Thanks to everyone for the responses and feedback. I was able to find a great car on here (Thanks Jessele) so I'm covered for right now. I'm anxious to see how the A700 does compared to my A800. I run VTA and USGT so if there is enough performance difference and efficiency gain, I might have to snatch up another A700.

I'll post an update on the A700 thread once I get everything sorted out and tested.

Thanks again to everyone

Does anyone know what the size is of the OR155? I want to rebuild my dampers but can't seem to find any in stock anywhere.

new Amtx stuff is usually a December / January thing if the future follows the past. i'm typically going to Snowbirds in Jan/Feb with a brand new car that i've never run in a large competition before. sometimes there is great success -- sometimes, not so much!

Prob be a car for asphalt. Since a lot of the new ones geared toward carpet. I love my a800xa cars. Own 3. Faster with these than my X-ray t4. Plus no traction rollover
