What do I do? I literally took that shock out of the bag and that's what it looked like... Should I take it apart and try to fix? I don't want to mess it up

Got two setups from Kyle Klingforth today...
He TQ'd 17.5T this past weekend at the MMR Challenge. He unfortunately didn't have his car right for the main... and allowing someone else to take the win. Brent Klingforth took 2nd in 17.5T and VTA.

Oleg,

This is just a suggestions but i think it would be easier for all the new drivers, myself included, to understand a setup sheet when creating it or reading it.

Is there a chance you can modify the current setup sheet to better show the Standard, AM18, and AM19 mounting positions? Something like an elevated ISO view of AM19 and 18 and you select the screw hole for those being used.

I think the current arm assembly views could be made smaller so there would be room for the extra pictures.

To add to Mikes report, I was not driving very clean in the mains or the VTA and possible TC would have been a wins, my VTA car was .1-.2 faster than anyone else, I TQ'd by 3 sec.

Kyle's car was very fast. If your running Sweep QTS 32 tires on med to high traction try the MMR setup. If your running the same tire on lower traction try the 5280 setup. Neither of our cars on higher traction had a tendency to traction roll with the sweep tires. So if you having issues try one of these setups.

Hanulec helped me guys... Tysm for this message board

I'm sort of a rookie when it comes to this stuff... Especially awesomatix stuff.

I would second Bkspeedos note Oleg... You have clearly designed an awesome car! If you added a few descriptions/set up suggestions in the instruction manual like the Xray has, I think it would be easier for the rookie like myself to understand better how to adjust and build/setup this car to its maximum potential. Just some simple explanations about how the shocks mount right vs left and what the available options are for camber positions with different parts and what the effect is for each ... What the stiffer vs weaker sway bars do and how caster affects handling on a low vs medium vs high traction surface!

Xray does a great job of explaining that stuff for rookies In the manual, which for me at least, makes me more Comfortable Making changes and helps me understand what set up changes affect what and how etc etc etc. I'm not trying to compare this car to an xray in the slightest, but sharing some of your knowledge via the instruction manual would go a long way to Helping get people get more comfortable with the car.

Anyway, I love the car so far... Just my thoughts! Appreciate all the help guys!

Justin

Anyone like to comment on the change in handling with the aluminium chassis?

Those awesomeatix cars indeed didn't have traction roll issues, which is what I fought all damn weekend (change of pace from our normal grinders) and thus, couldn't focus on turning up the wick and trying to keep going!

The chassis is much stiffer than the L/EX so it really makes a setup shine (or shows setup issues). I really like my alloy chassis car --- I'm just excited to be able to get more chassis soon!

Is there a new chassis comming? I'm not a lover of ali, too easy to get tweaked in a bang, a stiffer carbon (not thicker) might be a good option, I found the original chassis carbon to be a bit soft. I do really like the new parts on the EVO though.
