How will the parts from the new car be offered? If a customer would like a pair (meaning two) of steering knuckles....will they be packaged this way? The same goes for the arms? The current car uses HB parts and you have to purchase two packs just to get a pair of anything. Just trying to get some answers before the kit is released.

At this point we have no idea how the replacement parts will be packaged, but nobody likes the way the HPI stuff is done. We will put in a request

I raced yesterday with my TOP scythe with all the allu parts on it.
frond the blue Xray springs and in the back little bit softer corally springs.
3th fastest lap time and qualified 7th
1st final 3the and the other 2 7th.
everything went great. the car was handling great.
i made in the second and 3th final to many misstackes.

I drove in the second final to the 4th place but some misstakes droped me down to 6th and in the final lap nr 7 past me.
In the 3th leg my car feld better than the second final and i drove to the 5th place.
again in the last part of the race i droped back to the 7th place. I came 0,1 sec to short to run an extra lap or els i was 6th. nr 6 made a mistacke and i passed him. i was finishd by than so it was to late.

Overal i feld that i hath a change to get an better resuld but because of some on misstakes it didn't happen.
The car feld gooed and i notist that i was faster than some other drivers in frond of me.
my car was more forgiving and i hath more grip.
Next race is 01-04-2009. first i will drive in viol a race. I think i can do better there than i dith last time. The car is a lot better than a month ago.

greetings Emiel

can't wait for the new car.

STLNLST - I am not sure how the parts will be packaged or what the exact price will be but I can tell you that the intent through the design, initial samples and changes we have made since the initial design has been to sacrifice nothing with keeping the price down. They are working on all the #'s but I know the goal (they think is achievable) is to match the TC5 in price. The difference though, the Photon will already come with aluminum differentials!

Josh, is there going to be a Photon "upgrade" package for the Scythe?
Or is it a whole new design?

Nova - I think the body clips from the Scythe will still work... Sorry, there isn't really much that crosses over... Bearings, universals and some minor stuff but that's about it. A lot of the Scythe was OEM from other companies where the Photon is 100% TOP Racing. I think everyone will be very happy with the Photon thought as I know I've been very happy with everything coming so far. All the drawings and minor details were finalized and as far as I know, everything is in production now or sometime this week. I think they are still shooting for a late Jan/Feb release but don't quote me on that.
