hi i run my photon on carpet ( mixed and fast flowing aswell ) , its excelent and consistent , im just after some more off power steering and to be better on direction changes/chicanes ..

its pretty much stock set up except ...

for the foam top deck
hpi pinks on the front and silvers on the rears
tamiya 3 pistons , 416 bladders and 1mm hole in the top cap for 0% rebound etc
anti roll bars 1.4front and 1.2 rear .. and a few little suttle changes ..

like i said its really nice to drive.. i just want a slight change thats not going to make it twitchy / inconsistent ..


going throu the pages , i keep reading about modifiying the foam to deck and cutting the front -rear brace off it .. also fitting the medium wings ...
will any of this help ..

ive also been advised by an excelent uk team driver to adjust my front roll centres , but i didnt get time to try this at my last meeting ..

and i try not to adjust something that i dont understand fully , as we dont get any practice time before our next heat etc ....

Marcos, I think there's something wrong with you pdf, it won't download. Have downloaded other setups just to make sure it wasn't the adobe reader I have. Yours is the only one I can't download.

Marcos' setup. No need to scan it. Direct conversions always look much better.

I agree with you 110%. Most sites for RC car-related companies are sub-par in my opinion.

I heard that TOP was going through a redesign a couple months ago. Not sure what ever came out of that.

OOCH! haha well i dont run the car i just wanted to try that layshaft set-up on something else that i have as it looks cool and should work for what i need it for. but as for rc-related sites for the most part they are all alot easier to navigate and find what you want but as for the top site well all i can say is hopefully they update it and make it easier for the people who do run the car. not trying to flame just saying my opinion is all
