Just received my confirmation on the shipment of my parts order for my EVO2 parts. Very nice and it looks like everything was in stock so even better.

right now having taken the .030 washer out from under the front pivot and rebolting it....the two 2-56 screws have or are causing a slight load creating a droop in the upward direction.

i know many things changed from the first to the second version, like the cross brass is now infront of the aluminum standoffs not in back. yep i had to redo it after following the older instructions...no biggee just want ot make sure i didn't miss anything new that was to be done before i grind.
I noticed this last night. I was thinking about countersinking the t-bar, but then it would probably be too weak. So I dremeled a notch in the lower plate so the screw cap doesn't touch the lower pod plate.

I am thinking of getting a CEFX C12 EVO Green, but I have never ran a 1/12th, can someone tell me what size screws it uses Standard or Metric, and what if any hopups are good?

The kit that I had was standard screws. I don't know if the green front bumper (in the picture a couple posts before is included) but that would be a good choice.

Here is a list of 1/12th items that we sold a lot of. Are they necessary, probably not.
Calandra Dura Shock
Calandra Upper Arm Mounts for the front suspension
Calandra Delrin Pivot Sockets and Balls for the t-bar.

IRS also has some of these parts as well. Are they needed, probably not. The car with the stock parts will work just fine.

Hey Boys,

Here is what we ran at the Gate/Stock Nationals

Front
Lube on kingpins: Kyosho yellow grease
Springs: 0.018
Blocks: 5 deg - white shim on both side of upper arm
Camber: -2
Front Ride Height: 3.5mm - 4mm

Rear
T-plate: C12 .062 T-Bar - Med - C12 Only
2 screws
Tubes: Kyosho yellow grease
Ride Height: 4mm

Shock
30w Losi
stock C12 spring ( olive Assoc. )

Tires
Front: Dbl Pink Wrap
Rear: Yellow Wrap

Speed 12 body
* ride height a little high but the track is a little bumpy. Typ. 3-3.5 all around

The car was very fast and easy to drive. I qualified 2nd in the open class and
only my little mistakes held me back. This was also the same set-up we
ran at the nationals at home.

Hope that helps.
James Reilly

Rich Chang has a wonderful 1/12 cheat sheet. Just can't remember which thread I found it in. Most likely 1/12 thread.
