Do You think that was the one on Picture?
I'll check it again but it is possible,on the other hand why they would delete the picture if thats the one on the car?

I'm pretty sure they are different chassis.

I really like that motor mount from the one JoJiAuE posted.

The suspension mounts in the pic that was deleted looked like they were red anodized mounts similar to the kind on a 417. It also had an interesting double post steering system. Too bad it wasn't a higher resolution pic.

Looks like I might have to add a 3rd Photon to my collection when the new kits are released.

Hey od. Looking for any new team drivers?

Got an interesting one here, what size are the steel bushings that go in the C hubs? I got two sets of spares, and 3 measure 4.04mm (too short, bind top or bottom), and 5 measure 4.20mm (too long, lots of extra play). ALL 8 of them measure 4.44mm in diameter, which is WAY too tight and they won't turn.

EDIT: OK, found a new, good set. .039mm x 4.20mm. Works perfectly, especially with a few .001 4mm shims, nice and tight.

Just send them back to TOP USA we will replace them. That chassis and mount are not TOP products. TOP is working with prototypes only. TOP is always trying to improve and update their cars.

That Tsais conversion for the Photon looks very nice, would love to see a fully built car.

The Photon has been around for 2+ years now i think, I would be extremely displeased if TOP have NOT been working on a new car.
The design pictured looked great, very clean and simple, all plastics were the same, so great for people coming from Photons.
But i wouldnt be too concerned (eg Jsin) TOP generally release info on new kits well ahead of when they are released. I would not expect anything until after Christmas at the earliest.

Things are definately looking up for TOP though.

Well My "EJ" chassis had been sitting for about two months. I Finally got it together and got a chance to run at TZ yesterday... All I have to say is WOW! The car felt totally different. It was a night and day difference. I cant wait to get more track time! The car could roll a lot more and not drag it was nice!

I'm having a little setup issue atm and now sure what to change

ATM I'm running kit setup apart from Medium low roll center in the front and Medium high in the rear.

The car has a spool in the front with a Upro gear diff in the rear.
The issue I have is the car is really well balanced apart from 2 corners 1 is a medium speed 90Deg corner where the car will understeer and I have to slow down to much on entry.

The other corner is a 180deg corner where the rear of the car is really loose on entry and seems to get worse towards the end of the run.

on all the other corners the car is 100% planted front and rear

the track is a outdoor tarmac track with low/medium grip.

Thanks for the help
