Just a quiet night, no one really to race against, so played with a setting or two, start mode on the ESC is interesting, directly relates to speed more than I’d have guessed, but no match for gearing up, and I am out of gearing, 32 pinion is like ok to maybe 59mm tyre, so […]

Fun night, Snap playing with motors, me just generally messing around with gearing and some settings, both of us going rather quick. My Photon really has some nice qualities about it, right now it’s gripping so well on 35’s, though the Speedmind 35 rears ‘feel’ and even wear more like a 37, which is odd, […]

Another casual race night at EPR, fun had all around, killing me with the gearing, pushing me so hard, trying not to choke when being stalked on track, Luke also out with a 4.5T making life hard, but all still good fun. Off the start I tried front foams on all 4 corners, but the […]

One of those strange nights where your head and body ain’t in it I think, back spasms had me in quite a lot of pain half the night, so I was almost glad to let a friend (Luke) take some of the runs with my Photon. Snap was still geared to the moon and back, […]

A few people came to play, bloody Snap decided to gear way up though, talk about hard to keep pace with, he beat my best lap time, and I spent the whole night fighting to keep ahead of him, in the final I geared up one and managed to equal his best time, only for […]

Another very quiet Friday night… Forth race night on the 37/40 shore Capricorn foams, they will easily do a fifth, this set had not touched a truer (as I still don’t have one), and apart from a little uneven wear, they still drive just fine. I previously lowered the rear arms to gain more rear […]

Really quiet night, but I was keen to try some new HobbyKing packs, very cheap (for the specs) 5300/50C hardcase packs. So lazy I don’t think I changed a thing on the Photon, so it was still loose in the back end, still no alignment, just ran it loose and felt out the new packs, […]

Did some revisions to the Photon, mainly new smaller HW ESC, which allowed me to move all my electronics inwards, and improved the balance of the car, which was nice, also chasing rear traction I lowered the roll center, and in the end removed the rear sway bar. Results were mixed, car was better, but […]

Quiet but overall side splitting night of racing at a few points, Jeff came to play and generally playing was had all around, with some often very funny moments… Lots of repairs on the Photon, though some of the setting tweaks I did, made the car harder to drive, it was pulling out of corners […]

Nice turn out at the club tonight, 11 people showed up to play in SSF, unfortunately my Photon was not in great shape for various reasons, rear gear diff still broken so had to use ball diff, that I still have no idea how to get the best from, but in the end none of […]
