Very nice!
Is this the actual 'L' kit or you have installed 'L' chassis, new dampers and damper holders, battery holders and few other parts on your older kit?
I'm asking cause I thought that all parts on new kits were dark gun metal color (like your motor mount).

Also, bit off topic, but is that AE 'BD' ADV1004 and are you happy with it? A few pics from electronics' side would be much appreciated.

Well I have a bd speedo and I will tell you I haven't had one issue with it in over a year and a half ....,in my opinion it's the best speedo on the market.....apparently hobby wing ver 3 is comparable but I haven't tried it .....but besides that my tekins and vipers can't compare to the black diamond.

Yes its the A700L. Here is the original A700 too, with prototype C01L. Naturally, we're all waiting for your build and photo session John

On the Black Diamond. I've had most of the top speedos and have had a good feeling with them. But in the end, the BD always ends up back in the car. Very strong acceleration in the higher profiles but with exceptional feeling at the stick, whether accelerating or decelerating. Its the finesse which sets this speedo apart from the rest.

Recent firmware updates give a superb feeling in the brakes, and allow the advanced user to access some serious power if one understands how best to use the settings.

Thanks for the info shared Hana.
Your car looks nice. Speedo is low profile.

My next built report might take sometime as a new kit is not in my plans for the near future unfortunately.
Thanks for the support anyway.

John

Yeah, I'll receive this beast next week

Do I have to glue all carbon parts (even suspension arms)?

Any advices for the build?

Thanks,

alors tu as craqué pour L'A700L? ;-)

pour le cyanolitage, Hugo recommande de rien cyanoliter ( risque de tweakage)

bonne chance pour les roulages, après le roulage de ce WE en indoor avec mon club, les TT, pan car 1/12 et 1/10 + mini Z qui roulent avec les tourings, je me suis dis: " j'aurais pris l' A700, elle aurait été pulvérisée".

Hugo a aucun soucis avec mais il n'a pas le même niveau que nous...

Yes, j'ai craqué, je n'en pouvais plus
On verra à l'usage, mais comme je ne roule pas des masses et que je préfère de loin régler la voiture, je suis à peu près sur de ne pas m'être (trop) trompé...

Merci pour les conseils,
Bye

Just to get some other advice than the one of Nico':

do you all glue all the carbon parts on the A700?

Thanks for answering,
G-rem
