2. If it is necessary, what part number is it?

3. What kind/ type of handling characteristic changes would I see going from carbon to aluminum?

Thanks,

C01AL are no longer available.

C01AL-S or C01AL-S2 (if you have MM2, or upgrade to it) would be options along w/ the AM30-5 or AM33-5 brace.

The -S and -S2 alloy chassis along w/ the brace allow you to tune the flex characteristics of the chassis. An alloy chassis in general will excel as grip raises.

I was always told Alloy chassis is for carpet, Carbon is for asphalt?

Getting my A700 times within 0.3 a second per lap of my T4 15, and thats only setting the shocks and springs etc, haven't touched sway bars, camber etc yet. Did lunch a spur though (oops)

This is running blinky 21.5

the awesomatix C01AL-S and C01AL-S2 chassis are different than your every other manufacture alloy chassis. the stiffness can be adjusted. we ran the alloy chassis outdoor all summer..

Yesterday an Awesomatix A700 with aluminum chassis TQ'd at our local outdoor asphalt track.

The track is fairly big and we ran modified.


The car was dialed!!

How do you stick down the electrics though? Almost nothing to stick to with the large cut outs!

What's the consensus on the RFG? We tend to have low grips surfaces here in Oz. I'm only running 13.5 at the moment, but will probably eventually move up to mod?

I actually made carbon fiber plates the hold all the electronics floating above the chassis they Attach with two screw holes down the centerline of the car works great and easy to change out your electronics

hi - i've probably run the car on the lowest grip surface w/ the RFG. the car ran a bit more consistent w/ the RFG -- but i wasn't in a big horsepower class -- but may folks do think my 17.5 motors are quick.

next for me is to try the RFG indoors on carpet as my outdoor season is done...

The bearing support is mainly needed when running the older and thinner AT04 drive shaft. The upgraded thicker AT04-2 shouldn't need it. Basically it keeps the drive shaft from wobbling at high speed. I would personally rather upgrade to the thicker drive shaft rather than run the old bearing support.

Going to try this setup tomorrow. Do you need to make sure the screws in the top deck go through to the FFG rod slightly, to hold it in place?

Yes, you need set screws in the am49s to hold the ffg rod in place
