Wow wow wow is all I can say about this weekend, yes I had tough luck during my qualifying runs and sorted this out for the mains, but that's for another day,

this weekend was just perfect for us and we really did work out as a TEAM. I think we made the most noise and had the most fun, but most of all got all the cars working real good.
Well done to everyone for there contributions to make our cars even better.....

Jimmy

The EX is the expert kit like before with a few small changes. It can be ran in both motor configurations. The L is the newer kit that sells for less. It can only be ran in the direct drive inline motor configuration and is a bit more narrow than the previous version.

Both are working well. The L chassis is the narrow one, with the new flex option but you can only run std. Motor layout north/ south. It has little bit more steering and change of load is perfekt.

The EX chassis is little bit wider, has also the new flex options but you can use the transverse motor kit. The chassis has a lot traction and is very easy to drive.

So, L has less rear traction, but good and very fast reaction and EX chassis is maximum easy to drive and very smooth.

All the stock guys at ETS used the L chassis with soft flex settings.

Nope, std servo posts are compatible.

Hi ,
I got my A700L on Monday before the ETS.
Have 3 days built and use Freddy's Std. Ride tire Setup.

On friday the first trainingsheat was the first time i used my Awesomatix ! NO Training before !!!!!

The Car was so easy to drive and so incredible fast .....
I changed only two things on the setup after my first run:
- Stabis expanded
- Switched from Soft to Hard spring

No other changes after this!!!

I started from position 9 in the Finials and made the 5 Place overall!
The Car was so easy to drive and so incredible fast ....

Best car i ever had !!

Big thanks to Freddy and Shepherd Micro Racing !!!!
Best Regards Max Mächler

This ETS definitely showed the strength of teamwork! If Mod qualification would have gone a bit smoother for some of the other guys, the Mod A would have looked like the Pro Stock A! I ran one of the first production cars, only change from the standard kit was that I used the new softer springs. My car was dialed in my mains; only wish my driving was better during qualification. Special thanks to Jimmy for all the set-up information, great to see you racing again! Max keep up the good work, I will try to make it to the track over the next few weeks.

its a shame that there are not many UK drivers. I had one that I only kept for a few months. The simple reason was I had no one to share any knowledge or setup information on how to make the car quicker/easier to drive when conditions changed (ie bumpy).

It is such a radical design that you cant really use the standard knowledge gained from other cars to put in to use for the a700.

The car is really quick, to be honest, on certain tracks I believe that it will be almost unbeatable.

As a racing car I don't think it has an equal.

I agree with you there!.....it is the fastest car....especially while cornering....i think thats why every other manufacturer is scrambling to lower there CG.....if only we could get the new parts ....the fact that i cant get the new parts is the reason why i keep juggling back and forth from selling to wanting to keep it ..back to selling lol......this is an evil game your playing Oleg lol

Hello Oleg. Has the new car proven to be substantially much better than its 'parent' A700, or is the improvements marginal?

Hy,
I raced both, I got one of the first kits last Year and was using it a hole year.
Now I switched on the same car just the new upgrade parts.

the difference is not sooo big, but the new servo is a nice feature, attached at one point and the servo ill no longer touch the chassis, so more balance in Flex and also it will not tweak so fast.

the new Damper is the major difference that now when you have a problem with one you don't need to remove the hole part, you just open the case and remove the dampercartrige, this make is less expensive in change.

the new chassis is great, very balanced and will tweak not so fast like the old one.

But all in all, even with the first kits that hitted the marked you will be as fast as with the newer one. The car is awesome..new or old.
the best choice in touring cars with a really nice Team around...

regards Tom
