Awesomatix USA Caster Doodles and Tranny Tool

Awesomatix USA is proud to announce our latest custom parts for Awesomatix Touring Cars.

The Awesomatix USA Caster Doodles are new improved with a new, easier to read design. They are designed to be mounted on either the AM06 or AM06S to fine tune caster settings. In the picture the silver caster doodle is shown with a A700EXL, carbon fibre setup board and Hudy Gauges. All of these additional items are not included.


Our second tool - the Tranny Tool - has been updated with Freddy S├╝dhoff's favorite phrase -- MAXIMUM. The tranny tool is a carbon 10mm and 12mm wrench. They are a great alternative to the heavy 10mm and 12mm wrenches used to tighten the gear diff or spur gear nut

Roberto Falcon wins 17.5T at 2013 Minnreg Turkey Shoot



The 2013 Minnreg Turkey Shoot was held this past week by Mike Boylan and company in Florida.  It is a three day race featuring Oval racing Saturday and Road Racing on Sunday.  This is one of the few times over the year that Flordia road racers go indoors and compete on carpet.  In the largest and most competitive Road Racing class - 17.5T Rubber Touring - Roberto Falcon, in his first outing with the Awesomatix A700L USA Spec, hung tough through qualifying learning how to tune and setup his car while battling round after round for TQ in the class.  When qualifying was finished TJ Bradley was the Top Qualifier, with Mark Burt 2nd and Roberto Falcon 3rd.  All three drivers were separated by less than one second.  Prior round TQ, Cory Parsons, would end up 4th qualifier after the final rocket round.

In the A-final, TJ, Mark and Roberto (2nd white car) got out front and started to break away from the back.  Roberto got by Mark and started chasing TJ.  Half way through the race TJ piped it and the top 4 cars all collided.  Roberto was the first out of the pile with Cory in hot pursuit.  Roberto held up to one minute of pressure from Cory until he tapped out too allowing Roberto to cruse to the win, followed by Mark and finally Cory taking 3rd.   

Roberto summed up his first race experience by saying --
"Every adjustment I made to the car only got better .. I'm really impressed.  Well engineered to say the least"

Heading into Snowbirds Roberto should feel really good about his past weekend's performance.  Now all he needs is a t-shirt and a non-white paint job!  Congrats again Roberto!!

Awesomatix and Karl Hoffmeister Wins Halloween Classic 17.5 TC

The Halloween Classic @ Norcar at The Gate is a yearly race held in Cleveland, Ohio. This race has some of the tightest competition of the year -- so much so that this year's event sold out 2 months early! Team Awesomatix USA was well represented in all touring car classes.  Big thanks goes out to all of our team drivers and customers for representing the brand so well!


In the highly competitive 17.5T TC class, the Awesomatix A700L USA Spec took 5 of 10 qualifying spots including TQ'ing each of the 4 rounds of qualifying, and sweeping the top 3 positions in both qualifications and the A-main.  For the first three rounds Larry Fairtrace set and re-set TQ each round.  In the final round of qualifying Awesomatix drivers Larry Fairtrace, Mike Gee and Karl Hoffmeister were all battling for TQ against the competition.  At the end Karl took the TQ by 0.7 seconds over Larry and then Mike.  In the A-main, Karl, Larry and Mike all successfully got away from the pack and ran away into the distance allowing everyone else to battle for 4th.  Karl took home the win by 0.2 seconds from Mike with Larry 2 seconds behind in 3rd.  Mike Hanulec finished 6th, and Danny Jenkins 9th rounding out the rest of the Awesomatix drivers in the show.















Within the USVTA Class, John Choi TQ'd with his Awesomatix A700L USA Spec. John had a rough start, but recovered to finish 2nd while setting the fastest lap by 0.1s over the winner Myron Kinnard.

Finally, Mike Hanulec finished 3rd in 13.5T TC and Mike Gee finished 4th and Brent Kingforth 7th in Modified TC.

More track time and restock of ORCA and Gravity

The collective set of Awesomatix USA drivers have been running a ton of laps over the last week working on carpet setups.  I'm seeing lots of smiling A700 owners --- and more and more owners of the "other guys" cars looking on.  Should be a fantastic indoor carpet season!!

A re-stock of ORCA motors and 7000mah batteries just came in and a moving quickly.  The new Gravity LGC Carpet Traction Compound and the 2.5 million weight silicone are back in stock.

