Good point, I'll check that out.

Angling the lower suspension arm pivots (when viewed from the side) gives reactive caster, too, but in the opposite direction (shims under the aft ball will give increasing caster with suspension compression).

Putting shims under the upper arm aft pivot ball and the lower arm aft pivot ball, so the arms have the same angle when viewed from the side, will give anti-dive without reactive caster.

There are plenty of neat ways to adjust this car!

The gear chart in the manual shows 48P spur gears all the way down to 50T... I'm actually looking for a 48P - 57T spur, anyone have any ideas where to order one that fits this chassis?

The closest I have found are the Robinson machined spurs, available in 55 or 60 tooth (part #'s 1855 and 1860). The 60 tooth gives me all the ratios I need across all three TC-based classes I run: 17.5 TC, USGT, and VTA.

I use rw supa-light spur gears. They are available from 45t-105t. What motor are you using? I'd guess your probably using a 17.5 with that size spur. I run 17.5t blinky and use a 60t spur with a 29t to 35t pinion depending to the size of track

Thanks, I did see a distributor in the UK but wasn't sure if that gear would be compatible, I'll give it a shot. I'm limited to a 35T pinion for my application and will be racing in a 25.5TC spec class with everyone running Novak motors.

Oleg, just a quick question.

Can we have the ABS installed on an A700evo II with RFG?

Will you be releasing a rear holder similar to that of RFG?

Thank you in advance.

JC

AM05-3 rear holder of ABS can be installed on RFG after removing 0,5mm of material in two holes. AM42-3 FFG Links Holder can be installed over AM05-3 ABS holder in case of you need shorter top links on the rear.

Ran the car in a trophy event on the weekend, ran 21.5 got TQ, first final got the win, lapped traffic in the middle final wouldn't move and was taken out limped into 2nd with something wobbling, thought I'd fixed it, 3rd final, lapped traffic again, was coming back and then just stopped. Rear drivetrain had just bound up.

Stripped it all down and one siezed bearing, also some damage on the AM73-4 piece, workable or need a replacement?
