Please explain.
Diagram of the upper deck in the setup sheet is simplified.
It only reports is the end of the upper deck fully fixed or floating.
The presence of additional holes in the scheme would not add any useful additional information.

Hi Oleg,

I've a question about latest steen's setup:
What does he mean when he says in the comments: "gear box in 2 pic front and rear for more flex"

Thanks

Sorry, but I am still busy with the basics. But not for long anymore.

This one is good also?

Default Awesomatix A700

If I would order now or within a week from now, how long would it take then before receiving the car? Shipped to the Netherlands.
Very important to know.
I am a bit worried as to how fast you can ship and as to continuity. Especially as I see that the kit is out of stock.
Please let me know and please be frank here.
Worst case I have to move to another brand.
But I'd do that within a blink of an eye.

Oleg,

On your website it says the car is € 589.
How much are the shippingcosts to The Netherlands?

You can also try on awesomatix.ch but until the end of the week no A700 available.

Hi All,

Just attaching the copy of the latest running from this weekend. Having had a few weeks off since TITC, time to get back into driving again, so I headed to the local indoor asphalt track.

I started out with an adaptation of my TITC settings, but with much softer roll bars all round. Car worked well, but seemed to be missing something, and was crashing over the bumps a bit. No real vices, but didn't feel fast... so took it back to the pits and decided to stick on Steen's settings (or as close as I could get) from the last ETS..
Well, that made a massive difference. Car was much better over the bumps, but with such softer dampers it was really stopping in the middle of the corner.

Next few runs had a play around with the dampers and springs, trying harder damper and spring, as well as Asym and Sym. Overall, the spring rate seems to be good, but the damping needed to go up, and I tried going as far as I could without altering the spring (so 3mm out on A from Steen's). This was too far, so backed it down to 2mm out, and that felt pretty good. However, the car still had a tendancy to over-rotate mid-corner if I got aggressive on entry, so wasn't so consistent.
On the Asym and Sym comparison, the asym felt really not nice to drive, really initially reactive, but then completely numb... it was so bad I pulled the car off the track after 2mins to put the sym back on!

I switched out tyres from 28's to 32's at the end of the day to try and have representative few runs on tyres similar to what I'll use next weekend... surprisingly the car felt pretty good, although could do with softer damping now, and the over rotate tendancy was still there. Also, given the low temps (~8C!) the tyres took quite a while to heat up, but once they were there, and I got my head round driving it, popped in a series of laps with a fastest of 11.9, and a average of 12.1... so again, pretty consistent runs, which I'm happy with. Car was much more compliant over the bumps and ripples, actually felt like for the first time that it was riding rather than smacking them. Big improvement for sure.

Anyway, by that time it had got quite late, so left on my list for next weekend are to try a slightly softer rear spring, more rear camber, and overall lower damping/spring, to try and get the heat generated quicker. We'll see how it goes then... hopefully can get a decent run in, and even if the traction is super high I know that they'll be no hint of traction roll for me

Regards
Ed

Thanks,

you need 2 common tools that aren't so common in rc cars:

10 mm wrench for gear differential tightening
12 mm wrench for spur gear nut tightening

Hi,
Could you please point me in the right direction as to what tools I should buy.
Sorry, but I have no clue.......

What joint grease to use? See page 6. Please give brand and partnumber.

I use Hudy black grease (AE is extremely similar) on universals, and a dry wax lube on gears (ring and pinion for example).


On what other parts do I have to use the dry wax lube?
Only on the pinion or all other cogwheels too?
What "ring" do you mean?
