I know you wanna see setups buddy, but a good place to start is to look at and talk to Mike Malkinson about his setup. He's got the best 17.5 around these parts....

Oleg or other guys, mine EVO is build at the anti roll bar step, but most of mine bars are not balanced, only two 1.0 and one 1.2could make suspension equally move, on the traditional cars we can adjust by small turnbuckle or ball stud but not on awesomatix, does this unbalanced bars matter? Or just put them on?

The way I handle this is by slightly bending the anti roll bar until the action is equal on both sides. To make it an easier and quicker process I remove the drive shafts, this way the anti roll bar can be bent whilst fitted to the chassis. For whichever side is not raised enough I remove P05 and push this end of the anti roll bar up whilst holding the other side down. It takes a little time to get it spot on but it shouldn't need to be done again once set.

I've never tweaked my sway bar. When they arent flat I toss them out. That is the only "test" ive been doing...

What are these measurement numbers (lbs/mm/grms, etc)? And how do you measure them? Thanks

If the set screws for the sway bar are too loose or too tight then you will have unequal suspension movement.

Awesomatix had a great week at Snowbirds, glad to be somewhat a part of it this time! Congrats to Larry and Hanulec on their wins.

The stock TC main only had two brands of cars participating, Awesomatix and Xray with Awesomatix taking the win.

Few things, how long does it usually take an order from the regular awesomatix site to make it to the USA? Also, when will FFG set ups be listed? And what did Larry run in the main? 700L, EVO, aluminum chassis, etc?

EVO with Aluminum chassis is what he ran. Being that we all just got back from the Race it may be a few days before the setup is posted. the Birds was exhausting this year especially with practice starting at 4am every morning.

Better question -- what does AwesomatixUSA not have that you want? Inventories updated aggressively last night

More pics.. A lot of stuff has no pic. So I have no idea what it is since everything is just a part number with little to no description. other than that it looks like you have what most want.

I just wrote a huge race report and my browser froze and I lost it. I'm sad.
