Does anybody know if there are plans to make a one piece engine mount w/ removable top blocks? If so, I'm interested! I want the shocks already too, come on and get 'er done.

Any of my fellow EVO owners have a spare EVO wing stay they'd be willing to sell?

I know Alan is at the Silver State at the moment....

I had problems starting a friends car last weekend on one box, however it worked fine on another box. I would just open up the flywheel hole a bit, or chamfer the edges, whichever you choose.


Running full droop will also hamper the ability to start the car as it will not sit between the pegs like it should. I found that out with my mbx5r.

Cheese, Where did you buy your car? I know where. It has been said not to buy from that place all over this thread. Saving a hundred bucks isnt quite as good of deal when you buy a car that shouldnt even be on the market. Our current car is hands down a better car, you get what you pay for. As far as your wheels rubbing, what kind of rims are you running. I have never experienced this issue. My rear arms sometimes rub against the driveshaft where the connect to the hingepin depends on antisquat setting. If you guys would make it over to Planet RC, Jay Hudson and myself would be more than happy to investigate your ride and give you a helping hand.