Setups and t-shirts 2.0

Hopefully everyone has been hitting the carpet by now.  The boys at Middle River Hobbies and 5280 Raceway have been working on a few setups already.  With a few weeks left heading up to the official start of the indoor season, the International Indoor Champs in Las Vegas, I know you'll see more and more setups available.  Although I know everyone cannot make it to IIC, the A700L USA Spec has been turning heads while taking TQs and Wins across North America.  Just last weekend Karl Hoffmeister took the TQ & Win at Middle River's IIC Warm Up race.

All Awesomatix runners will be able to get their hands on our new black t-shirts starting at IIC in just a few weeks --

Awesomatix Hard Bumper - gets your for this indoor season!

Just arrived -- the Awesomatix Hard Foam Bumper -- from our friends at John's BSR.  This is a must have part for any indoor racer.  Based upon the A700-P15 design, we tested various different compounds of foam to find the perfect option for the A700 to offer added protection without excess weight.  Weighting only 14 grams, this is the best bumper option available today!


Wednesday, August 14, 2013

Awesomatix wins three classes at ROAR Regionals last weekend!

Team Awesomatix USA competed in within two different ROAR Asphalt Regionals - Region 2 and Region 5 - sweeping the Modified Touring Classes, and winning Stock Touring in Region 2.

Region 5 Regional-

After rescheduling this race due to rain a few weeks ago, ROAR Region 5 took to the track again. The race was hosted by TSRCAR at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds in Cincinnati, Ohio. Team driver Monti Panzica reports --

"The day stared off with rain so I was not able to do any testing with FDR in 17.5T Touring. Dave Johnson showed (VBC driver & 2012 ROAR National Champ in 17.5T Asphalt) so I was sure he was going to be fast. I missed tq by 0.7s to Dave after three rounds of qualifying. I felt my car lacked a little punch out of the corners so I made a gearing change for the main.  In the main I was battling for the lead and took it from Dave but I was drilled a few times in the next corner.  After marshaling I came back to finish fourth and set fast lap in the main.

In Modified Touring I tq'd by 7 seconds and on my own lap, I was also able to bring home the win. Dave Johnson finished 2nd."



Monti raced a Awesomatix A700L USA SPEC in 17.5T and a A700EXL in Modified.  

Region 2 Regional Race Series 3 of 3-

The third leg of a three race Region 2 Asphalt Championship series finished up at John's Mobile RC/Middle River Hobbies.  The parking lot track had great traction, and rewarded drivers cutting super tight lines.  

In a deep field of 17.5T Touring cars, Larry Fairtrace came out to run a borrowed Awesomatix A700 USA SPEC car again after his previously TQ+Win a month ago at Jackson RC.  Four Awesomatix touring cars qualified for the A-main -- Larry TQ, Mike Gee 5th, Karl Hoffmeister 7th and Mike Hanulec 9th.  Larry proceeded to TQ and Win the first two A-mains uncontested.

Due to some unfortunate tie-breaking rules, Larry's dual TQ + Wins wasn't enough to give him the overall win for the series after not attending the first event.  I think everyone who attended the event knew who the real winner was!

The top 5 in 17.5T for the three race series was:

1. Mike Herald Jr.
2. Larry Fairtrace - Awesomatix A700L USA SPEC - 2x TQ & 2x Wins!
3. Danny Jenkins
4. Mike Gee - Awesomatix A700L USA SPEC
5. Mike Hanulec - Awesomatix A700L USA SPEC

In Modified Touring car, the battle for TQ was between Team Awesomatix driver Mike Gee and Team Associated driver Mike Haynes.  Haynes took the overall TQ, but after running triple A-mains Mike Gee took the overall win for the day!  This win, combined with his Jackson TQ + Win and Debbies TQ gave Gee the Modified series crown.



The top 3 in Modified TC for the tree race series was:

1. Mike Gee - Awesomatix A700
2. Mike Haynes
3. Robbie Dodge

Welcome Danny Jenkins

Awesomatix USA sponsored the 17.5T Touring class for this Region 2 series, and offered a sponsorship + Awesomatix kit to the overall winner.  Region 2 is known for their super fast stock racers, so helping bring another racer into the family is goal to build up the team.  The two top in the series turned down the sponsorship due to existing committments, but we are happy to welcome Danny Jenkins to the Awesomatix USA family of racers.  Danny is a well known regional and national competition who has made many stock A-mains in past national events.

