Awesomatix will soon release a new version of the A700 4WD touring car called the A700L Evo. The updated kit will make use of the new Floating Front Gearbox design that lets the front gearbox float inside the outer frame during acceleration or deceleration. The gearbox can move left and right and rotate on some angle with the main goal of this setups is to prevent the chassis flex from affecting the shaft transmission as it can happen with conventional layouts. The new design eliminates this problem by using a lightweight carbon tube bar that withstands the transmission’s torque keeping the main chassis free from drivetrain influences. With the new design drivers are also able to run the car without any top deck by simply using the carbon rod. Freddy Südhoff and Viljami Kutvonen already used this setup at the recent Touring Car Euros in Portugal with good results by placing the cars in the A-main. Other benefits of the new configuration is a higher corner speed and less tyre wear especially on asphalt tracks. The new kit will be released at the end of 2013 or beginning of 2014.
