Oleg,

Is there a chance you could make an 84 pitch gear chart for the Evo/L car?

Thanks!

Easy enough to make up yourself if you have a calculator handy or are comfortable using Microsoft excel. Regardless of the pitch it's still spur / pinion * internal ratio. I gave up carrying around gear charts since the cars I have had over the years all had slightly different internal ratios. I got my phone with me at the track therefore I got a calculator

You are correct on that part, however there is a limited range of physical gear sizes you can use to get the desired FDR.

Just multiply any 64 pitch by .75 and you have a 48 pitch. That'll at least give you the range of possible gears.

Uh oh...You sending an order in soon?

Here is a chart that shows what a 48-64-84 Pitch equals in teeth size if this is something your looking for.

I'm looking for 84 pitch not 48. Thanks.

That helps but it doesn't go small enough.

Thinking of getting a EVO, but have a few questions first.

Do the new kits ship with the new style diff.?
Do all the parts come with the kit to build with out the FFG?
What are must do upgrades? Seems the kit supplied rod ends and rods are the most common, so why has this not been addressed in the kit?
What tuning parts are a must have?
Are extra shims included?
What should I have for spares?

last but not least, anyone have a used one for sale?

Thanks for the help.

I just got my Evo but have the following on order...

Gd2 with metal gears

Aluminum chassis bundle

p20

Floating servo mount

Some other odds and ends I forget

I too was a little butt hurt that the new kit comes with gd1 but it is what it is. This is a premium car kit and it requires maximum cash flow!

Hi Earl,

No, the EVO kit does not come with the GD2,the included GD1 is a good diff when built right and serviced. ( myself, Colin or Frank can help you with that) I am assuming you will be running stock so we can also help with a starting setup as well.

The EVO is a "L" car with the FFG pieces. It does not come with the parts to convert to a "L".. You might want to start with a "L" or a EXL car kit. ( you also have a better chance of finding one used) and then if you wish you can convert to try the FFG. The FFG in my opinion is needed in mod more so then club racing in the 17.5 class. Both Frank & Collin are currently using the "L" car for reference.


Oleg is working on a new ball end as an option, I am not sure of the ETA of the new pieces but the stock balls ( AT21's) matched with the HD cups, which are now included I believe are a great match with no slop. What you give up is the ability to make a shim adjustment without popping off the ball cup 1st. The TOP balls and cups that most in the USA use give the ability to unscrew the ball without removing the ball cup.. Height wise they are the closest on the market to the height of the AT21 so it makes it easy to compare setups from different drivers regarding the drivers choice of ball and cup.. Hope that makes sense.

Shims-The kit comes with shims to make a range of adjustments, extra's ( .5 mm 1 mm and 1.75mm) are cheap so I would grab some extras.

As for options. I can PM you a list of the ones I would use on all different platforms ( EVO, "L" and "EXL") the list will be different for what you end up with.

For reference the car I ran in mod at the Kelowna race was a EVO with the Alum Chassis, GD2 and Floating servo Mount Frank ran a L with the Floating servo mounts and the AM19's ( upper arm mounts) with a GD1.

Hope this helps, any questions feel free to PM me. Hope to see you in Kamloops.

Thanks Korgae

Yes, will be running stock for now. The 'L' would make the most sense, but, knowing me, I would end up getting the 'FFG' as well. So thinking I should just get the EVO and save some coin.

Running the TOP now, so, have extra balls and ends to use. Not a big deal.

If we could talk in Kamloops, that would be helpful, not going to order the car before then anyways.

Cheers

Anyone know where i can get something similar to the dogbone bushings, trying everywhere to find something similar but not getting anywhere, currently using the brass ones as backup but they wear out real quick
