The supplied parts with the kit differ between the rubber and the foam tyre chassis. Our foam spec car comes with front differential, front alloy universals, different chassis braces, harder front springs and a 1.4 mm front sway bar, while the rubber spec edition comes with front spool and steel universals, smaller carbon chassis braces, softer front springs and 1.2 mm sway bars all round. Also the carbon fibre material differs, as the foam carpet spec makes use of less flexible bidirectional carbon fibre plates while the rubber tyre version comes with a more flexible unidirectional chassis plate. Both specs share a very trick LiPo battery mounting system consisting of adjustable plastic rails to accommodate different sized hardcase packs in combination with a very clever system to add additional weights for a proper side-by-side balance of the chassis.
The build starts with the front and rear ball differentials. The manual supplied with the kit consists of CAD drawings, parts lists and comments for both versions so please make sure you pick the correct steps for your type of chassis. Also supplied is an amendment and build tips sheet so building the Photon needs a bit of concentration to not mix-up things especially in the later stages of the suspension build.
