Ok guys,
with the changes from the Avid to the Avid 2 which are not that many,
Bulk heads , Shock towers , Top and bottom deck ,steering plate ,(all moves in the right direction) and all of the rest remains the same which is great for the customer.
I have been asured that the amount of front end steering and grip has not been sacrificed in any way and that the overall package is going to very competative with the Xray T3.
Now where is the best place to buy the New Avid ???????
and how much????

Thanks DJGonzo69
that is a very good price , about $100 cheaper than T3 and about $300 + cheaper than here in Australia.
looking forward to the Avid 2.
Thanks
Steven

hi all,
I drive mine for two carpet races now!! Car is pretty good on high traction carpet. I will post a basis setup for rubber tyres when blank sheet will be avalaible.

About building the car, absolutely no problem. Just in the shocks, I use tamiya black bladder and blue oring.

I think i will have a V2 soon!!

I saw you already did one of the modification that i was thinking. Remove the steering screw on the upper deck.

Thank you, once i will get the car i will ask you for some good starting setup

Another question, you know something about the new Lipo holder?
From Robitronics they told me that will be released soon, but i don't know the features.

yes this mod help to have little more flex and make the car easier to drive while keeping lot of steering.

About LIPO holder, they should be available soon as other tuning options like harder chassis for foam, thinner upper deck for more flex, all sway bar with different thickness and different springs too

That's pretty much the whole car (costwise at least).

I think the main change that I would like to see is better quality plastics which were pretty awfull on v1.

The balljoints were pretty crap too, with very rough surfaces and threads bent on half the balls in the kit, so I had to bin them right out of the box.

I didn't run on the V1 but as far as I know, plastics are different now.
they are harder coupound. For example for wishbone there is a new reference with R at the end

Im also going to have the V2 car, as my first pro electric touring car...
Any suggestions when building the car? I have nearly no experience about carbon main chassis and ball differentials, so any advises for building them?

Thanks!

That was the problem in the first place. The plastics were too hard and easy to break without even being carbon. It was just crap hard plastic like some of the rims you buy and break at first sneeze.

Yeah, buy another car. This is not a good car to start on in the world of TC. A tamiya is best for a beginner and even that is not a walk in the park.

I will ask my contact at robitronic what is the exact differences for plastics
To be honest I had several big crashes on carpet and i didn't break anything.
Spool outdrives seems to be very strong compared to my previous Yokomo BD5
