is here! I'm going to run 10.5 for its maiden asphalt run. Does anyone have a suggestion on what front spring to use? If not I plan on just running EJ's 13.5 setup. But I'm just curious to see what others may have used on the front of the car.

Thanks!

I used the same as in the rear that came with the car but I changed back to the original springs.

Congrats Timmie. I knew it wouldn't take you long to dial it in, but 1 week is a little arrogant, don't you think? Hope to compare some asphalt setups with you this season.

I'm using the kimbrough medium servo saver. You may have to space the servo out a little to get the clearance you need between the arm and servo case.

The motorplate support TC-PCH014RD are perfect for this. Buy 2

I started doing that a few months ago. They work great.
