There isn't one. There was one offered from Photon by TOP. You can count the screws from the manual and then decide the brand you want to buy the screws from

Left side:
Servo: 44g

Transponder: 10g

receiver : 6.5g

speedo : 36g

Motor : 165g

Fan : 10g

Right side:

Battery : 305g

All the wires are shortened as much as possible, so I gues their weight should be no more than 20 or 30g.

With this layout, the left-right balance is ok with the battery side seem to be 5-10g heavier

Any suggestions?

Dimitris

Hi Dimitris
Nothing new since last time: Servo and alloy suspension mounts, plus 3g from transponder = app. 39gram.
Everything else seems fine

Lunsford is the best, and made right here in the USA

Our T.O.P. titanium screws aren't bad, and a good value but there are no screw kits for the cars from T.O.P. I'll see what we can do to put one together for US consumption.

Jerry has been on the naughty list -- some maybe he will get some

I'd really recommend just buying some cheap screws from mcmaster.

Yes, he is the best! When I was up there visiting my daughter, he took me on a tour of the shop.

We'll be closed during the IIC, so EX kits should be back in stock in about 2 weeks

Hi

I would like to know when/if ECS (DCJ) will be available ? More importantly (since other brands of DJCs might fit anyway), when/if TOP will make c-hubs with a large opening for the DCJs.

I know people use xray c-hubs but I don't like the idea of mixing brands much when it comes to suspension parts.

Also, when/if TOP will make rear hubs with outboard toe in in them. (0.5 or 1 degree)

Sorry if the info is already available, I read the last pages of the thread but maybe I missed some of it.

There is always lead weights.... but honestly, can you really feel 5-10 grams? I only tell on my F1 car, but just barely.

Had my first few runs with my Photon EX yesterday and I'm definitely loving this car! Everything was carried-over from my old photon car set-up-wise and this car obviously had more traction.. Had to stand-up the front shocks one hole and it was perfect.. The easy access to the pinion is a plus! Good job TOP!
