Does the older evo chassis share many parts with the modern FK04/05 models. The gut seem similar but chassis layout seems different. Is it a chassis thing ???? Thanks for your help on this as a fellow rctech'r has a evo for sale and I am considering this car.
the evo and the fk04 are pretty close. the bulkheads are different but the rest is i think the same? oh the upper too?
the 05 is way more different. i still think the older models still kick butt. the basic breakable stuff seems to be exactly the same. like chubs, knuckles etc. the arms have short arms now tho.
oh but i have heard the 05 comes with a bit beefier chubs? *hopeful*

I just installed my wide top deck....

For those that have already done this, did you notice any difference to how the car felt or reacted...will it mean any setup tweaks or just keep it as is and drive??
