hard to tell. It took tower almost 1 year to bring evo into US market. Until we see advertisments on magazine, it will be a while.

Not true. Tower had parts for the Evo starting back in about November or so last year.

yes they have servo horns and saver back in november which is used on F2003/evola but other spare parts, like front arms. The arms was available late in spring. (they have them listed on their web site back in December).

Just found a useful spring rate chart for kyosho, mugen and serpent springs. They are in japanese but you should be able to make out what they means.

Yes, the chart was produced by a Japanese Collingwood supporter.

Thanks for the chart, Boner! Taylor, do you guys know how to read the spring ratings? I've always used my XXX-S springs because I had a cheat sheet that had them in order of softest to firmest along with weight tension specs.

Do you have to go by number of coils and their thickness? Or does anyone know how the color order from softest to firmest?

Default 3R Hubs & Knuckles

You should put 3R rear hub, that way you don't have to buy mtx3 drive shaft, bearing, pivot balls and other small parts. Kyosho 3R rear hub will be direct replacement and cheap too, about 5 dollars or less for a pair of rear hub.
I just ordered a couple sets each of the 3R's hubs & knuckles from RC Models_HK. I know NiMo ordered some rears too to test out on, I believe is his FW-05R. I'm gonna give them a shot on the Evo as well and keep you all posted.

If you're interested, check them out at:

well I won't be at the track today, I really wanted to test my set up too. My back is out, so I can't lift anything or sit down without having pain. Also my old radio equipment sold on e-bay so I have to take the throttle servo out and mail it out with the rest of the equipment.

Have fun, I'll try to be there next weekend, thank god I don't have a class on monday, it will give me time to recover.
