The markings (20,10) on the evolva fuel tank show the cc's of fuel that is still in the tank.

So this is your check point for fuel consumption in case you need to run 5 minutes and try on different carburator restrictors, exhaust pipes and/or headers and so on.

the exhaust tip doesn't seem to reach the edge of the body so oil will go all over the RL tire and other parts attracting dirt and god knows what.

Is there a way to solve this issue without using silicone exhaust extension as i know they alter the engine revs making it not perform as well since it will be a bit restricted.

Thanks

I haven't had that problem with oil and debris as long as I have not set the engine too rich. The exhaust and oil on the track builds traction. The tires love it. But, you can lengthen the little arm of the pipe hanger to move the stinger outside the body.

When you cut the body for the exhaust, don't cut a hole. Make a flap by cutting a "U" shape as if the "U" is laying down to the right. Then fold the flap back so it directs the exhaust out the body. Some exhaust will still get by the flap and on the inside of the body but most will go outside.

Body mt angle is located on the rear body post there are 3 positions to choose from inside setting has less rear dynamic the mid & the outside setting will give you the most
center post position is also best used center location which is the neutral postion of body travel
body mt ht is the 2 screws that is mounted onto the rear body mt the higher the screw the more dynamics of the body giving more steering,rear bite but can also make the car more twitchy n aggressive so you can adjust the settings more to your liking

I wonder if this new 2-piece upper deck is part of the upgrade.
He also seem to run a pressure chamber with a clockwise to anti clockwise twisting to aid in the turns.

Also at the bottom rear there are like body post to the side of the body maybe for reinforcment?

yes just insure you check your shock shaft length f&r after you set your droop to ensure it is not changing the setting when you re-connect your shocks same as for the sway bar all drop settings should be correct when you re-install the sway bar,shocks

Default more grip

Hey guys today we went for the 2nd Testdrive but the track we race at is quite often very dirty so we where drifting heavily in the corners.

I thought of going for softer springs allround and maybe 40 / 45 oil all round instead of 50.

What would you you recommend?

Thanks
