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!
That would be killer to have the pricing of the TC5 parts.

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.
Thats what I thought it was but ya never know... Will you be running it at the birds this year so I can et a look-see?

Nova & Rob - Yes, I will be running the car from here on out at all the races. Including the race at Fastcats this weekend.

Andy - "You shut your mouth when you're talkin to me!!" - quote from Chicky to Eli Ezro!!

Nova - I would stick with the Mazda 6 there as the traction can get pretty high. The new PF body looks cool and just on that I'd run it but the standard Mazda I know would be nice and smooth with a good balance. 1/12 it's preference as I like the Parma Speed 8 or the new Black Art body that I ran in Cleveland.

artwork - Sorry... I tried... It's still on hold for the moment... I was told to work on the press release so it's ready when they decide it's time!!

How much rebound does you guys usually run for the TOP Scythe ?

So far i've only run zero rebound(which if im not mistaken means the shock shaft is fully extend out right?) and found that the car can have an aggressive/loose back end...

Would running some rebound(pushing the shock shaft slightly inside before putting the cap on) helps to reduce the loose back end?
