The new manual came out at the perfect time for me. I started the build yesterday and made nice progress. So far it's been a very enjoyable and rewarding build, it's just a cool car.
Thanks to Jerry P for getting me through some Diff troubles, easy fix. Unfortunately I think I'm going to rebuild it tonight anyway, the manual calls for 7000wt oil and after seeing a couple setup sheets it seems people are running 2000-4000 range.

the new manual does make everything else easier. still happy we got cars before the manual came out. now everything is just a bit more civilized, but still fun.

Has anyone tried running the SD2 spur damper without a heavier shaft AT04-2? The larger shaft is giving me some clearance issues but I would like to keep the damper with the factory standard shaft AT04.

SD2 and AT04-2 are meant to go together. the thought is the AT04-2 being stiff will act like a stiff belt/high tension.

I've been starting to run the cars w/o the AM49/AM49-3 brace (fixes clearance issues, and drops a little weight). My cars always have a top deck...

I have not been running the center support for a while. All my cars run topdecks also.

They are talking about not using the ffg support, not the driveshaft support. Although you can run without the driveshaft support for spec classes like 17.5

if using the thin (AT04) drive shaft -- you can get away without the support in 17.5 or slower.

the new AT04-2 thick shaft doesn't need the support.

Hi Ramil-

You've always asked for an alloy chassis car. The A700 Evo II is that car.

If you want a carbon chassis car -- get the A700 Evo IIC.

I'm going to start with an alloy chassis car in stock at Jackson -- we will see how it goes.

Thanx Mike, I'm still clueless on alloy chassis specially for outdoor use.
Cant wait to know which chassis ( alloy or carbon ) is best suited
for Mod TC on asphalt. See you at Jackson soon.

we ran the A700-C01AL-S chassis in mod tc at the end of the summer. it was so good. the A700 Evo 2 comes with the A700-C01AL-S2 --- which is very similar, just skinnier, than last year's alloy chassis.

we had the A700-AM30-5 brace installed (short than what Evo 2 has -- and what is included in Evo 2C).

i believe Mike Gee is running at John's Mobile today -- one of each chassis. hopefully he can report back.

Thanks to Arno for editable setup sheet for Evo II/IIC!

Suspension rate for S springs was corrected already in this setup sheet version.

Got my evo2 almost done. Just have to clean up some wiring and paint a body. Need some wheel nuts as well, first car I've ever built that doesn't come with them. Build was fantastic, every piece is machined perfectly. Only minor complaint would be a lack of some labeling on the hardware, namely the ball studs. With a little help I realized there were 4.75 and 4.95 studs, only real mistake I made. Thank you to Hanulec and Jerry P for the help throughout the process.

Hey Guys,

last week Team Awesomatix Europe attend at the ETS Rnd.3 in Riccione Italy.
We tested and learned a lot with the new Car on Asphalt during the weekend.

Finaly we found a very good setup which I was able to finish 6th overall in ProStock class.
Viljami had bad luck this weekend in Modified but we are looking forward to ETS Rnd.4 in Mattsee Austria in 2 weeks.

Here you can find my final setup:
