Screwing in lowers the shift point? Wow, I would have thought less pre-load would lower it...

No, screwing in the screws makes the car shift later. Looser screws will have the car shift at lower RPM.

Alright guys...

I'm a long time Electric touring car racer and I've been thinking about getting into nitro touring cars. A few of my good racing buddies run the Kyosho car, and I figured it would be a good starting point to get into nitro touring car racing.

But, I just wanted to know if there are any must have hop ups for the evo WCE. We'll be running on a medium bite parking lot track Thanks for the help guys!

P.S. If Mike Ellis is reading... I'm TOTALLY serious about getting a nitro touring car! hahaha

The car works right out of the box....If you would like to lighten the drivetrain this might be a good idea..www.ybslowinc.com sells ome trick stuff. make sure to install a solid car works great with it.. also might want ot try the Sirio power clutch much lighter then the stock Kyosho clutch..you can order them from www.kyoshoamerica.com hope this helps

Cool, I'll probably just grab the basic spring sets and stuff to get some tunign options. Other than that, it sounds like it's got all the goodies I need!

Thanks, I have a hard time with Internet sarcasm. I am that thick headed. I am trying out 3.5 turns. Unfortunately it is snowing six inches of snow right now so my outdoor testing is going to be delayed.

Default 0,1 AND 2 DEGREE FRONT HUBS

I just picked up a new RRR WC EVO and wanted to stock up on spare parts. I looked at the front hubs and they have 0,1 and 2 degree hubs. What is the advantage to the degreed hubs?

Thanks,
Tim

also just following on from that, anyone know what the exact caster is for standard out of box setup (standard front knuckles and one spacer in front & 1 behind upper arm)

just looking at it it looks like its heaps compared to my ep tourer...


On another topic, what does the 23t or 24t middle belt pulley do?
which one is over drive/under drive and which one is standard?

G'day Paul
Caster as you describe is 10.5 deg
24t pulley is for zero split between front & rear tyre diameter & uses the 387mm belt.
23t pulley is for 2mm split between front & rear tyre diameter for overdrive & uses the 384 mm belt. Hope this helps

Regards Paul

For same dia foams use the "24t pulley is for zero split between front & rear tyre diameter & uses the 387mm belt."
If you are going to use the spool just use the stock pulleys.

I have run the stock pistons since I got the car over a year ago. I do change the shock oil, but there is not "best" combo. It depends on the track and your driving style.
