Checkout our website for additional information http://www.forgass.com/ I am not aware of any tracks in the Jacksonville area but there may be some.

As for a hobby shop, you gotta checkout PNP Hobbies in Palm Bay. Depending upon where you are in Jacksonville, PNP is around 150 miles south but it's worth the drive. They are racers and they have a track right down the street. I don't know the area very well but I travel to Jacksonville twice a month. PM me if you have any questions and I will try to help you out.

Welcome to the neighborhood,
Jim
Thanks for the information. Will let you know when I get there Need to get settled first though

Well, I'm running the stock shock springs that came with the evo kit. Referring to the manual, these springs are on the middle. I have tried running harder springs and the rear end of my car is loose. Also, I'm running my kit already at 7mm front and 8mm rear. Will try to increase my ride height. But I think it's more of the kind track that I run my kit...

I think there are five schools of thought when it comes to upgrades:

1. Run the car as it came in the kit
2. Upgrade certain parts for durability, weight savings and best performance, but only with those parts made by the manufacturer
3. Upgrade certain parts for durability, weight savings and best performance - and it doesn't matter who makes the parts
4. Upgrade because the new version of the car comes with the parts
5. Upgrade just to upgrade, it doesn't matter what it does.

I'm a #3 guy. When the Evo came out, I asked myself which one of the new parts I would get for my car. The only thing that caught my eye was the shocks - and I still haven't gotten them yet.

The new brake pulley sure looks nice, but I haven't had any problems with my pulley and the KFactory brakes on my car work great.

The rear bulkhead looks like it has some possibilities, but I haven't heard any feedback about it. Is anybody actually using those other camber link holes?

About the only thing I spied that I didn't see before was the Lightweight 1st Gear Housing. That looks like something I might have to get.
http://www.shopkyosho.com/img/produc...410/VZW064.jpg

So IMO, there are only two parts that came out of the Evo/Evo WC for inclusion in the UE/X spec. The 1st Gear Housing is an easy one. Everyone seems to like the new shocks - but I don't think I've come across any "road test" info that says exactly how they are better out on the track. I may give them a try in the near future.

I really can't guage what the level of interest is in maintaining the UE/X spec. If you have a standard RRR or RRR WCE (or just bought one), I still think it's a good reference document if you're considering getting any upgrades.

BTW: That new Kyosho spool looks promising (VZW220), but I haven't gotten any feedback on it yet.

I have to stop doing so many things and make the effort to update the spec. Too many fun things to do and work on, but so little time to do them all.

but what about the changes in layout of sevo mounting. is that not performance enhancing by having a direct link?

I would say... that it's very minimal at best.
