When using the floating servo mount, you have to cut the upper ear of your servo, so no problem anymore ;-)

You should only have to cut the servo ear if your using the center servo mounting position. If you use the offset position no mods area required to the servo.

I've found when running the FFG it is good to make room for the drive shaft even when running the outer mounting position. Gives the FFG plenty of room to move around and the drive shaft stays clear from the servo. AM24 floating servo mount does make it a little easier.

Default Gd1

I haven't ran the car yet but I notice a little diff fluid leaking out of one of the outdrives. Any fix for this besides buying the Gd2? :-) Would green slime on the o rings help?

Mine was doing the same thing. I took it apart and cleaned everything and coated the out drives inputs with green slime and inside of the halves where the bearings go and orings and I even put some on the threads near the oring so when the diff halves are threaded and assembled it would further seal it up and have yet to have a leak.

2) the optional top deck C21 is supposed to use on high traction condition correct? Then when to use the smaller top deck C18 ?

Thanks.
Resending.... May I get some help please ?

#1
this will adjust how weight is transferred front/rear and how the car twists around the center post. small changes have big benefits here. you're adjustments should be in 0.1/0.2mm differences. try the adjustments yourself -- or just stick to a 0.2mm gap and call it a day.

totally moving the dt04 collars away from the am49 will produce a ill handling, pushing car.

#2
c18 is a brace, not a top deck. again, this adjust how the car flexes. i haven't tired it, but if it like any of the braces we tried against the C02-1, it will definitely make you loose rear bite under power.

If I may ask, what brand of spur gear are you using? I am using a certain 'brand' but needs some mod to clear in the SDS. TIA. Cheers

Questions??

Will any other Awesomatix Drivers be joining Brian Wynn at the Canadian On Road Nationals in Welland Ontario Canada near Niagara Falls?mThere are presently 73 Stock TC, 31 Super Stock, 21 Mod TC and 63 21.5 Powered Canadian Vintage TransAm entries to date. The Race is at the Centre Court of Seaway Mall. The Race starts a week from this Friday.

Paul - Xray, Keven - Associated, Andrew - Yokomo, Martin - CSO and other drivers will be there in Mod TC and Super Stock.

I'm sure many Canadian Drivers would like to see Awesomatixs in action.
