Don't worry... It will take long till we gonna release any of the new parts. We are still testing, developing and changing parts. Specially the C01-AL-S is really really good and will work with all new parts as well.
Most brands offer a alloy and a carbon chassis. It is an nice setup option.

We can not show any pictures yet.

Try not to get too carried away with the new parts discussions. Unless your a mod tc world's contender... These changes will have minimal impact (and I'm do what ever I can to ensure that..).

The Evo kit is lethal in spec racing classes currently ...

Did You try swapping the rear dampers like hanulec did if yes what is you're opinion?

The EVO kit with a stiff Alu chassis and top deck is lethal in spec racing on carpet. The EVO with carbon or soft Alu chassis and no top deck on asphalt.

Colin - what is your driving style? Lots of push brake - slow in, fast out? Drag brake -+ throwing the car into the corner??

Hello Oleg and all,
yesterday I received my ordered ball diff set and wanted to race it this weekend on our low grip asphalt track with my evo.
Putting the well engineered parts together I recognized that unfortunately the DT06 are missing and they will not be available for the race 

Oleg can you or anyone help: Is there a possibility to use some standard part every hobbyist has in his toolshop…maybe an additional O-ring, a c-clip or a lock ring or just a shim?
What might work good as containment?

Thank you very much in advance for your help and suggestions!

DT06 sizes: 3,7x6,6x0,8mm. Material: hard plastic ( we are using Delrin).
Every DT06 has the incision made by knife.

I like a pretty aggressive car, throw the car in on the brakes and then fast out

I would stay away from my setups then. Just an FYI. They probably wont fit that driving style

Hi,

Damper setting question if I move the damper to the outer of the chassis bigger gap A setting an I adjust the B setting to keep the same stiffness rate is that the same if I lean the shocks on an convetionnal car more inwards or am I totaly wrong?

If you want to do a "shock angle change", I would make only a small adjustment to the A gap, smaller for leaned in, bigger for stood up. The change you are describing would be like a shock oil change.
