Aluma the Fireblade EVO is just like mine. They made a few little changes on the EV02 like the towers and the chassis. As far as the looks it is just like the EVO Fireblade on Schumachers website. I was actually trying to sell it at my friends hobby shop but I would trade it.

Has anyone tried taking out Tamiya Evo 2's battery holder and use glass tape instead? You will be able to adjust battery weight disrtibution forward and rear. It works.

It actually works for both types of batteries just make sure tape hold on perfectly.

In my case, only 5 cells sit in properly on the slots whether I move it forward or backward. Often times I sacrifice its uneven mounting to the chassis but eventually get the right balance when I want to.

72s and 34p is only safe if you are running P2K, any other type of stock motor would burn. (burned mine GM3, P2k2).

try 88S with pinion ranging from 35 to 37. (depend on the track). If you are running on a big track you can even put a 39P with 88spur.
