I saw the Videos, but it was not clear what caused you to slow down after you took the lead. The director hinted that your Car was running on three wheel drive, but it did not seem to have hit hard enogh to cause an outdrive to come loose....

Is there any kind of repair to do instead of buying a new one?

Thanks in advance, regards!
Are you sure it isn't a bent spr02?

All spr02 habe been checked as per instructions from Oleg in post number 3801.

I will say that my damper is around 35 to 45% weaker than the others, very easy to feel it in the hand.

Thanks for the advice!!

Thanks Brent, I'll start with your setup and go from there. Are most people now going to the shorter links? Is that mostly for asphalt or carpet as well?

Track width is pretty narrow in the A700, even with four Xray (#305380) wheel shims in each End of the Car...

few new setups from the boys at Middle River Hobbies (Maryland) and 5280 Raceway (Colorado) -- http://www.awesomatixusa.com/p/setup-sheets.html. there have been some serious laps turned recently leading up to IIC.

just a bit more detail about these latest setups. Matt Abey's setup is an 'easier to drive' version of Mike Gee's setup from August. Gee's new setup is about 0.1s quicker in 17.5 than his prior.

Regards!
After 10 months - I would be sure to look a 2nd/3rd time at Spr02 and SPR01. While the orientation of the SPR02 might look correct when attached to the dampner you might find it has some deformity that will lead to an uneven rate.

SPR01 and SPR01s might result in the same.

Although some of the initial dampners would weap beyond the oring, many of them were just bleading out excess fluid. The revised orings and dampners showed less of that trait.

I didnt read far enough back to see if you were using the original dampners or the newer two piece units - regardless I would suggest that replacing the dampners to the new revised #6 or #3 units.

It was a freak thing. I didnt hit a thing. The set screw of the spur axle loosened, the set pin disengaged and I was running FWD. Pretty fast for FWD only

Thankful that Awesomatix USA is close by to fix humpty dumpty. Read for the next round.

Your car looked great in round two. Too bad about the main.
