Well I took the evo for some local club racing today and had a good time

Just need a little set up help, the car over stears going through the middle section of a sweeper. I only exsperiance this wile on throttle.

Also had to call it a day when the front dog bone got stuck when I nicked a dot at full turn they need to get unerversals made for this,It has cost me a couple of good finish's in the last month.

But other than that the evo is a fun car to drive and is giving those NTC3's fits

Default Popping dogbones

I too have have my share of ejected dogbones. Mine were coming out because the flimsy plastic ball cup on the steering knuckles would pop off going into the turn from the force of it. I have changed to a captured style end such as mugen's, but I used the Traxxas's instead.
I ran it the weekend, and have broken the cup in one of the hubs from the dogbone popping, now I too am in need of parts.
Does anyone know if the K factory parts would fit for the V One R? Are they the same lenght, and width?
My kit is the V one RR evo. Thanks for the needed help.

Default Front Dogbones

Probably one thing you guys should check is the front track width if your continually popping the doggies out. From my experiences running a front track width of 199 mm you should never have a problem, even when there is heaps of steering dialed in.

Sometimes i have even been a bit concerned that the dogbones are a tad tight......

Hope this helps out

Kyle

Actually, I may have been a bit too subtle.
If you look at the original pic, the car is on a HUDY set-up board and the "Y" of the "HUDY" word looks to form fins on the rear of the pipe . . . . anyway.

But Mr Calamari was using one?
Mr Calamari and Manti obviously know their pipes, but I thought "Shark" only produced outlaw versions.

I guess we could always sleeve the stinger, somehow.

Maybe.
Remember that when using the conversion kit the only assembly you really keep is the rear bulkheads together with the suspension bits etc. that are attached to it. Pretty much everything in front of the engine is new/different.
Will the rear end bolt onto a V-One XXX chassis?
The Reflex gears are different, I believe.

What's your set-up and track details?


On the doggies, I usually take a couple of precautions:

Firstly, if you move the wheel to full lock and turn it, you'll find that the doggie will "catch" on the square edges of the pin slot in the axle. I round these edges off with a dremel.

Secondly, we install a small piece of alloy attached to the servo saver which limits the throw of the saver - it will contact the inside of the bulkheads before the doggie gets close to a "pop out" situation.
If I recall, AMG said the old universals will fit.

Of course, with a significant brain fade, all bets are off.

I too have this problem but I fix it using Kyosho's V1R/RR universal. Just make sure to make your front a tad narrower, I believe my front width is 196~197mm.

Agreed - I think they are a bit tight too and was worried about the front bearings.
You reminded me . . . . last race week, between heats, I noticed these two "ring things" on the front dogbone. I first thought the front inner wheel bearing had let go due to the tight dogbones. On close inspection I found the two "ring things" were bearing shields from the wheel bearing. Obviously there shouldn't be two shields there - maybe one.
I can only guess that the robot that assembled this bearing had installed an extra shield instead of a snap ring. Ya just can't trust robots.

My set up

FRONT

Camber 2 deg neg
Caster 8 deg pos
toe out 2mm total
Shocks 80 wht and gold springs
no droop screws and no up travel screws
sway bar flat
tires Speedmind 40 shore

REAR
Camber 2.5 deg neg
Toe 2 deg in each wheel
Shocks 60 wht and black springs
no droop screws and no up travel screws
no sway bar
Tires Speedmind 40 shore

I do like a softer set up and with lots of suspension travel

Track is Small to Med. its a Oval Bowl like Daytona, The Sweeper is usually from a banked turn into a flat infeild, back straight is about 120-130 ft average lap times are in the 13-16 sec.
the real fast guys do it in 11-12s

As far as the universals are conserned I may give it a try. as far as the doggies popping out, only when I make a turn at full lock and bump the barrier does this happen. It has happed twice during the mains and about less than a min to go and I am trying to catch 1st place guy or trying to keep 1st place.
Basicaly I am pushing the car harder than I usually do
