Still chasing some rear traction issues though...
what track are you running on and what is your setup, rear traction is usually quite easy to get with the Photon,

I got the exo chassis and want to run the servo the other way to make more room. Does anyone know the Xray servo saver part number that they recommend using with it. Xray makes more then one so I want to get the correct one.

I have been told that it does not work as the top piston is slightly larger in diameter,

you may be getting bad information....I just did the swap the pistons around..
ps the Tamiya piston is larger than the Photon piston...btw

BTW there's something about tamiya shock piston...TFR is slight smaller than Tamiya standard piston ..the Tamiya stock piston is 10.07 OD..it won't fit thur Photon shock

No experience with Tamiya, but couldn't you just chuck them in a dremel and file away?

If you want to try some different pistons check out the T.O.P. optional shock pistons. Machined with either two or three 1.0 or 1.2mm dia holes
