@frank b: no issue putting it back at all.
@mdawson: I got it done at pkselective, they're in santa clara, ca. they did 4 of my other rc cars in red and gun metal, it takes about 3 days.
@korgae: I had my xray done in red and gun metal and it looks cool like photon, blue would look like my yokomo ...so I had to try different color.

What if you powdercoated the aluminum white? Then it'd look like a storm trooper.

Powder coat is probably too thick, though. :/

Yep it will add thickness to it, they can do white anodizing

We just run our first Nats race for 2012 this past weekend.
I am happy to say I won, although only just.. and a bit lucky.

Here is my report

Going to get myself one of these but they seem to be out of stock. Hope they will be back in stock soon. Can not wait to be the first in Sweden to own one.
Just love the craftsmanship in this beautiful car.

Default Awesomatix A700

Does it come with different kinds of anti rollbars in the kit? (different as to thickness).
What do I need to buys extra when wanting to race without problems an outdoorseason?
Do I need extra parts for spring and shock adjustment? Like spirngs and oils?
Do I need extra special tools? If so which ones?
What motorposition best to use under what circumstances?
What joint grease to use? See page 6. Please give brand and partnumber.
What brand of pinions best to use?
Are parts P05 in the kit for different use of sway bars?
What brand of spurs best to use?
What servo best to use in the car?
When racing about 10.5t or 13.5t and longitudinal motor postion and wanting the weight no more than 1350 grams what servo position best to use? Right side on the battery side, or left side on the motor side?
Where best to place the servo, as to weight distribution left/right? In all other TC's weight has to be added on the right side, so the LiPo side. Therefore it is better to put the servo in the right? Or is all of the weight distribution different with this car?
Does it come with a spool in the front?
Does it come with a geardiff in the rear?
Is a front geardiff as an extra in the kit?
Is the DG1 damper gauge included in the kit?
Can I find a setup with this car out of the box on very different tracks? I mean short technical with very short corners or long high speed with wide sweepers. Or do I have to buy all kinds of things to get it work?
What body best to use?
In the manual it says:”Our Dampers are factory assembled and fluid
filled already. Don’t disassemble Damper’s
casing to avoid a loss of damping rate.”
So it is never needed to put oil of another thickness in the dampers? Or change the oil on a regular bases?
Are the different kinds of shock springs available (SPR01), or not? Or are other shock springs not needed?
Page 35:
Roll Center adjustment:
Use combinations of SH0.5, SH1.0 and SH1.75 Spacers
under appropriate Pivot Balls and Ball Studs for this adjustment.
Are these spacers in the kit?
How do you set the droop on this car?
How can I and where do I buy this car?
How to pay?
What does this car weigh raceready, approximately? Must not be more than 1.350 grams! Preferably less!
If servo is placed on the right side, then balancing with the LiPo isn't possible anymore, or not needed anymore?
In conventional touringcars extra weight must be added on the right side, that is the side where the LiPo is, to get the car balanced. I would like to get the car balanced spot on and not be heavier than 1.350gr. In the manual it says longitudinal positioning of the motor when using 8.5T to 17.5T. That is what I will be using. Then were best to place the servo when the aim is spot on balance and 1.350 grams maximum?
Almost all cars I have seen have the servo on the left. So that seems the way to go?
Are those horizontal extensions on the rear bodyposts in the kit?
If not what partnumber and what do they cost?
Do I have to grind the edges of the chassisplate and other parts and then treat them with CA to avoid chipping or splitting?
In the manual it says on page 9:Apply thin CA glue on all C01 Lower Deck edges to protect and seal them.
I've looked at some setups. As to frame flex setting: when there are red crosses in the middle of the topdeck on the setupsheet does that mean that there is cut, or the opposite not cut?
On some topdecks on some setupsheets I see were there are bolts, NO red cross at the front three holes and the rear three holes. I don't understand. There has to be one bolt at the least?! So I expected minimum one red cross.
How best to cut the top deck?
I looked at many setups. Is it safe to say that almost everybody cuts the top deck at all 11 places? Especially on asphalt?
Do I have to use loc tite to tighten the screws when I build the car?
Can you do the geardiff modification for me as seen on your website? Of course I pay you for that!
