There are a few guys running the Answer part, minus the new bushings. New bushings will just make it a simple install. No drilling and no losi parts.

I have always run long links, all the way up. Doesn't mean it's the best, just what I have always run. I need to start playing around with them and see what I can gain...

You run shock boots?


I guess I change oils so much that I have never really had an issue with them leaking. Running them without boots will destroy them and make them leak way sooner.

Biggest issue is the amount of blow by on the stock pistons, makes setting the truck up on hot days a little more involved. I have started running the red csi pistons. They are the same size, but you can run way heavier oils so the blow by and heat up is way less dramatic. So far, running 60/50 and the truck is solid.

You have to use pliers to tighten the shock caps. I grab the shock body with Chanel locks wrapped in rubber and then use another plier to tighten the caps. The rubber seal created by the new shock bladders is impossible to tighten fully by hand.

Guys that have some good run time on the EVO truggies how do they compare to other brands? I've owned just about everything except an Agama. Currently have a few losis in the stable now.

Hi Matt

We've run the truggy at every national and majot race this year, My brother took the SA championship with it.. and this is no joke.. The only parts he replaced THIS YEAR are as follows.
Seriously..... no jokes.

1 set of front and rear arms.
1 set of front Drive shafts.
1 set of front hinge pins.
1 x Front hinge pin Brace.
1 x Wing mount
This obv doesn't include your bearings/clutch bells etc..
Hinge pin brace and front arms/driveshafts was only becuase he had in incident with a wall.. car was still drivable, as it was only bent, didnt break.

I have to admit the car is strong, but it needs some TLC now, steering assembly has some major slop on it.

Very happy with the car. I drove it yesterday for the first time (im a buggy driver) and i was 1sec off my buggy pace lol. it drives like a buggy. His setup was a bit pushy on power for my liking.. but still solid...
