Also I want to congratulate Kyle Bergstrom for TQ'ing the 17.5 Ramping class. The mains didn't go so well, but still a great job!

Yes, the Photon TQ'd two classes at the Reedy.

Other notables:

Doug Lemmons made the a main in 17.5 Ramping

In 17.5 Non-Ramping there were two Photons in the show. Ron Schurr and Mark Day.

I did decent with a 13th place finish in Invite. The car was great, it was mostly driver error. LOL I'll post my setup soon as it's fairly different then what I normally run.
Great job Team TOP at Reedy.

Placing 13th in invite is very, VERY respectable considering the competition Good job EJ

Nice job guys. add me to the list of people that would love to see Jesse Stark's mod setup and other details that aren't on a setup sheet, like tire prep, ecs?, etc.

Wow, fast car and great driver

Thanks EJ and all the other Top Racing guys for chimming in here with the support. I ran the old original lipo chassis. I've had that same chassis and car for over a year and a half and it's the 2.25mil to boot. 324 spring up front and 306 spring in back. 50 weight shock oil in front and 45 weight oil in back was the real sweet spot for the car. I ran the steering rods in the back hole of the steering knuckle with the inside of the link pushed as far forward as possible with a #11 ackerman which I believe is different than what anybody else might be running. Since the chassis is so thin I ran roll centers on high/low setting.

The car was great. I'm glad we could get the Photon up there and get a win for Top Racing.

I would love to have EJ get some of the new narrow chassis made in 2.25 mil(hint hint) or possibly Exotek since they are coming out with one real soon. It just has the right combo of flex and still able to stay flat deep in the corner.

Just wanted to say a quick thanks to EJ and OD for all the help. It was amazing how well the car worked with the little practice I had with it.

Any chance of a set up sheet?
