I recommend the 9550 low profile servo. Digital, high speed and leaves plenty of room for all your other electronics.

Or Nosram Dominator Evolution (which is the same as the LRP Quantum 2)

The LRP is blue in colour
The Nosram is red (to match the Evo 3SE)

I am thinking of replacing my 414 with a new Tamiya.

The TRF 415 thread is very active and I get a lot of info from there for that car, but the EVO IV thread is not very informative.

Arenīt there many users of the EVO IV yet, or simply the 415 is the favorite?

What I am interested to know is how the striping of the front gears and rear gears is going. Is there any striping or this problem has been fixed.

Has anyone tried a oneway and or a spool upfront?

Thanks,
John.

F.Alonso,

I think there was quite a few guys running the EVO IV at the TCS North American Championship...however, the top finishers ran:

1st: Ling Kang Tong = TRF415
2nd: Orlando Sherman = EVO III (I believe)
3rd: Corey Whiteman (I'm not sure what he ran)

I ended up just outside of the podium with my TRF415 in 4th quite honestly, I'm not sure if there was any EVO IV in the top 10. I think it's just the lack of time to setup the EVO IV for the TCS national since it was released in the US just a couple of weeks before hand.

The EVo4 was not allowed at the Eurofinals. Only cars and parts that were on the catalog before the 1st of may.
