150 of each color... limited run...
Maybe we should have bought an extra set.

Hey Rick,

I read somewhere that the LW suspension set works better on low-grip surfaces. Gunther tested his Evo4 on carpet, but he wasn't too keen on it either. Perhaps you shouldn't have sold your 415 after all!

David,

I tested the TB EVO IV on carpet and was very happy with it.
Only the rear uprights are not stiff enough. I replaced them with the aluminium ones of the 415.

Default clear gearboxs

what's cool about the clear set is that it includes the clear pieces if you don't want to run the clear gearbox. It has the little piece that holds the bearings down!!
