We also will produce the best possible chassis for our cars.


This car fascinates me no end. Is there a picture showing the floating gear box and how it works ?
Thanks.

I'll keep my Russianberry chassis ....thank you very much.... I am ready to build and test(in september).... It will push the limits of the A700ex with a 2.5t boosted... I am ready to blow everything up to test the limits and see what breaks....

I think the stock chassis works fine, I would like to see some optional arms that offer a different flex characteristic compared to the stock ones. Might be something to consider for future testing.

The Car is fine the way it is. It just needs to dominate the Mod Class by running more power(3.5t/2.5t) for a change instead of the 4.5t motors... I am counting on it's efficient drivetrain (with ceramic Bearings) to handle flawlessly the power that the belt cars can't handle well without burning up electronics... Efficiency is the One advantage that the pros haven't seemed to get their heads around. Everybody wants to be smooth, but want it to come easy instead of trying hard to get smooth with the more powerful 3.5t/2.5t motors... It won't happen overnight, but I think that's where the Awesomatix advantage is....

I have to say I'm a little astonished your using this car in VTA, it just doesn't seem right. I'm sure it will be unbeatable.
