Well AMGRacer I'll second that motion. I screwed my chances at a decent result at the QLD titles. The car needs alot of setup to be done. And then of course we have the guru's from TKA tell you how to set the car up. The funny thing is that they had not even seen the kit until I showed up on Friday with it.
Did not one of the TKA guys post here that they had a conversion kit AND a new kit?

Yeah AMG that's right, but they didn't race the titles, just smerced at us unfortunate drivers that had a really bad weekend. All you can do is cop it on the chin and start from scratch. But the EVO is the car with the most potential, honestly in the short time I've had it each time you drive it you discover something that the RR just could not cope with.

What do you need to know about that part Luis. (Dont have the manual handy) It is a 3mm x 3mm set screw that screws through the 2 speed shoes and engages the small cylinders that ride on the 2nd gear adapter. There are no instructions as to how to adjust this setscrew. I found that even if you adjust the shoes out even a tiny amount they bind on the 2 speed housing and stop it rotating properly. I left the screws into the shoes just enough to stop them rubbing on the 2nd gear housing.

OK, well the setscrew engages the little cylinders inside the 2 speed shoes. As you tighten the setscrews down it opens up the gap between the 2 speed shoes when they are "static". This then pushes the shoes out towards the 2nd gear housing to accomodate for wear as the shoes age. The new 2 speed material is much softer and therefore will wear quicker meaning that this adjustment is required to keep the enagament point the same.

Had about 3 hours on the car this afternoon and the more I drive it the more I like it. It's very different on the gas earlier and corner spped is greatly improved. Still got a long way to go with setup to optimise the car but all I can say I could not go as fast in the RR as the Evo. Even though I didn't do well at all at the qld's, I noticed that the lap times drop considerably with the new car.
