I ordered a A21S ballstuds, but don't have enough spare P03 cups to put on all the new studs. Nobody seems to have them in stock. So I either need to re-use some P03 cups, or wait to install A21S until I can get them.

edit: Found P03's at Michaels Hobby in Florida. Still curious if there is anyway to remove them without damaging.
I use the arrowmax turnbuckle/ball joint tool. I have been successful with it, but you have to line it up really well, or you will bend the caps. I had a couple break as well, so not perfect.

Thanks for the setup suggestion, Oleg. I did try to shift more weight to the front, but made the front lazy and showed signs of the front wheel lifting off. I discovered the issue and it was a simple fix. I switched from a Montech Racer to a ZooRacing DBX and it stopped.

Lovely car by the way. Only if the kits and parts were cheaper here in Japan, then you would have a strong market over here.

I will try the belt setup. I have mine set on the top, not sure what this affects.
Yes, use your radio to set your end points. Im glad the setup helped.

How does this chassis compare to the current Evo A and Evo AH chassis'?

Are these "bit more heavy" parts intended for all classes on US black carpet, or are they better suited for certain classes? Are the new parts providing differences in driving feel (stiffer) or durability only?


AM06WL-US / AM19-2US / C01B-XAH2-LA

The C01B-XAH2LA is a 2,0mm 7075 T6 alloy hard lower deck with additional holes for optional +8mm and +9mm longer arms.
The Cutouts/Design is changed to offer more response and better steering feeling combined with the high corner speeds of previous version chassis.

AM19-2US provide exact same geometry as AM19-2.
This new part is made from 3mm thick 7075 T6 high grade alloy, which mean it's 0,5mm thicker than AM19-2.
To keep same rollcenters on toplinks like with AM19-2 its needed to run 0,5mm less shims under ST24 Ball Studs.

AM06WL-US provide exact same sizes as AM06WL.
It has the same nimble for identification on the lower leg than AM06WL, but no flex cut out.

Info: Parts with "US" designation are especially designed for the use at tracks with hard boards/barriers.
During the different design compared to the standard parts, the "US" parts are more reliable at impacts.
Basically this optional parts are a bit more heavy than standard parts.

Not sure on the chassis.. we will have to try it. With the cutouts in the front I imagine there will be more steering, but My first reaction is I donít know if that is a good thing or not.

The other US parts are better suited for anyone who has had problems bending/breaking those parts. Our tracks tend to be quite harsh compared to euro tracks. Avid also released some heavy duty AM14LS recently as well for the same reason.

Anyone have any p04's? I managed to break one trying to install in a vigor carbon arm. It seems they don't sit right in that arm when tightened on the st03.

Anyone have any suggestions for using the vigor carbon arms? The st03 doesn't go down far enough in the arm for the p04 to clamp properly.

They clamp. You just dont have to tighten them up as far as the normal carbon arms. It allows for them to be used even after the arm hole wears out. You can tighten the P04 up a little more as they wear in where on the standard it doesnt have as much adjustment for wear. This is what some others have found on them.

Usually a good ploy, but this was courtesy of a back marker deciding to fight against being lapped.

It happens....
