Default T.O.P. Racing "Photon" 1/10 EP Touring Car

Probably time to start a new thread, specifically for the new release of T.O.P. Racing's Photon. The new car is expected Summer 2009.

For T.O.P. Racing distributors in your country, please check out T.O.P. Racing's HQ website here.

If we're all really nice to Josh Cyrul, I mean REALLY nice, he can post pictures of the car.

Eh Josh? *nudge nudge* Eh? Eh?

for what i have seen i want the car
lot of improvements and i think for what i have seen is everything from a high quality.

I have some question for Josh but i will ask them after the car is on the marked or when there are pictures online.
I now he will not answer them because than he just can show the pictures right away.

and now it's time to put the car on the marked as soon as possible.
I want to race with it.

hmmm...there seems to be a lot of hype about this car. I may have to take a sneak peek at EJ's car the next time I see him at the track. I might want one in the future.

it's not a car that will blow you away with ingenuity, persay. the brilliance is in the logic. for example, the ackermann is adjustable but it won't change the steering speed or the end points in doing so. is that exciting? it is if you realize that most racers don't grasp kinematics very well. it also means that when you 'test ackermann', you're not inadvertently testing 5 other changes.

i've seen this car repeatedly at all the northeast grand slam races. (incidentally, josh won pro touring for the series with this car). in my opinion, it only catches your eye if you understand the idiosyncracies of most tc's. i think josh and top have found a way for this car to stay adjustable enough for the seasoned pro, without causing headaches and additional spending responsibilities for the average racer.

therein lies the brilliance. mark my words, it's at the top of the list in raw, solid functionality.

here's picture of the car from the ngs races:
