Look who just got in here.



Thanks Mike, for taking care of my order (from NYc to here). It finally reached Bahrain safely (where I am currently stationed for work). Can't wait for my built then my initial test run at Sakhir International circuit rc-track.

Cheers to my fellow A700 drivers.

Our new option - Spur Damper set:
http://www.redrc.net/2013/05/awesoma...damper-system/

The RedRC info is not full so please see more pictures here.

Spur Damper set consists of:
AT20M Spur Axle M
AT12M Spur Nut M
SH2.7R Rubber Collars
OR09 9mm O-ring
M2x8 Cup Head Screw ( similar to RHS-1 Screw)

All these items are available now.

AT12M spur nut can be used with the standard AT20 also instead of the stock AT12 nut.
AT12M eliminates the 12mm wrench from the pit box.
You can use only 1,5mm hex driver as it no needs to tighten the AT12M nut too much. M2 screw tightening prevents the AT12M nut against the unscrewing.
The additional benefit of AT12M: the increased rotating mass reduces the gyroscopic and spin inertia effect from the motor's rotor.

Oleg,

Did the test drivers feel a noticable difference on the track or did it just reflect in the lap times?

With this spur damper the lap times are more consistent and the car is more easy to drive especially at low grip conditions.

Freddy and Viljami are using it now all times.

I used the spur dampener prior to and at the Reedy race in Mod. It helps soften power delivery and also softens braking. Also I have to believe that it also saves spur gears. So far I've noticed the improvement and am now using it all the time now.

One small note, depending on how tight you secure the spur nut via M2x8 screw it can make the drive shaft removal and insertion slightly more difficult . The solution is easy, just temporarily loosen the M2x8 screw while removing and insertion of the main drive shaft.

I used it on carpet too and thought it made a difference there as well. It isn't a "must have" otherwise I believe Oleg would include it in the kit rather than offer it as an option but I will use it going forward as I see it as beneficial.

Just remember that until Awesomatix / Oleg offers a spur gear with the required 5mm holes you will not be able to use it *unless* you modify your own spur gear
**OR** use a small bushing. This would allow normal non modified spur gears to be used with the optional dampener.

The small bushings can be pieces of heat shrink tube or any other plastic tube (ball pen ink holder for example) .
The width of the AT20M pin is 2mm and the standard spur hole is 3mm in diameter. So the tube would need to be ~ 2x3mm caliber.

Freddy and Viljami use the spur damper on the carpet also.

I recommend to add a drop of the grease or the heavy silicone oil between the spur and AT20M/OR09 for smoother damping.
