Thanks,
Even the manufacturer was out of stock
I'd recommend you back order at Awesomatix USA. This way you'll get it when they do arrive.

Going from a short arm setup to a long arm is there any way to get comparable rollcenters right now with front +1.5 I have standard balls on the chassis and 3mil up top with 1.75 on the hub . Going the the +9 what would be comparable or just leave it

No science yet... Maybe Oleg has some.

LA cars seem to like higher roll centers (0.5 to 1mm) more than std or even 1.5 arms

Calculations showed that our long arms need ~0,5mm less shims under lower inner AT21 balls to get the same roll center as it was with +1,5 arms. But our initial test of long arms on track showed that the car was better without this correction of the lower balls.
So it seems that our long arms are better at a bit higher roll centers than it was with normal arms.

I've been waiting to drive my Evo MMCX all winter, as I prefer asphalt. First time driving the car after switching from AE. This car feels so good. Any apprehension I had about going MM despite never running the standard layout, is gone. Took TQ, but unfortunately didn't finish A main due to the setscrew falling out of the pinon. Someone told me I need to shave the chassis to motor slightly to make sure the motor is flush? I have a feeling it was simply bad luck.

Hello, how many race days are people going between changing shock seals with the new high durability seals? Since the seals are sold in single packs it seems that they are not intended to be replaced super often but Iím curious as to otherís opinions.

Thanks

Depends on your motor and how you have it mounted. With a MC2 I either had to shim the motor out or clock it so the bottom endbell screw wouldn't hit the chassis cutout. You could grind the cutout longer for clearance if you wanted.

Motors like the Can-Am Stock motor have a flush endbell so it's not an issue...

Grind the screw head at a 45 degree angle and problem solved on the MC2. Or do what we do just take that screw out. Never had a problem ever doing it that way...

i've ran my car for almost 3 months now with club racing every friday, plus practice and 3 major races, they are still intact and not leaking. I think the new rubber is definitely doing a better job at holding oil in the shocks. I would say change them when you see one shock starting to leak.
