Hey Manticore have you had a chance to try out your Evo conversion kit yet. Do you have anything to report.

Hi Sparksy ! i miss you !!!

finchy

not able to touch on the conversion kit yet as I need to make provision for the clutch bell on the main chassis as I am going to run with Mugen clutch.

so Manticore you have to mody the chassis. Is this due to the small nature of the fly wheel. Recently I lightened the standard fly wheel now it's as small as the Mugen one, so I may have to mod the chassis as well. Is this correct.

finchy,

you still need to mill the engine mount to make it shorter so that the engine may sit lower and in that sense, the clutch bell will touch on the main chassis. you need to make a slot there to avoid the clutch bell touching the main chassis.

Thanks Manticore, I'm using Kawahara engine mounts with the motor, what you just said is what I've done to the standard chassis, so at least I'm doing the right thing. Thanks once again Manticore.

You are going without your hobby for your country and we salute you.

*salutes*

I thought you could buy ANYTHING at a pub, generally it fell of the back of a truck?
