JDM-Dave, here's a purposely blurred out photo of DJ's rear suspension from the KO race.

I'm sure that someone will take a picture of it at the pre-worlds. After that cat is out of the bag, I'll post the un-blurred "mad science" version

Man, why are the slots in the shaft cups cut so deep?
Its not as if that dogbone is gunna go thru severe angles
like a steering knuckle. Tamiya could have cut less of a slot
and left more meat to clasp the 2 cup sides better.

I dunno WC. Maybe so you can slide the shaft forward or back to take off the other end of the car or input shaft. But I do know the ring around the cup has worked great for me so far. So I'll deal with that for now.

Question Dave... have you used the Pro4 stuff yet on your car? I was wondering if you could just use the HPI front spindles with the stock Evo IV carriers up front. I'd like something beefier (bearings) up front along with the HPI/MIP CVDs. OH and about the bumpers... any chance on just getting only 1? I think 4 are abit too pricey for me....

Anyways, ran the Evo IV today in 19t and stock. Car ran pretty good for 19t. But it's still not up to speed yet with my Yokomo in Stock. So more tuning should provide better results. Especially considering I had my Yok since it came out. We'll see.

Yes the HPI knuckle can be used up front with stock c-huball you have to do is add a .5mm shim and use the TC-3 dog bone works great also same for the rear..you can use the Pro4 rear hub
also no problem on the bumper plate...PM me for more details
