I do not have a caster doodle, so the caster will be off slightly (set as best I can for the mean time).

Does anyone have any ideas on what I could do to increase the turn-in and make the turn radius smaller? I'm currently running 2k in the rear diff, spool front. 1.5 camber Front, 2.5 rear. 1deg front toe, 3deg rear.

Cheers,

Glen
I'm at that stage too, same class (21.5) the car tended to push on corner exit particularly on a sharp right hander just didn't bring itself around enough and was clipping the left hand wall on exit.

A lot of different opinions on set up and to be honest I feel like the dumb kid in the class asking all the questions that I have, but what did help me was removing the swaybars altogether and giving the front a little more caster (4 degrees or so)

?? Not enough turn in. That is either 1) physical servo/steering setup issue. How many degrees of throw do you have on setup gauges? 2) a setup problem with not running the front end softer than rear end

Oh wow, i run 21.5 and 17.5 on A700s and no car in my club can turn like or has a smaller turn radius than the awesomatix. Mike is right, should just be the setup.

I have to ask, now that the A800 has been released, is there still development on the A700 series?

I have the MM2, and SD2 installed, no FFG or RFG, but that doesn't really answer my question.

I'm just curious, as going belt drive removes the need for FFG and RFG development, as the belt has "slack" that the shaft drive doesn't, making the car "softer" when accelerating due to the torque transfers, which has already been discussed many times

Oleg said he would continue to develop both cars. Post 194 in the A800 thread.

What is the life expectancy of the original a700 dampers, will they perform as the day they were made forever or will they deteriorate?

They deteriorate over time, one will leak a little and then the feel corner to corner will not be the same. You can feel the difference if you remove them and rotate then in your hand. The d2 dampers are probaly the single best improvement to the car
