I'll most likely only be racing on large asphalt tracks. My EX will be on its way tomorrow (!!!) and I'm super stoked to get back into touring car...just a little boggled by this.
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.
