I also used an receiver battery with 1050mah instead of the 1400mah i used to run as the 1050mah pack was 25! grams lighter.



Tnx, The paint job was done by solid grafics. The blue one is mine and the red white blue one is from a friend.
Nice... It's such a waste to bash those beautifully painted bodies during the race...

I agree with you. What I do is that I take apart the pulleys after 2 to 3 run sessions at our tracks. Some small particles may be lodge between the teeths of the pulleys. With those small suckers stuck in betweem, your SP belts or even the regular belts get worn out easily... Also, if I'm get lazy, I just replace the pulleys with brand new ones. Getting a new set of pulleys are cheaper compared to getting a whole set of SP belts... Just my 2 cents...

Hi guys,

Can you tell if this part the k factory brake disc (K1901) fits the Evo? Cuz it seems that the Evo has a different brake stopper

This disc won't work with the RRR EVO, the EVO have a different brake hub that uses pins.

It won't fit because the Evo brake disk is hold by pins.. this disk is for RRR In my experience if you want a better disk than stock you should look for APP02-1

Thanks for the quick reply.
One last question about this: can I change the brake hub for the old RRR in the Evo?

Yes, you can. But you have to change the gearbox shaft VZ227, brake pulley VZW205 and 18T pulley VZ203 also you need two 2x11mm pins 92051

Thanks Jeff
The only problem is that I already bought this disk. I'll see if I can get those parts to put it in the car.
Cheers

I have the car setup with all the rollcenter spacers at the highest setting, the hole in the top, what would be the effect of setting them to the bottom?
