Nothing like a juicy one on the drivers stand as a secret weapon.
We will see who blinks...

They pre ordered kits from us about a month ago so they could start selling them. They will be getting the kits they ordered soon. Not sure how long it takes them to process and get them out. They say arrival "July 1".

Sounds good. I was just pointing it out. I'm considering this kit when I am ready for a new car.

OH! and just in case anyone is desperate. Photon on Ebay

I gave my Photon it's first run today at the track and I'm pretty impressed. With the kit setup the car was very planted and carried excellent corner speed, but I couldn't get enough bite out of the front end. I didn't have a lot of time to test but tried a lower front RC and inclined the front shocks one hole and it was a bit better but still remained a bit pushy. I've made some more changes since I got home & will see how they go at the track over the weekend at the cars first race meet

One other thing, I hit the boards reasonably hard and ripped one of the grub screws out of the radial ackerman plate. I suggest putting normal screws up from the underside of the plates into the ball joint to prevent this from happening

Is this in asphalt or carpet? If you are on asphalt, try my Reedy setup, its got tons of steering. Or you can also try going to a 306 or 324 front spring.
