Do you all recommend the alum Knuckles, C-hubs? Do they bend easily? Is 160$ for a evoII with short arms 1.77 and ALum C-hub and Knuckles all around a good deal?

I paid that much for a evoII w/ full aluminum (Rear hubs, steering, 3 and 6 degree C-hubs, etc) and the car was about the Biggest POS I ever bought. IT was so rough, aluminum looked it had been hit with battery acid, the chassis was cut-hacked-dremeled, battery posts were mangled, c-hubs bent......So all I can say is its a good deal IF its in good shape.

Be careful-you CAN bend the c-hubs!!! And after yu bend them back-they get weaker and weaker.

This is just me-but I'd buy the car for parts-sell off the chassis and top deck and the c-hubs and take the money and buy the BMI or Warpseed chassis. I wont run the aluminum c-hubs indoors due to bending on 2x4 barriers!!I would run the aluminum steering knuckles and rear hubs though.

Pretty much it.

1.77 pullys
short arm conversion
aluminum carriers if you can afford it
kevlar belts
BMI chassis if you can afford it.
tanx sands.

1.77 pulleys? the stock is at 2.125 right?

does anyone have a part number on the short arm conversion and all the accessories needed to install them? also, will the short arms fit on the evo2 FOC?

kevlar belts are the ones used for the FOC right?

tanx in advance.

TRUE R/C RACING: sorry i couldnt make the deal push through, hope u got my pm yesterday. tanx

Hey Guys
I am looking at cutting teeth off of my belts. Have any of you tried this? I know people have cut teeth off pullies but I am running full pullies.

You run the increased risk of the belt breaking.

another query, how do you gear your MVPs and monsters on the FOC? hope someone could help, have an upcoming race tomorrow. right now, i am using 90 spur and 29 pinion combo, giving me a final drive ration of 6.5+++ i think. but it seems my car is still being left in the dust, i was able to finish third though. tanx in advance...

MVP's and Monsters are rpm motors. Your FDR should be alot lower that it is right now. Somewhere in the 7's.

Stephen, if your going to run cut belts in stock it might be ok. But those belts are kelvar so they have strands through out. I would almost bet that if you cut the teeth off the belt it would fray like mad and eventually break. But hey try it and if it doesn't work make your dad buy new belts.

I think cutting each teeth off Diff gear is better. I believe that If you cut the teeths off belt you risk Breaking the belt also since it becomes loose You at risk of flipping the belt over If you dont have a tensioner in a Crash.(correct me if im wrong)
