Hello Oleg

I don't think u have to add any support to the current car. I have been driving it for more than half year.
The only I ever have boken is my own lap record :d.

At the monent its only Mike Gosvig and I who drive the car. We hope to get atleast som 1 or 2 drivers more during the winter season.

I most the floating spool is very impressiv and really inovativ design, so great work Oleg keep it up.

Default Chassis

Hi
The only problem that i can see with the Raceberry chassis is the big motor cut out on one side of the chassis,surely this would cause different flex from side to side,also i can not see any milling out for the dampener body. Also the price 95 Eur plus postage.

Do you plan to make a conversion kit for all current owners of A700L/EXL?
Best regards

The LRP EC report plus some more pictures are here:

As we plan to produce new parts for 2014 cars so all new parts will be available as the spare parts and all will be suitable for the current cars also.

L and EX chassis have 2.5mm thikness under bumper already.
We don't have now any reports from the customers concerning the breaking of the chassis near the damper.
BD7 and 417 cars also don't have the additional supports for bumper.
Do you think that we have to add such supports for new car?
Hi Oleg

I have trained with a xray driver here in denmark and he make a little crash but the lower deck was broken in the front. I think if it not will be a problem with the awesomatix is it okay without. I have not a problem with that. My car works really good and keep up all the good thinks you make on the car

best regards

@zoomster
Hi,
The cutouts on the sides of the chassis are for laying down the dampers. It replaces the milling of the std chassis.
Also, the price isn't higher than the price of the std plate

Hi,Awesoman.
With the dampeners you will find you need the slot in the chassis but the diameter of the barrel part of the dampener with hit the chassis,you will need to raise it about 1mm just like you have to do with the factory 2.25mm chassis,my main problem i see with the Raceberry is the large motor cut out in the chassis,on one side.

The front bumper area of my "L" lower deck failed on it's 1st run. It split and came apart, the cause of the breakage was user error (I crashed). I also owned the original A700 and never had an issue with the lower deck. I've applied CA to fix it, however, it'll split again if I hit a board hard enough.

BTW, I don't CA any of my CF pieces. It's a risk I'm willing to take to ensure that the pieces fit and flex as designed. I'm just sharing my experience, nothing more.. nothing less.

How much should I fill the gear diff? Mine still seems too tight after many runs with the metal gears.

I'm definitely curious to see how the car feels with a thinner chassis. I think a bumper brace would be a good idea just to be safe.

FWIW I made a 1.9mm baseplate a short while ago, no big cut outs and symmetrical flex. It came out really nice. I shimmed the drivetrain +3mm (2mm over std) to straighten out the driveshafts, and cut off the 5th leg of the bulkheads. Car has been quite consistent and easier to drive but so far no faster over a single lap. And of course I don't know if that's due to the baseplate or the raised drivetrain. But I have still some way to go before I have an outdoor setup for modified with which I am truly confident. Just wanted symmetrical flex to help my OCD about these things, but can't say either way if its better. Nothing wrong with the original plate. Think I'm gonna make a belt conversion for fun to see what its like

Hey JB
For the A700 Go to PetitRC .com
look under Ivan Laptev ETS carpet track I think the date 10.2011
this set up is very easy to drive and more forgiving...
