Does the Orion 4800 Platinum lipo fit in this car?? If so, do you secure it with servo tape and strapping tape? Do you need to add weight in order to balance the car with the lighter battery???

Call Orion. They have test-Fitted their Li-Po Packs in just about every kit.
I believe there`s a list of kits those battery packs fit in on the Orion site.....?

fitting lipos into a shaft car is usually no problem. It's the belt cars that have trouble. The 4800 will fit in the EVO V

Hi Guy,

I'm afraid I've only run the Evo on the rug, so don't have an outdoor setup.
Having said that, I would have it simialr to that setup, except for no shims under the blocks, Blue (F) and yellow (R) springs with yellow roll bars, 40wt (F) and 35wt (R) oil in the shocks (with 3 hole pistons, and foam in top). Maybe some more rear toe-in if using a Mod or 19t motor, depending on setup.

Anyway, ran the Evo on carpet again this week, at a much tighter and lower grip track. Started out with the same setup as posted above, but changed it during the day. 2 things occured, detailed as follows.

1) it was taking well over two minutes to get the tires heated up, which ment I really struggled in the first few minutes, but when up to temp I was on the pace. Solved this by changing the spacers under the suspension block to 0.5mm (rather than 1mm), allowing the car to roll more. Worked a treat in the finals, and was strong for the full 5mins.

2) had a slightly oversteery balance all day, especially going into tight turns. I have a feeling I can solve this by running XA/D (2.5deg toe-in) on the rear.

Basically, was changing the setup from one that was suited to a large, high speed and grippy track to a smaller, tighter and less grippy one. Pretty happy with that setup I now, I can drive it fast and consistently, just a little fine tuning required.

Cheers
Ed

found a problem yesterday

the rear uprights was compressing he bearings SO MUCH , so the wheels didnt spin freely, whith universals removed and trying to spin the wheel by hand , i can feel the BIG steps inside the ballbearings instead of soft and free movement, i dont know how this happened, i dont remember to have this issue when i built the car ...

to remove the bearing was a nightmare as they was so compressed, and they got lots of griding after runing with such stress, i had to do this to uprights



Dr Dremel made some room so the bearings can fit without compresion , wheels run free now...

anyone having same thing?

Check the hub for straightness.... I've had it before, and it turns out the hub was bent, compressing the outer edge of the bearing. It should be easy to spot, as the L section won't be at a 90 angle to the upright section.

it doesnt look bent, and you have to mind both rear uprights had exactly the same issue , looks like they shrunk a little bit ....... is this possible? i mean , aluminium should not shrink , right?

Hey TryHard; glad to see you`re having fun running on Carpet. I`ve tried it Once and I didn`t like it.....Too Tight.....Too many Crashes.....Ha Ha!
I won`t go back to Carpet Racing.

I don`t use Sway Bars on any of My R.C. Cars. I just try to get the right Shock Set-Up without them(Spring and/or Fluid).


Hey DrKucho; sounds like you have 2 Bent Rear Uprights or Messed-Up Bearings. . . . .Did you put any Thread-Lock near those Bearings in the Rear Uprights?
-I haven`t had that problem with My Evo 5.....yet. I would get NEW Rear Uprights and see what`s up.

FDR is 2.437. i am not sure what the biggest 48dp spur is but i know you can squeeze in a 100T 64dp spur in. hope that helps.

Hey Guys,

At the moment i have an Xray t1 fk04 and am thinking of getting an Evo 5, although will this car handle/perform better than my current car racing in stock on smooth concrete, medium temperatures?

Cheers
