I need a good chassis set up for VTA on a medium size smooth surface asphalt Track. I'm running the HPI rubber tires. Can anybody help me.

Default T.O.P. Photon not EX

Every weekend I race and make a few little adjustments my car is getting better and better. Since last time I ask questions. I have gone to both cars to having softer springs both in front and in rear. I have also gone to having the Yokomo diffs in the rear, and the TOP in the front. After running it like this twice know I find no leak from any car. I have even gone and walk all over some X-rays on track. You can't change my mind. I believe that this cars are the best. Having the knowledge that I was able to get from some of the TOP racers on this forum.

Thank you guys.

My next phase is getting together a Fantom 17.5 Turn APEXv2 Works Edition Brushless Racing Motor. I have it already, just not sure if I want to try out and Orion R-10 with it or do a little test with a Trinity Trackstar Gen2 120A. It looks so much like an Orion R-10.

Hi guys.

Does anyone know what other front belt I can use on the EX? Tamiya? ARC? yokomo? My LHS has run out of belts and I'm desperate.

Help!

I have had my ex parked for a couple of seasons now, Thinking about a new chassis or resurrecting the ex to run in usgt...aside from the floating servo mount everything else is stock...what upgrades have i missed out on that are worth the expense in the last couple of years ?

Not sure if you have these but the u-pro suspension mount system and u-pro hybrid spool are good upgrade options for the EX.

Any word on the current status of T.O.P. USA? The US web page redirects you to an overseas page. OD does not answer my emails anymore and AMain is dumping all T.O.P. products?

Not sure how we missed you unless you emailed while I was out sick or away for a race. Try again at topracingusa@yahoo.com

Due to virus problems with our website we have temporarily installed the title page you see when visiting our address www.topracingusa.com It shows the email address and phone number for TOP USA; the link shown is for the main company's website where pics of all the products can be viewed

Where can I buy parts in the US for Photon Ex other than A main or TQ? Is the Saber S4 still available? I don't see it for sale anywhere anymore.

Photon EX parts are in stock at TOP Racing USA. The Sabre S4 is still available but the factory is out of kits at the moment, we have a couple left in stock as well as parts
