Exclamation

Looking forward to more feedback and good results from the Reedy Race. Plans have already begun for running an EVO soon so I look forward to buidling and driving this car.

All good now, was just the top profile of the servo, spaced it back a little more and now its all good. Wasn't really keen on the double sided tape option.

Just an option.
I mounted my servo about 5mm back of the mounting holes to provide more ackerman options. No need to drill holes, just use 3M double sided tape, will hold like a champ.

Oh also, Josh, awesome looking machine. Can't wait to hit the track.

Ran my EVO last weekend and the weekend before at Norcal Hobbies. "Point and Shoot" describes the car exactly. Didn't spin out or lose control. Turns as quick as a pan car. So quick, I was always slapping the corners too early cause the car turned too quickly. Lots of twist in the chassis which gave the car a ton of steering. Josh, I have a decent asphalt set-up but I'm sure you'll have something better for the Reedy.

The stock Photon is a great car which I feel I can drive more aggressively. However, the EVO is much more stable and turns fast. I'm sure everyone's opinions will differ. If only I was a better driver, I could have had better results last weekend.

I thought the Evo was a little stiffer than Photon,which stable the car more...

This sounds really hopeful, hope it does well at Reedy!

Goingfast - It's stiffer than the origional Photon rubber cars but I'm sure not as stiff as the ones where guys ran the foam 3mm chassis or the new 2.25mm quasi Lipo chassis.

Thanks for all the comments everyone.... Super busy trying to make sure everything is sorted here for Angel while I am at the race but once the madness slows down later tonight I'll try to post a little Pre-Reedy info!!

Thanks again!!

It probably is a little stiffer. I was trying to get my car to twist a little more for asphalt. The car felt stable regardless.

You want more twist for asphlat...Why not run softer spring with no sway bars..
Do you mean more rear end rotating around the corner?

Sorry...not twist. I meant more flex.

Yep comes as a kit with everything to transfer the photon. The new shock towers, and camber plates do not come with the kit.

Why are the different camber plates needed, just to match the CF weave of the other parts (instead of using the Photon Ones)????

I think the camber plate it is a little thicker than the stock one...plus the Evo plate really look nice and does match the chassis.....
I got them all...lol

I've had the chance to see the Evo conversion that a pal of mine bought along with his photon kit. He's built the car and the result is nice but the manufacturing is far from being as good as expected as far as the CEFX parts are concerned. For instance ther was a BIG "blurr" under the steel motor mount. The guy works as a watchmaker so for him that's no biggie but still , that was a bit disapointing. I am in the process of writing a short review of the build with the pics he took while building, so check www.overrc.com regularly ! it should be ready at the end of the week. The whole site is in French but it's quite easy to translate.
