Might want to cut your wing down a bit, should give you a bit more speed.

The rear rotation is a bit better, yes

I've been looking to upgrade the chassis on my A700EXL, and want to try the Raceberry hard chassis. It's described as working best with the newer Evo car, but does anyone know if I could use the Raceberry chassis to upgrade an older car?

Hey Barry, as I understand the AL and hard chassis are meant for evo with no top deck, I think without FFG you really shouldn't run without one.

Just about finishing my awesome new A700 Evo but I have two questions that have come up:

1. The setup sheet shows more holes than exist on the car. So if I am using a setup sheet how do the holes on the sheet align with the ones in the car? ie outermost holes line up and you count inward from there?

2. The camber links seem long and I'm having difficulty tightening them up enough for appropriate camber while using the second from outermost hole on the car. Is there an upgrade/alternate set of camber links to use in those situations?

For the rear, The 3rd shortest hole on the sheet is the shortest hole on the bulkhead. The 2 shorter holes come from the optional am19 or am18-1 mounts. The front should be correct, the 3rd hole is the countersunk hole used to attach the mount to the bulkhead.

Putting a little grease on the threads of the turnbuckles will help. You should be able to use the kit turnbuckles with the shortest hole on the bulkhead in the rear and the 3rd hole on the front. You will need different ones if you want to use the optional mounts. would suggest getting Lunsford turnbuckles if you want to get optional ones.

Hey Gee, what settings to you tend to adjust for fine tuning a setup once you're set on the big changes?

Mainly springs and droop. Although it depends on what you define as a big change. At the track I'll change almost anything but shims on the lower arms and diff oil, only cause those are a pain in the butt I don't really consider anything to be more of a big change than anything else, I just try to see and feel what the car does on track, and then make the appropriate adjustments

Hmmm... I was thinking if the bulkheads were located the same distance apart on either chassis, it wouldn't matter since you'd be able to use the top deck if your application requires one. The only thing I hadn't researched is whether or not the FFG bulkheads mount the same distance apart from front to rear, and utilize the same mounting points.
