I like the option of having more than 3 adjustments, when I used the original sway bar set up

Just curiously would like to know if anybody has tried the new Kawahara shock towers for the EVO. ( there is a front and rear tower). I was just wondering if you had to use the old R rear end stuff or does these item allow you to use the RR rear end ( not the floating bits, but sway bars) . Any info would be appreicated.

i have both kawahara shock towers (F&R)

you need to use the R rear cover and you need to use the R rear sway bar set unless you get the kawahara rear blade type sway bar set.

the best part of the shock towers is that it allows you to make half hole adjustment on shock position.

Finchy good to hear from you! Hope all is going well with you. I have the Kawahara rear tower which I hope to test soon. I am currently testing the Kyosho alloy rear shock tower, the R style one.

Also I am testing the kawahara rear swaybars, but I think you might need one of these for Brendale. Or at least the new "hard style" swaybar from Kyosho.

Also you really should get the G4 belts, these things are kick ass.

Lastly I bought the 26T side pulley recently and it came with some interesting setup advice:

27T pulley = mild initial steering with better high speed cornering
26T pulley = medium effect
25T pulley = good initial steering with better low speed corner response.

So I guess you should go with the 27T at Brendale.

AMGRacer, are your tests base on using same front and rear tire diameters or are you using the necessary split when using 26T and 25T pulleys for 1:1 overdrive?

Bugger - I thought the G4 side belt was for the 25T pulley.
I really like the 25T front pulley since trying it on the "R". The more even tyre wear helps maintain some consistancy of handling.
I'm needing to consider Lilydale and imagine that Brendale is much more flowing. While Lilydale is large (long straight) it still has a fair bit of twisty stuff.

We ran the front tyres down to 52mm at Lilydale last Sunday and the car was handling great.
The engine was tragic, however.

Where did the 26T come from?

These are not my test results, it is the advice from the instruction sheet that came with the 26T pulley from Kyosho.

The advice assumes that you have the tire split correct. Ie. 0, 2mm or 4.5mm as appropriate.

The 26T is a Kyosho "Team" part, only available in alloy.

I was actually quite surprised with the advice that came with the pulley which is why I thought I would share it.

You could possibly get the G4 belts in a smaller side belt size (Manticore can you confirm this?)
