777Yoda777, have you tried the Mi5evo? What are you looking for in a new car that the evo doesn't have?

plus 1+....its more advanced than just about all the current TCs out there. and I like how they release new parts that will actually fit the new car..unlike some manufacturers

Evo hasnt really been out for that long so my guess is it will be a longer while rather than a short while before a new car comes out and the fact that the new steering/towers etc fit the evo tells you that.

Default 30mm foam wheels

Hello, is anyone here that has tried to fit 30mm foam tires at the back of the Mi5evo? We all race at a very thight and twisty indoor carpet track and with my current car, the Mi4cxl, I had to make some adjustments. With the Xray and the VBC DB7 it isn't any problem but I prefer the MI5evo because a lot of parts from my current car fit into the Mi5evo. The thing that I'm afraid of is the lower suspension mount when I look at the manual.

I have to trim 1mm off of 28mm foams to fit a mi5 if that helps you any, I will check them on my mi5evo tonight to see for sure
