The PHOTON put on a clinic in Nashville this weekend at the Cashville 500 Lap Trans-Am Race.

The Friday night warm up = TQ + WIN

Quals for main event = Single fastest run + Qualified 2nd as a team

Final Result = 1ST Place


Team T.O.P. was made of three PHOTONS, and after 500 laps not one part surrendered to the beatings.

And that says a lot because i was the pilot of one of these photons. This was the first time that I have driven the Photon (my buddies 7 year old sons car) for more than 2-3 laps. I fell in love with this car. It was perfect. I will for sure be getting this car very soon!
Go Team TOP

I'm running the Mazda 6 with no problems. I shimmed the front arms with FF1.5 FR 2.5 and the rear RF 2.5 RR 1.5.

Hi all,

I have a newbie question on the front wheelbase spacer.

Right now my front wheelbase spacer is FF = 1.5 and FR = 2. I've seen on a setup sheet the FF = 1 and FR = 2. For 1.5 front and 2 rear, the front arm fits snug. If using 1 front and 2 rear, would it make the front arm loose?

Greatly appreciate some explanation.

Might be a bit of an exaggeration, but a good run none the less.
