I feel like something might be wrong, tons of people at awesomatix 180 raceway runs a awesomatix weekly and all of them finish a race even when flipping out of the track into the pits. Bad luck I guess?

Great to know....I'll try getting wheel nuts that cover all the threads. Thanks

The newest kits have shorter axles. I have noticed my EVO kit has no threads extending past the kit provided nut.

the new kits include the wheel nut, and it's a deep nut. I do not the think they shortened the axle, I like to not have the nut or axle stick out fron the edge of the tire so I like to use a shorter nut and them shave some off the axle end.

Anyone else using the p09x (progressive action on springs)? I have a question...the instructions on Petit RC State the Following:

"Adjusting of the PSS screws (PSS Ride Height).
1. Important! We recommend to try PSS settings on the front suspension of the car first.
2. The using of the PSS settings on the rear suspension was still justified only for the narrow range of track conditions.
3. Put car Race Ready on a Flat Board. Turnout RHS screw until it doesnít have any contact to the spring anymore.
4. Turn in PSS Screw equally on left and right site to setup a Ride Height from 4.0mm Ė 5.0mm.
This height is the PSS Ride Height which is responsible for the point of progression start at suspension up travel. As starting point we recommend an PSS Ride height from 4.0mm."

My questions are:
Where is the hook distance (Assuming Layout 1) when first setting up PSS Ride Height of 4.0mm (recommended starting point)? - It has to be at least 1.5mm to get the screwdriver in there for initial set.

It is kind of a pain to setup. Slide the hook all the way out, then adjust the set screw down. Move the hook back to your normal position to measure pss height. Rinse and repeat until you get the correct height, then adjust ride height screw to your race height. Also I had to use an l wrench instead of a driver because the tip on the driver wasn't long enough.

cut the am17 so you can access the screw and not have to slide it

Interesting....so what if during practice I decided to move hook position. That means the I might have to readjust initial pss?

i wouldnt say they are hard to set up but they do take a little time ,is not like you can just show up and run it all day with out throwing it on the set up station if you tap alot well maybe is not the car for you.

When I'm running PSS I'll always double check it whenever I change the hook position. It's really not that bad. Just back off the RHS 3 turns and set PSS. Then tighten back the RHS 3 turns and set ride height.
