RoketRdr is correct. The only way I can add models is if I can get my hands on one. If the suspension geometry of the A800 is the same as the A700 then you could start with that model. The Awesomatix is a different beast with the leaf springs and rotary dampers so the RC3 model takes some extra work. You can download the A700 model and give it a try.

I spent some time playing around this weekend testing the new version. While doing this your suggestion kept coming into my head. Now that there will be 3 pages affected by setup changes it will be even more difficult to keep things straight. Soooooo the new version now applies setup updates to all pages.

It's taken a long time coming and took a staggering amount of effort but the just released RC3 Version 4.2 now has damping simulation included. Now you can see how oil viscosity, piston holes, temperature, shock position.... affects chassis response. This is one of the most misunderstood and difficult to comprehend subjects in setup. Now there is something that can turn on that light.

Big thanks to icecyc1 for sharing his Shock Dyno test data with me. Real confidence booster to know the model agrees with real world testing.

Check out the youtube video for a brief intro.

Make sure you are connected to the internet then open the program, let everything load, close it and then open it again. Then it will download the update.

I am running Windows 10 and Avast. I downloaded the demo today and both Windows and Avast didn't like some of the files. Is this an issue or is it just me?

Can you provide more details? I know the first time you run the program in Win 10 you will get a popup saying windows has prevented this program from running. You just need to click "more info" link and then Run Anyway and it will run. If Avast prevented the program from installing then you may have to temporarily disable it.

Not sure why this happens as I pay good money for a Code Signing Certificate that ensures the Software is safe.

Another update has been released with a few bug fixes and some small improvements. Doesn't seem to matter how much testing that's done there are always a few bugs that sneak through.

All 92 models on the website have also been updated to include generic steering and shock/damper models as a minimum. This should make it easier to explore the new features.

Also uploaded a couple new buggy models, JQ White Edition LV and Intech ER-14. Thanks to Markus and Swith Racing for contributing. Lastly three new 13.5T Brushless motor models have been added, Trinity 24K, Fantom FR-1 T and Fantom FR-1 M.

Thanks for a great app!

That said, I've got some issues:
-Worst is I typed 21.5mm ride height and apparently the model is corrupted;
-I keep forgetting to click save between page changes;
-A bit unnatural (can't remember the correct word to describe it) to navigate when loading models, I would prefer to have them under file->load model or such and have the dialogue box automatically close after loading a model.

Other than these minor things I don't have any complaints, good job!

I uninstalled it then installed it again tonight. The Window problem was due to an 'Unknown Publisher'. I ignored and installed. Avast didn't have any reaction to it tonight.

Is anyone having trouble with the md2 dyno link software since switching to windows 10. Since upgrading I am having difficulty getting the md2 software to work. I am able to establish a connection but as soon as I start a dyno run it errors out. Has anyone else had this problem?

md2 dyno doesn't like Windows 10 at all, I still use an old Windows 7 machine just for the MD2 dyno and my Eagletree
