Can anyone explain to me what the difference is in the 15 degree and the zero degree SACS front arms?

Also, what is the kit set-up on castor for the EVO. Does this change with the zero degree SACS arms?

Has anyone tried the new chassis pieces for the EVO yet?

Thanks,
Jon

jon, zero sacs has conventional parallel pin arangement. The 15 sacs on the other hand, has the caster block mounted at a 15 deg angle to the inner pin. It is "swept back". This should make the car less agressive at the front. Personally i have never run with 15 sacs as when i joind Schumacher i was told that "nobody ever does!!"

Caster is as standard 30 deg. This can be changed 5deg either way by the optional caster blocks. The sacs has no bearing on this at all, although different blocks are required depending on the wishbones that you are using. Generally i run 25 deg.

Matt W,

Thanks for your reply.

What about the newer chassis and tranny pieces that are out on the EVO 2? Is there any benefit to getting these pieces?

Anyother suggestions from you or anyone that will make this car better or just stuff that I should try, please let me know. I am new to this car and noone around here really runs the Schumacher off-road cars. I feel this car is very trick and I'm very excited about getting to the track with it soon.

Thanks,
Jon

the only things I consider a must are the new rear shock tower and the one piece pistons for the shocks having the different castor blocks are nice. what kind of track do you run on that would help in us getting you a setup to run

jon, if you have an older EVO, there are very few benefits in running EVO 2 chassis. The kit chassis only has more material left on it around the gearbox housing, hence the new gearbox housing as well. This has been done as some people had been breaking the chassis at this point. The new front mount has more material to strengthen. The rear mount has some new shock mounting holes and top link holes. The old top row of link holes is now the lower row, and there is a new row above. The only draw back with the new rear mount is that the wing mount is much higher, which personally i don't like the look of!!!

So, there is more to the EVO 2 than just chassis pieces and new tranny case.

Can I use the new lower chassis with my EVO or do I have to buy more parts.

Should I get the new rear shock tower? What are the newer part numbers for that stuff? Can't seem to get them off of there web-site.

Which rear hexes are you running? Wide or narrow?

I have an EVO with the following: 3 degree alum rear arm mounts, zero degree SACS front arms, castor blocks, slipper clutch, one-piece pistons, alloy shocks, titanium turnbuckles.

Are there any other hop-ups that would be beneficial to me? I run on hard packed (dusty) track with large jumps?

Any good set-ups?

email me Matt W....I would like to chat with you about your car and set-ups.

To use the new lower chassis you have to use the new gearbox casings.

if your using a mod motor I would also get the alloy idler gear but if you use stock stick with the stock gear. I also use the wide hexes. for a setup try this
front outside hole on tower inside hole on arm b camber link blue springs 45 wt oil 2 hole piston
rear outside hole on tower 3 hole on arm d (i think will double check ) camber link red spring 40wt oil 2 hole piston short wheelbase
try that it will jump very well and if need more steering go to a mid wheelbase this should be good starting point
