Yeah I was freaking out for sure when I saw it route to Puerto Rico from Louisiana. Then it when to Chicago area that is about 2 1/2 hours East so I thought I was in the clear. Then it went BACK to Louisiana! Then flew to Des Moines, IA 2 1/2 hours West of me. I finally got it today.

Travis - Gee's setup should be good for ya. I have a slight variation of Gee setup by Matt Abey that I'll post soon. He tried to tame the car down/make it less aggressive.

Our friends in Colorado should also have some interesting setup ideas after a three day practice set over at 5280 this weekend.

Anyone run sweep premounts lately? Are awesomatix drivers still having to modify their hex adapters in order to run these rims?

Sweep rims appear to be back to normal... Without usage issues

So I am hoping for a good starting point to work with.
Glad you got that figured out....mine went fine for the 1st try, but my kit only has 1 pin for the shaft so I have to retrofit a short pin for the rear of the shaft.

Once you have the carpet setup, let me know so I can use it at Hurricane series...I am also going to run it for 21.5 USGT carpet after using it for mod ourdoor at LHR. I have quite alot of ppl to dare me to run it for USVTA....I said, why not....

I am having a some trouble deciphering these setup sheets... I am trying to use Gee's setup but I don't know what holes I should be using on the upper links for the front and the back.

I have found these pictures that show what my car looks like, but according to the picture the holes available do not match up with what the setup is using.

In the front the setup is using the 2nd hole from the right on both but the picture shows I only have the 3rd,4th,5th hole options in the front and 3 and 4 from the right on the back.)


The back shows the 2nd hole from the left in both spots but I only have the 3rd hole option. Do I need an optional part to run this setup or what am I missing.

Travis- Gees setup uses the inner holes on the am19.

Inner holes on am19 equals outer holes on am18.

I hope you haven't shipped my order I put in yesterday... I guess I will need to add them to that order if I can.

Upper links inner balls location on A700 and A700L&EX.

Please note that the third hole from the outside is the same for A700 and A700L/EX and this hole is the outer hole on AM01/AM01-1.
