Turn in the RHS to increase spring preload (car go higher)
Turn out the RHS to decrease spring preload (car go lower)

Hope this help you!

P.S. Here a screenshot from the manual

Thanks so much!!!!!

I guess i could just buy the xray ball ends and cups, but I am sure you guys have a reason for the choice you made... would appreciate any thoughts. thanks so much.
Why not just take a body reamer and make a hole in the cup?

Looks like the A700 DJ will fit, actually a DJ CVD which is a bit shorter compared to the one I posted.

The new A700 Evo looks awesome btw.
Will be hard to resist from buying one, and I don't even like running 1/10 EP!

Our ST24 steel ball studs are suitable for 4,8mm ball cups with holes.
Now we are preparing our own mold for such ball cups.
Right now you can follow to Mike's recommendation and use a body reamer or 2,5-3mm drill bit for holes in our current ball cups.

"Evo conversion kit" - this is FFG set in fact and all our distributors will have this set soon.

The only issue with this is you can't unscrew the ball without taking off the cup. Being able to tighten or unscrew them is very handy because things can get loose over time and also when adding/removing shims.

On another note: The evo kit isn't out yet so but I am sure when it is there will be a conversion kit on awesomatixusa.com.

Mike,
What kind of setup were you running on your VTA ride? Your damper measurements would be especially nice to check against what I'm running to see if I'm in the right ballpark since I think you are running the older kit as well.

The VTA car I raced was an A700 upgraded to an A700L -- with the new style dampeners. I haven't written down the setup yet. I'll do it tomorrow...

sounds good. I kept the old dampers, I'd like to get the new ones, as Oleg offered them, but haven't had a chance yet.

I ran my A700EX in USVTA for the first time this past weekend. It was SO easy to drive. I used Karls setup mostly but with no sway bar in the back and a little more rear dampening and 1.5mm wheel spacers in the front. Other then that I didn't do much else to it. We ran 3 10 min mains and even with the motor at Max timing it only got maybe 94 deg. My lap times were maybe .1 slower at the end of the race. This car is just 2 damn efficient.
