It should be used only if the screw comes out from the bottom side of your chassis plate. It will not happen on std. Axis2. I'm glad I could assist.

mini/jesse, that is true, providing that you are not using the A2 carbon top 3 pc deck. If this is the case and you have both long posts, it then goes on the RHS, between c clip and bearing.

Most of the final tweeking is on the chassis, which doesn't take very long to make once the pattern has been determined. The things that take time are the molded piece, which (as I understand) are all complete (or almost complete). Release date is still Nov 1 (26 days and counting)

Talking

markg....racerX was spot on. The drivetrain was assembled this week and will be run all next week as preproduction testing. Preproduction means the final molded car to check parts fitting, strength and handling in production form before final release and prototype is the hand made car (5 or 6 versons) used in early testing.

The car is on schedule for the Nov. 1st release date.

Anyone,

I'm considering to get a used Axis 2. Is this a good car? Which part of the car is prone to breakage or needs beefing up? What's the difference between this and the Axis 1? What's so good about it?

Thanks,
Ivan

ivan? is that you?
anyway, the main differences are the double thick chassis and of course the turnbuckle top deck which is said to eliminate tweak. most else is the same. some switch back to the rigid top for high grip applications.
