OK i have gone and done it now , i have just ordered the car. Well after how well i went with the EVO III & EVO III SE cars i carn't wait to get my hands on this car.

What type of toe blocks are they using on this car as the old blocks on the EVO III were not the same as the EVO IV as i will most likely need to order some ?

Starting to think if i get cut i will bleed tamiya blood.

That is an awesome spreadsheet. Thanks for posting up the link and tryhard's website for hosting it. Very very helpful.

Because from the pics...
the kit comes with
1 xA Block
2 D Blocks
1 E Block

IF the chart works perfectly well with the EVO V as with the EVO IV...
Looks like 2 setups (I would like to run) come with the EVO V:

0.5 deg toe out front
2.5 deg toe in rear

or

0 deg toe front
3 deg toe in rear

Maybe this weekend, I'll do an Arts and Crafts day at the track and put it together.

The steering looks wild on this car. I was looking at my evo 4 and the pics of the 5, what a difference. They should have just made all the metal parts blue on the car. The new heat sink looks sick. I liked the metal T support on my Evo 4 MS. This car should have came with that, it really cleans up the look of the carů

jhigga... finished building mine last night... YES the steering on the evoV is very nice. its very smooth and has ZERO slop. the heatsink has some long fins and is very very light.

the distance between the steering set up and the chassis is probably 1mm. maybe less? so i think the chance of a rock getting caught in there will be very rare.

the stock blocks for the EvoV are as follows: (if i remember correctly)

FF: D
FR: D

RF: XA
RR: E

ill confirm tonight when i get home.

Front 0 degree toe
Rear 3 degree toe in?

Dunno if this has been asked before but are the diff's the same size as the EVO IV i.e. will we be able to put a spool for the EVO IV into the EVO V ??

Front Toe Out: +0.5 deg
FF: E
FR: D

Rear Toe In: +2.5 deg
RF: XA
RR: D

When you have time hebiki, checkout which setup seems to run "better"

i know that is super subjective and depends on 9000 parameters... but i guess just sorta describe how u feel about each setup...

i have been told the 3 degree toe in in the rear feels better on this car... but that seems like a lot of toe in....
