Thanks, I appreciate the feedback on that. The local bike shop only had the Clean-Lube in stock.

I got my evo2 out for some more practice today. Only the second time out with it and I can't express how happy I am with the car. As I start to get familiar with it everything is starting to make sense. I've got a ways to go though for sure.
I started with mike gee's setup and have adjusted slightly from there but it was pretty solid on a medium bite track that's about 2/3 the size of Horsham.
I finally received the used 700l I bought on rc tech but haven't had a chance to get electronics in yet. What's the consensus on the differences in the two cars? Am I going to notice/ be disappointed in the lack of the FFG? The 700l I got has the new aluminum chassis and new mm2 motor mount.

What class are you planning on running? From what I was told when deciding between the Evo and L car is the FFG's advantage is more apparent when running a more powerful mod motor. People (like me) running 17.5 or slower probably won't notice the difference.

Now, I ended up getting the Evo anyway, but that's just because I plan on running mod next season.

For now I'm going to stick with 17.5 also. Seems that one of the tracks near me has been running 13.5 as well so I might use the Evo2 for that.

The L is a more aggresive driving car than the evo. It can be fast but it is definitely a more steer happy car.

Thought I'd share this for fun. Thought I'd clean up and rebuild it but ended up going much further than planned.. milled and drilled AM30-5 to accept the new tower.

Wow, it looks incredible! Well done! I really want to steal your idea and polish my car now. What method did you use to get those impressive results?

I de-anodised in a plastic tub with a light solution of caustic soda then some sanding with 1200 grit paper wet and a block where necessary to remove milling marks then a 4 inch buffing wheel. I did the smaller parts with dremel polishing wheel. The really tight areas I used a cotton bud dipped in Autosol in a dremel. Reminds me a bit of the SMP Slide Chrome now.

On a completely different subject I think I might have found a solution for leaks in the D2 damper. I don't know if silicone is the best material perhaps someone could advise on whether nitrile would be better but so far the results have been very encouraging. Although quoted at the correct size they are ever, ever so slightly bigger than the originals. I ran four packs today and the seal has held really well. For the price its certainly worth a try. Less than a week to England.

For the dampers i have used the dow 55 grease someone else suggested. It has worked great, going on 5 weeks on one set and they still feel fresh
