I know how Markus drives, give him a TYCO and he`ll still be faster then us.
I actually said that the car the car drives well.


I sold the car already, I have driven it a total of 20 batteries in 3 weeks, do you really think I love loosing money on selling the car second hand??
You can ask Niels Meurs or Johnny Matthieu (I thought you knew these persons), they were there when I was testing it. From the moment I touched the throttle somewhat too much (and it really wasnt punching it), the cars belt slipped over the pulley. and my belt was already too tight for comfort.

I asked Robitronics about the axles numerous times, no response, Not from Markus (who did the post there were new axles), not from anyone in Robitronics, you can check the forum if you`d like.

Luckily for me I still had my Yokomo and the Avid was sold the day I turned it in at Viol.
I saw frederico drive the car to he's fast to with the car and it just the kit car no options. Markus drove the white belts. he drove the prototype CVD's from the prototype black Avid from the beginning. They are gold collored.
And if you don't like the car don't make the avid like its shit.
thats a shame because i know some other people who drive the avid and i drove it to from those guys and the car is frealin fast and realible.
Its not always the car sometimes its how you drive a car. If You put the car sideways and go fullthrottle then the material is having a hard time. you have this with every car.
xray has problems with the bearings that break verry fast.
But nobody sayin the car is shit.
So i know you don't like the car but don't say its shit.
Its robitronics first competitive Touring Car.
So its all new for them.
The car will be better in the future.
i'm sure.

PS: Succes with the YOKOMO

Greetings Ollie

Anyway, better luck with the Yokomo!
yep, I was driving the low friction belts so that could've been my problem.
One thing I noticed that within 5-6 batteries I could already see that the teeth on the pulley weren't sharp anymore, I think they should've used an alu pulley. That would've been more wear resistant.
Well I4ve driven my BD for the last year and havent had too much troubles with it. My only problem was parts support, but since graupner started distributing Yokomo the problem has been solved :-)

Sorry for digging this thread out of the past. I was wondering if anyone is running a current version of the Avid chassis? I was reading about bad dog bones and some other issues. Have those things been resolved? I was thinking of trying out an Avid.

the bones can be replaced free of charge.

I wish I could break my FK05 in two, so that I have an excuse to buy an AVID... ;-)

The new Avid looks cool and from seeing them run at a recent nats were impressive only gripe was that guys had very noisy drivetrains also they were breaking dog bones.
One guy had a spool in his car and after a few corners hes front wheels would come off as the screw on with button head screws.
Anyone resolved this issue or have a remedy.
I like teh car but would change to conventional driveshafts

Wink Avid

the key for this car is support and parts you can have 5 avids rubber,foam,thick,thin whatever but if u don't help the people who buy them us guy's @ a club levle then why own it? I still have mine and it runs good but i put it up due to the axle's now that they have it fixed I will try it..The 1st time out the car was super 13.5 brushless ... I will run it this winter and see how it works it may come to 2007 iic with me!

hello i ame new here.
my name is marcel i come from holland.
when i read this i had to react
fist of all the avid loooks very cool.
second the avid drive train is very quiet.
mayby they run brusless they make more noise as a brusht motor.(orr need new pinion and spurr)
3e dog bones were a problem with mod driving or hard crashes (silver bones).
free of charge robitronic delivers one set of tuning bones with the car(black bones).
i run mod brusless 4,5t with a spool no problems for the weels and screws.
robitronic has a plastic ring in the weel mount to secure the screw.
mayby they didnt use it or didnt mount it corect .
dont change the drive shafts they are good.
i can realy recoment the avid i have three of them

It good to hear that Robitronic has resolved the issues. I may still have to try one out.

Dear All,

I'm aslo new on this forum and I would like to join Marcel saying that Avid is really efficient and reliable.
I practiced for one month in extreme conditions (RC Speedway Bangkok, Thailand, 35C ambiant, track around 60C with 70% of humidity) with an Onroad Checkpoint 12t motor.
Gear, differential and belt didn't show any weakness during intensive runs and no noise at all.
Avid has been wonderfull each time. Stock class TITC champion even tried my chassis and found that the diff was even better and smoother than his HB Cyclone one.

Blackmailing about Avid or anything is not objective at all and it never helped to progress in anyway. Guilty part will recognise themselves.
Robitronic is currently working on the new Avid version for next year.
Let see how minds will change once released...

Hi me again,

Please find attached files (you can also find them on the Official Robitronic Website, service and support, etc):
- Avid Gear reduction chart from the Robitronic website
- My Avid set-up sheet from RCSpeedway Bangkok, Thailand.
(One wrong type occured: the ride height is not 4mm, it's around 7 or 8mm.
The front and rear droop is actually 4mm measured under suspension arms.)

Have fun

I actually saw one of these on the weekend for the first time, car didnt look too bad, a little old in some design matters, and looked like it had a fair bit of slop but overall it was a very good looking car for the companies first effort, a revised car will surely be interesting to see.

The guys ran the Avids again this weekend and while they were flying they still had issues.
One guy who is Amain national driver put the spool in his brushless mod Avid and when he ran he was faster but teh wheels came off.They seem to loosen up on the front with the spool.
Im surprised that they already have a improved car coming out so soon maybe there is issues they are addressing.
Love teh look of teh car but at the price it sells for locally i wouldnt recommend it with the amount of slop and hassles its been having.

All things said its has potential, is awesome build and needs conventional drive shafts.
