Thanks was wondering about the USA store. Thought I saw something pop up about one being closed, guess it was the other. I'm new to Awesomatix and trying to figure out about the different sites and such. Got email today that my order had shipped thanks.

In trying to understand the basics of spring / dampening adjustment is it correct that you increase / decrease "A" gap to increase / decrease spring and dampening rates together and you increase / decrease "B" gap to increase / decrease spring rate only?

Thanks

Thanks
Small A- less dampening
Small B- big spring rate

So on setup sheets.... When someone says 77.6gf where did that number come from? Or rather how do I figure out my setup. Just for the life of me I can't understand that page in the manual. Lol. I'll prolly feel really dumb once it gets explained.

The editable pdf setup sheet calculates that value when you type in your shocks A and B value.

Spring rate charts can be found here as well -
http://site.petitrc.com/reglages/awe...0_SpringChart/

They are not an exact match to the setup sheet calculation, but are very close.

Determine if you have the kit stock springs on the car (hard springs) or the soft springs with an "S" stamped on them. Then, see if you have SRS 1 or SRS 2 ride height/spring screw arrangement on the car. This will get you to the correct chart. Then measure the damper assembly gap and the hook gap to see where you land on the chart.

SH0.1 Question. I realized I had 4 of these after the A800A build. Looked in manual and couldn't find where they go. Long story short in working on an Evo II I found where they go, between the hub and bearing.

Questions
1. Do they need to go on all 4 hubs on the Evo or just the front as shown in the manual. I assume all 4 but want to ask because of question 2 issue.

2. Do they need to be installed on the 800? If so I will have to press off and back on P16 and do alot of dis assembly. If I need to install them no problem I want the car to be right but am wondering if they are needed. If needed how does P16 like being pressed off and on again, should I get new P16's? Thanks in advance for your help.

The p16s will be fine. And yes they should be installed. I had realized mine never had any and just finished putting them on my car. The spacers keep the side load off of the bearings. Makes them last a little longer. I'll be at the track Sunday if you wanna come up and run laps, a bunch of us will be there.

Default AM06S Hubs

I bought an A700L a few years ago and assumed it already had the AM06S hubs. I just found out that it still has the original AM06 hubs. Since the AM06S hubs are not being manufactured anymore, would the AM06W hubs work on the A700 even though appears to be made for the A800?

Can't see why it wouldn't? They're interchangeable between a800 and A700.
