Good day mr. hanulec.

I just want to ask if there's a free shipping promo going on right now within the US? I saw a link at the site. TIA. Cheers.

The free shipping deal is for any non-team driver in the USA and Canada on any of the three kit styles -- A700EX, EXL and L. If you add parts to the shopping cart the web site adds shipping costs but those are refunded when buying a kit...

Thanks for the reply and clarification, sir. I just can't figure it out on how to get the free shipping option since I am adding some parts on my order (+ the kit).

I think now is the right time to grab one. Cheers and more power.

The refund of shipping when adding kit + parts is done manually after the order is placed.

Hi all, I am just rebuilding my standard A700L for asphalt season and need some help:



I have never driven tc on asphalt so no idea what setup would be good to use. -or even start with, I have no time to test the car before next race.


The car has stock parts, no hop-upīs.(other then steel diff gears and the u-rings on shocks)

The track has low to med. grip. I guesstimate that track temp will be 20-30C -low 20īs most likely.

We use Sorex 32R tires premounted so stock inserts.
I just ordered tire heaters and have no idea of heating temp or time (and sauce or not).

I will drive on 10.5t pro stock(blinky) class.



I tested the car today with old sweep 28 carpet tires and the a700exl lowrc setup.(but with 6mm ground clearance)
It was a handful to drive...-some front bite(not much) but rear was sliding all over.

That is my only time on asphalt on this and have no idea where to go with setup. -I understand that the tires are 80& of the setup and sorex ones will change things but would like to get something close to ok setup to start with sorex 32 tires. -thinking maybe this http://www.petitrc.com/reglages/awes...swold20130504/

Hi Pate--

Did you use any traction compound?
Did the car get loose over time? Or was loose to start with?
What diff oil?

Things to try, assuming you applied traction compound--
- more rear toe in
- less front toe in
- less rear droop/more front droop
- thicker rear oil
- try a variety of shock/spring configs... Too many variations to list. Id start by increasing dampening on the front.

Mike

Hi Mike , first few laps were better . After that the traction went bad.

I did not sauce the tires.(track was a bit dusty and thought the saucing would collect more dirt)

Diff was filled with 2000wt.(and 4 little steel gears)

Less toe in? -I never used toe in on front , .5 to 2 deg toe out is what I normally use.

I will try more toe in on the rear.

Thicker rear oil? -I guess you are saying diff oil since shocks cant be refilled.
I thought that 80wt-2k oil is the range to use?

I did try more droop(front and rear), and without stabilizers. both changes made the car handle worse.


So the lowrc setup I used should be close to the truth on asphalt?
(so I should try it with the new sorex tires before changing anything?)

If the car fell off, it might be that the tires over heated. 32 tires sound soft for asphalt too. We run 36 on asphalt even when it is cooler than your temp...

I really think tires might be your issue.,..

The low RC setup does work on asphalt.

Thanks, do you belive that is ok even if only stock parts are used? (not am06s)

And the 32 tires are control tires here so that is what I have to use.

after enough testing/trials you can make anything work...

The problem is that I have to go straight to the race. Most likely I cant test anything before race day. Thatīs why I am trying to get the most accurate starter setup so I have half a chance in the race.

But looks like the lowrc is the way to try and go from there.

-Any thoughts about the tire warming? -how hot and how long is needed to get the most of the tires ?

(I have this on its way here and have never used any tire heaters)



Thanks for your help,

-Pate

i never used those warmers before. warmers generally work best w/ an oil-based traction compound. in the USA we have Gravity RC LG2, SXT #2, or Trinity Tire Tweak. In Europe I'm familiar with MR33 Marc Rheinard Outdoor Additive.

new tires often work best with a more aggressive/less oil/non greasy traction compound. this allows the tire to break in. In the US it would be either White Can or Black Can Paragon.

I'd recommend you try three things-

#1 without warmers on new tires. find a carpet-like, non-oil/greasy traction compound. apply on tires for 5 minutes, and then run.

#2 without warmers. applying a very little amount of an oil-based tire sauce (drops), and using your hands to work the sauce into the tires. let sit for 30 minutes before running.

#3 using warmers at 160 F/70 C, apply more oil-based tire sauce this time, and put a paper towel between the tire and warmers to prevent from making a mess. let bake for 30 minutes before running.
