I had a chance to run the EVO2 IIC car with the RFG in Mod and Stock. The car seems to have more rear traction mid corner and corner exit! The balance is near perfect now.

I ran the stock car with 48 pitch and no SD[x] without problems. Generally I would strip a gear on a hard hit, but this wasn't the case with the RFG. The Mod car was run with SD2.

If you want to view my mod run have a look here at 1:43.

Nice run Wayne, any chance you can post your setup as well?

Can he do the current arm? The C04M? How much for them?


Also, am I able to use the AT12M without the o'ring?

I use them on my car, They're very well made and I haven't broken one yet. They also make adjusting the droop easy as the screws are in the arms.

Does anyone use the alloy chassis on their cars? I'm thinking of buy one as I like running my car with a stiff chassis

I'm currently running the alloy chassis, the good thing with the awesomatix is you can alter the stiffness with how many screws you use in the stiffener.

The current alloy chassis is not stiffer.

I believe it will be uploaded to the awesomatixusa.com site in the near future. I don't have a way to upload the file and RCtech attachment limit is too low.

Looking at the alloy chassis myself. On the arms, I decided to go with normal style for now, as I don't know if any of the others are usable, and I'm working on the usual teething issues you get running a new chassis (particularly one bought 2nd hand that ran carpet), I think some of the issues may have been due to pre-existing damage I hadn't noted.

So what's the advantage of the alloy chassis?

I doubt it would make much difference to the centre of gravity as it already lower than a regular touring car.

Also how much heavier is the alloy chassis and brace than the carbon one?

Alloy has different flex characteristics compared to the carbon weaves.

And lowering the CG is really important. The awesomatix has an advantage over other cars with regard to this but why not gain an even further advantage by lowering the CG by .5 mm further by using the thin alloy version over the carbon version. At the big high grip races on carpet I've benefitted from not traction rolling or getting "tippy" while other cars struggle. That .5 mm across the entire chassis isn't trivial, imho.
