Default Photon in UK

All the UK model/hobby shops have had their pre-orders shipped.

Anyone else wanting the kit before the 2nd batch mid July needs to get an order in quickly as the stock is flying out just now! All spare part pre-orders to UK shops have shipped too. UK Spares lists are here but no images just yet.

T.O.P. have done an excellent job getting the cars to all the worldwide distributors within a few days of each other - it must have been a logistical nightmare so hang tight if kits have not arrived in your country yet and support your local market!

The UK Photon team is shaping up well and we're hoping to have a few cars running at the Halifax national this weekend along with a couple of Scythe's too.

My TOP Scythe.
Don't watch the first part of the film. wasn't used to the one way.
Drove the last 4 races with a spool.

was faster with my Tekin RS Pro and 10,5T X11 than the car in front of me. He was using same speedo and motor but a Xray T2'007 and 6 cell.

Infield 5 cell goos faster. Top speed the 6 cell is faster.

Will make a new movie with my Tekin Motor and i hope with a Photon.

I was just informed that my Photon wont be In the States till August.
This is going to be an agonizing 6 weeks. Kind of like knowing what you are going to get for Christmas and its only Thanksgiving.

Default Photon 'features' presentation

For those of you that were unable to see the Photon powerpoint presentation, it's been converted to a neat video here

Thanks to Rob at BBK Software!
- click the link above, turn on the livestream channel, then click the on demand button and select Muchmore UK GP 09 to view webcasts, interviews and finals from the event. If you want to see the Photon in action, choose Modified A Final Leg 3 (Niel's Photon is the yellow car 3rd on the grid)

Hey man! thats the coolest presentation for a car I've ever seen! Josh left nothing on the table when he penned this one. Seems like he pulled a few trick from out of his sleeve too. I hope getting a complete diff and the brass weights isn't going to be a problem. I really have no interest in foam but you never know when you might want a differential up front. Is it August yet?
