But then again I have had mine for over 2 years, it just keeps evolving to a new beast everytime something else comes out.

Randman have you had a chance to drive other nitro cars, I know you are a little picky with the electrics. I remember you had a R2 now its a Yokomo, if I am right. Are you gonna give a R3 a chance, or stick to what you useing now. (I know its off topic)
just curious.

Also I can post a few pics of car if you like
That's a good thing that the car can be converted to the new stuff when new parts are released, good to know that your car is still competitive after 2 years...

I have gone through all of the electrics trying to find the best, right now I'm gonna stick with the SD, but no comment on if I'll have an R3 or not, I dont know yet...

If you have pics, please post em up, I always appreciate pics

I usually dont mind reps, although totally bias, they usually have the best info out there...

Who has the best price on the Evo?

The Evo doesn't really require hop-ups but if your intent on splashing some cash buy things that will make the car stiffer without compromising on weight. Eg Chassi, top deck and side stiffiners.

In my opion the car does need hop ups. It seems the kyosho design team loves to inject large amounts of fat and lard into their cars, making them very heavy. If you intend on racing it competetively you'll to put the car on a strick deit of Ti and some hop up parts. That's my 2 cents worth. By the way I do have an Evo and I do race it competetively. They are a great car but slightly ( Ha ) over weight, some people say to me it's a bit like it owner.
