I am perfectly calm.

If you like what you like, and are so anal and critical about every car on the market, you will probably be better off creating your own.

These are great cars I did the final running tests and was very fast running with in .2 of my phi times. That was with very little setup changes. I feel this car will be very fast with the right setup drivetrain is very smooth

Saw this car at the local hobby shop, and asked about it. The one they had on display, had TRF layed down shocks. Nice, if you like running those IFS bodies. I also like how they went and put other company parts into their designe. Especially Associated, nice and cheap. But how dose it stack up against the leading touring cars? Has anyone raced it competitively? And if so, how did it handle? What are your likes/dislikes about the car?

Thank you! (poser) lol

I already know that you purchased a Photon by the arguments that involved you within the thread.

Because clearly somebody can't be intrigued by a design without committing to purchase. I have seen some results of yours and you are definitely not as fast as you seem to believe.

You are tempting me to get one just on the off chance that I beat you with it :P

Really interesting design and ideas, will be looking for test results on tarmac, videos etc as i'm sure lots of people are.

Do you have any pics with the car fully loaded up? Also a running weight would be interesting.

Does the LiPo sit in a pocket or tray? i see what looks like a forward stopper, but i can't see one for the rear...it looks from the pics like the layshaft might take a beating!

Glad you guys are taking a new approach on TC, look forward to reading more about it!

Good luck!!

Any race stats yet? I'd like to see even club level results. It sure is unique.
