You do know you have a one-way on your car right now, right? They come with the kit.

The sizes you are looking for are in the manual. I do not have the manual on hand right now, but they are in there. Refer to the appendix for the parts break up.

AVID parts are expensive? Really? This is new. What parts are expensive? I know the aluminium parts are expensive. But the plastics and CF parts are cheap.

Yeah, the shock towers are more expensive than even the Xray shock towers.

Agreed there.

Any news on the AVID 2 that is in development? October is around the corner and that was the release date mentioned for the AVID 2. It wasn't confirmed, but I am anxious to hear some more news about this new great car.

I want to pre-order it for when it hits the US.

Hey Pinggoy, I sent you a PM about your AVID for sale.

Also, anyone else selling their AVID, please send me a PM. I truly love this car and performs very well on asphalt. Please PM me with pictures of your car, any parts you have for sale, and your asking price.

I will not take cars with your electronics in it. I would like only the chassis and any parts for sale. I will accept tires with the package if they are JACO Blues or Greens.

I have recently rebuilt my rear biff the unfortunate part to this was that i had no standard ball diffs and could not get them in time so i went to the local bearing supplier and got some balls as close to 3mm as they had (3.125mm).
Then just drilled out the holes in the diff belt pulley then put it all together, works a treat smooth as (don't forget to run your diff in).Oh by the way it cost $5.50 for 88 balls. (0.06 cents)each.
As for your diff rings just some super fine wet and dry to smooth it of and you are good to go.
As far as running on Asphalt that all i do and all you have is the normal wear and tear (10.5). once you get into mod it is high maintenance.
It is only the Aluminium parts that are a bit pricey all the others are not to bad price wise (Australia).

He doesn't have his car anymore. I am the new owner of it... whenever it arrives.

It will definitely pay off to have a second car for more parts. I have enough parts to keep me running for a year or two, namely due to thanks by James at SK Motion (the distributor of the car for us "Yanks").

As far as the rear diff, I may rebuild it again and use Ceramic bearing balls. I am also thinking about replacing all the bearings and using Ceramic all the way around for more free movement. What say you?

I figure I bump this thread with the upcoming Hobby EXPO late this month. I was wondering if there was any word on the AVID 2?? As far as I have heard right now, it is being scrapped or may not be available in the US anymore. Is this true? I haven't heard Robitronic debunk this either. So as far as I know, it is true.

Waiting for official word. Otherwise will be going back to Xray cars. The current AVID is a very great car, albeit a major pain to work on. The new AVID 2 looked very promising. But right now, it looks like a pipe dream with pictures.

Any word from overseas? Drivers for Robitronic?

The guy at Speedtech seemed to think it was coming soon, hence the low sale prices on the original. He also seemed to think that the rear bulkheads would be interchangeable, so if that's true, I'll definitely upgrade to those. I can see that it will be a pain to change the spur out and work on the rear diff. If you have any tips I'm all ears. Well I got mine yesterday and spent all evening putting it together. It really is a beautiful car. It is also built very well and everything fits perfectly.

I am sure that you will not be able to just put the rear bulk heads on with out a different top deck.(you would have to make one up)
This is the unfortunate part of rc that companies dont look at the easy way to up grade there cars.
There are a few options that a mate and myself are working on at the moment.
The top deck will be added to the list.
Time to head of up to the Gold Coast to do some racing .

I have 2 tracks within an hour. One's about 32 miles and the other 55. It is kind of far, but well worth it.

Come on by to The Track dude! We can get your car setup. I will be sending Robitronic a setup sheet soon, so I want to set up your car with my setup and see if you get the same results. I just need you to show up!

Hey Jackster, I bought the Avid when it first came out. It's a well put together car, the only thing that I didn't like was having to disassemble the whole rear end to change the spur or work on the diff. So I don't think that there is an easier way to do it. One thing that I suggest that you buy is the front spool, it will help calm down the front end because the Avid has alot of steering. Now if you are running on a flowing track the oneway will work fine, but if the track is tight the spool will work much better. If you are running on asphalt, go to the Robitronics site and check out the team drivers setups. I can't remember who's setup I used, but I do remember that they ran red and green springs. The setup was pretty dialed and I just tweaked it some for my liking. I would also suggest buying back up body posts, they are brittle. One good rollover and that's it. Hopefully they have fixed that problem with the new car. Other than that it's a good car, I was pleased with it's performance.
