Just curious, is there a post in this thread that explains what the spur damper is, what it does and under what conditions to use it.
Thanks.

The EX chassis is easier to drive on asphalt and it more suitable on most track than the L

You'll get many responses to this- the EX is good option for mod and 10.5. I particularly like the feel if the L for 13.5 and stock.

Ran Mike Gee's setup yesterday, with Hanulec's damper setting on my original A700 and it was great. Now to improve my driving on asphalt

What are all the extra holes at the end of the chassis for? Is it for inboard toe?

The extra holes are for short lower arms ( not for inboard toe).
The original A700 chassis has these holes also.
We have found earlier that the effect of the inboard toe is almost negligible for our 3-ball type arms and can be achieved by means of the our upper links inboard toe.

I don't really understand your explanations, can you tell us more about this? Does this means that a new chassis is going to be released soon? Or new arms?

Why did Vijlami run with the original A700 chassis plate in stead of the one of the L or the EXL?

Best regards,

This is one of our first ( very old) 2.5mm prototype chassis for A700 car.
We have planned the shorter arms as the optional that time but now we don't plan to produce the short arms and our new L and EX chassis don't have these holes.
Viljami has used this chassis right from the beginning of the event and the car was good and fast so I think Viljami didn't have enough time and desire for reinstallation and the tests of the standard L or EX-chassis as he had to prepare his mod car also this time.

For MOD Viljami and Freddy have used EX chassis as our thinner chassis samples were not good on this high traction track.

To John Doucakis: I've seen on your blog that you are building a new EXL kit with special cut down on it in face to the one of the motor,... (hope you'll know what I mean, difficult without any pics); is that a own modification or this is a new chassis plate included in the last released EXL kits?

What are the other modifications? Do you planned to use #3 danmper with SPR01S?

Best regards,
G-rem
