Kyosho knows that M1RR was done, so they didnt bother to introduce a rework version on the EVO...

Did some measuring of the engine last night.

The Mugen places the engine 2.5mm lower than the EVO. There is around 2mm between the bottom of the flywheel and the bottom of the chassis and 4.5mm between the edge of the clutch and the bottom of the chassis.

So you can probably lower the engine by a further 2mm without any problems, and more with the kawahara flywheel and engine mounts.

Default Better laptimes?

Any of you guys with the Evo conversion kit notice improved laptimes compared to the stock V1RR?

the dogbones included in my conv kit is slightly longer than the v1rr kit dogbones, so dont think old universals can fit. but the new dogbones' length seems about same as mtx 3, so perhaps mtx 3's cvds can be used? maybe u can chk with yr fellow x-speedsters?

the use of MTX-3 CVDs on RR Evo required the MTX-3 knuckles and bearings.

The old universals do fit. They are quite close to the end of the outdrive under full compression or rebound however. In fact in the EVO manual it lists the old part number as an option part for the unis for the EVO. I will be testing them out soon and will let you know.

In a very rough and unscientific test I pulled some slightly faster laptimes in amongst a string of much slower laptimes

So take that as you will!

Talking Wooohoooo !

It's finally happened.... my Evo is on it's way !

I ordered with it an OS 12TR (was advised it'd be suitable for my needs, learning to tune a decent engine etc) and a polished RB X12 In-line pipe.

Now i'm poor though

Oh well... can't wait !

Well 2.5mm sounds like it's worth having. Can we then move the engine back far enough to get proper gear mesh? . . . I guess Mr Dremel would fix that?

How much does the Kawahara flywheel and engine mounts give us?

You just got your "S" going really well.
Do we need to watch out for you, now?

I can only hope !

But it wasn't very challenging or much fun racing two Stock cars and the occasional (I mean OCCASIONAL ) Pro-Stock car!

So I decided to jump into the deep end !
