From Awesomatix, their new FBS set is a very unique design of a dynamic acting ball stud for the suspension. The O-Ring inside the capsuled steel housing allows a movement of the actual ball stud into every direction. Furthermore the O-Ring provides the needed damping effect. It can be beneficial in certain conditions, such as lower grip or on very special asphalt/carpet surfaces. Additionally, it reduces the peak load on the suspension link at crashes. Depending where the studs are installed, there are different effects. Basically, the Ball Studs can be used in every position of the car where normal ST24 is in use. Also new is a 5,5mm / 6,5mm / 7,0mm multi tool wrench which is made from high grade stainless steel with laser engraved logo. Highly recommended for the FBS (Flexible Ball Stud) assembly as well as for AT21/AT21ST-A installation on the chassis. Finally there are new high quality ball bearings with Si3N4 ceramic balls. The optimum to reduce the friction of your A800 drivetrain. Especially useful for any stock class competition where the lowest friction of the drivetrain will result in higher top speed and more consistent power for the runtime. Featuring a black rubber seal on one side and metal seal on the other side.
New from MR33 is this brass bulkhead weight set for the Awesomatix A800FX or FX Evo. The set includes 4 individual pieces which get screwed onto the front bulkhead, each pair with 1 screw. The set will line up directly under the differential and features 90g of overall weight. Compared to other, more forward mounted Bumper weights, it will create a little more aggressiveness to the front end of your Awesomatix A800FX or FX Evo front wheel drive car.
Awesomatix have introduced three new front end options for their A12 1/12th scale. The first two are optional steering blocks, standard axle position and a trailing version, with both being 1.4mm shorter in overall height, which provides additional 0,7mm space for droop/ride height settings. The final new item is an 5deg alloy steering block post which is 2,3g lighter each compared to the standard steel versions. Also steering block tubes are no longer needed when using these axles.
Avid have introduced this titanium ball stud kit for the Awesomatix A800. It includes 24 pieces to replace all the kit ball studs with titanium in order to minimise weight without sacrificing strength. This kit is designed to work with the kit ball cups.
Awesomatix have released a number of new option parts for their A12 as well as the A800MMX and A800FX. First up for the A12 is a -6mm wheelbase set, that provides a 6mm shorter wheelbase with AT1204 steering blocks and a 3mm shorter wheelbase with AT1204-ZT steering blocks. Each part is also available separately. Next up is a simple tuning option, a pair of C1.1 (Dark Brass) front springs. Next up for the Awesomatix double universal joints is this extra strong steel universal ring set, especially recommended for racing at tracks with hard boards. Provides reduced backlash with improved concentricity and precision as well as improved strength. For the A800FX is a new cap head screw, the length of which is optimal for the currently most popular FWD body shells. Finally for the MMX is the updated front bulkhead that features slightly modified end tips to further extend the clearance of the steering link at full lock under suspension up travel.
Some new items for the A800MMX from Awesomatix, the first of which is a new motor mount made from high grade 7075 T6 alloy. The new version features an increased slot for the ESC wire to allow an easier electronics installation and has the belt anti skip unit integrated. There is also the new 2.2mm carbon chassis that has are more narrow shape in the back for less chassis rub. Holes for the ‘short’ suspension arms have been removed as a result.
Awesomatix are very proud to announce the addition of Swedish RC ace and former World Champion David Ronnefalk to their Factory Team. David is well known all around the world for his amazing skills with a transmitter, not only in off road classes. He brings a lot of experience and great spirit with him to further extend the team lineup. They are looking forward to seeing him at the Euro Touring Series events as well as the World Championship. David had the following to say,
I have big things going on in my racing program for 2022 and beyond. My passion for RC in general is big and I’ve always liked to drive touring cars and now with my indoor facility I’ve had the chance to drive more onroad than ever before. It’s with lots of excitement I hereby announce that I will now be a part of the Awesomatix Factory Team. I’m looking forward to attend as many races possible including the World Championships. The ETS in December will be my first race with the car and I’ll be ready to battle.
Awesomatix have announced the addition of the multiple Italian national champion Gabriele Berselli to their factory team. He won the modified title in 2019 (ASI), 2020 (AMSCI) and 2021 (ACI) and will race at the ACI Italian championship as well as at the UISP champs and other important events in Italy and Europe. Gabry said ‘I want to thank Awesomatix for this great opportunity they have offered me, and I can’t wait to start this wonderful experience’.
