SWEET!

Another great week-end at the track ! Last week-end for tuning the car before the Quebec Nationals. I had the chance to receive some new tuning parts (I can't resist order them as soon they are available ...)



Awesomatix A700 EVO2

- AM54-3 (FFG Links Holder Rear) and AM42-3 (FFG Links Holder Front) propose new link position and make the FFG much more smoother !
- AM23-1 (Rear Steering Arm) : Didn't have the time to test back to back with the normal rear steering arm.
- AM05-2 (Rear Holder) look very nice !
- The traction was high and I have use AT13W ... seem feeling that the normal hex + shim ... look nicer and you don't have to search the shim on the floor when you drop it
- Yes, I use the A700-C04 (I found them less prone to pop out at the arm hasp level)

Cant wait to know which chassis ( alloy or carbon ) is best suited

I ran both at my outdoor track today. Both were pretty good. I want to test more with the carbon chassis, but like hanulec said the aluminum chassis last year was excellent in mod outside, and it was very good for my 13.5 car today. Our alu chassis definitely has a wide tuning range with the ability to change flex with the brace and motor mount types

Could anyone confirm for the GD1 diff O-ring (A700-OR03), if the correct size is 11x1mm?

It has been out of stock forever so I'm trying to buy from a site that specializes in O-rings, they have viton ones.

Aside from the chassis what parts would I need to make aluminum evo into a carbon chassis evo? I have the evo2 that I just built but I also purchased a used evo1 with some evo2 upgrades. I'm thinking I'd transfer that to a carbon chassis.
Thanks

Confused with the q. Sorry.
Evo was carbon to begin with.
Evo2 is alloy.
Evo2c is carbon.

Old Evo to Evo2c requires--
C01L2
4x c04m
Mm2
(4x d2 nice to have)

Sorry to be vague, these things are still new and confusing to me. While waiting for my Evo2 to ship I hastily purchased the following from Earl-

A700L
Car has been updated with most of the V.II parts, it has the newest aluminum chassis and the MM2(motor mount). Also has the Top balls/ends installed with all Ti turn buckles. All drive line bearings are ceramic. Has the screw together DCV joints installed as well.

I'm just thinking I could set one up with a carbon chassis.

you should look at the alloy chassis to see how is shaped. if identical to your new car -- then u know what it is. otherwise, its different

A700L car doesn't have FFG.
if buying a chassis, make sure to get a pack of P06-1

Thanks. I actually haven't even received it yet, been stuck in customs for over a week. I'll compare when I get it and get it all worked out

You will want to get the A700-C01L2 carbon chassis, plus P-06-1 to set up my car with a carbon chassis.

Possibly a dumb question but what are the P-22 clamping bars used for? I saw no mention of them in the assembly instructions
