The floating servo mount is separate
The kit comes with shims
The aluminum battery mounts are separate, but I prefer the plastic ones, They are much easier to adjust

Oleg did you change suppliers for the EVO kit bearings? Gotta say from the first build of my EVO compared to my USA the bearings were much smoother and immediately the car was freer.

JB-- Ceramic, they will be nice no doubt but the latest batch of bearings I got in my EVO were super free right away.

GD2, forgot to include it in the picture.

Just hope I can find a short, central stiffener so I can build the car with aluminium chassis.
Should be back in stock in time, first need two weeks to reverse-engineer the car into CAD.

I am using this set: Awesomatix A700 Ceramic Ball Bearing Kit by ACER Racing. Got it from ebay. Try it. The feel is now more fluid, making the awesome car more awesome. Cheers.

Awesomatix USA will be building a ceramic kit from avid shortly. I ran ceramic in my drive line (not hubs) at birds...

Here are the manuals for an Evo assembly. The combination is the standard A700L + the FFG/Evo manuals together.

There are some steps that require you to be mechanically intuitive to switch between the 2 and may not be exactly clear when to do so. With that said, read through the A700L manual fully, maybe a couple times before you build.

Very important to understand the build.

Just wondering why a lot of the setups put the .5mm shims under all the arms vs running the lowest center of gravity possible?

It's about controlling the roll center, not about center of gravity.

What is the correct size turnbuckle wrench for the Lunsford titanium turnbuckles? I have the Lunsford wrench, but it's pretty worn out and I need to order some other tools today anyway.
