Just not too sure how long the puny servo can last though
I've been running a Futaba S3003 ($25) servo on my throttle now for nearly 2 years in my VoneS....not a drop of trouble

Just back from track. Definitely one of the best game of my history. The EVO was like running on the rail and very forgiving. No need to modify to M1RR to make it turn. Basically wonderful for stock set-up.

Too tired to type any more. I think this babe will be staying in my home for quite a while.

V-One S Racer are u really gonna run an OS at Lilydale?! That is surley a JP & Rody track! I know it frustrated the Hell out of JC when he ran his OS there. Pretty much finished building my EVO and it weighs about 1750g with the kit tyres and conversion kit on. I have one question though why in gods name are the stock tyres the same diameter shouldn't they have a 4mm split?! Seems crazy to me.

I would just like to say anyone getting an EVO i would really reccomend you get a AAA Rx becuase i tried to use my Sub C cell hump pack and it didn't fit and it had no chance of fitting in. So i got a AAA pack and it fit like a glove so i certainly think that it was designed for a AAA Rx. But i'm not sure about claims that it was 50% lighter tho. I weighed em both and the Sub C cell was 92g and the AAA was 60. Just my thoughts

As Manticore said, it sounds like too much oil. Also, you might use some gasket goo on the housing.

That is wierd my Venom 1100mah hump pack fitted in with no problems. How did you get the AAA pack to fit in, mine has to be taped into position?

My hump pack is 97g and my AAA pack is 52g so that is a 47% weight saving!!

I agree Diva!! I did some more testing on the weekend (racing is rained out )

Used the 35 shore rear and front and it worked great! I was a little surprised since my old car hated tires that soft. Rear wear was brutal tho, not very balanced.

I am still amazed at the corner speed of the car. It feels like an electric car the way it transitions and it holds corner speed in a nice fluid arc rather than the front and rear fighting like the old car felt. I actually am using 8 degrees caster and the thing turns in incredible!

The more I run it the more you can push it and it just responds. When it stops raining I might actually get to run a race meet!
