No, no, no....60D's suck. Lots of people make 55mm Mini tires. Sweep, Rush, Pit Shimizu, Volante, all are good.

So I've started my build on this and a couple of comments:

Bag 1 - This is the diff. The gasket isn't made out of paper. It's some vinyl that is a little brittle. The screw holes weren't punched out all the way through for mine so I had to be super careful to get those sorted without ripping the gasket to shreds.

Bag 2 - Build up of the gearbox and motor mount.
Have to be careful with the bearing's here. There are 2 different 10mm OD bearings!
When putting the gearbox and motor mount together, I've noticed that its a bit hard to build completely flat. I'm not at the stage where I need to mount the gearbox and motor mount on to the FRP chassis yet, but I think I'll be careful, undo all the screws holding the motor mount on to the gear box and tighten it all slowly to try and ensure this thing goes together flat.

If you missed out on the initial shipment, the MG EVO will be back in stock at most HK stores by the end of this week.

p.s. I wont bother to mention that the co-ordinate axis in the bottom l/hand corner is weirdly wrong.
Blame SolidWorks. That's the default coordinate system.

I only own the M07, but it's not bad at all.

First time ran the MG Evo chassis, it was a great handling M-chassis car.
Build as a box stock with a 21.5T motor and gear FDR 5.7 to match the other mini on the track.

Because forums and such are dead now. For MG EVO talk, go here

forums are dying because people create closed discussion groups... Not the opposite...

The MG EVO group on FB is a public group, not closed... And I started it because there was so little chat on here, but the FB group is going along nicely.

How far are everyone deviating from the stock setup? Like shock oil, pistons, springs, roll center, etc.?
Although good out of the box, it can be better I'm sure.
500,000 diff oil could be too heavy for some conditions.
And having a mix of shock springs could be better than running all 4 springs with the same rate?
Stuffs like that....
