Default New chassis and brace

Hi guys, quick question.

I'm replacing some parts on my EVO to make it an EVO2.

The new chassis and brace, are people using any type of glue or adhesive between the brace and chassis. Like. JB weld product.

Thanks Greg G

No, I use the number of screws in the brace to adjust the flexibility for high or really low traction conditions. I'd lose that option if the AM33-5 brace was glued to the chassis.

Can anyone confirm if there is a revA and revB of the AT04-2 drive shaft?

Anyone have a good EVO2 setup sheet for VERY low traction carpet with the std springs on Sorex 28s?

Hi guys,

I'm about to pick up my EVO II kit tomorrow. This is my first A700 and I will be running modified on a medium sized asphalt track.

Which spare parts I should have ready in my pit bag, and which parts need to be replaced with stronger modified parts?


Thank you for your time.

Is anyone of you Awesomatix owners, driving an LRP works flow 17.5 boosted ?

I have en EVO and have tried to get a surgestion to an stating setup in the LRP thread, but it seems that it is dead.

Therefore I wondered if any in here uses the esc, ang has experiance with the V5.4 firmware.

If yes, could you post your FDR, and settings, so I can mayby work from there and find my own settings.

Sorry again for chashing this thread with my setup question.

Scroll down to the recommended spares, you may need to update the part numbers to newer revisions but the list is still good.

Where else can you buy Awesomatix parts in the states besides Awesomatix Shop USA and Apex RC?

I've been having to order things from both but things go out of stock often.

You can order direct from Oleg. http://www.awesomatix.com/

Every order thru Oleg has taken about 1 week. I live in the Seattle area.
