Thanks, AMX USA didn't have what I needed so I ordered from Awesomatix overseas. Ordered last week, requested EMS, and they just shipped it out. Hope I get the parts in time. I'll get in touch with Hanulec next week.

Not needed.
Recommend 48p-- use 72 or 78t 48p spur (cannot remember the size..)

Does anyone have an A700L carbon chassis or better yet a raceberry chassis in good condition that I can buy? PM me if you have one. Thanks.

Ok we need to blow the cobwebs off this thread, getting my A700 ready for state titles this weekend, as it's proven to be 0.5 second a lap quicker than my A800 (same set up / electrics)

Hey Nexxus,

What classes do you run your cars in?

I have an A700 which ive been running in 21.5 blinky but thinking about using it for 13.5 blinky next year (seeing as the rules have changed & no more boost ) and I'll try my 800 in modified.

Cheers,

That fan mount is huge... A little bigger picture of the whole car could reveal lots of weight shaving tricks... Battery is top of the line in performance though... Good luck at the state title race...
I can't wait to get back at the track ...Cheers...

It looks like a 40mm fan as per Australian rules.

Didn't they ban you from the TC4 forum for that crap......

Now for some Awesomatix questions. I have a evo 2 that I have sitting on the shelf for almost a year, and I am thinking of using it in USGT, any suggestions for setup with USGT tires on the new CRC Black carpet?

No ban on tc4 track testing results... Bench racing, not allowed...lol....
Testing starts in November, but I am happy to report that my A700 2.5t boosted shows alot of promise in the mod world: acceleration is unbelievable(way better than a 4.5t)...
