Sounds great DS, congrats! I couldn't find an editable version of the setup sheet either so I created my own, maybe it will be useful to you:

Ok, great.
However if I save the file only the text stays, the checked boxes like shock position disappears after I've saved it. I use Preview under Mac OSX, normally this works brilliantly.

Hi Tuan,

First of all, great choice you made, you aren't going to regret it.

With what you should buy for it are you talking about spares, or optionals?.

Basically there are only two optionals available: the kevlar pulley set and the front wire type anti roll bar. The kevlar pulleys are a good thing to buy once the original pulleys have worn out, the kevlar pulleys really do make a difference, it makes for an even smoother drivetrain and they don't attract any dirt.
I really like the front wire type ARB, no more endless tweaking of the ARB, for me it also provided better braking.

All the other stuff(TiNi shock shafts, 2010 carbon, brass tray, mono ring shocks etc.) is included in the 2010 kit.

Then there are some small setup options like the 3 hole shock pistons, carbon lower rear shock mount and gear ratios.
The different ackermann inserts are supplied with the kit.

If you have a spare NT1 tank, diffs, belts, pivotballs or uprights you can keep those as those parts are a direct fit.

Can't comment yet on any weakpoints, but to me the car matches or even excels the quality of the NT1 so you won't need a lot of spares.

Today I did some testing at my hometrack. I decided to start with the same setup I ended with from the Apeldoorn track.
After the initial gearbox and engine tuning the car was already very fast with plenty of steering but still stable enough to put in consistent laptimes.

So I decided to use a new set of tyres and really test how fast the car was with the same setup from the other track. Within a couple of laps I was close to my personal best, and 0.3 tenths faster as the times I've been running lately with the NT1.
And this on a track which had low traction and a lot of leaves and dirt on the track.

After I burned through the first set of tires I put a second new set on the car and added one mm of caster. The car was again faster but tricky, but with some fine tuning I think I can get the rear more planted while leaving the caster as it is.

To give an indication about how good the car was, during our round of the nationals at the track, the fastest time was a 16.21, today I did a 16.23 on a track which had 5 other cars running.

I couldn't get the standard setup sheet to work, so I made my own.
I think it has everything you would want included, if someone has some improvements let me know.

Here the pdf and .doc version:

Default Apeldoorn AMCA Setup

Here is the setup for the Apeldoorn Amca track.
Car was good, but still a little bit understeering, could have dialed this out with adding some caster.

Picture of the track:

Default Mach Heemstede

And this is the setup for Mach Heemstede.

As you can see the setup is pretty much identical to the Amca setup, only added one mm of caster.
This pretty much proves to me that this really is a great car, because both tracks are pretty different handeling wise.

Team Epic is the US distributer, so you can get it directly off them or contact a hobby shop which is able to order at Team Epic.
