I have the MM2, and SD2 installed, no FFG or RFG, but that doesn't really answer my question.

I'm just curious, as going belt drive removes the need for FFG and RFG development, as the belt has "slack" that the shaft drive doesn't, making the car "softer" when accelerating due to the torque transfers, which has already been discussed many times

Oleg said he would continue to develop both cars. Post 194 in the A800 thread.

What is the life expectancy of the original a700 dampers, will they perform as the day they were made forever or will they deteriorate?

They deteriorate over time, one will leak a little and then the feel corner to corner will not be the same. You can feel the difference if you remove them and rotate then in your hand. The d2 dampers are probaly the single best improvement to the car

Thanks sg, I know the d2's are the go, just trying to justify the cost of the upgrade, and avoid it if possible. But I will most probably get the d2 set.

Picked up an older A700L with the traverse mount (as opposed to longtitude) and figured I'd give that a spin for a laugh, took half the races to get the spur / pulley to stop loosening off, but this thing makes a racket even compared to the std set up on the Evo. That bevel gear mesh is smooth but LOUD (perhaps a tooth is chipped)

Ended due to an issue with the motor / esc but it's interesting how far ahead even this is compared to the TC6's etc

Default T.O.P. Racing Ballcups and Ballstuds

Morning Guys,

I picked up a like new EVO 2 and am trying to build up my spares/upgrade supplies. I seen the Awesomatix Wiki and the recommended spares there.

I was going to upgrade with the TOP Racing ballcups and studs and was wondering if you guys can point me in the right direction:

Awesomatix EP Touring Car (A700 Shaft Drive)-ballcups.jpg

There are two TOP ballcups that I know of shown here in the picture, do I need to use the longer or shorter ones?

Awesomatix EP Touring Car (A700 Shaft Drive)-5.3mm-ballstuds.jpg

Is the picture above the correct ballstuds I need? These replace the ballstuds correct?

These components replace only the upper inner link ballstuds ST-24 correct? Trying to figure out quantities required of each.

Last: Besides the awesomatix wiki spares listed, are there any other spares for the Evo 2 that are good to have around?
Thanks,
Aaron

If you have an EVO 2 the top upgrade really isn't necessary.. Tht upgrade was for the earlier cars .. The newer ball cups work fine spend your money on other spares
