One question, probably you can check it with your cars.

When I lay my Evo on a flat ground and losen the front topdeck screws, my topdeck is 0,5mm to long. You can see it in the mounting holes.
Do you have the same problem?

I think the only thing you have to change is the damper position, so use 3 in front an 4 in the rear. That should be very similar to my normal EvoV damper position.
Use your steering as in the manual.

I changed the front suspension arms back to the Evo V ones, the rear ones fit perfect.

About the lenght of my topdeck. I placed the car on a flat ground.

When I mount the topdeck in the back:


The center mount is ok:


But the front mount is to long, not much, I think 0,5mm (I hope you can see it):

The Front Suspension fit, I will see when the 4x8mm screws come.

One question Jan: in Sheets discribes the inner shims with 2, 3 or something. But outside no discribtion? Standart is in the manuel: inner 3mm outside 1,5 mm for example.

How can I see in Sheets wich shims used outside?

You only need the inner shims describtion.
The suspension is build, that you have to use 4.5mm at all. So the outside is the difference between overall and inside.

If there is a little play, you can shim the outside.

The bottom plate flexes very easy so do not put it on the blocks like you have it. Take the wheels and front bumper off and then put onto a flat set-up board. Make sure no csk screws are sticking out of the bottom plate as well. Then everything will line up perfect

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

I had it on a MuchMore Tweak Master. And I used 4 Blocks under the Chassis because of the flex and the Screws.

So that shouldn't be the problem.

When I mount the topdeck, you can also see the gap under the front of the car.

Jan.. i had the same issue as you have
mine even comes with a black battery holder post - not blue
i don't have my car at the moment so i can't post pictures

i tried to install the tamiya upper deck (std evo5)
front and rear bulkhead holes aligned perfectly
the motor mount holes are the one offset - i think i read this before that they moved the motor mount (not sure though)
you can see the difference if you put both upper deck on top of each other
i'm not sure if you can call this a manufacturing defect

Yeah, they moved the motor mount to use EvoV and MS motor mount. So I can't use the original topdeck.

I think I will send a Mail to Exotek.
Probably I will design my own Chassis.

Where do you get the small main gears?

34mm gears it would have to be.

I use a Arrowmax 86T spur. Xenon fits also.
If you want a smaler gear, you should use Xenon, they have much smaler ones.

Be careful that the spur isn't to small. I bought a 78T, but I couldn' fit it.

Xenon VSS DD Spur Gear 64P

Would they fit? It goes from 78T to 96T, see at Tonisport.

For cars 1/12 scale.
