Thanks again Oleg for your reply of "Upper links" .

Now I must countinue with my stupid questions...-What do you guys do to make the car go straight?

-The ST21 part is jus a threaded rod , so only way to make this go straight is to use trim. I dont like that , always used to make everything go mechanically straight w/o any radio trims.

Ok, another way is to play with AT14 lenghts, but this would make left and right ones different lenght and that is not great eighter.


So is there a turnbuckle available for ST14 or something?

Set endpoints equal and trim to zero. Servo horn almost perfectly vertical, very very slightly to the inside. Jiggle between subtrim, link length and end points to fit steering rack lock stops so that end points are the same value at full lock.

Adjust subtrim and endpoints again on the track, can take a little while but I have trim at zero, a 4% subtrim and endpoints within 3% of each other.

Not the only way to do it but seems to work well

Default Front Body Posts too short on A700L?

All the body posts in my kit are all the same size. Is this correct, because when using a protoform Mazda speed 6, the front body posts are way too short...

I compared with my 417 and sure enough....

Anyone else experience this??

Thanks guys!!

2nd hole from top at front and 4th in the rear is where I mount Mazdaspeed6 LW body.

All the posts are same lenght and I cant see any problems .

If you are in the uk then maybe since they cut the shell off the lower lines.

If you want them longer just use washers under the posts and raise them that way.

If you go to the RedRC ETS race series coverage from the last year you'll see Freddy Sudhoff running his A700 and more recently I assume the EX in the finals against the worlds best of Marc Rheinhardt and Yokomo BD7 of Volker among many others. Red RC has links to the video of many of the races both mod and pro stock.

Thanks!

Please see the pictures.
New U-rings reduce harmful friction.

Hi,

Im looking for these spare-parts: AM19

Everywhere I search for them, they are out of stock. I need 4 pieces (2 in the front und 2 in the rear).

I dont want to use AM18(-1).

Who sells them? Or where are they still in stock?

Ronald

These carbon upper arms holders are good for old AM01.
For use with AM01-1 you should to trim the inner angles of C06 a bit.
