Well, first time out for the EVO, It looks promising so far, it has a lot more turn in steering as everyone expect, and EVO did won the A final in Moorebank on Sunday but not me this time wrong tyre choice cos me traction roll which after race inspection have found rear end top link has bent(yet again)! will address it.

Overall I'm happy with the car for the first time and with the solid diff at the rear the car just hooked around the corner(little bit too much at this stage)and sugguest to use status 2.1 instead of 300M on high speed track. it actually look and feel ballistic on track and as AMG said more testing could only improve, so more report coming soon.

i believe MTX3 still has lower CG. the upper deck of EVO sits taller then MTX3.

Just thought I'd note a few final build experiences of the Evo.

The parts fit is very good with no hand fitting required apart from the servo saver linkage as described in the manual. We don't use the plastic brake stopper because it . . . errr . . breaks! The trimming of the rear floating mount, I didn't do - mostly because we run TC bodies - besides it hits my set-up system, so I surgically removed the ends completely and saved a little weight.

AMG noted some hard plastics and his lack of muscle tone. While I ragged him on this, there are indeed some hard plastics there. I confess I used grease on some of those screws, myself. I also noticed that some of the countersink holes in the Shimo chassis were contacting the heads of the screws and this made it appear harder to get the screws in.

The front upper arm pins were not straight.
The front lower arm pins were not straight.
The front bulkheads slightly splayed outwards at the top, indicating to me that they were not square on their bottom mounting face.
The plastic roll bar "legs" were too narrow at the mounting faces - they needed to be pulled apart to mount on the top plate - no biggie.
The clutch inner bearing needed a lot of shimming to get the bell clear of the shoe - about 1.5mm.

The rear upper arm 6.8mm pivot balls have me puzzled. When installed as per the instructions, the flange of the ball sticks out to far and would cause the upper links to bind. I just installed the balls backwards to get past the issue, but would like to know if I've missed something, here.

When assembling the rear arms, I used the lower shock mounting positions as per the instructions with the intent of starting out with the kit set-up. This turned out to make it impossible to get the ride height down to something reasonable and I subsequently moved them - that fixed it.
As mentioned previously, the front doggies appear too long.
I even used the Kyosho #500 shock oil 'cos it "looked" like about 60 weight - anybody know the actual equivelent?
I measured the engine mount height. They look to be exactly the same height as the V-One R. I might just mill them down.

Bear in mind that a lot of the build was done during the wee hours of Sunday morning, so the brain may not have been working too well.

The above is just notes on the build, not really complaints. I don't know how other cars compare as far as build goes, but I'm pretty happy with this one.

We only ran two tanks through it on Sunday - I was surprised to find that we didn't even need to adjust the clutch or the 2-speed. Even on a strange tyre mix, using a 300M (we usually use a S60) the car looked quite competent.

I have a good feeling about this car.
Ryan, is Lilydale running on Sunday 24th?
