You will have zero caster if you run standard c-hubs with 4 degrees kick down on the front. But your car will also push off power!

Ran my Evo5 for the second time at my local track yesterday

Due to the inconsistant track conditions (had some intermittent rain periods) I didn't really get to try to many different things, but I stll managed to go quicker.

My best race time was 1 second off my personal best with the MSX, and I did a fastest lap that was only 0.14 seconds off my best

So, it's taken me approx 2 meetings to get this car as quick as MSX, which took 4 months to reach these lap times

For stock or 19T this car is bloody quick

One thing I noticed, I can run a higher rollout with this car when compared to the MSX. I ran about 2mm higher rollout yesterday, still had more punch than what I ever had with the MSX, and the car was THE fastest thing in a straight line!

Did I mention I really like this car

Good to hear your positive reports on the car. I'm really looking forward to give mine a run. In fact I was hoping to try my car tonight but Sydney weather is not on my side... Just curious about how you're shimming the gearboxes. I've heard a lot of conflicting views with some people finding the factory recommendation inadequate. How have you shimmed your gearboxes?

I shimmed it as per the manual (which felt a bit off), ran it in a bit (at low volts) and then pulled the whole thing apart again and re-shimmed it.

Most likely, everyones settings will be slightly different, but with the car shimmed as per the manual, I found that my car had too much end-float in the input shafts.

Shimming is always something worth taking your time with too, especially with a shaft car. You will notice the difference heaps - I know I did with my Evo4 when I had it.

My experience is that the manual settings regarding the shims are prefect. I race my Evo 5 for a month now (with a 7x1 turn motor) and didn't have any problem with it.

Only dislike on the car is the gearbox covers. They don't fully seal the gearbox, sand and dust is getting in. The Evo 4 covers are much better but don't fit the Evo 5

@C van der Hagen

Did you drive the evo V at the NK modified class? Or haven't you used it in the competition yet.

If so, how did it drive on the HFCC track?

Alwin.

I noticed no torque steer.
I raced 1/8 gas track (baanbrekers, rucphen)
Gear ratio was 100/33

I didn't race the NK race @ HFCC, because of rain. Maybe i'll use the evo 5 this weekend @ AMCA.

what's that? 100T spur + 33T pinnion? so 7,38 final ratio?

i am trying to know the lowest gear ratio you can get on a evo 5 with no mods, so what do you think is the bigger sput gear you can put on a evo 5? 100T? also which diametric pitch are you using?

for me will be easy to dremel the upper deck in order to host a bigger spur, but the problem will be the spur showing up under the lower deck so it will be damaged by the ground ... if anyone can take pictures of the 96T (or bettter other big spur) showing how close is it to the low deck top ... that will help a lot

i dont want to spend my money in a evo 5 before knowing if i will be able to run my novak 5.5 which needs final ratios from 8 to 10

thanks in advance

You can get around 8.6 ratios, definitely a 9 is out of the question without mods.
