If you use the Kyosho std manifold, it will be close (depends on the belt tension). If you use MAX or others manifold that have bigger external diameter, the belt will sure touch/rub the manifold. like the car in the picture.... (that is mine friend's car. he just cleaned for me to take those pictures.)

We run that car 2 days already and the belt condition seem OK even though it have been rubbing. Time will tell.

now that car's a beaut... just to check, your screws don't look stock, did you get them individually or does someone sell the hex screws in a kit... Thanks
I am pretty sure individually. May be 2 month or so later, Speedmind will have a complete set out. Is a good car.

thanks Jason
he bought it from Japan ( private import )He pay something like YEN 30900 plus postage and sale tax. not really sure.

But his comments was " they fixed the EVO's problem, finally!!!"
The gearing now is much better, suitable for bigger track and he love the new rear set up. He said the cornering speed/ steering is a lot better than EVO too.

I will peronsally wait few more weeks until I see more on the track.

kit, what is wrong with the Evo's steering? Mine turns on a dime. Just curious. Is this comparison based on the same setups or newer steering geometry?

Because I own an RR and I know it's faults. In the RRR they improved it and you can clearly see it, would you like me to give you part numbers??????

Hi there, nothing REALLY wrong on the EVO. the 3R can adjust the row centre on the front/ Rear and the new steering block is much stronger. Also the plastic feel stronger/ less flex.
Depends how serious yr racing, it may or may not make any differences.
Keep the EVO
