creative it is. I used two spacers, two sided tape, and shave the casing down a bit.

I finally got my Photon all set up this past weekend. The build was pretty easy. It drives incredibly well, especially considering the crappy radio and servo I threw in it. I will be changing both, but I had to see, at least basically, how the car drives. DAAAYUM, I love this car. Diff is smooth and didn't even loosen up on me after several sessions when I was getting my ESC set. I don't even have the new shocks or chassis and I think this thing is #%@*ing great. I'd have liked if the new shocks were in my kit, but the ones I got seem decent enough. Probably why the kit cost me less in Canadian dollars than the price everyone else has it listed at in USD. I bought it through muchhobby because they are the only LHS I could find that sells Photons and parts.

Anyway, I just felt like saying I love my Photon

Can't wait to race it for the first time. Before that though I have to decide on a proper race radio..DX3R, 4PK, M11X, 3PK, EX-10, etc.. There are always people that hate each one and always people that love each one. Tough choice. Send me a PM if you feel like giving some input on this.

Do any of the chassis allow you to swap the belts? I like the front belt to be on the lipo side. Electronics closer to the middle is nicer.

And balancing button holes... Do any of the newer chassis have them? I know there are the holes on the shock towers, but I prefer to balance with pins when possible.
