I'm running 64Dp also (RW Spurs and pinions), and running up to 19t with the car. I honestly don't crash heavily very often (although a couple I'll put down to myself). More often it happens when being hit by others (or mauled as I like to term it) at a club meet with 27t.

I appreciate it's one of thoose things that does happen... but it's occuring a little too often for my tastes at the moment.

I'm not saying it'll be the same for everyone (by the sounds of it, you haven't had that experience), much in the same way munching front bevel gears seems to affect some rather than others (current count... errr 0, still on the one that came with the kit )

Default Anyone running with a silver can?

So, I switched motors between my TB-02 and my Evo5. It was immediately obvious the superior nature of the Evo5 chassis and drivetrain. Anyone running a silver can class with their Evo5? Any particulars you could share? Do you like it?

Hi Blueman,

I have tried the Pro-Mod on my 415. Is good for bumpy tracks, as the cantilever effect means that you can run the shocks very soft (4-5lb rear springs, and 20-25wt oil), without effecting the roll of the car.

Some pics of the setup here.





HiH

Thanks for your reply Tryhard.

Do you think i should give it a try ?

By the way. At my last race on carpet i have tested your setup you have posted here.
It worked very well. The only difference was that i also run swaybars. (medium in front, and soft rear).

On this track was so much grip that the car rolledover somtimes.

It is the homebase of the austrian teamdriver Hupo Hönigl. Marc Reinard was also here the last week.

So my little doughter calls for me.

Personally, if your just running Carpet, I'd stick with the std rear end for the car. Addmitadly I have never tried the Pro-Mod indoors (it has something to do with a fear of bending the lovely alloy wishbones ).

Sounds like you race in some illustrious company there, glad you like the setup, I'm still working on little bits of it. Unfortuantly haven't had a lot of time to race over the christmas/new year period, so nothing new to report yet.

Cheers
Ed

I just got a use Evo V, yesterday, and I'm so glad I decided to get one. I currently have an Evo IV with tons of hop ups. After reading this thread, it's great to know that a lot of my parts can be used on the Evo V. Last night, I started transferring my titanium screws and suspension parts. I guess my Evo IV will end up being sold basically stock. Although comparing the quality between the two, I think the aluminum parts on the IV seems to be of a better grade than on the V. Just working on the car gives you this impression that this is one great performing car. I'm basically giving up my Pro4 & EvoIV for the Evo V.

As for the DJ Rear Pro Module, I have one, too. Haven't noticed much of a difference between that and the stock rear end. As far as bending the arms, I do worry about that along with my titanium axles, but hey...you bought it and might as well make use of it. Otherwise my whole car would end up a shelf queen.

I am also very happy with the car.

Today i made it ready for my third race next weekend.

I washed the bearings out the second time, and olied them with "Brunox Speed Lube". Now the drivetrain spins so free, that i turned the wheels for i think an hour again and again and again.... great.

The evo 4 was (is)also a good car, but the cornering of the evo 5 is much better.

For the classes i race, is this car the best choice (i think). 23T and 17T.

Ah, er, ah, well, ah, yes actually - SIR. The Evo5 is so much more responsive than my TB-02. So, I put the Silver can in it.

Tires: sorex 32
Springs: yellow
Ftoe: +2 degree
Rtoe: -2 degree
F&Rcamber: -2 degree
Fshockmount: 3 holes in from outside
Rshockmount: 4 holes in from outside

Odd, my front ride height is higher than the rear. Could that be it?

That could be part of it, what I would suggest ir standing the rear shocks, up, and also droop may be a big factor in it. it you have to little or too much on one end ot the other.
What part of the track do you feel you need more steering?

Just a ? about the evo V,
Does the chassis or batterie strap (if it has one that is)
need to be dremeled/filed away to fit ib4200 side by side packs
or do they fit straight in no worries
or is their a kit available to make them fit?


I was thinking about getting an evo V

I have had no problem with my EVO5 and my IB4200's, I do not use the Tamiya strap, I use Tape
