And . . . can we go back to text mode, please.
Those signs are hard to do and the big ones really bugger up the page.
Maybe I'll just get a bigger monitor.

The Evolution has:

Lower CG - achieved with lower engine mounts and a top deck redesign so the steering servo and receiver sit lower. Slightly more centred weight as well due to the throttle servo being more centred.

Redesigned front end geometry - the front arms are 4mm longer and it is possible that the front end roll centre will become changable by using optional front top arm mounts. Also the centre post style steering gives you ability to adjust ackerman more easily and incorporates an adjustable servo saver.

0.8 module gears - more efficient gears with a more finer adjustment of final ratios possible.

"the basic difference" is the position of the Steering Servo and the 0.8 gear system comes as standard feature.

In my opinion the V1RR is great since you DO NOT need any hopups. There are no durability issues that need to be solved with hopups etc. However hopups which are useful are:

Front universals
Hardened rear hingepins
Lightweight stuff

This car is a tank and extremely durable, I have raced one for 2 years and I have yet to break an arm. I have busted spur gears (due to my own stupidity and lack of loctite) and worn out parts such as shock ends and other moving joints, but never busted anything other than the front bumper and bumper supports. This includes belts and pulleys. I have damaged the belts with rocks (split them) and bent the pulley teeth, but never badly enough to stop the car running under racing conditions. This has happened probably 4 times in 2 years.

No news about a different clutch system on the new car? I read somewhere that there is a new design clutch that was coming with this car....

The 2-shoe comes standard, as well.

Novarossi I think what they are talking about is the new 4D clutch, which from what I understand is essentailly the 3D clutch with the finer 0.8 gear modules on it. Please someone correct me if this is not the case.

Lets hope the specs posted on the Kyosho site arn't true....

V-One RR EVOLUTION Total Weight Approx. 1900g

I checked the weight of the V-One RR GT for comparison, and this was Total Weight approx. 1,700g

So according to Kyosho, the new car is considerable heavier?

What are the major differences between the Kyosho clutch unit Vs Mugen clutch unit ?

Novarossi funny you should say that, I noticed the other night that the Kyosho site also states that the V1RR GT weights 1900 grms. But mine weights no where near the amount and it's just box stock no light bits on it. Maybe the 1900 grms is just a figure they put there for the sake of it and don't actually weight a built model.
