Coptimized!

What's the deal with that mount, anyway? Is there some tricky angle on the CF piece they just can't machine right or what?

Its hard to see in the pictures what it does. It comes with a longer Inside servo mount that you mount to the chassis. The left (Outside) mount you flip over and mount it to the graphite plate on top instead of the chassis. Then you take the left screw out of the bellcrank and put a spacer on top of the bellcrank. Then you screw the graphite piece down to the left left servo ear (upside down), left bellcrank and right servo mount. So the servo actually floats off of the chassis and you can change how high you want to make if float by loosening the screws and raising or lowering it. Once you mount it all its pretty solid but you can actually see the chassis flex under the servo when you slightly twist the car. And you can cut the damn nub off the left side.

OK so I'm done for tonight. Just uploaded my latest pics online at https://picasaweb.google.com/racerlog/PhotonEX and added some build hits to http://racerlog.com/wiki/T.O.P._Photon_EX . Within my pictures you'll see a few the non-kit parts:
- top aluminum v2 knuckles
- top aluminum rear hubs
- xray 4 degree c-hubs
- xray 50mm ecs
- side piece racing mira outdrives
- 66t 48p spur
- spektrum S6070
- misc red lock nuts, counter sunk washers and shims
- top high/low roll center blocks (haven't looked into the kit ones yet)
- yokomo gear diff (haven't looked into this yet either..)
- titanium turnbuckles
- top 18mm rod ends used on 1/2 of the upper camber links

There are many great parts included in the kit:
- aluminum camber plates
- carbon battery holder
- quick change spur gear holder
- gear diff

Make sure you have some lock tight handy before you start this car build!

He didnt use it because he is trying to get the car built quickly and he already had a yokomo diff built.

Here is an action shot of my electronics layout for the car. Yes - there are wires everywhere. While some might say "don't your cars always look like that?" -- this car will be tight looking. Since Larry's car is so light on the electronics side I'm going to mount two Side Piece Racing Seis Fans -- one for the motor, and one for the speedo (that just happens to be blowing on the motor too.. ssshhhh)



More later..

I made one new cut this morning. There is a graphite inside battery brace that has 3 adjustment holes. I cut two of the three holes to allow my receiver to move more inbound.
