gido - what helped me was to raise the rear roll center by putting a 1 or 2 mm spacer under the rear camber link on the hub side. This calmed the back end down a little.

Barry, what do you mean "how are you mounting the gears?" If you are using a Robinson or Kimbrough 64P Spur, it should go right on. What problems are you having?

The spur should fit right on the layshaft. If the holes don't line up, you will need to dremel the spur so that it will bolt on.

or you could use a x-acto knife to cut the hole.

Kevin, the spur gears I have don't line up with the 3 holes in the layshaft flange. Guess I could drill new holes like was suggested.
Thanks.

Hi jag88, the spurs i use are RW spurs, they too do not line up to the 3-hole layshaft flange either. What i did was use the stock spur as a guide to drill the other 2 hole, be carefull and drill straight or you might damage the sock spur. RW spurs are made in the UK and are delrin, lightweight, and very stiff.

I use a dremel to open up the two holes. I don't put another spur on top of it though, I just mark it with a sharpie.

Hi Jag88!

I tried your suggestion. However the screw holding the camber link and the hub is hitting the inner rear wheel when i added the 2mm spacer. How can it be done without the screw hitting the wheel?

Thanks again!

Can any of the EVO 'pilots' out there tell me their experiences with the ajustable center oneway ? Good, bad, no change ? Carpet or pavement. It seems that it would be a trick ajustment for fine tuning.

gido, I assuming that you have the FK. I have my rear link mounted in the number 1 hole of the rear hub. I don't think it will work in the number 2 position. If you take an xacto and knock off the corner of the wheel by going around 360 a couple of times slowly it should fit. Some of my wheels fit without cutting and some don't.
Josh Cyrul uses a 3mm spacer but uses a different ball end ( I think it's the same end from the front inner camber link).
Hope this helps !
