Hmmm, OK. I thought the "FM" prefix indicated a Fantom part.
Anyway, it makes it pretty difficult to calculate the rate without the # coils, though.
Notice that some of the "FMW" prefixed springs don't seem to come in colour sets for front and rear - interesting.

tl2111,

While I'm on these springs . . .

While the Light Blue front's are a bit softer than the standard Black's, the Light Blue rear's are harder than the old Gold rear's.

In fact the old Silver, Black and Gold spring ratings show that their respective rears are about 43% lighter than the front's.

The later Light Blue, White and Pink "F/R sets" show the the rears to be only 24% lighter than the fronts.

I have the EVO kit but not the time just yet to put it together. Has anyone found a site with the full installation manual for the EVO yet not the conversion.
Haven't found an on-line manual.
There should be an instruction manual in the Conversion kit, but not the full manual.
What are you looking for?

I wanted to see if they made any changes to the rear bulkheads in the full EVO kit. It will also have a full parts listing in the back.

Well this is generally not recommended to run your car in water. If you insist on doing this I would recommend that you use balloons with lithium grease used as a sealant along with a zip tie or rubber band.

I have the full kit and conversion kit and I can tell you that all the rear parts and assembly are the same except where it is noted in the conversion manual (follow this closely there are some changes in the 2 speed assembly and the rear shock assembly)

The only exception to this is the rear arms. They are different (they have a scallop cut out of them on the inner side). Their part number is VZ004B.

Does the EVO conversion kit only works for the V1RR or can it work for the V1R also.

Works for all V1 series, except V1S.

V1R you lose the rear mount and centax and front blade bar, but you get the new geometry and lower CG.

Lose the rear mount and centax. Can you clarify "rear mount". Also is that means that I have to go back to the stock clutchbell and can't use the centax. Thanks.

Default tight tracks

for all who has converted to an EVO, or have the EVO kit:

does the EVO kit/conversion perform better in tight track conditions as compared to the normall v-one-rr, or a v-one-rr with a front gear diff?

thanks

i believe it is mainly personal preference and driving style. it is rarely track condition or layout decides what to use, front oneway or not.

We run on a tight medium track here with solid axle front oneway and rear diff and front oneway. one may have faster lap time with front/rear diff setting and the other one may have faster lap time with oneway.

try them and compare which way you prefer most.

To clarify . . . the Evo Conversion kit contains all the necessary parts from the engine forward, including chassis and top plate, one-way, arms, dogbones, steering assy. Also included is new 2-speed clutch shoes, pinions and spurs. While there are front blade bar holders (the plastics), there are no blades. There is also no centax clutch nor any of the rear floating mount suspension of the RR.
You would need to purchase the blades, but you could elect to stay with your original clutchbell and rear suspension.

To put it another way, if you unscrew the engine and rear bulkheads from your V-One R including the diff, layshaft, rear arms etc., then, essentially all the rest of the car is in the conversion kit.

The conversion kit does expect you to have an RR, but the conversion of an R is quite feasible and straight forward.

We bought both the car kit and the conversion kit for exactly this purpose.

Hope this helps.
