I am working with them to get them to build some sets for my next order as I have had a few request for them.

Thanks

I'd prefer all titanium set.

I would go all titanium. If they can color titanium then that brown color that is used in the Awesomatix parts would be cool IMO. I have never seen colored titanium though so I doubt that is an option.

They cant do the gold titanium or match the spring steel color of some of the parts. Would be cool if they could do a dark gray alumn like most of the parts on the car but dont think they would do any just for a small run. Looks like I will just get some full titanium sets for those interested. Except for Cyrul....he's demanded purple! LOL Along with Purple KIY Kits!

Oleg, would you advice us to slightly file the two growths on the underside of AM44, the ones that maintain P10, to have more room for the FFG lateral movements?

I don't recommend to do this.
FFG lateral movement is restricted by lower P10 but not AM44.

Too much lateral movement for FFG is not good as:
1. There is no sense in this.
2. Front dogbones can pop out of spool outdrives.

Has anyone tried the ECS driveshafts in the rear of their car?

Yes, I run the car with ECS at the rear end for a long time, no problem with it. It seems the rear is a little bit smoother with them

Do you find it frees the car up and lets it rotate better at all? I was speaking with an xray driver on friday who suggested I tried this to help my car rotate a bit better.

Default Evo in 17.5 Touring Car

Second outing with the car and I am sitting 8th in the A going into the mains today. Pretty happy with the car and I'm enjoying learning how to tune it!
