Less front spring or less front dampening or harder front bar or more rear droop.

Full top deck will rob you of traction...

You could also play with front toe. I run zero but some toe out might help. Dbl check your Ackerman is right too...

yeah i usually run about 1.5 to 2 degrees of toe out. so i was running 0 toe as per the setup sheet. might be my problem. i may change the ackerman back to what i had before. will try one at a time till its where i want it. thanks. doug.

Hi everyone,

I saw on Freddy ETS Luxembourg's set-up he was using AT31 instead of C31 FFG rod (and running the Raceberry chassis). Why prefer the use of AT31 instead of C31?

Another question: do the AM28 (trial caster link) replace the P38 (FCB Link)? Any feedback for the AM28 in comparison with P38? I understand the main difference between both parts is the material (aluminium for AM28 and plastic for P38), but is there any advantage in using AM28 instead of P38?

Thanks for answering,
Best regards,
G-rem

AT31 is stiffer at twisting - better for modified as it provides "more direct" transfer of power to the front wheels and less deflection of the front gearbox.

Interesting video from our factory team driver Ahn ( Korea):

Thank you Oleg

Do you plan to do another stiffness comparison between C01-AL + AM30-5 (+ C21) and C01-AL-S + AM30-5 (+ C21), like you did last time?


( AWESOMATIX A700 + parts )

......
C01AL-S torsional stiffness measurements showed 80% of the standard C01L carbon chassis stiffness.
and 130% with the completely screwed AM30-5 stiffener.

The measurement with C21 top deck will be soon.

New part from Oleg

Double Cardan Joint system for the front EVD's.

If you haven't seen these yet check out the Awesomatix Facebook page. Must have item in my book.

Thank you Oleg, one of the best enhancements I've seen yet.

This st17 replacement/option part looks very interesting indeed. Say good by to stabbing yourself with a 2.5mm screw driver.

+1 - this represents a significant improvement over the old design. Can't wait to try these!!!

Hi everyone,

I tried last weekend (national race) the new alloy soft chassis and i have to say that it's a big improvement to compare the other alloy chassis (C01-L) !!

The car has more traction, more steering and easier to drive.

I used it with the C21 top deck and the central stiffener AM30.

It was on a low-med traction track with the Ride34.

I too had a great outing with the c01al-s this past weekend in mod tc. As compared to my Raceberry chassis car, the car was much more raceable under pressure. It had more forward bite allowing me to smash throttle without getting very loose. I ran with am30-5 and no top deck. Hope to try other configurations this upcoming Saturday...

I always thought the rear axle on the a700 was the bee's knees of cool machining, but the new DCJ is pretty awesome. Nice work, Oleg.

Hi do you guys think the new Awesomatix Double Cardan Joint system can be used in other car brands?

I don't think anyone has tried then on another brand as there is no hole in the axle for a pin to lock in the wheel hex.
