Yes, there is a foam specific chassis as well, Josh has been doing very well with the car in foam, he took the #1 spot in the NE grand slam series and I think won all 4 rounds in 10.5. The car looked very composed at the round at 360, which tends to get very high grip since we still run paragon.

All I have to say is the car looked really fast a month ago in Josh's hands. He only had the car for like a year and to be up to speed so soon its got to be good. I also like the way the balance tray is set. The further you put weight from the center line the better. It doesn't take as much weight to balance then. Also the CG is so low. The pictures doesn't do it any justice. You have to see it. It looks good!!

My choices are between the new RDX and this at the moment. Luckily for me I have Corally and Top drivers at my home track so support should be easy to get.

I know these questions will be asked 100 times but...

When will it be available in the US?

What will be the approx. street price?
My case is between 2 coming soon chassis, this or YOKOMO BD5.
If the price of these 2 are similar, then BD5 is the choice, just because YOKOMO is always the brand to be entrusted with its long career and high quality of materials.
The only advantage of Photon is LIPO friendly.
If you choosing the chassis just depended the popularity, i could tell you i am totally inversed than you.
Just because in our race Champs., the major chassis are TRF415/416, HB Cyclone and Xray 08/09, so i just want to be the different 1.

i heard they were toggling between photos or acronyms. once all the acronyms were replaced, the file size became too large.

If they had photos, they would be backwards like they are on the topracingusa website.

After reading all that I'm extremely confident this chassis won't be any good!

I only saw one thing that was optimized
