Hi Oleg - Has the specific date and place for the press release been established? ATM I'm checking the Awesomatix website, RCTech, and RedRC every so often. If known, "Check here at this date" type of post from Team Awesomatix would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Freddy,

That was a much needed update.

A few clarifications.
1. I understand the EX and L chassis are different. Which would be most suitable for asphalt low/mid traction?
2. AT22 Adjustable body post rear will also be included in the EX?

Regards,
John

Hi John,

to be honest both chassis are working very well. The EX version is wider instead of the L version. I personal feel that the narrow chassis ( L ) has a little bit less rear traction instead of the EX which is more easy and more stable in rear. I used both in the past time and it always depends on the track surface but both are quick and I could not say that chassis ... is better...

Yes, AT22 is the same rear body holder which is currently in the kits and will be in the EX kits.

Regards,
Freddy

@ tinngsmile

I tested the first samples of metall gears some weeks ago. We changed the design now again and waiting for the first new samples. They have now the same layout then the plastik ones. Smooth and no more problems with broken gears.
Will be also released in the next month.

Regards,
Freddy

A700 wins the 4 round of Swiss Electric Championship in Weinfelden in modified with Stadler Dionys and I arrived second in pro stock.

Indoor asphalt, trated with solution of water and sugar, due to the humidity in the morning absolute no grip, in the afternoon very high grip. In these condition A700 was the only car to fit easly and the best car viewed on the track.

Freddy,

Thank you for the updates. I'm curious to know if the updated gear box is lowered (AM01-1). If so, will the new short steering blocks (AM06S) be included? Also, I assume the new dampers will require the new shock holder. If so, will the new shock holder (AM08-1) mount up to the original standard (C01) lower deck? Lastly, I was hoping for an updated/improved Ball Joint Set. I don't see anything on the website. Can we assume that these pieces haven't been updated?

Thanks in advance.

Hi John,

I am not 100% sure about the new gear boxes. But I don't think that the shorter AM06s are included.

The new shock holder will be mounted like the old one, just with 4mm shims height.

Oleg is working on the new ball joints and also on a lot more new and nice parts. But all needs time, so for the moment he stay with the std. ball joints.
You can be sure that in the future will come a lot nice things :-)

Regards,
Freddy

Freddy I found this also with the original and C01L.

Without the cut outs for transverse motor, battery tape slots and under gearbox the C01L is stiffer, so less traction

Also with the mass centralised the car turns even quicker, so more stress for the rear end..

New AM01-1 is not lowered.
AM06S are not included in the kits.
We are preparing the recommendations of using AM06S now.
There is a chance that the improved P01/P02 will be included in L and EX kits and available as spare parts also as soonest.

New SPR01S soft springs have the rate 0.67 regarding to the standard SPR01 springs and are suitable for old and new dampers.

Hi All,

If anyone out there has an original chassis plate, used and scratched up that they have no further use for, that they would mind getting rid of cheap, I'd very much like to hear from you!
