All the spares I picked up in Tokyo have "EVOLVA" specifically printed on the part label next to the part number....so I don't know about interchangeability.
Where in SoCal do you guys race? I'm an oldtimer who hasn't raced in ten+ years but I'm getting back into it (obviously).
I'm going to be frequenting the Sun Valley track and I bought a suitcase full of spares....so....I'll sell it to you if I have it.
I'm also going back to Tokyo in August and can pick up more then.
Currently in Souther California has three major tracks that race 8th scale:
Sun Valley Micro/KZ Speedway in Burbank (you mentioned this)
Crystal Park Raceway in Compton
Revelation Raceway in Montclair (my personal favorite)
Revelation (in my opinion) has the nicest facility of the three. Covered pits, power, onsite community compressor, hobby shop (Mugen, Assoc, Losi, Serpent, tires). Traction conditions are really good most of the time. Major race events have awesome traction. Very little tire wear. 8th scale is able to almost run 3 qual and a main on one set of tires.
Crystal Park also has a community compressor. Traction conditions are good most if the time with awesome conditions for major events. Tire is not the best but is managable.
KZ Speedway, I have only raced here once. There is decent traction here. The layouts there are pretty fun. The only major complaint I have against this site is the tire wear. The front sweeper is like a brillo pad. 20 mins of running my sedan = 6.5 mm of wear. Hobby shop there with some parts and tires. I believe they have power and pit tables there now too.
Hopefully this helps.
