Beautiful car Ed, once I have some $$ to spare, I will be converting to the evo spec. I don't really need the whole conversion kit, just the gears, upper deck, and servo mount. Does anyone sell these 3 items all together?

Nitropimp,
Nice pic's . . . you've done well.

Rob Hochberg,
You could just change the .8M gears if you want but there's a bunch of other front end stuff that changed - I doubt you could just install the upper deck, and servo mount.
Remember the EVO front bulkheads are closer together, there's now a steering post, the one-way is narrower etc. etc.

In fact, with the EVO conversion kit, pretty much everything is new/different forward of the rear suspension and 2-speed assembly.

do you have to run different off set rims?
I did the conversion and the rear is to wide, got the pivot balls screwed all the way end and still it's to wide.
was able to use the kyosho rear swing shafts and wheel adapters, could that be the problem?

Default Fuel consumption

FINCHY:
How many minutes do you get on one tank with your Rody RB?
I'm having a hell of a time trying to tune it to go more than seven minutes. Is that even possible with the Rody?
Appreciate your response

No, I used regular rims. I did have to use mugen wheel adapters but I used Kyosho's rear swing shaft. Can you take a pic and post it being to wide?

I'm running at 270 degrees already. Just so you know, I was getting at least 8 minutes out of it before. Didn't change anything and all of a sudden its gulping down fuel!
