Just talked to OD and he confirmed what Arvin said. A fourth hole was added to the rear arms. I'm not sure what position it adds but be careful with side to side arm mounting. Don't mix them up.
There are new light weight arms in the works. I don't know if they will flex more or not. They are using a different material for these arms.
New kits are expected by the end of the month.

The 4th hole is the farthest hole out on the arm. Josh liked running them I think. He put them on my foam car in Vegas but after farther testing I just didn't really like them this far out with the setup I was comfortable with. Plus I had to put on longer shock bottoms or I couldn't get enough droop. He had good results with them though so maybe give them a shot.

There are new front arms in the bag with the 4 hole rears. The only change is the outer piece that goes around the C hub is rounded more so it doesn't rub on certain rims.

I always run the 40 Degree Orings in my shocks. I just like the feel it gives them.

I'm also running a chassis similar to the new one to be released. It has the cutout under the motor and the motor guard. its 2.25 Quasi graphite. It was really good last week on high bite asphalt but I haven't run it on normal asphalt yet. I'm hoping to this weekend and I'll report back.

EFFECTS OF FRONT ROLL CENTER ADJUSTMENT
Lower:
• Increases on-throttle steering.
• Decreases car’s responsiveness.
• Decreases weight transfer at front of car, but increases grip.
• Increases chassis roll.
• Better on smooth, high-traction tracks with long fast corners.
Higher:
• Decreases on-throttle steering.
• Increases car’s responsiveness.
• Increases weight transfer at front of car, but decreases grip.
• Decreases chassis roll.
• Use in high-grip conditions to avoid traction rolling.
• Better on tracks with quick direction changes (chicanes).
EFFECTS OF REAR ROLL CENTER ADJUSTMENT
Lower:
• Increases on-throttle grip.
• Decreases weight transfer at rear of car, but increases grip.
• Increases grip, decreases rear tire wear.
• Increases chassis roll.
• Use to avoid traction rolling at corner entry (increases rear grip).
• Better on low-traction tracks.
Higher:
• Decreases on-throttle steering.
• Increases weight transfer at front of car, but decreases grip.
• Increases car’s responsiveness.
• Decreases chassis roll.
• Use in high-grip conditions to avoid traction rolling in mid-corner and corner exit.
• Better on tracks with quick direction changes (chicanes).
Front roll center has most effect on on-throttle steering during midcorner
and corner exit.
Rear roll center affects on- and off-throttle situations in all cornering
stages.

Default TOP GUN SHOOTOUT EVENT T-SHIRT

I know not all readers of this thread are able to attend but you dont have to make the event to want the shirt so here's a little update related to the TOP GUN SHOOTOUT.

I am going to order some event shirts for the TOP GUN SHOOTOUT. I will only shirts on a pre-paid basis. The front of the shirt will have a small TGS logo on the left chest area, and the back will have the TGS Avitar (attached below) and a possibly a movie quote from TOP GUN.

The cost of these shirts is $16 each.

If you would like to have one of these shirts, send me your Size and quantity requested and I will send you the PayPal info. If you prefer to mail a check the mailing address is listed below. The order cutoff is
April 30th.
There will not be any extras available at the track, so make sure to get you order placed if you want one.

I see that A Main Hobbies has the Photon in stock again, but it's for foam spec. Is there a hobby shop that sales the rubber spec or are they the same!

A Main got some of the last available foam kits. The foam kits came with 2 diffs, different springs, sway bars, wings, top deck and chassis. Rubber kits will be available around the end of this month. The latest rubber kits will have the new lipo chassis in them, and the kits sold in the US and Canada will be USA Spec kits with the extra suspension parts
