Hi guys,

With the summer season and asphalt racing coming here is a setup that I used at the Aussie Nats. It is essentially what Ryan Maker ran to win open modified with (beat none other than Ronald Volker) on his way to securing TQ and the win. In fact Awesomatix took out every TC class...so shall we say its a pretty competitive car! lol...
Give this setup a go and see what you think.
**Just be aware the front damper RHS/SRS is in arrangement II to access the softer aspect of the spring rate.

Got my greasy little hands on a second hand A800 recently. Not really a touring car guy, but one thing I can say is these cars arent nearly as daunting as they might first appear. Dont get wrapped up in the fact that they are different. Once you get your head around how they work, Id go as far as to say they are quite a bit more simple than your traditional car, and if initial results are anything to go by, in the right hands they are a total weapon.
First impressions are a easy, stable car to drive with plenty of steering (mid-high grip carpet), and easy to work on. Happy punter so far.

Looking forward to 2018 season. Now both running A800 cars 21.5 and 13.5 indoors and 13.5 and mod for outdoors. Both cars are really fast with support coming from Simon Noton. Really happy how responsive the A800's, set up is very straight forward n easy to change from indoors to outdoor set ups.

Awesomatix have just released their new A800X Evo kits which are a nice evolution from the current A800X platform.
More looking at refinements in the car and will have its first run in NZ in the next couple of weeks. The Evo kit has been showing faster pace again than previous versions already overseas.

Of further interest is a conversion kit you can now run on any of the A800 cars...a mid motor conversion MMCX2
Actually it is not mid motor. The motor is moved forward by some margin but still is located in a rearward position. The point of interest here is the mid-spur location and the equal length belts front / rear. In theory this layout should provide a better and smoother power delivery than the unequal length belts of the current traditional layout.
With the change in motor position it now gives the option of running the esc either in fornt (traditional placement) or behind the motor.
We have a couple of these conversions hitting the track also which have shown a huge increase in corner speed over the traditional layout.
