The car was really good tonight. The car reset TQ through each round of qualifying even with a talented field trying to hunt down best time.

Won the main wire-to-wire. Thanks to the great team at Horsham Raceway for a great Toys For Tots event. A great cause helping the community and kids during the holidays. Awesome power from ORCA, OHP and support from Radiopost.

Mark, which class were you racing boosted or non-boosted (blinky)?

Blinky. I have a boosted car but it will need a day of tweaking.

Default Screws too long

Got my A700, just started the build today.

In the first step (C-hubs / steering knuckles) noticed the 5mm screws and ball studs seem too long, hence bottoming out / not screwing all the way in.

Anyone else have this issue, if so how was it resolved?

Thanks in anticipation.

Alan

Hi Alan

This is ok, as long as the screws are corrrect there should be a bit resistance, the last mil or so, the holes are not tapped the whole way.

Hope this helps

Mark.

You can also use a .5mm or 1mm spacer to provide some extra shoulder to support the screw/ball studs.

The last turns of the lover ST03 Ball Studs and SB3x5 screws are tight.
Screw them with force.

hi Oleg,

letting you know that i have en counted a number of problems with the build

problems:
1.part am06 the shamfer on the hub is 0.4mm to much.x1 hub
2.part at13 shaft on hex 0.13mm to wide not allow bearing to slide on and all so on same part 0.2mm to short x1 hex.all these being out has allowed for major binding of wheel
3.parts pin02 missing from kit.kit needing 3 only have 1. so main drive cant be installed

its a little disappointing to have this as it would be something you expect from a much cheaper kit.but in saying that what was right was beautiful in fit and the car is a work of art.

doesn't sound great though, excuses or not, we're paying $1000+ for this car, you expect it to be perfect! I've got one ordered, no idea when to expect it though!

Rest assured Oleg will express post any parts that need replacing and is taking every measure to get the factory up the highest standard possible. One can expect a few teething issues with such a massive amount of orders to have process in only the first few months of business.

The car is well worth the wait

Hi P.I.M.P,

I don't quite understand what problems have you with AM06 and AT13 parts.
Could you please provide me some pictures to explain it.
Does this issue concerns all four AM06 and four AT13 parts?
We haven't received so far claims to those parts and more accurate description of your problem will be very helpful to us.

PIN02 - usually only one PIN02 uses on A700 car.
We put a set of two these pins in kits just in case.
This also applies to some other small parts which we give a few more than is necessary just in case.
Now we are going to increase qty of some others small parts for packing of kit.

We will send you additional pins and replacement parts right after receiving of your exact claim and your address on support@awesomatix.com
