Cool, where do you race and how are you getting on with the car?

No problems at all mate this is a very light car standard, I'm running a 306g lipo, motor heatsink, slightly heavier Ti turnbuckles, LW speed 6 and 25g of ballast and i'm sitting at 1320g, i'm sure if i wanted I could get her down to 1250g lol. Check out my previous posts for more info.

The only email I have for Oleg is support@awesomatix.com, he is usually quite quick to reply. Hope this helps.

Just for the guys wondering which Bushings/Blades to use in the outdrives. Here is what we have found so far.

Square Brass Bushings - They wear out pretty quickly although do not wear the outdrives at all.

Round Steel Bushings - Zero wear on the bushing and Zero wear on the outdrives after about 30 runs! Awesome.

Cant see why you would use the plastic blades at all when you can use a bushing that doesnt wear and creates zero friction under load due to being able to roll in the outdrive.

We are hoping to find some 2x4x2 chrome steel bearings soon to try.

On the weekend just past Sandy Iavazzo (Awesomatix) won modified with Track record at quite a large event down here in AUS - I ended up fourth. Over 90 entries in total.

Very promising for a car that has only been in our hands for a couple of months.

Next stop is TITC!

Our limit here is 1380. I have 14grams of mid chassis weight, full size servos, heatsink + fan and DCD system mounted.

If I mount a lightweight body, Ill end up at 1385. The weight differential between my lightweight and regular bodies is about 15-22 grams

Found the exact results with the outdrive ends. Bearing replacements could be marginal above the steel bushings. Brian Kinwald developed those for the Losi cars that became known as the BK Bones. Pretty trick back in the day.

Cheers Tom, I've only run the brass in the front and plastic in the rear so far, the brass is staring to show some wear now after about 15 runs, so i'll change these out to the steel bushings all round. Let us know how you get on with the bearings!

Glad to hear the car is going as well on ashpalt as it is on carpet. Are there many of you running the A700? Maybe those great results in Oz are the reason the car is currently out of stock. lol.

I'm using the brass. Why didn't I think of it. So obvious once you put it like that

I'm down South, London/Herts/Essex..GMCC and HRCC

I'd say the car is promising because I'm not comfortable at all with the set up yet it produced very fast laptimes almost immediately.

New editable A700 setup sheet at download section replaced with new release. Solved one problem with calculation of suspension stiffness by some PDF readers.
