I wouldn't recommend running a gear diff on low bite or high bite for that matter. The gear diff tends to make the car "stay in the corner" so on Corner exit you'll be chasing your tail trying to correct the lose off condition. I feel into that trap at the Halloween classic.

i'd suggest starting with the new Lipo Chaiss (Stiff - 2.25mm isotropic carbon fiber) that is included within the current kit - International Edition (or US Spec): T.O.P. Racing "Photon" 1/10 EP Touring Car

i'd recommend starting w/ the most recent setup that Larry posted - T.O.P. Racing "Photon" 1/10 EP Touring Car

nope - but the concepts are the same. you can download the XRay setup guide for free - http://www.teamxray.com/teamxray/sho...p?file_id=6143

i'd also recommend picking up a copy of Martin's setup guide - http://www.xxxmain.com/bookz.shtml . this book is available from a ton of different retailers...

Got to run my Photon today... finally. Its not bad, but needs some work. I have the optional camber plates, and like how the longer link feels in and out of a corner.

I tried looking at Fairtrace's setup, but it wont save OR open...
