Yeah, I just saw the rub mark, do you think it will cause me trouble though? In 13.5 Blinky? Not sure if they're solid or hollow?

Default Correct rear steering arm?

Hey guys, can someone confirm if this is the correct rear steering arm for the EvoII? I'm following the instructions on building the upper rear arms, 10.3mm and 12.4mm for the links. I'm not getting anywhere near the 1.5 degree camber, -4 degree caster, 3 degree toe in that is listed in the instructions.

never trust the link measurements. just adjust them to get the caster, camber and toe you need.

Long time admirer of this car, now finally was able to pick up a 2nd had a700l from an rctech member. I would like to know if anyone has had any experience/purchasing from the main awesomatix site not the USA site and if their purchases went smoothly? I have placed/paid for an order with them 2 days ago and haven't had any communication from them yet. I guess I will leave it for another day and email them if nothing by tomorrow.

I've ordered from there quite a few times. Never had a problem.

Like Voodoo says for the length of the links but at least check the link symmetry it can be off a tad because of slope on car and setup station but higher will mean something is wrong...
The AM23 you show it's the old style arm the AM23-1 (one position) is the proper EVOII arm. It's longer probably to conserve the geometry of the shorter wheelbase of the newer chassis (Aluminum S1, S2 and Carbon L2).
Personally I always used the inside (shorter) position. Experts can explain you the real effect of the position
AM23 on top of AM23-1


AM23 vs AM23-1


Personally I would use the more inside position and call it a day for now and on your next order buy the AM23-1 arm.

Hi ALBOP,

You wont like me but when I look again at your picture I remark a few things.
On your next order I advise you to buy the long shock rod (ST05L) to prevent the binding of the shock rod guide (SPR02) and damaging the shock shaft.
At the same time you may also buy some sway bar stopper (P42) to prevent extreme side to side movement of the sway bars.
Sway bar is of the older type also (colored one vs black with white marks) but if they are straight I don't think it's worth to buy new ones.

Nothing very urgent but trust me the long shock rods will pay for themselves in the long run.
My two cents

I have ordered from the main site a few times when the USA site was out of stock with 100% success, so you can definitely trust them. The payment process was a little unorthodox from what I'm used to though; Rather than paying immediately on the site they sent me an invoice to pay through PayPal. The first time I made an order through them this invoice email went into my Junk folder, so I thought I was being ignored as well. Once I paid the invoice they were very responsive.

So moral of the story is if you haven't actually paid yet, check your junk box for an email from "[email protected]".

i replaced the chassis on my Evo2 since it was pretty beat up from some asphalt use. In my spare time I decided to sand the finish off it, thought I'd share. It's kinda cool actually, might end up using it at some point.

It would be interesting to see if you feel a difference in chassis flex running with and without the ano. Anodizing can actually add some lateral and torsional flex stiffness.

Has anyone else noticed that when using MM2 and a 37t pinion it hits the top of the brace on the spur gear? I put 1mm spacers under it last race meet but not sure if this is viable long term. Need to get down to a FDR around 2.9 for 21.5 blinky and the smallest gearing I can do is 37/50 which is just in the ballpark.
