Was just about to post this.

Also, with not using am69 do I need to use mode 3 or 4 on the motor mount? Currently have mode 1.

The st03 are a larger diameter than the at24 aren't they? As for some reason, I had at24's installed in the hubs (on the bottom), not sure why the previous owner did that? As there were some spare st03's in the box.

So, got my RFG and installed it today. Is there any videos of how much movement there should be? As I've got a little movement, but not much. When it does move, it's smooth, but feels tight, but not sure if that's just because it's only a small bit of play?

No video
The movement is very small.. Yet effective on the track. Generates more grip in rear than we've ever had within the A700 platform

Trying to set my car up again, I can't get the front ride height any more than 6mm no matter how much I tighten the ride height screws down. Usually we run 6.5-7mm height on the large outdoor track

Make sure your droop screws ( down stop ) aren't limiting your ride height. ( loosen droop screws )

Check your plastic blocks. The screw holes strip very easily.

How thick are the shims under the front A arms ?

What tires / rim combo ?

Is it possible you don't have the correct ride height screws installed ( too short ) ?

Is there a good set up for a Low bite carpet. I'm running a 700L with FFG.

A700L + FFG is an A700 Evo

Please look at the Fairtrace setup from Snowbirds. That year the tires were harder than usual (although my preference) .. And that setup works very well on low grip

So had my first race meet, 21.5 Blinky, large flowing outdoor asphalt.

Q1 Ran into lapped cars, got t boned, left a nasty crack in the CF chassis, sealed with CA Glue, front hub came adrift, replaced a P04

Q2 Qualified well set track record in 21.5 with 19.16 second lap

Q3 Overcooked it heading onto the front straight and clipped the wall with the front left. Broke a P01 and P02, replaced, found the driveshaft had lost ST10 and ST11, did not have spares so tried to rig some wire to tie the CVD to the outdrive for the finals.

F1 - Forgot to retighten RH screw from front left, bailed on final.

F2 - Going well, car felt loose front left, bit of wire gave way, shunting me into the back left wall, Suspect damage to P04 on front left, back left spring popped out from P04 there also CF hub on front came loose (P06-1 popped off AT21, P07 was still in place)

So there it is, car felt good but some niggly issues, not sure if this is a durability issue or an unlucky day, regardless I need to order some bits. Any ideas?

If hubs are popping out of p04 please check the arm too. Often the circle becomes an oval.

P01/02 issues can be resolved with a zip tie or a little glue in the cross joint.

Other spares to have-- st05.
