Congrats to the Awesomatix crew for an impressive weekend granting that there was very little time on the new chassis/parts. I have no doubt it will dominate once figured out.

Sounds like I'll be selling both my evo 1's.

Need to save up for 2 Evo II's

Just tried them tonight and looked after a few runs, nice snug fit on the outcries and efficient

Thanks.

Where did you buy the ball bearings? Can they be bought online?

Yep, and it is smooth as silk and the tiniest ball bearings I've seen.

and the detail shot of these dog-bone bearings (bushing raplacement).

The race report only said that they were heavily modified from the original kit, maybe they are the same cars.

Sorry to create confusion here. G-rem and I were refering to our other car, an FGX f1 3racing car.

Pardon the OT regarding this post.

Back to our Awesome car.

Cheers.

Couple quick questions:

1. Figured it out

2.Any idea when more AM-09 will be in stock? one of the bearings on my 17.5 car packed it in and scored the runner, still works but is not very smooth.

thanks

Didn't know it's a factory option part.


Will place order shortly.

Anyone know what the setup difference would be if you have the original silver dampers vs the 2nd gen version? The older ones seem to be stiffer then the 2nd generation ones. I don't get much track time so this would be very helpful for me for testing some of the setups posted online.

Haha, love the way people are looking around for news
Of course, as JC said, it is another car, with nothing in relation with Awesomatix^^

i dont know the exact mathimatical calculation, but download the pdf setup sheet and enter the data into the boxes and it will give you the number, if you are trying to match up a previous setup to the new evo 2 then make you you have the std spring box checked not the soft as you will get different results. when switching to the new evo 2 from the first one i played with the numbers ( top and bottom or A and B ) to get a good starting position, in relation to cf/mm

hope this helps

Brent Klingforth posted a spreadsheet in post #6795 referenced above. You can type in your A and B values.

Or, you can reference the charts attached. I put these together based on Brent's spreadsheet. Keep in mind that these are for the soft springs.
