From the picture that is out there some changes have been made. I'll just say that. Changes for the better.

Also I have had an EX for longer than 5 months. TOP didnt want to release a new car until it was perfected.

I think people will be very happy with the new car when it is released.

I know too well how long the proto-types have been around and can't think of anyother make that would take as long.
Its great that they want to make sure the car is as perfect as they can make it.

I've been loyal from day 1 with the photon and had some good results along the way. I just hope people can remain as patent as me while watching the few have a good time with the EX.

They are developing a new car.... If they just release it now then they will need to revise it and then you will need to buy more gear...

I can understand why companies dont like to let consumers know about these things

You are quite right. As Larry said, the final car will not be the same as the one/s in the pictures you may have seen. News that there was a new car got out way too soon, due to an unauthorised photo someone posted. T.O.P. then made the decision to release some information, otherwise it would have been kept under wraps a lot longer

New Photon. As someone how recently acquired a Photon, was wondering if the current car can be upgraded to the new spec. or is it a completely new design? Really hoping it is upgradable....

Ciao Luppi
I think the car on the picture is a mix between a lot of different car parts
Some purple steering parts, some TOP parts, maybe Tamiya diffs, etc.
It's not the new car from T.O.P.

I ran the EX this weekend at the Snowbirds in Super Stock Touring.

There are alot of would of could of should ofs from me about this weekend but needless to say it had nothing to do with my equipment.

I had winning cars in all 3 classes I actually tried in.

I only ran modified to get some more time on the EX in high bite conditions.

I was able to get a couple 10.4s out of it in one round of Modified but I was only running 17.5 boosted in Modified.

I also ran my Photon a couple of times to get a good comparison.

I'm soo excited for the EX now after seeing the potential that it hass in high bite conditions.

I was excited for the main but I got dumped by Hayoto on the first lap and came out 10th. My transponder stopped counting after I checked in. I finished in the 5th spot even though it shows a DNS on the sheet. Not terrible for being taken out by a former world Champion.

Cant win them all I guess.

Good work from the rest of the team and all our customers out there.

It was good Meeting all of you, especially a guy named Nancy, yes Nancy.
