Alex, I did have them on the outer hole (carpet tower) and moved them in and it got better actually. I will try adding the kick up first. Would I want to go softer on the spring for on power?

the flange will act as a stopper to prevent the bearing from coming out on the side of the bulkhead nearest to the motor endbell. this is exactly how the T1 works till they put the plastic bearing holder on the evo 2. never had this problem on my T1 before, but since upgrading to the evo2 2 months ago, i've melted one on the last race i attended.

well maybe i did something wrong with the allignment. but come to think of it, this plastic bearing holder is not an eccentric one. it fits perfectly on the bulkhead right in the middle of the layshaft. i even tried to flick the layshaft with my finger without the belts installed and it spinned like it's not gonna stop. i'm not saying there's a flop on the design or something, please don't get me wrong.. i love this car! but i wonder why many owners are having problem with this part and like i said, i never had a problem on my old T1.

Matt04,

run 30wt oil with the adjustable shock pistons at every track you go to. this is all i ever run. as for a setup for eastern creek:

with 63mm tires

front
30wt oil, pistons set to 3holes closed(hardest)
red x-ray springs
outer holes on the suspension arm and shock tower
5mm ride height
2mm droop
ellegi 40rear (trued to 25mm wide)
3 degrees kickup
heaviest swaybar
3 degrees caster
standard rollcenter hole for top arm on shock tower
oneway diff

rear
30wt oil, pistons set to 3hole open, 1hole closed
light purple x-ray springs
middle hole on shock tower and lower arm
5mm ride height
4mm droop
ellegi 40rear(leave them at 26mm wide)
3 degrees kickup
heaviest swaybar
standard rollcenter position for top arm
2mm wheelbase clip at the front of the rear arms
2 degrees of toe in
ball diff set tight but not enough to turn the motor over

this is a twitchy but FAST setup, it has the speed to do 20laps but will require precise driving.

you could try 37fronts on the fronts to make it more stable but will probably need a slightly softer spring or lay the shock down a hole or 2 to get steering back.

will have to see what happens on the weekend

dontfeelcold: best place is ashford hobbies.

stevent: you will not be able to use the one-way layshaft, so if you have that you will need a new layshaft

Hmm someone at my local track told me that he had problem with the rear bulk head collapsing to each other... and told be to put reinforcement between the 2 wholes where you normally put the belt tensioner to "push" the bulk head apart.
I was thinking if he's right, and the bulk heads do collapse to each other, then the bearings on the layshaft most be under loads of pressure!? Not sure exactly why this is the case, but the solution is to put stearing rod between the 2 wholes on the bulkhead as mentioned earlier... My Evo2 is still new sitting in my room, so I don't really have experience... anyway.,. it doesn't hurt to try...

Hey guys,

Ok, I'm going to install the short arms on my EVO2. Do I need anything else to do this? Also, I'm running the blade type sway bar in the front. Can I still use this or do I have to switch to the wire type bar? Any help/instructions would be appreciated.

Thanx,

Thanx,
You can't use the blade sway bar, you will need the wire one. You also need the #2 mount (I think those are it) the ones that are capped on one side you will need 4 of the short tubes (threaded aluminum things) and the Shorter hinge pins (like on the T1R) Sory I don't have part # Ill see if I can get them and post them. good luck.

Luis

Standing the shocks up, does that make them softer or harder? I thought laying the shocks down would make them softer?
