haha, no one listens to this slow guy anyway I will say that the latest "hanulec" build for shocks last at least 4x longer than what we were doing in the winter. I only changed the orings at the nats out of fear.

OK, finally bought a Photon (used). Works amazingly well! Finally a car that turns when I want it to, with grip to spare!

Got the Exoteck chassis and changing my set up slightly, and rebuilding the shocks. Which O rings to use, as Amain stocks 30* and 40*?

the 40 degree ones (darker aqua blue color)

Check out this page for some good tips. I think Hanulec put this all together.

Just had my 1st run with this car. All I got to say is this car has so much steering its insane. I am only just moving my wheel on all the turns.

First race meeting tomorrow will let you all know how I go.

First race with the car today, I had never run on this layout and making a come back after not really racing since 2004.

First run I had a issue with my pinion coming loose, after that I must say I was really happy with the car.

I set the fastest lap, TQ'D and won all 3 mains I couldn't be happier with the TOP Photon car.

Hope you all had good weekends with you cars

cheers
Jason
