I want to convert it back to 1:1 until I get myself a tyre truer so that I don't have to run the diameter split.


Thanks.
pulley and belts are the same on RR or R

.... alright.... now i'm confused. I've read that the RR was overdriven at the front and to change the front drive ratio back to 1:1 you had to change to a different pulley and belt.

I assume the Evo is still overdriven?

Use the 27T front pulley to eliminate the O/D.
You'll also need the longer belt - VZ070 Drive Belt 378.

I expect the Evo and the RR both use the same O/D - with luck I can tell you on Monday.

I know I shouldn't ask this but are you really, really sure.
That's a hell of a coincidence.

(Hope they don't read this in that throttle servo thread.)
Yeah they are dead for sure.

Hooked up my charger to charge the battery (thru the two way switch) and heard a electrical frying noise. 2 dead servo and the RX unit is fine. Very wierd. Both servos were attached with rubber grommets and working fine 30 minutes before. I think the switch must have shorted the wrong way or something.

Anyway I have gone to my backup crappy servos, so the car will venture to the track tomorrow

EVO and RR both have the 25T pulley supplied and a 25T pulley sized belt. To convert you need the parts that Taylor-Racing mentioned above.

Another. Guys I tried some detailed pics but my camera just sucks the big one on anything close up. We have to wait for "Manticone" to get his conversion done

Conversion kit rundown:

Nice graphite deck, better looking than the stock unit and more stiff.
The chassis is a damn work of art. Recess for lowering the throttle servo right down. Screws are countersunk at least 1mm into the chassis. Beautiful.
BEARING for the steering shaft. They are 6x10x4 jobbies.
All the required hardware included, took me about 3 hours to get where I am at right now.

You just did that to piss me off didn't you.

. . . waiting . . . . waiting . . . . waiting . . . . c'mon Monday

On a serious note, can the servo's be repaired?

AMG,
Is the top deck the same height above the chassis? - i.e. will a RR left side brace/tensioner fit?
I mean, like a 3Racing one or something.
