But I think an electronic editable one must be made first. Otherwise a photo if a printed / hand written one is good 4 me

I've gotten a bunch of spare parts built up for my EX
- shocks to 50.5mm length. 1.0 3 hole. 45 losi front. 40 losi rear. 324 front. 289 rear.
- high low suspension arm mounts
- LT wt arms
- front arms spaced to short wheelbase - 3.5mm of shim
- rear arms spaceing tbd
- spool built with Mira outdrives
- yokomo gear diff with 15wt losi
- 44.5 rear axles with filed down asc blades.
- xray 50mm ecs
- xray 4 degree chubs filed down to fit arms

Got a big list of items still to prep prior to kit arrival to make it race ready for Saturday

nothing on my wiki is necessary. nor is it officially sanctioned by TOP. it is just what i and some others are/will be doing.

asphalt - unnecessary.
carpet - think about it.

unfortunately $50-$100 lcd/ecs/c.v. drive shafts are very common in all different manufacture cars.

Hi S.Stew. I've been a team driver with rcracinguk ( T.O.P. distributor ) for about 3 years now and have used the Photon since its release. In this time, I have raced the car on various surfaces ( tarmac high grip/low grip and carpet high grip and low grip). I've raced this car on tracks layed out using drainage down pipes and tracks designed from bot-dots. So I feel confident when I suggest to you that the car as supplied as standard is totally acceptable and durable.

The only hop-up I could suggest to you is the axel pin holders which will allow you to run the cvd's without the small grub screw which would normally lock down on to the cvd pin and potentially bind or fall out. This is a low cost option that really works well.

I hope this helps.

Does the car generate more front end then the original? Just looks like your trying to find rear end grip

Yes it feels like the car has a lot more midcorner steering than the old Photon.
