I found the mode 3 a good compromise and found mode 2 and mode 1 a little bit to dangerous for my driving skills...

Thanks mate, yes, it makes sense (I've just checked again MM2 diagrams)

I am a bit surprised the rear gearbox is now screwed only by 3 screws...I was told by top drivers mode 1 and 4 were almost never used (too flexy or too static).

Can't wait to try it, the car is even more beautiful with these new parts, love it definitely

Finally coherent again after a long week at snowbirds. My Evo 2 in 17.5 was plain awesome. Super fast all week, as well as easy to drive. I qualified 2nd, and finished 3rd after a couple mistakes in the main. In 13.5 I ran an Evo car and qualified 9th, but switched to an Evo 2 for the main with my 17.5 setup and was able to climb up to 4th in the main. Not too bad for my first trip to birds. I can't thank Hanulec enough for all the support, I know things arent perfect sometimes but he puts in a ton of effort to help us all be able to run the car, and im extremely grateful for what he does. On to the next one!

My congratulations, Mike!

It is very interesting to see your setups and also to know what style setups (US or EU) Jan Ratheisky and Alex Hagberg have used there finally.

Thank you to Mike Hanulec, Mike Gee, Mark Burt and the rest of the Awesomatix USA team on their help this weekend. One of my best performances to date!

Big thanks to Mike Hanulec for supporting Kyle and I during Snowbirds 2015 and for the past year and half. Thank you everyone on the team that was present for your help. We didn't quite get our cars and driving styles adjusted to the traction Snowbirds presented but there always next time.

I was impressed by the Awesomatix presence at the Snowbirds this year. Many thanks to the team guys who help the racers running the car at big events like this. It's much appreciated.

Hi - what is the FGX? I read something about a few drivers were running modified awesomatix cars at the Lrp race.

Just a thought, and maybe it's been asked before: Has anyone changed the 2x4x2 bushing on the dog bone to ball bearing?
