The arms and steering blocks are very strong, you will likely never break these. You may break the turnbuckles if you hit hard and directly on the wheel. You can change them for titanium ones (id recommend lunsford) if you want. You can also fit an Xray T4 hard front bumper to help. I would also get some spare ball ends/scissor joints, and driveshaft parts (these dont break, but they may come apart if you pop a ball end or break a turnbuckle, in case you lose a part).

I sent Oleg my setup from the ROAR Region 2 race this morning, so it should be up soon. The track was tight but flowing high grip carpet, with many carousel type corners and a chicane. We used the Solaris Medium tires, which are the same as the upcoming nats. I will post the video of the race as soon as they are uploaded

Video from the main. I am the white nose/blue/pink starting from pole in the sweeper.

+ YouTube Video

I think I could be the test-crash driver
I run with the car since December in 10.5 blinky and I've never broken anything, and I'm not so good (you know, the guy who's everytime in the last final,... ).

The car is definitely durable, I just folded a turnbuckle at my last race and popped off but never broke anything! Love this car so much, much more easy to drive on carpet track than my previous Yokomo BD5...and also much more durable

Regards,
G-rem

Hello everyone - I hope Oleg doesn't mind me posting, but tonight we'll be putting in our first stocking order for the brand new Awesomatix USA (web site and store coming soon). Oleg has been very helpful to everyone globally who is running the car -- and we only hope Awesomatix USA can help extend that same high level of service and support. If anyone in the USA or Canada is looking for some kits or parts in the next 10 days we should be up and running by then.

Had I know who it was, I wouldn't have asked that question. It'll be nice to have it on the same side of the country and someone I started racing with. Hopefully competitive pricing without the extra shipping too

Thanks for the support Dawson and Goat! The goal is to get part support fixed in the USA, build up the driver community and get hobby stores catering in onroad racers to start stocking items. I'll be at 2-4 major racers/year... And make sure our team drivers will be there to support where I cannot be. First race with support will be the ROAR Carpet Nats.

Brandon - if u let me know what u need I may have it already, or will make sure to get it. The order goes in after 10pm tonight.

Mike
