It's very nice, I only wish they made the TB02R a better deal, really all it is is a bit of CF, some blue and lightweight suspension

I know this is a bit off topic, so I'll flame myself

Okay, thanks for the tip. I have to investigate my rear end of the car anyway, plus I am getting some more spurs. My car sounded awful last time at TFTR, but I was out of 100tooth 64dp spurs.

Cool, just ordered 5 78 tooth spurs. NICE!!! Thanks for the input too, makes me feel a lot better.

Hey, who's this?? Its awesome to see the number of Evos growing in Australia, especially in Melbourne!!! Now it seems that they are becoming a bit more common which is great. Gotta fly the flag for Evo IV. It's a great car, especially in Stock trim. I've only just started doing modified after doing well in Stock so I can't totally comment about its Modified performance because I think that its more motor and car setup that I'm missing rather then it being the actual car's fault.

Anyway, great to hear about it. Check out www.rcracer.com.au as you can find a lot of info about us Melbourne, Australia runners there with clubs, etc pages there too. Plus.... most Evo IV owners seem to be there, at least the guys from Melbourne are.

Hey Alonso, you might have to just slightly bevel the top deck with a 78 tooth spur.

Great to hear buddy!!

Patrick, when you say bevel, do you mean shave a bit of the top deck for it to fit??

Default 28mm foam on front LW suspension solution!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I special ordered some Square steering knuckles for the stock 415 and come to find out that it shorter in height,used tube flanges and shim for installtion, so I was messing around and guess what the stock 415 steering knuckle will fit the LW suspension caster block


on the left is the full stock set-up and on the right is the combination of the two. No modification are need if you order the Square Steering knuckle it come with everything you need

Does anyone know if the Evo4 MS is going to come with the extra suspension mounts? I'm going to pre-order mine in a couple of days and was wondering if I need to plan on ordering the mounts as well.
Also, what are the must have extra parts for the Evo. I'm not sure about parts supply in my area, and I don't want to get caught short handed.
