I've tried both, i actually found if i polish the rough side with some 1200 wet and dry the diff seems smoother and tends to last longer than the originally polished side, but it still doesnt help slip.

I have seen pics or cad drawings of the Photon and must say it really looks WOW !!!

Very impressed with the layout and improvements made.
Think TOP can confidently say the Photon is the first or one of the first cars to be designed for lipo too. Really nice layout ad the ballast weights is a neat idea.

Watch out for the pics and article coming to Xtreme RC Car Magazine.

Will the photo's also come online or only in the magazine?
Because here we have no Xtreem rc car.

I want the car.
If the car is better than the ARP than it's by far the best car there is.
I have the TOP Scythe with the ARP bottom plate and it drives great.
Best car i drove.
I hat a T2'007, a FK04 and a hotbodies moore edition.
Also i drove a few times a mi3 a TRF, and a TRF415. From all of those cars i find the TOP the best driving car.
I now that the T2008, T2'009 and the TRF416 better are than the other cars but i didn't drive them jet. So i don't now if they are better.
The TOP looks strange but the new one looks more professional so i think that it will be a popular car.

Cant wait till i have one

Hi. Im new on here. And need some advice. I currently run a 2007 scythe which i love, but the front driveshafts are getting very worn, what i was wondering is wether there are and driveshafts off another car that will fit my scythe as it can be quite hard for me to get parts. Thanks

the scythe uses yokomo diffs and pro 4 suspension parts, try both the yokomo driveshafts or cyclone CVD's.

Does that mean i can use yokomo mr4/bd diffs/spools and one ways?

Found the driveshafts there ZS-010RSB which is yokomo bd but i think these are the version one rather than the stronger version 2