Introducing the A700L USA SPEC

After a few months of testing and racing in North America, there was one hop-up part that nearly everyone was buying, the AM06S Short Hubs.  Awesomatix USA has worked with Oleg to bring a A700L USA SPEC 1/10th Electric Touring Car Kit that includes a complete set of AM06S instead of the AM06.  Hopefully racers will enjoy the $70 USD savings!

With this update, we've restocked a lot of parts too.  The inventory on all the various part numbers will increase over the weekend, but the major out of stock items have been updated in inventory.  More updates after today's local racing....

Awesomatix USA Sweep the ROAR Region 2 Championship Series Leg 2 @ Jackson RC

Race report from our team driver, Mike Gee---

"Awesomatix USA did work at the ROAR Region 2 series Leg 2 @ Jackson. in 17.5, A700's locked out the top 3 in qualifying (Larry, myself, FJ respectively). This is particularly impressive I think, as the 17.5 field was so stacked a former ROAR 17.5 TC champ missed the show. In mod, we had 3 cars again in the A, with myself TQ, Matt Abey 6th and FJ 7th.

FJ had a rough go in the 17.5 mains, but Larry won the 1st 2 of the triple A's easily, and I was 2nd. Mike Haynes completed the 17.5 podium.

I won the first 2 mains in mod, and FJ had better luck here, improving to 4th, and Abey holding steady at 6th. Mike Haynes and Robbie Dodge completed the mod podium.

FJs 17.5 setup is money, I drove his car after the mains. Very easy to drive. Both FJ and Larry ran that setup. My mod setup is the same way I'd like to think, I know Abey liked it."



Thanks to Mike Gee for the report and the awesome performance this past weekend. Also big thanks to my friend, Larry Fairtrace, for taking my "rent-a-ride" for a spin and showing me that he is 5 seconds faster with an identical car :). Congrats also go out to Jerry Perez and Joel Vautour for their strong B-main runs in 17.5T.

The final leg of the ROAR Region 2 Championship is Saturday, July 27th at John's Mobile RC/Middle River Hobbies.  The overall winner of the 17.5T touring car class will win an Awesomatix USA sponsorship and a A700 touring car!  Hope to see even more Awesomatix cars in the pits next month!!

Gravity RC Tire Traction and Silicone Diff Putty in stock!

Now available at Awesomatix USA are all of the tire traction and tuning accessories from Gravity RC to help dial in your touring car outdoors this summer.  Two traction compound options are now available

  1. LG1 - great as a tire cleaner, and first run tire additive
  2. LG2 - the perfect traction compound for 2+ run rubber tires tires on asphalt
Gravity RC traction compounds work great with and without applying tire warmers.  Use LG1 to clean your tires to remove oil and debris.   The apply a little bit of LG2 (just put on a few dabs) and then using your hands spread the traction compound around the tires completely.  Let sit for 20-30m until dry, and then dominate the competition.

Also available is the 2.5 million Silicone Diff Putty to make a consistent, and nearly locked front diff.  A stiff front diff is a great tuning alternative to a front spool.  Many races find it can increase corner speed, and improve overall drivability.

Spur Dampener In-stock

Awesomatix has just released a new set of option parts - Spur Dampener set - which is compatible with all A700 cars. This new system has damping from the o-rings which softens the reaction from the motor and makes the shaft transmission more similar to belt transmission when the throttle or the brake are applied. Lap times become more consistent and the car is easy to drive. In order to install this system you should increase the two current holes on the spur gear to 5mm.

Additionally, the AT12M spur nut can be used with the standard AT20 also instead of the stock AT12 nut. This allows you to pack one less tool (a 12mm wrench) in your toolbox, and instead using a 1.5mm hex driver to change spurs.

We have a limited supply of the Spur Dampener set available now, with more coming on the way!

17.5T Domination - Awesomatix TQ and Wins 17.5T at the 2013 Reedy On-Road Race of Champions


Team Awesomatix USA drivers dominated practice and qualifying in the 17.5T class by locking out the top 3 qualifying positions. The trio of Kyle Bergstrom, Austin Brumblay and Aaron Young where consistently faster than the competition turning laps in the low 16s range (same speed as 13.5T) while everyone else was in the mid/high 16s range.

Additionally, in the 13.5T class, Mark Dawson qualified 10th.

17.5T Race Summary

In A1, Kyle and Austin rocketed to a quick lead while Aaron ran into some trouble on the first lap. It was clear that Aaron had a dominant car as he drove back up through the field to eventually finish just behind Austin. The trio finish in qualifying order - Kyle, Austin and Aaron.

