Yep.

2) Floating RR rear body post setup vs the R rear shock set, which is better to work with the evo
As far as I can tell there's little difference when using a Sedan body.

3) Lastly who makes/where can I get this new rear sway bar I've seen on the forum "looks like a mugen rear sway bay"
I think it "looks" like the optional bar for the Mugan.

In my experiance

Bumpy tracks or Saloon body go with the R type body posts
Smooth track or lola body go with RR type body posts

I just ordered the ally pully set but really they are for looks. The plastic works and doesnt wear the belts as quick and are cheaper to replace

1/. plastic pulley is lighter, alloy pulley wears fast and will eat up your belt either it is worn or new.

2/. i find the non-floating body mount works better on EVO (lower CG) as the car is more predictable on both LOLA and sedan.

3/. it is from kawahara. it comes together with the rear bulkhead cross member i.e. price tag is awesome too.

Default ALLOY GEARS

HI GUYS...I USE TITANIUM GEARS...EXSPECIALLY ON THE FROMT ONE WAY AND MIDDLE PULLEYS....I HAD THEM FOR AGES AND THEY DONT WEAR AND DONT CHEW BELTS.I USE THE TEAM KYOSHO 26 GEAR ALLOY SIDE GEAR...IT WORKS FINE. I FIND YOU MUST CLEAN UP ANY LITTLE BURS ON THE ALUMIN GEARS...DO THIS AND YOU SHOULD HAVE NO PROBLEMS. I USE THE ALU REAR TOWER FOR BUMPY TRACKS..( THE PLASTIC ONE BREAKS WHEN YOU SLIDE OUT INTO A WALL).....I LAY THE REAR SHOCKERS DOWN AS FAR AS I CAN...THIS WILL TAKE A BIT OF TRACKTION OFF THE REAR...I ALSO USE THE KAWAHARA FRONT SHOCKER POST SO I CAN RAISE THE FRONT SHOCKERS....THIS HELPS HEAPS ON ALL TRACKS........I USE LIGHTER OIL...35 FRONT...30 REAR...THIS CAR STEARS LIKE YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE.....ITS THE EVO BY THE WAY....THE SHIMO ONE WAY IS GREAT....
