Good eyes! I didn't notice that.

I wonder if this new 2-piece upper deck is part of the upgrade.

It uses the same offset as the Mugen.

Not sure if that is called OS1 or OS2. These names are used by Seprent because they used a different wheel offset to Kyosho and Mugen a few years ago.

They use OS2's as do almost all current cars.

OS1 are the almost always Serpent Yellow rims and are almost gone from the market

GRP's on Serpent OEM rims

Santa finally arrived with my EVO

Looks awsome!!!!!

Any suggested setup for a low grip track or should i go for the stock setup which i have in the manual?

Re Throttle / Brake Servo whats the best to run lay down or normal.

Re tyre foams do you normally use same temp front and rear as on my V1 RRR Evo 2 we normally run softer in fronts. Any suggestions of what you guys use would be greatly appreciated. Also what size do you true you tyres and what type of split do you use.

Thanks

I would stand the throttle servo up I like better that way. Plus lamberto runs his car like that also and i don't like mounting my rx so close to the side belt.

As far as tires will use 32 front 35 rear for low to med bite tracks the car is dialed out of the box.

I have a good universal setup that will have you in the ballpark for any track that you go to. It was giving to me by a factory team driver I will post it for you when I get home!! Congats on your new kyosho!!!

As far as hopup I would get the sp quick wheel stoppers front and rear
front universals because they won't fall out like dogbones will

Also if you have the money I would get ti pillow ball (8) they lighten the car up and are smoother and stronger then the steel ones they replace. Remember Any unsrung weight and weight in your drivetrain are your enemy you take it away as much as possible and you will have a faster car that goes for any car.

The car is great out of the box these parts just make better and faster.

Set the front belt to the middle setting or to the 2nd to the tightest setting. Set the rear belt to the tightest setting. Set the side belt so that it is just missing the exhaust manifold. You don't want the side belt to rub o. The manifold because it will wear out faster but you don't won't the side belt set to tight because it will tighen up the drivetrain. The m3 evo draivetrain is super free out of the box even before driving it unlike most of the other cars but it still doesn't have any slop. Kyosho are known for the silky smooth drivetrains and the steering they have.

Do you have ti pillow balls? If not I have some spare. I never built a mugen or kyosho without them.
