Updated P06-1 downstop collars are available.

You should to remove some material from the available holes on your chassis according to the pictures. I use the thin round needle file for this.
This modification doesn't require the precise tolerance actually.

Is there an ETA for the new collars to be available from Awesomatix USA? I've got a kit on the way and I'm debating on if I should build it with these or the old collars that need to be glued in.

Why do I see that hardly anyone runs their covers over the diffs?

Tech reason? Just cause reason? For show?

It's all show, no go! The diffs and spool look 2 good to cover up! Most people seem to run without them indoors but use them outside.

I ran mine with diff covers indoors the first time this past week and I am happy I did. A part of the track was used that normally wasn't so my car was a fuzzy mess after each round and I wouldn't want that stuff in there.

Default diff

Built the new diff today..was a little tight, needed to sand the backs of the Xray sun gears a bit to free the mesh a bit..seems perfect now. I went slowly with it in small increments. I deburred the planet gears (not sure it was necessary). Here is a pic to show how far I went with the sanding (shown by grey areas) in case anyone else experiences the same. Started at 4.38mm ended at 4.28.

Its great to have that smoothness under load of the Xray diff now available in the Awesomatix. I've long felt Xray have the best diff. Maybe the NT1 metal gears will fit too.

Where is the best place to order a kit? Always have had xray. This kit very much more complicated to build? What spare parts most needed? Will be running this car in Omaha large track. Same as iic . Same carpet same. Same layout.

Awesomatix USA

There's a good size group of CO drivers that will be hitting Carpet Nats next year. We're also planning a pre-race weekend around the beginning of Feb, nothing official yet.

PM me if you need any help build your kit or with setup. What classes do you currently race?

The kit builds very nice. My ONLY complaint about the build was that you tend to have to dig through part bags sometimes to find something. I think the only thing that is a must to buy is the collars for the front DCJ/ECS shafts as far as parts to have ASAP. I haven't tried to break anything yet, but where I raced it the last couple times was pretty ugly and nothing broke. I did buy the plates to allow for shorter camber links, and ordered misc parts bundles just for spares. I also upgraded all the tie rods to lunsford ones. Assuming you run a fan on your previous car that was taped or glued to the chassis, you will need a fan mount of some type. R1 Wurks makes a nice one (if you can find one in stock), but I am using 2 of the orca ones posted a page or 2 go. You will need a spur gear also, the kit does not include one, and i highly recommend a servo saver, as the kit says to use a servo horn only.

Good luck, and I am sure you will enjoy the kit!!

It may just be my driving skill but I hope I can find a few tenths with new car.

Please check the length of your cross pin.
It should be short enough ( ~10,4 x 2 = ~20,8mm) for free movement in the slots after screwing of the diff's cases. This is very important!
All our test diffs are smooth without any sanding of the original gears ( ~ 4.35mm thickness). Our big washers are 0,3mm and small washers are 0,2mm in thickness.
