just thought I'd give my opinion oon the 2 cars.
I suppose in general one would hope that the second version of a car is better than the first...otherwise why would you bother buying it..
In my opinion as far as the actual performance goes there would be little to no difference... There are though, a few design Improvements in the Evo 2 that make good sense.
For a start the adjustable cams in the bulkheads that allow you to adjust belt tension.. This is a good improvement...
Secondly the shocks on the Evo 2 are a better design because the shafts are keyed rather than having a thread for the piston to screw on to... The threaded pistons on the Serpent shocks are supposed to be prone to stripping...
Finally the chassis design allows for more battery placement options which is quite handy as I have found..
There are other minor design differences in the Lower arms and more shock positions drilled in the towers etc..
In my opinion though, there would be nothing seperating them on the track.
I would suggest if you have an Xray T1 just buy the Evo 2 Parts next time you have to replace something... they are totally interchangeable.. For Instance if you have to buy a new chassis get the Evo 2 one or if you break your front lower arm just buy a pair of the Evo 2 arms and replace them both..
You probably already know this but I'm just elaborating on my Initial points..
