I have overcome this with some longer screws, and nuts etc. That kind of gives me an excuse for getting the CEFX.

I do wonder - and this is kind of aimed at GURU JOSH if the CEFX evolution is continually getting spec changes, or if it is gonna be updated and changed in the next 6 months or so. PArt of the reason I switched to the T.O.P was because, unlike XRAY (which I love) and now most other kits, it is not continually changed with substantial overhaul kits.

Out of interest, with such a small mount for the motor, aren't their any heatsink problems - ie - overheating motor, or does the chassis cut-out effectively counteract the lack of heatsinking?

Your question will best be answered on the CEFX EVO thread. Most guys who have the kit frequent there as well as Josh.

You run the rubber tire springs no matter if your on carpet or asphalt. In carpet you Hi to the heavier side, in asphalt you run the softer springs. You really only need to adjust your front spring. Some people like the 289 rear spring but I've yet to try it myself.

Loving the Photon I bought secondhand had to have a new one, Santa came early in the process of building my second one now. Can't wait for the NHRCCC track to be finished

Does Lipo spec come with all the spare arms, knuckles, uprights etc? Can we get these off Top Racing website?

Default FRONT ARMS

I NEED TO GET SOME SPARES FOR MY PIT BOX.

I note the front arms do not come in pairs. I get the impression that Tamiya Short arms (which come in pairs) fit the PHOTON - is that correct?

speaking of suspension arms, I'm curious about these new lightweight ones:
http://www.topracingusa.com/store/pr...oducts_id=2743

It says 1 piece, but it doesn't specify a front or rear arm. If I order 4, will you send 2 front, 2 rear?

1 front and 1 rear per order.

I'd like to tell you positively that they fit but no one at our track runs a Tamiya car. I suppose they would since the CEFX car was built off the photon and the tamiya arms can be used on it.
