That's the side you want facing the rear of the car to move the weight forward. That would have saved a good 20 grams of wires high on top of the battery that can be moved down to chassis level to lower the CG...That's about 0.2sec per lap right there on top of the other 0.4sec per lap he could have gained by running a 2.5t , 3.5t or brushed Fantom motor.....lol...

I don't know if you've noticed, but the motor is quite a bit further forward than normal. And that length of wire is not an additional 20g, more like 5g.

I really doubt that two 137mm long pieces of 12gauge wire only weigh 5grams....

I recently got two A800X cars for asphalt 17.5 and 21.5. I need help on understanding the effect of different settings other than the standard camber, caster, toe, height, droop, damper and spring rate. There are a bunch of shim settings on the setup sheets that I need to understand it’s effect. Can someone help with a brief explanation or point me in the right direction. I’m currently copying the settings from someone else but it doesn’t really help since We all drive differently.

My year and a half old XA chassis is slightly tweaked. Was going to get an XAH because I just run 17.5TC on black carpet. Debating getting the XA-LA now...

I don't really know where to find the officiel information (news) about the car, the website is almost dead since 5 years, awesomatix usa look like a shop / forum but do not publish all the news...
