But you still have to know the proper settings & differences between the 2D & 4D & learn the benefits. I prefer the 4D on high grip & 2D on low grip

Yeah, Yeah!

At the Nats and the GLC I tried the Mugen clutch(3 shoe pined) and it worked pretty well. I know Hammer and O.V. had it too. If I am not mistaken, Aaron was running that clutch as well. Not for sure on that though.

Default Tire trueing

Guys, when you true your tires, do you cone it (outside bigger, inner smaller)or true it flat (same diameter outside to inside) ? And do you set the camber so that the tires wear flat or coned?

Thanks!

You might look into the Alum. front upper arm mounts too.

I true mine with a 1 - 2 degree cone and try to set camber to retain that.

Default CONGRATULATIONS AND THANK YOU FOR SAVING THE NOVAROSSI BRAND FOR ON ROAD USA RACING

I just want to formally congratulate Joaquin (De Soto Racing) for the acquisisition of the distribution from ITALY of the Novarossi Brand of On Road Motors. This is a great moment for avid Novarossi fanatics in On road racing. We will finally now be dealing with a real professional, on-road racer himself who has all the best interest of stocking our motors and parts all year round. All those who agree with me, let's show our support by asking for the Novarossi Brand at our Local Hobby Shops.

FINALLY!

Thank You Joaquin (and Paolo M of course) for saving the Novarossi Brand in the American On Road Market!

I understand there is a huge selection of NOVAROSSI merchandise that has arrived. These novelties were never imported into the USA by the past distributor. Ask your Local hobby shop to order this stuff!

One-stop-shopping for the jewels of RC racing!

Good Luck with the new brands and distributorship!

See you guys in Texas, Kissimee, Ft Myers, etc, etc!

Paulie B

Is there a replacement for the carbon spacer that comes with the Option Aluminum front upper arm mount? Mine came with 0.5mm and 1mm thick carbon spacer to be put under the alum mount, and I broke one of the 0.5mm spacer. Also what's the effect of rising and lower the inner arm mount?

Thanks.

Default Evolva M3 Evo set-ups

Hi folks
Am new to Kyosho as have raced Serpent forever!!!
I am not ditching Serpent but as I am a shop (well I run a shop...it would be one clever shop to be able to use a keyboard!!) I also sell Kyosho and wanted to help a couple of guys who are interested in making a change over in makes.
I have tried in vain to get a useful 'starting point' for the Evo. I mean to say, Collari's set=up will ONLY be used on that track..there is no other like it??
We have got the 966 working well here in the Uk on low to medium grip tracks, and know the car inside out.

Would somebody be good enough to post or e-mail me with a set-up or two to try.
Of course I want everything...easy to drive with fantastic grip levels...I don't want much.

I look forward to, and thank you for, any help that you can give.

Cheers
Mike
