Default To add spacers or not to add spacers...

For those of you that switched to the TOP ballstuds and open ballcups, do you have to add spacers underneath to get to the same height as the at21's?

The TOP ballstuds are the same height as the AT21's

Running 13.5t blinks. All are tracks here in Sydney are Asphalt painted with Boral surface coat, so not high grip.

Hard to say for sure, I dont think any tracks in the US have that topcoat. I would suggest starting with this: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B0Z2...dCeXVPMTQ/edit
but change the damper gaps to front (4A/5.6B) and rear(5A/4B). This setup was extremely easy to drive so it should at the very least get you going around without too much drama so you can make changes from there.

Nice blog. I enjoyed reading it. Well written.
Didn't quite get the joke about the music though. If you were being sarcastic, believing the music was a bit lame, then I do not mind, I was limited to what youtube allowed me to use for free.
If you actually did like it, then I just got lucky to choose this tune out of the list that youtube provided.
All the songs of my choice had copyright protection and could not be used.

BTW I am just a racer with a blog like yourself, zero involvement with the company itself.

Will you be offering a plastic/metal pin of these dimensions?

Is there a pin, shaft of another manufacturer that would work (e.g. XRay, Tamiya's pivot pin, drive shaft pin...)

John,
Thanks for the feedback and back story.
I am sincere about the music choices and the quality of the videos.

Thank you

Do You use ceramic or normal bearings? Are ceramic worth to buy for Awesomatix and if so, which Do You recommend?

Same here. Started with stock EXL but since she's performing well every race thus making me happy I think she deserves some upgrades time to time.
