I had some spare so sorted just as I bought a 2nd handy having a tough time completing a race so I have torn it down completely and it was a train wreck. (Ex carpet car from crux888) Hoping I got most of it done now, then it's a case of upgrade to Evo 2 spec I guess)

Agree 100%

I am very picky when it comes to SP02's being straight, esp when using the new dampeners. Even with the down stops and up stop set correctly the flex in the graphite arm can cause them to tweak from time to time. Since switching to the "L" shock rods the SP2's have been much better. A Worthwhile upgrade IMHO.

Hello,

I have ordered an A800 but decided to pick up an A700 as well to see the engineering before my A800 arrives. When I bought it on eBay the guy said it was an original A700 with the FFG. Is there any way to confirm what version I have as it comes with some different things from the original I think including the cuts in the chassis and the different battery holders?

It seems to be in great condition but I just want to make sure I download the right manual and a good starting setup for carpet.

See the attached pictures...

Guys, I am working my way through the near 600 pages of this thread...

But as I am racing on Saturday with my A700L with FFG on carpet, medium grip, could someone recommend a setup for me to start with please?

Hi Mike, I'm looking for AM81 but can't find it. Do you have it in stock? Cheer.

This is an older setup for the just he L but give it a try since your running the carbon chassis. This should be a decent starting point.

I'm assuming your running 17.5 or slower? If your running Mod there's other setups that will work better.

Thank you very much for your help... we run 13.5 boosted on a reasonably large track. I have also been told that I am #3 dampers which I believe are lighter. Would you have any recommended settings for carpet for the #3 dampers?

Hello,

I ran my A700L today and it was great...but the car was very noisey under braking to the point where I was afraid to brake. Is there anything that I need to look at or is this just because it us a shaft drive car?

It should not be noisy under braking. It should sound the same as a belt car, no noise at all. Sounds like the bulkhead gears aren't shimmed properly.

Thank you, I am planning a rebuild so hopefully will get it sorted.

Just doing a rebuild before our nationals. And noticed on my shaft AT04-2 there's a couple of rub marks/gouges. Not sure when it was done, certainly wasn't there before our State titles at the start of October? And I've only raced once since?

Will this be ok to race with? 13.5 Blinky? Could the RFG of been the cause?

If I switch back to my old AT04, will I need to run the bearing support?

Cheers.

Probably some rub from the am49 tower, look if it's right there. If so, you can try to shim it up with .1 shims.
