I'm looking for another nice condition A700. I'd prefer an aluminum chassis Evo but open to anything.

Please PM me if you are interested in selling one.

Hi there,

question about rear bump steer: is there any influence by having the rear toe-in turnbuckle angled forward at bulkhead side (and so rearward at hub side)?
That's pretty tricky to explain; I mean: if I put shims @ bulkhead side where the rear toe-in turnbuckle is attached (see step 18 in the A700 Evo II manual); this will induce a forward angle of the turnbuckle; what will be the potential effect?

Thanks in advance for helping me!

Regards,
G-rem

I have a front one way for the A700. I will not run it. If anyone is interested in it, shoot me a PM.

I shimmed mine out to eliminate interference and there are no negative side effects.

Technically it would change the effective overall length of the turnbuckle ever so slightly but you can easily adjust for that in the shims you place on the outboard side.

2 weeks late
I am in the middle of some testing and have the car almost disassembled when waiting for parts so I take the opportunity to make some checkup. I was also curious why John Doukakis on his blog have a picture of his 800 with AM14LS arms at the rear...

With the car on a setup station without shocks attached I played between the car at full compression and at 5mm height. Chassis always parallel from the working table. I didn't play with induced rake and roll because it was too difficult to replicate...
I was assuming the less forward/backward angle the turnbuckle and longer the arms the more progressive the action.
I was wrong or I was not able mesure it correctly lol
What I found is that the action is comparable on both side one with a AM23-1 and the other with a AM14-1. I was able to shim the ball studs to have the same toe at full compression and at 5mm. The test was done on a car with RFG that give a big amount of rearward angle when using AM23-1.

But...I may have a clue...the only thing that may have a "mesurable" effect on the bench and at the track is the rigidity of the assembly when the links are straight. Probably in the same order of subtil effect that can give AM19-4 at the back.

Enough bench racing I will try on the track in a week or two to see if I feel a difference and will report back.

See you!
Alexandre

Thanks a lot for a such detailed iteration! Can't wait to hear from your track test

I have always run the front steering arms on the rear of my A700 cars, for extra strength and less slop (a given amount of play in the ball cup translates to less toe change with the longer arm). Bump steer is easily set to zero (or whatever you might desire) with shims to change the angle of the arm.

I initially got some strange looks from other Awesomatix drivers, but over the years I's also heard of others doing the same.

Hey people,

Does anyone have a favourite set up they could recommend me?

The track I'm racing at for the next little while is a 36'x100', sweeper onto the straight and a sweeper off the straight, technical in the infield. Its on Crc Black Carpet

One10 Raceway, it pops up on google, if anyone would like to see the exact layout.
