Using "swellen" RIDE tires ?
It's a known issue of this non belted tires to grow a lot in size.
Soft springs - or cutting/sanding P09X will help here.

A800FX Evo 1/10 Front-Wheel Drive Touring Car

Based upon the class revolutionizing A800FX platform and the feedback from racers around the globe, we designed and created the new A800FX Evo FWD Touring Car. The main goals were to further enhance the performance in all conditions and increase the setup range to suit all track conditions.
Since weight distribution is the main setup tool for a FWD car, we re-worked the main chassis design and extended the wheelbase. This increase in wheelbase allows for further adjustability in weight bias and creates more forward traction. We also redesigned the rear of the car for better flex distribution.

The steering unit is a completely new design! We took the concept of the proven single bell crank steering from the A800MMX and transformed it into the A800FX Evo. The result is a servo holder with an integrated steering mount.This compact new system has less parts and is more reliable, particularly on unprepped or dirty tracks. To get enough clearance for the movement of the bell crank, we needed to slightly modify the front bulkheads as well.
With the new ST230 bumper weight there are now 130g inside the front bumper, which will further increase traction. Two pairs of included 5g and 10g weights allows to further change the weight bias.

The Motormount, which is placed dead center in the middle line of the chassis, combined with the newly designed topdecks, offers a variety of flex options. A new front top deck design provides increased front end flex and the option to increase flex even more by using steel collar inserts. Furthermore, the new included rear stiffener in combination with the vertical strut create even more tuning options.
Also included are the ST69-00 linear spring screws, as well as the AT119 alloy spring screw holders.
The D2.2-S-P Dampers with the P63 Damper Pistons are standard in the kit as is the adjustable C105A rear body holder.
All the new updates make the A800FX Evo even easier to drive on all track conditions and guarantee close racing at the racetrack. Grab yours and enjoy the pure fun of this class.

Special Features of the A800FXA Evo and A800FXC Evo versions:
- NEW C01FXAL 7075T6 2mm Alloy Lower deck for A800FXA Evo kit
- NEW C01FXCL 2.2mm Carbon Lower deck for A800FXC Evo kit
- NEW special designed AM24FX Servo Holder
- NEW special designed AM180FX Bell crank
- NEW special designed AM78FX Bulkhead
- NEW special designed AM30FX Rear Stiffener
- NEW special designed AT159 Strut
- NEW special designed C107S front topdeck
- NEW special designed C27FX-2 rear topdeck
- NEW special designed ST230 Bumper Weight (130g.)
- ST69-00 + AT119 Linear Spring Screw and Alloy Holder
- C105A Rear Adjustable Body holder
- D2.2-S-P Damper set with P63 Damper Piston

The worldwide sales start of the A800FXA Evo / A800FXC Evo car kit will be during April 2021 (exact date will be announced shortly).

Radio Receiver and Transmitter, ESC, Servo, Motor, Fan, Pinon and Spur Gear, Lipo, Bodyshell and Tires are not included in the kit. They are only used for presentation of full equipped car.

Do you recommend 16mm or 18mm servo horn? I don't know of a 17-17.5 on the market.. What's included in kit?

Looking forward to trying the new Steering Rack

18mm will not fit. For this reason either go with 16mm.
Kit - like always for Awesomatix - doesn't include spur gear and servo horn.

Look for adjustable servo horns. RC-Mission as example. Maybe soon also from MXLR :-)

16mm servo horn seems to be ok.. I can see why 17.5-ish is advised....

Nice to know that I can switch back to sliding rack with the new chassis for different track styles/conditions. Rear center brace is a nice add. Brace alone can be used on previous chassis as well (sans vertical strut).
I noticed the new Rear UpperDeck locks in tight at the mototrmount as opposed to previous.. Many good tuning options that can be used on first gen-car if desired. BRAVO!!

Looking forward to putting some laps in..

Hello,

Please show us your actual setup which you have in your car. Use the editable setup sheet for this and share it with us here.
Otherwise its pretty much impossible to give any recommendation about changes.

Front and rear same damper/spring setting is not a great idea IMO.
Try softer rear settings for more steering. Also try softer swaybar in rear! The 1,3mm doesn't fit into the AT142 without modification of the part.
Also more rear bumpsteer shims can help to generate more rotation/steering

Front and rear damper/spring setting rear softer
swaybar changed to 1,1mm
rear bumpsteer added 1mm shims
servo horn added 3mm
added C26

With all about changes feeling the car did turn more but lap time improved only 0.05 to achieve 8.92 lap time with 3racing civic body

Then changed to Bittydesign MK9 body lap time 8.68

the car is still stable feels that the rear wheel base is to wide

Want should I test to gain more rotation how should I play with the upper links shins or lower arms shins or what to test, Thanks

  • shift/add your weight ballast more forward (flip battery plugs toward rear of car, if not already)
  • softer oil in diff
  • alternate camber setting Fr vs Rr
