Same thing happens to me!

I agree, compared to what other cons other cars have this is very miniscule.

Had my first run with my new A700EVO on Saturday. If you were on the fence about picking one up - don't be! Props to Mike Gee and Manny Flores for the setup help and encouragement.

Best of luck to all my new Awesomatix family members traveling to Cleveland this weekend.

Also Anyone know where I can buy some suspension arms
And P04s
And st-17-1-s

I clipped a board. And my front dcjs are getting worn.

I'd really like to drive this car - it is hands down the best car I've ever driven,

- but it's really hard for me to race/crash as frequently as I would like if I can't find parts.....

Imo the new style spool is better. Just keep a couple spare outdrives. Just like any other car with replaceable outdrives.

wstuart- awesomatix usa is generally very good about keeping things in stock. He sent a good chunk of the inventory to support awesomatix drivers at the us indoor champs, so this is why some things are out of stock at the moment. Hanulec has done a great job keeping stuff in stock imo.

Any idea of the factory fluid weight in the original dampers? (DL1/DR1)

I noticed last night during maintenance that this used car I bought had a blown one and I don't think they're supported any more. It was leaking fluid and the piston screw was spinning freely so the dampening was way lower than the right side. I managed to get it apart and tried 30k fluid but still feels light. I'm thinking it's around 50k? Or I rebuilt it wrong.

This used car in "good shape" is approaching the cost of a new kit very quickly.



Edit: I'll be at the Champs so no time to order new dampers, nor am I sure I want to drop the money on a full set.

The dr6/dl6 dampers are 60k fluid, and i believe the original dampers were a little stiffer than that, 70k ot 80k maybe. A while back oleg had a "trade in program" to upgrade to new dampers at a reduced cost, I think at iic hanulec said he would still honor it

Hmm, I'll ask Hanulec about the trade-in eventually. I've been blowing up his inbox lately so need to take a break or else he'll stop replying to me
