Yes i know that the photon has flex to die for, but my brother has the foam version and it aso comes with 4 degree castor blocks and it pushes like crazy. i`m just asking if it has the 6 degrees, because i think that will solve the push problem.

I would suggest that 6 degree blocks are not needed to get rid of the push there is plenty of things you can do you can put some kick up which will add to the 4* you run but maybe a rear sway bar try some droop adjustments maybe make the rear of the car slightly highr then the front just some sugestions

Yes we have tried all of the above mentioned, still it pushes. And don`t worry, my brother is a hell of a driver he got skills to kill for.It`s just that( and i really don`t want to say this) it pushes.

yeah i dont doubt anyones skills i just never seen a situation where 6* blocks fixed a problem no other setup changes could fix . if you tryed the kickup then that right there tells you that 6* blocks wont help anyway. 4* with kickup is no longer 4* its 5 or 6*

Please post this "mad skills" setup and I'll see what I can do to help you. I just put 800 laps on my foam car in the last 2 days on a track with 5 foot lanes.

Anyone know when T.O.P. USA is getting the Foam version in? I'm taking a chance and told my local hobby shop I wanted a Photon instead of the New Corally PHI '09. I was going to wait and see how it faired in the hands of other club racers, but I couldn't wait. Although the above post about the car pushing scares me a little.
