One other thing I have noticed with the EVO is that with the stiffer plastic i have yet to loose a dogbone instead i have warped and broken rims and this never occured with the R the dogbone would simply pop out. Also for the first time yesterday the dogbone locked but that's no biggie, quickly solved by turning the wheel. If only i could get a motor that runs i'd be set .

See, we need to apease the bearing god's.
Sacrifice your engine . . . $32.50.

Could you have a look for the bearing part numbers and more importantly the sizes/spec's. I'll see if I can russle up a few, locally.

finchy, 18/22 is too high?? I heard it needs 24t conversion.

Hahahahah yeah it might be

I reckon using this swaybar from the fantom might be the ticket to get a stiffer rear end, and also to avoid hitting the shocks!

OK, the things I don't like about rear blade bars:

They're invariably heavy, mounted too high and have too much "slop".
. . . but they are easy to adjust, so I'd like to be convinced.

In full competition most people use 57mm tires. I personally use 60mm but I suck.

You can get a lesser motor to carry the 57mm tires with the 18/22 gearing and any motor like the S3 and NS12 should be able to carry 17/21. The motor will be screaming with this gearing, but fast.
