I'm still trying to get my head around the original A700 (although I only got this 2nd hand a month or so ago!)

Ok, so there's definitely some reactive caster going on at the back with the RFG.

Or I've put it together completely wrong. The wheelbase gets longer under compression by 2* (caster).

In any case, i had quite a bit of dynamic toe out when i first had the rfg together. I now have 3mm shims under the inboard at21 balls and 3.5mm shims under the outboard st24 balls on the rear toe link. The rear toe link will also interfere with part of the rfg if the inboard balls are less than 3mm.

I can certainly emphasize with a "failnado" after our Spring Cup here. No doubt that without the damage to the front left I would have at least placed top 3 in 21.5

Nice work to the team, Hanulec.

I managed a 2nd in TC2 (13.5 Blinky) at the QLD State titles over the weekend. Car was great over the weekend, much better Sunday than Saturday, thus I was only able to qualify in 5th place, as we had 5 rounds Sat, then 1 round Sunday and the finals, but Sunday for the last qualifier I put in my best race of the weekend and then managed 2 2nd's and a 3rd in the finals (all finals counted).

Is there any issue with the Taiwan based online store? (shop.awesomatix.com)

Ordered some parts, got a note yesterday morning saying would ship that day but nothing has updated since and emails are going unanswered. Paid for EMS freight as I was hoping to get the car back on the road for AARCMCC points round this weekend (driveshaft pin and bushings)

...did look at the USA store but was quoted $48 US to ship just a pair of Caster Doodles!?!?!?!?!

Is it showing as shipped status? I find it'll take a day or so to go from processing to shipped, but then it only takes 2 days from there to get to me here in Brisbane.

Nexxus-- Australia is very good as losing small pkgs and/or non-ems boxes. The price of ems shipping is what it is.
