since you said the sp rear shock stay wont fit part #VZW207. Would this part from KM be better for the car.

Default What about this

I'm not sure how well VZW207 will fit on the Evo, because the rear bulkhead was revised. Maybe someone else knows.

On VZW214, I would run the car for maybe a gallon of fuel before trying it, so you can better guage the before and after performance.

On the Hexcrews conversion kit, just keep in mind, that it doesn't come with any button head screws. Do not use the "Regular Socket Cap" screws for the bottom engine mount screws, as they will protrude below the chassis, which is not a good thing.

IMO, you can leave the servo "as is".

Hope this helps.
will the Kawawhara brake disc work on evo WCE

Not sure about being "better" than what comes with the Evo. Evo version is similar to the KM part. It's just one hole short. It really depends on what your requirements are. I would say, try the Evo part first.

For non-Evos, this KM part give you more tuning options than with the VZW207.

Nope. I checked to see if they had a revised brake disc for the Evo and they don't.

Now as far as brake fade goes for Evo's WCE I heard the new brake pads are nice do you still recommend the K-Factory one's, the new evo wce brake pads, or these kyosho part number APP02-2. Other guy earlier in the post recommended thes kyosho part number APP02-2

can you send me link to what screwsyou used/purchased from tonys to secure the engine mount to the chassis. Also can you sen me the link as to which screws you purchased for the rear chamber link on top of the hub. Thanks.

The APP02-2 are suppose to be good. Quite a number of guys in the forum use it. I was actually going to pick up a set to run in one of my cars just to test it out. I have the KFactory pads and disc in the other car.

You can run the stock brakes and see if you have a fade problem. Fade is a bigger problem in longer mains than in the shorter ones, but only if you're doing a lot of braking. If you don't have a problem, you don't need new brakes. That's how I look at it.

Sorry I am hitting you with so many questions,but If I dont know I have to ask. IYO should I up grade to the 4mm skyline racing shcok tower on the RRR EVo WCE also what receiver pack do you use intellect,Team Orion,Venom .....ETC also do you know if Tony's screw kit for Kyosho V-One RRR will work with evo and does it address the engine mount problem that Hexcrews kit has.

the reason why I ask is the stock carbon fiber front and rear shick towers are kind thin and dont look as strong. One guy up graded to Kawahara but I think they are 3mm as well or is the stock kits shock towers less than 3mm.....

It's a precautionary measure. It's really up to you. Like George, I have never broken a RRR shock tower yet. Knock on wood. But on my MTX-4, some guy took me out one day and the 3mm rear shock tower broke above the shock mount point - so I'm following the advice I posted at my own MTX-4 site and upgrading it to the 4mm Mugen part. Live and learn.

Venom 6V 1200mAh (part# VEN-1500) I like it. Charges at 1 AMP and only takes about an hour or so. Someone probably has a better recommendation.

Hmmm.... I'll take a chance and say that it will work.

Tony's screw kit comes with button head screws, so it's more of a direct replacement kit than the Hexcrews kits - but those A.P. screws sure seem nice.

Bottom engine mount screws: 3 x 8 mm

I recommend using some thin washers with a 3mm inner diameter to increase the screw head surface area for the engine mount screws. You should be able to get those at your LHS.

Rear hub camber link screw: 3 x 20 mm
