Default Front diff

The front diff out drives are shorter than the rear.
Kyosho part number is VZ118.

Default Car Decision

OK, I am looking at getting a new Nitro car. I have had serpent and Mugen in the past, but I a friend has the V One RR Evolution that I am considering. What are the pros and cons of this car.

Thumbs up V1REvo Ps & Cs

It's pricey and parts aren't the easiest to get, to start off with. I believe it will have the same negatives as its predecesor; braking is twitchy and it's tough on tires.

I have the conversion almost done and should be running it sometime this week.

The lowering of the front servo should make it easier to drive, or recover with some improvement on handling. It will still need a lot of front toe out and rear tow in, just like everyother version.

This is strictly based on the front end's new layout; placing the front servo on its side beneath the upper plate and the lengthing on the suspension arms.

The new gearing should be interesting. I can't see why it would need it. Other than Kyosho thinking the old gearing combination with the R/RR was off or the Evo can handle more.

Heck, it sounds good. I'll let you know what I find out!

The Evolution has tons of steering. The most I have ever seen in a car. Twitchy or not depends on which body you are using. The new gearing is supposed to be smoother than the old and provide a lower gear ratio. If you run on a rough surface with a lot of debris it's best to go back to the old gearing because the .08 gears are a lot more fragile.

Thanks for the tip & insight!

Is two degrees out in the front and three in on the rear a good starting point?
