I may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer but what does "Evo" refer to or stand for?

This is what I found on the racing-cars.com, (the Schumacher website):

http://www.racing-cars.com/products....&pagewidth=550

Colin Price won the mod class, chriss grainger was 2nd, and matt white ended up in 8th.

Now the question is, did they win with the standard MI-5, since the weather was cool and everyone knows how good the MI-5 works on low traction, or did they use the new MI-5 EVO?

Could someone in England give us the answer to this question?
I Believe it was the new MI5 they were running, I asked another team driver and he said they were both running the new MI5.

because everyone is waiting for the new car.
many in my local track told me to switch to RC R10 instead of getting the new model. because the I just cant find the setup to compete with them on high traction tight track. yet R10 is pretty much brainless to be good to drive. Not to mention their team driver is at our local track?
I am struggle with getting the new model as no one interesting in my Mi5 even it is in very good condition.

My son will be running his Mi5 next weekend. At the moment he has no spares at all for it (we do have a spare car though).

What to most people find breaks the easiest on these cars? Front hubs?

The only parts I have broken on my Mi5 is the lower front bumper support and I've managed to shear the aluminium bolts that hold the front suspension arms. I think I've gone through three bumper supports now.

the screws on the lower arms (i have steel ones in now but i would stick to alloy if new to the car) and caster kingpin screws but they are stronger now (bearings with the kingpin screws as the pop out lol ) the car is solid had week points but has been sorted now and thats all i have broke in the year and bit of owning the car
