- flex forward/flex rear
- fixed front/fixed rear

One thing to make sure you measure out is the eyelet spacing of the P13-4

This is a trick addition to the feature list.

Separately, what has the preference been between the graphite and aluminum FFG tubes?

I am wondering, if i race only 17.5, are the flexible caster mounts worth it?

Hello,

I've just purchase an EVO and was wondering where is the best place to order spares from when I'm based in the UK?

Cheers Mike

Hi - Can anyone tell me if you have to cut the lug off the bottom front dust cover when using the FFG?

Thanks

I didn't have to cut mine. But I did only fit it in then removed it. Haven't ran with it. But it fit fine without trimming anything

They are good to have if you want to try a larry/hanulec setup though as they run those. Their setups tend to be less touchy than mine so if my setup doesn't work for you theirs might.
Thanks for the explanation and help. Droop is the one thing I have a hard time remembering the effects of. I would say, your set up was not bad, I was faster than I have ever been with your set-up, but it did not work for me, too edgy would be a good way to describe it. I think edgy or touchy set-ups probably will produce the fastest car, but if the driving is not right on point, then it will result in slower overall averages. For me, I like a car that is predictable and safe, one that will not punish me for my mistakes, this may be a bit slower of a car for fast laps, but for me, produces a better and faster average.

I came into this car looking for 0.3-0.5seconds, I had my old car set-up to where I could drive it hard for my ability, and my consistency was good with that car, was just not on pace. With your set-up on this new car, my fast laps were only 0.1-0.2sec off pace, I just could not drive it constantly.

This weekend, I tried Hanulec's set-up. Wow, what a difference. The car was planted. I was right on point with the fast guys, in more than one race I posted the same fast lap to the 1/100th! I did leave some on the track, little mistakes add up, but I know I now have the car, just need to work on my consistency. The car with this set-up was a joy to drive, and would not punish me too much for my mistakes, the car would recover quicker, meaning less time lost from a mistake. With a little work on the set-up, and more track time, I think this car will be just what I was looking for.

The boys are rolling well after first day of practice. Our times in 17.5 and 13.5 are deep in the top 10 (if not yop 5). Mod is improving. All in all -- trying to NOT TQ practice

Going to running the EVO for the first time tonight.

I would just like to say that the car looks and builds amazing. Even if I don't get on with it I'll keep it just for show.

I was worried about all the new ideas on the car that I would have to understand but after working on it for a couple of hours I was thinking these are great ideas and thought why haven't they been used before.

The car is easy to maintain and well thought out, point being how easy it is to change the spur and diffs. As for the suspension once you've looked and played around with it to understand what to adjust its really quite easy.

Really looking forward to running it tonight so finger crossed all goes well.

Mike
