Look for any evo2 setup. This will out you in the right direction...

I am A700 for life... Nice to see Awesomatix give all the racers a choice between shaft and belt drive though....

No slight intended to the A800, which surely will be fantastic. However, my first experience in Mod TC with my new A800 is not on par with the first experience I had in Mod TC with my A700-series.

I'm significantly faster and more consistent with my trusty A700-series. Granted, there are many factors involved in these things but, at the moment, my A700-series wins over my A800.

So, for me, the jury has not returned a verdict. The A700-series chassis is a cutting edge touring car chassis and excellent alternative for all classes.

The A700 is still a fantastic chassis and, in my humble opinion, will remain so.

For me, Awesomatix changed my perception about rc cars, particularly this class, electric 1/10th TC because used to race alot with my 1/8th nitro on-road.

This A700 convinced me to try 1/10th tc and got hooked ever since.

Other manufacturers can claim their yearly upgrade as vital but as long as Oleg and the rest of Awesomatix team is in the business, nobody can beat it's innovation and uniqueness of parts/optional parts.

Yes, call me a fan boy. I am a fan boy.

Hey Guys & Gals,

I'm hoping someone could point me in the right direction. I have purchased some Lungsford 1 1/8 Ti Turnbuckles (LNS1162 from Amain) which fit the kits ball cups. But I'm looking for some replacement ball cups for spares, and I'm completely lost on what ones are best to get?

Could anyone steer me in the right direction?

Cheers,

Glen

You will need xray ball studs if you use xray ball cups. Don't buy them unless you want to convert.

Just to confirm, you are asking what ball cup other then the stock ones will fit the car's stock ball studs? If so then Kyosho cups fit. The HD grey ones work very well but honestly once you learn the tricks to the actual kits ones, I have never wanted to try anything else. ( Must pre thread and use a bit of wax or grease on the threads)

If you want to switch to XRAY or TOP ball cups you will also have to purchase the Ball studs from the same company. they are not the same size as Awesomatix and you will also have to do some math with setup's as they are also different heights compared to the sock awesomatix ball studs..

Hope that makes sence and helps

Ok... guys,

I just cannot make the gear diff & dampers from leaking, no matter what i do (including changing new o rings).

Is there any special way or trick you guys are uaing besides follwoing the instruction from manual??

Just in case, green slime is not stopping the leakage.
