I have to say with the help of Fairtrace, Hanulec and the GOAT my photon was really good at the birds. I failed to execute, but the main lesson is that even though the car generally "feels" good, paying attention to the details can pay off big on the track. Need to try the new arms and narrow chassis soon

If youre running 17.5, the uPro will do just fine. I recently got one and am impressed with it. It took me a few hours of assembly and disassembly and break-in to get it shimmed and spec'd out properly (the directions are close but not perfect)... but once thats done its butter baby!

The new arms have been out for a while, I just hadn't ordered a set yet, they are the LW version.

The chassis is the one posted a few pages back, a few guys at 'birds had them and they were nice, my car rubs the chassis more outdoors, so I'd like to try it there.

I was told it is at least a couple months away when I emailed topusa about that and a few other things last week.

YES! What he said... it doesnt come with one.

Today, my car was much better with a front gear diff and 100k. Its more consistent and verrry smooth.

I blew out another ball diff in the rear... any suggestions for fluid in a rear uPro? 3k? 5k? TIA...

Dave, Brother man I would start with 2K and go from there on our carpet. I think from there you will know right away if you need to go thicker or not.