In A2, Kyle and Austin broke away from the pack again. At the 2m mark Kyle and Austin had a racing incident that eventually caused Kyle to drop out. Austin would win, and Aaron finished second.

In A3, the overall win was still up for grabs. The race quickly developed with a 3 car Awesomatix breakaway from the field. This time the trio of Kyle, Austin and Aaron was out front - pressuring one another to go faster and faster. Kyle ended up grabbing too much curb and fell out of the race. This left the battle to Austin and Aaron, and they finished in that order. Even after not finishing the last two races, Kyle still scored a 5th overall.

13.5T Race Summary

In A1, Dawson had a strong start, he quickly worked through traffic and managed to get his car into contention. He was placed as high as 3rd and finished 4th.

In A2, Dawson has less luck on the start and only finished 6th overall. He was happy with his setup changes and expecting much more in A3.

In A3, Dawson had some good battles on his way to 6th place finish. After losing a tie-breaker in in qual points, he finished 7th overall.

Race Report from the 2013 Emerald City Classic


The Seattle RC Racers had their one large event last weekend. Its called the Emerald City Classic. Typically it is a multi-day event but we couldn't rent anything for more than a day so we did it at our normal venue as a one day with single mains. 117 entries and regional talent from Oregon and Canada came to duke it out here in WA. There where 7 racers running the Awesomatix A700 touring cars.

In Stock Touring car A700's were qualified second (Mike Malkinson) and fourth (Frank Bartilozzi) in Stock TC. Mike Malkinson, in the Yellow car, finished 2nd in the A-main but unfortunately Frank pulled his car off in the main. Devin Patterson took the TQ + win.


In Modified Touring car, Jake Danilchik qualified 2nd behind the TQ Kody Knudtson and brought the his A700 home in 2nd less than 1 second behind Kody. Jake's car is the white and orange car in the video.




Thanks to Jake Danilchik for the write-up.

4th Stock Order

Today yet another stock order was placed.  This time around we will be bringing in not only the A700EXL but also the A700EX and A700L kits.  These two new kit styles have been added to Shop.AwesomatixUSA.com already and are available for back order.

Additionally, we are expanding our free shipping offer to all three kit styles.

Restock and introduction of back order for car ktis

30 new products where just added to Shop.AwesomatixUSA.com along with the re-stocking of popular items, like our car kits and dampers.

In order to help allow people to get their hands on an Awesomatix touring car we are introducing the ability to back order a car kit.  You will pay for your kit in full, and your order will ship when it is complete (i.e. you kit arrives).  The introduction of back orders will allow you to secure your car, and not have anyone "cut" the waiting line.

Modified Touring Car Class Sponsor for the 2013 ROAR Asphalt On-Road Nationals

Awesomatix USA does it again -- supporting the tracks that provide everyone a place to race!  We will be the Modified Touring Car class sponsor for the 2013 ROAR Asphalt On-Road Nationals being hosted May 2nd to 5th at Village Raceway in Royal Palm Beach, Florida.

The modified racing classes will draw special attention this summer as drivers strive to qualify for a spot to race in the 2014 IFMAR On-Road Worlds which is being offered to ROAR in North America.

Manufacturing issue with SPR01

We just received news from Oleg about a manufacturing problem on the SPR01 springs.  A batch of springs where made with the incorrect material.  The SPR01 spring should cut from a 0.8mm thick material.  Instead a recent batch was cut with the 0.7mm thick material -- the same stuff used to make the SPR01S spring.

We'll be digging through the Awesomatix USA inventory to prevent this problem from being spread further into the environment.  If any North America customer has the SPR01 springs that they suspect to be wrong please contact us.

Buy with confidence!

While on vacation we started to get some reports of car kits that where missing parts.  Needless to say this news wasn't the highlight of my vacation.  We have already been discussing the issues with Oleg and missing parts are in-flight as week speak.  Oleg is looking to resolve the packing problems, but Awesomatix USA has come up with a quality assurance program to resolve this problem.  This program covers the checking of over 120 parts numbers per kit!

This quality assurance program builds upon an initial idea from Awesomatix USA to seal kits prior to shipping to ensure the kit retained all of its correct parts.  Starting today we've taken this to the next level by performing an inventory of each kit, correcting any missing parts, and re-packing the parts bags within the kit.  Below is a picture of the first two kits that have made it through this new quality assurance process.  Shop.AwesomatixUSA.com inventory has also been updated to reflect the complete kits available for purchase.


A copy of the Quality Assurance Forms for Awesomatix USA Touring Cars can be found within our Downloads page.
