It seems more useful to buy full FX kit and get thereby perhaps many spare parts for normal A800X EVO at much cheaper prices.

Or having a good occasion to use all the spare parts which have been replaced during the last months...

Pretty sure that some people will be happy with a conversion kit :-)

Looks like IIC is fielding a fwd 1/10 class. 21.5 and 1300g. It will be interesting to see who wins....

�� A800FX FWD car kit
Another sneak peak of the forthcoming FWD from Awesomatix.
We used our well proven A800X Evo chassis as early starting point and developed step by step to reach the optimal weight distribution, lowest center of gravity and lowest moment of inertia.
Many parts from the A800X/Evo are suitable for the A800FX to guarantee an easy maintenance.

More infos and news will follow in the next weeks.
Stay tuned

Thank you,

The belt is 225mm compare to 351mm of MMCX car.
New motormount, new steering system, new flex system.
Weight distribution is up to F67%/R33% (adjustable in wide range) that is impossibe with normal A800X car layout and 1250 g weight limit.

The price will be on the level of the main FWD top competitors.

I like the Ideal of this new A800FX with the motor is behind the front rear suspension block..
I believe the A800FX will drive very smooth and fast … cant wait
My guess is using the old A700 steering style ?

Steering system is very compact (more compact than A700 system) to allow servo and battery be placed maximum front.

I've always had a thing for FWD RC cars. I think it's the realistic bodies that attract me to it. TC cars and GT now are using ugly blob bodies that are bastardized to make them look like something else. Having a FWD car with a FWD body suits me just fine. We'll see what happens but I'm really interested in this one. Now, if I could find a MazdaSpeed 3 body, I would be in heaven

The FWD Bodyshells in combination with the spoke wheels looking so good ! Will be a big optical difference on the track compared to the dish wheel touring cars with the ultra high downforce bodyshells.
Getting closer folks! :-)
