I just would like to see a pic of the different bulkhead arrangment hole thing and then I can see if I'm on the same page as everyone else or I'm off with the ferries.

If you look closely at the EVO conversion kit pictures you will notice a narrowed front chassis plate, longer front arms and longer dogbones. This alteration will change the front end roll centre and also stop the front from pitching so easily.

The second change is that the top arms now mount into a screw on bracket rather than directly into the bulkhead. This theoretically could mean that the front roll centre could be further tuned with different brackets by raising and lowering the front arm mounting position.

Another change is that due to the longer front arms the front bulkheads are now closer together meaning a more narrow diff and slightly lower rotating mass. Also it appears that the mounting "knobs" on the bulkheads are closer together leaning the shocks inwards even futher than they already are on the V1RR. This was a mod tried around 2 years ago by the V1R designer at the 2001 world preliminary race. It effectively makes the spring compression less linear, ie they act more like progressive springs, and also the piston velocity is reduced in the oil making the overall effect of oil packing less noticable.

I think you are right Boycey 18.3 lap by Chris Reade is the Brendale long-track record, posted at the 2002 Qld Title's.

Quote:
I should also say that the two quickest drivers on a normal race day get around the track with a fastest lap of low 19s I will check that also...
A low 19 second lap is very competitive at a club race. The fastest tourer laps this year is a 19.3(i think) with MK, Jeffrey and myself all managing it at one time or another. However if there were a few more cars at our club races and the track got a bit more traction i wouldn't be surprised to see a high 18.

I dont think there are to many kids running at that pace!


A new track record will definatly be posted at this years State Title's and then maybe again at the Nationals. Especially if MK is running the Tourer. We all saw what he did to CR's Moorebank track record.

I also heard a rumor that Simon C will be running the MUGEN!!!

AMGRacer if it's possible could you let me know a couple weeks prior to your purchase of the new EVO or the moment you place the order. I am super keen to get one if possible before the state titles here in QLD. Not neccessarily to run it at the titles but to get some track time and if I like it ( that's really a silly statement). Enter it in the titles. Also do you get your Fantom springs from HK, as today I was told the lhs couldn't get them as the Kyosho 1/8 scale stuff isn't handled by Dawn any more but by Mr Bartolozzi now.

Any help would be appreicated.

Graeme

Tone a new V One RR Evo is on the way, check a few pages back and there is a link that Manticore posted, do yourself a favour and check it out. The car look sweet. I think the link is www.joybox.com.????????. Just look for that link on the previous pages.
