Soon there will be nine Awesomatix in the Amains all over the RC world....lol.... It's good that the Russian rocket's name starts with the letter A , like the A main where it belongs; other cars name are way Off, namely VBC (Vmain), and Xray (Xmain)....lol..... Just sayin !!!!

Thanks the car was awesome and I benefitted from some tom foolery up in front and just tried to keep it out front until the buzzer sounded. The team worked very well together as usual and worked to try and lock out as many main positions as we could. Josh had the pace all weekend but small little mistakes were keeping him from TQ'ing until the last round. I was disappointed that we could not lock out 13.5 too as Adam had great pace all weekend, but we all know Drew is a hell of a wheel. Anyway I will get my setup posted today if anyone is interested.

The race was great...anyone that missed it really should not next year.

Thanks... The tires were very consistent and felt great on the track. Like other modern rubber tires they are a little harder then the tires we remember from back in the day. As a spec tire they are really good and I felt like the tires stayed out if the way of the racing, which is great.

How many runs till you feel they go off of competitive laps

Default Rear caster effect?

What is the effect of different rear caster values? I've seen different numbers on different setup sheets but I don't understand how it would change the behaviour of the car. I've also seen a -4 rear caster, does than mean the hub would actually be leaned forward four degrees?

It is mostly used to change wheelbase on the car... -4 would be a shorter wheel base!

Hello to all ...
some of you are using the new aluminum frame on asphalt?
you have a set up to suggest, I run in Italy in the category of stock no-timing and 13.5 should I prepare for a race on a track where they are models 1/10 with a combustion engine.
I leave my mail sergiozanninelli@gmail.com
thanks

Just ordered my EVO, cant wait till next season now. Should go along nicely with my L and EXL, will most likely convert my L to a FFG as well.

guys,any advise on cooling solutions for my evo?

Usually I'm running 13.5t boosted and modify 4.5t with some boost and turbo on my belts Tc

My evo is running 30-40% more temp for the same setup.

Any ideal?
