I read back a page or two and realize that you like ball diffs. You should give gear diffs another shot if you haven't already and adjust accordingly. You're running asphalt with low traction you can go lighter oil. I also don't use top springs, I use the Rides haras and pro match on carpet and asphalt. I own a ex and standard photons that I run locally once in awhile for tc and usgt class.
Just to make sure, I have the Photon not the EX. If you have a part number and place to get it I will try it. I purchased the EX and it will not work. Not that I can figure it out.

I'm not sure ware to get the 2.0 deg with 4 deg caster block. can you explain ware I get the 2.0 deg. Thank you. This Friday I have racing again. I hope I can get the car to have a little more grip.
Another question when you pull on the trigger and the car pulls, isn't that usually something hanging up on the side it go's to?
Thanks guys

Yogii,

You can get the Yokomo diff at AMain:
http://www.amain.com/product_info.ph...al-Unithttp://

And the shims:
http://www.amain.com/product_info.ph...el-Shim-Kit-30

You also might want to order these shims:
http://www.amain.com/product_info.ph...et-005-01-02mm
These are for the center gear.

It's been a while since I raced the Photon but I used these shims to center the belts with the Yokomo.

Also since you live in Las Vegas try to keep Oct 13-18 open. The IIC race will held at the Riveria and OD and EJ Evans usually attend the race.

I have a spec r yokomo gear diff in my standard photon and a yokom bd-500gs gear diff on my ex. Yokomo gear diff can be purchased from amain in the states or if you opt for the spec r version tqrcracing reflexracingdynamics, banzai, rc market, rcmart. You will need to buy shim, they come in a package of various sizes. When I get home from work I can check for you.

I'm going to assume the car is pulling left or right? Is is consistent to one side?
Make sure nothing is binding by checking your suspension, belts, and pinions. Not sure if you own a setup station and board. It's the best investment for onroad. You could have a bunch of things going on there that's causing this.

Yes i own the huddy set board along with the tweik set-up. I know my street is kind a slopes to both sides. But I can't tell if it because street or something hanging on 1 side. Sometimes it pules in opposite direction. I can't tell enough from driving on street. I hate not having a track to test car during the week prior to race.

Look at 1411, No it will not line up. I'm not sure were some of this guys get there information. Other then to make people waste there money. THE PHOTON EX DIFF WILL NOT WOK ON THE STANDARD PHOTON! i just purchased one, that I do not know what to do with. I can sell it to you Ship $25.00. If you don't believe me. If you want to try the yoKomo bd7, let me know if it works. On the Standard Photon. Thank you
