More up to date mounting pictures of the 40mm Wild Turbo Fan. I highly recommend this fan as it blows a much higher volume of air than any other fan I have found, remember, just because a fan blows air hard doesn't mean it will cool your motor better. Its about how much air is moved, not necessarily how quickly. The only drawback is that it wont pass tech at a ROAR nats, but thats pretty far off right now...

As I am making up a list of things to order, what parts should I order to keep stock? Also, what is the use of AM18-1 and AM 26?
the am18 allows for shorter camber links. i'd recommend looking at the am19 instead as it is stronger.

the am26 is used to allow for rear camber gain when running very low roll centers.

we have a list of spare parts at -- http://racerlog.com/wiki/Awesomatix_...2F_Consumables

or you can take a look at the awesomatix usa part bundles --

Do you have your fan attached to the upper deck? I'd think it might cause some issues if it is.

The fan is way too close to the motor !!!! It needs to be at least 10mm away from the motor......

The only issue with the A700 is getting the track width around 190mm with some Tires(sweep exp40)... I guess 188mm is the max sometimes... Let's hope for wider wheel hexes in the future.....

Wheel shims?

I add two wheel shims per tire to get to 188mm, and can't add anymore because the tire hex depth is too shallow... I guess the A700 needs deep hexed wheels to get to 190mm....

Final weekend for a lot of us to practice prior to IIC. I'll finally be posting the combined Mike / Larry setup that is working really well in 17.5 and 13.5 on carpet. New Awesomatix USA t-shirts are in and will be first worn at IIC. Get yours on Sunday Oct 6th when we have a little fun we like to call Tequila Sunday. T-shirts for anyone not going to IIC will be available after the race ...

The setup sheet will most likely be for an L chassis. I can say the setup also works with the EXL chassis.

Yes. They are sending my order to IIC for me to have there and I'll bring the remainder home and have them up on my site.
