Petit RC also has a good selection of setups for both asphalt and carpet.

A floating rear diff, fascinating. I would imagine this would be mostly beneficial for mod/open classes.

How did you know about this? Does Oleg post news updates somewhere when these big change parts come out?

I was told to use the Larry Fairtraic Snowbirds Feb 2014. So this is what I just put on my chassis. Any thoughts.

The RFG is a design a long time coming. It provides much more rear grip and chassis rear flex. Earlier prototypes have shown positive improvements for modified tc racing. This could also be a key part in asphalt racing. Only further testing will tell. Should be exciting...

Price discussion aside, Awesomatix lost me as a potential customer the day they introduced the FFG. In my very humble opinion, it turned thee sexiest chassis ever into an overcomplicated mess. And now this RFG thing... TBH, as much as I usually love M. Cyrul's designs, no matter how intricate and crazy-looking, I didn't even bother looking at the picture to see how it was supposed to work. That's how uninterested I have become, after being in LOVE with the first iterations of the A700.

I mean... COULD WE GET BELTS please? I'm not saying belts would be a sufficient condition for me to buy the car (price IS an issue, but let's not get into that right now) but it is most certainly a necessary condition.

It seems the suspension of the car IS an interesting, promising feature in many respects, from ease of maintenance and adjustability to super low CG. The shaft just isn't, IMHO.

Now with just a little more chassis flex, we can get rid of those pesky springs and dampers.

Lost you as a potential customer because the manufacturer offered you more performance options (which are optional by the way)?

I guess you can always get a cookie-cutter belt touring car. A dime a dozen...
