I'd say go get one, I have had some shafties b4 (pro4 and TC4) but this one is the bomb, low cg, responsive steering, and it's pretty. I'd say if you can get a good deal go get one and besides it's still faairly new, evo VI may come out after 3 years.

Good luck finding them, maybe try RC champ.
What do you want the Titanium color for?
I can get you some that are aluminum colored, or you can buy the blue ones at SIR and have them re-anodized.

Aluminum would be fine, but I really dont want the blue, I am going to use them on my xray 007 shocks, they are threaded all the way to the top, and they have that notch in them so you know the preload

Default I`m Back

Hey Evo 5 Guys; Sorry I didn`t get back. My computer was out for 2-Months.

My Evo 5 runs alright now. It only has a small problem going to the right during a straight.....(It will go straight for about 35-Yards; then it will go to the right). I think it`s the way I set-up the Front Shocks(1-1/2mm of more Pre-Load on the front shocks should/might fix the problem).....?
(I fixed the totally won`t hold a straight line problem by putting on New Tires and giving it 1-Degree of Front Toe-In.)


I must give thanks to the guys at Brooklyn Hobbies(Brooklyn) and Nagengast Hobbies(Queens) in New York City. They helped me order those -Hard To Get- Tamiya Parts.

Take Care
