Awesomatix A800 Touring Car new parts release

Awesomatix has just released a number of new parts for its A800 1:10 Electric Touring Car platform.   A new Flex Damper set provides an additional torsional flex of the car’s end where it is installed.  It also provides the adjustable damping of the chassis’s deformations caused by the torsional flex.  The damping level of the FD set is adjusted by choice of the silicone oil inside the damper and by choice of the pivoting hole on the arm of the FD rotor.  It is recommended for track conditions where the additional chassis’ flex is needed – usually it is the low traction bumpy tracks and when your available chassis is too stiff for given conditions.  The recommendation for initial fluid in FD Set is  50K…100K silicone oil.  Oil filling method is the same as for the A12 rear damper – put few drops of the oil on the bottom of AM282, keep AM282 upright for several minutes until all oil reaches the bottom of cavity, insert DT251 into AM282 slowly full way under pushing force and use a needle to provide the excessive oil outing.

Also new is the Forward Shifted Servoholder set (FSS).  This set also allows the ESC to be placed in front of the motor to reduce the car’s moment of inertia.  FSS also provides a bit more torsional flex for the front end of the car and a bit less weight.  Additionally the range for Ackermann is extended to 1,5mm instead of the 1,0mm from the std steering set.

New AM14H Steering Arms are a special stronger version of the AM14LS steering arms (same footprint) and recommended to use when racing on tracks with click-track / hard boards.  The AM180EVO2 SB Bellcrank for the Single Bellcrank Steering is an updated design of the EVO version and features an additional screw on top that secures the bearings in the alloy part and avoids a bearing shift at high force impacts. It is only compatible with ST118L-1.  Next we have the AT03R Spool Axle is a new spool design with reduced weight (only 2,6g.) and improved rigidity.

The C01B-RAF Flex Alloy Lower Deck is a 2.0mm 7075 T6 Flex Alloy Chassis for A800R car kit.  The Flex version has special cut outs to fit optional 5gram Tungsten weights.  Up to 18pcs of these weights can be placed in the chassis.  The weights should be installed via super thin double sided tape.

A new Flex Carbon Bumper is designed for use with P14-1-R Lower bumper.  This requires two pcs ST019 (not included) to connect to the AM278 Bulkheads.  The use of ST019 offers different front flex and removes possible tweak of the bulkheads in this area.

Finally a 38T Pulley Low Friction Pulley replaces P138LF and P138LFA.  More precise with a narrow profile it fits the A800 / A800X / A800MMX / A800R / A800FX Gear Diff. It does not fit for AT03B-X Spool.
