Awesomatix A800MMX 1/10th electric touring car kit
Awesomatix have introduced their new A800MMX 1/10th scale mid motor electric touring car kit. Further pushing the standard within the industry, Awesomatix created the MMCX mid-motor platform back in 2018, previously only available as conversion kit, featuring a farther forward centre pulley, equal length belts, and a longer suspension arm design. These features also characterise the new MMX full car kit and yield significant performance enhancements for all types of racing surfaces and grip levels. The primary improvements are the motor mount and top deck design, which offers fully symmetrical flex and a multitude of flex possibilities. By using special ST019 top deck screws to secure the top decks to the motor mount, there are several flex settings and combinations possible from very stiff to very soft, from aggressive to calm, and even from “fixed” to “moving” action. Additionally, the two piece design provides increased stability and longevity of the top deck itself. To further improve on the flex characteristics of the car, the designers created the new AM08-3 shock holder for the front end of the car. This shock holder is no longer connected to the bulkheads and allows more caster flex, and thus a more rigid damper position. The newly designed motor mount remains in the centre of the car, but a new design moves the motor 0.5mm further inwards to improve the left/right balance with today’s modern lightweight batteries. This also further reduces the polar moment of inertia. In addition to the new AT120XB 20T alloy pulley, Awesomatix added an advanced ball bearing anti-skip unit into the motor mount, directly under the pulley, to reduce the risk of belt skip. New for the MMX kit is an update to the pulley securing bolt that has been changed to M2.5 size and will use a 1.5mm hex driver.
Another new feature is the single bellcrank steering design that further improves the precision and feeling on the track. The new setup combines the same steering characteristic as the BSSX steering but with fewer parts, less play, and less weight. The steering lock angle can easily be limited by using the standard screw and shim on the lower side of the bellcrank without the need of any specially made limiter. Furthermore AM19-FX upper arm holders will also be included in the kit, which feature a stronger, more durable design. These holders also provide a larger angle between the top links which results in smoother suspension operation.
The new P63 damper vane pistons are a significant improvement to the suspension of the car. Utilising a new advanced shape and a special rubber material, this new piston is resistant to silicon oil. These new parts and designs mean rebuilds will be much less frequent. In addition, the kit now include ST69-00 precision screws and alloy AT119 screw holders as a standard kit part. The car will become available as MMX carbon fibre and MMXA aluminium chassis variant, the latter is visible in all images of the fully equipped car.
