50x F1 Evos have come and gone at Roche RC USA. More are on order.
I tried to find where to order one a week or two ago, and had no luck... went ahead and got the F6.

hanulec,
I clicked on your link in your sig but still found nowhere to actually order - and no instructions on how to order either. So, do you have to send an email that you want one and wait for a reply?? Just curious, as I would still like one of these.

Thanks in advance.

Any chance that you can post the setup for this hot rod?

[QUOTE=gabc;15070952]Thanks Panda! Any idea how many additional mm this will give me over the stock ones?

The aluminum rear pod was thinner than the graphite so the axle was lower to the ground. Don't remember the difference it gained. Just remember it got me to 5.0 ride height as I was running outdoor.

Any chance we'll see a USA Spec Evo with the Aluminium chassis?

May I know what's the reason behind this, and how this affects handling? Thanks!

its to get thicker but not too think -- ie both of heavier weights in both tubes

the thicker dampening slows reactions slightly and helps the car keep its 'set'
