Thank you Oleg for the information.

I look forward to hearing more about the new suspension you are working on.

Cheers,

Warren

For what car it would be more demanded? What do you think? Xray? Yokomo? Tamiya?
Hi,

Your DCJ are impressive! Very well designed, but it seems that the diameter of the articulation is a little bit more that traditional DCJ (like Arrowmax ones). I'm not sure it could work with more traditional cars, which have C-Hubs... I'm quite sure for instance, that they won't fit HB, Spec-R or Yokomo. Tamiya ones seem to be a little bit larger...

What is the maximum angle you can reach with such design?

Would work on a Schumacher though....

I say tweak the A700 to get a couple more tenths faster than the field and then perhaps release upgrades for other cars. Maintain some competitive advantage.
Couldn't agree more on this. Great POV.

I hope there'll be an exclusivity of parts within the Awesomatix system. Let them but the kit, try the system to experience the flowing graces of marvelous engineering feat of Oleg and co. time to time.


Am I sounding too selfish here? Maybe.
It's just the pride of owning and driving the BEST- the Lamborghini of TC cars. HA.

Cheers.

Aerodynamics to a new level it looks like. Have they released one yet?

Took the top deck off while running the Raceberry chassis. Thought it would be too much flex. As stated in this thread before. "I went from pretender to contender" definitely worked as traction was a little lower than usual yesterday.

In the description for the Raceberry chassis, it notes that it works best with the FFG. Is it not effective with the standard A700L kit?

some times you just gotta try something different!

if raced in modified, the chassis "might" flex too much via torque. the FFG really eliminates that. again -- this disclaimer is all about the raw power of mod motors...

The RB chassis is much softer so torque steer is more likely if you dont use the ffg

I may be wrong but I think Barry ran the raceberry chassis this asphalt season with a non ffg car and did pretty well in stock
