Wow you used the 306 springs on the front in 10.5? What ride height? I'll give it a shot, but I believe It will be a bit soft. Thanks for the suggestion though!

The secret is the rear diff Yeah of course! I'm looking forward to trying the car out on asphalt for the first time. 10.5 so that if I blow out bad, at least it will look fast while I do it I'll share what I find out with ya....you all running 10.5 and up outdoors at debbies this year?

Hahaha! Before the start of the mains, do a flying crane pose before the sound of the tone....then all the other drivers will be thrown off and you can get a good start

Yeah. We can't wait to get outside and open these Tekins up. 17.5 and open mod, but I think we'll be keeping it realistic with 10.5s. At least for a couple of weeks.

Yip 10.5 with a Tekin RS setup is just about as quick as a 4.5 / 5.0, down the straight there's nothing to choose between the 2 they're really close and infield the 10.5 is a little quicker because it's more drivable.

Default E.J. Reedy Setup

E.J.

Reading the posts, you now use 324 front springs & 1.2mm shock piston holes.

What effect did the changes make on handling?

Thanks

I just wanted to say hats off to the TopRacing Team for an amazing TC.
I run my Photon at our local track Fastcats, and I must say my Photon is one of the most dialed cars I have ever driven in indoor carpet. I started with base setup, but did some adjustments to make it real aggressive and dialed. It does everything I want it to do, carries tons of corner speed and i can throw it hard into corners no problem.

Here are a few pics of my Photon.

That really goes a long way with me.

Hi Mazmo, I've been using the 1.2mm shock pistons the entire time. I made a mistake when writing down the setup. For some reason the at Speedworld the 306's in the front felt better to me. My local track the 324's in front feel better, I think it just comes down to driver preference for the particular track.
