I didn't use the spool, but there's a picture of someone else's in this thread a few pages back right after a crash. Check it out.

I didn't ever hit the car (I only tested it a few times and left it on the shelf since) but I managed to break a driveshaft cushion trying to fit it on. It just snapped in my hand like glass. A lot of people reported bodyposts breaking instantly in crashes. Read back a bit and you'll see. I guess once you have the car in your hands it is a bit easier to feel the plastics aren't quite right. They don't feel like the "normal" plastics most cars use nor like the carbon parts of other cars. They just feel like a cheap rigid plastic.

Are they still using e-clips on their hinge pins & the Spur assembly?

I will let you know when i will have more time with the car if it's ok or not but after 4 days of intensive racing in Lipo and mod 4.5 everything is quite fine for me

For the hinge pin no more clips, in the avid v2, it uses small screws like most of the cars.
For spur assembly, there still one big clip like on the 416, i don't worry a lot about that part but anyway i will let you know if i have problems of reliability

Also I run the new CUBE-BL speedo in mod and I just love it. So small and light, easy to setup and very easy to drive!!

Hello Canto54

In the original kit, the car is sold with a "spool" or with a one-way front diff?

And your flex setting for asphalt is tight or soft?

See you soon on Monteux

One-way.

I sure hope they fixed all these little niggles, because it is a nice car with serious potential and I would hate to see mine gathering dust on the shelf forever.

Kit is sold with spool only.

About flex, car is really rigid out of the box, so i soften it a little to get it easier to drive

The question was about v1.

I didn't think the car was too rigid, it drove nicely, but I never tried the one-way. I bought a front diff before I put it together. On the carpet where I race, one-ways are a total waste of time.

Default Robitronic Avid V2 has landed in the USA

Hi Avid Fans,

I just received word that the Robitronic Avid V2 has landed in the USA and is currently in customs. The kits will be available early next week (possibly Monday).

We're receiving the "revised" 2nd batch. Robitronic resolved a few minor issues with their first batch, and now the Avid V2 is problem free. Like the original Avid, the V2 comes with alum. rear uprights, alum. steering knuckles, and much more, while still maintaining an excellent price point.

Robitronic USA and Speedtech RC have full parts support for the Avid V2. All parts are arriving with the V2 shipment.

Pre-Order yours today and it will ship out early next week.

Cheers,
Jeff Yung

The original batch had some minor fitment issues. The 2nd batch resolved those issues for a much cleaner build.

The new Avid V2 has just arrived in the USA. It is ready to ship to all the hobby shops that pre-ordered the car.

While looking at the new Avid V2, the plastic body post should be much more durable since the plastic is much softer and much more flexible then the original Avid. This is just one of many improvements to the new car.
