What are my options for the main belt? Are there other belts that will fit? Or it is TOP only?

The last time I checked, for the front belt you need 513mm/172 tooth belt and only Top had that size. For the rear belt you need 189mm/63 tooth belt which HB, Yokomo and XRay have.

Thanks Arv I needed that run.

The team worked great together this week to find the right setup. I wish it would of happened a little earlier. We would of had more than 1 run to get it in.

Your feedback helped me a lot this week, thanks buddy.

I'm glad I was able to make the show with those couple bobbles in that race.

The car continues to work great for me. I could of qualified much higher if it wasn't for some speedo issues.

It was probably the toughest IIC to make the show yet in all classes.

I drove like crap in the main because the 12th scale main was still messing with my head.

Thanks to EJ and OD for the help along the way also. It was good meeting Jay too.

There is no new car, there is a prototype that is being tested and no one used it at the iic only the tried and true Photon. Results varied but all are listed on the iic web site.

Sorry Dragarcher "the prototype car" and I didn't know the event had a wedsite.

Also if this just a prototype why are places (redrc and RC Market) giving a date when it should be out and photos being released hence why I called it the new car. As it seems its coming out and not just a random prototype.

EJ tried the car during the first and/or second practice heats at the IIC, I talked to him breifly after and he said that there were a few changes that needed to be made and that the current set-ups will not transfer over to the new car. I would expect the car around the new year...

I dont know if it will fit but its the wrong amount of Teeth.

Get a Yokomo Gear diff if you want a good one. The yok one is pretty bullet proof.

Requires some shimming to fit in a Photon.
