FYI: Kyosho makes 23t pinions. Has been for all the time I have been running the car.

You're right, I measured under 1700 with such tires. Do you think 1725 is optimal for handling ?

Do you think the brass battery cover will make a difference in handling (adds 30g to the weight) ?

(It will take a long time before I can get back to track, they just closed here. But it's nice to have the car ready... )

1725 is optimal for being ROAR legal :P

Personally, I have run my car in the 1650 range and in the 1850 range and I almost always like the car heavier like 1780 except at Toledo I wanted it at 1730.

Oh, here the minimum weight is 1700 (I think it's the EFRA weight). Thanks for your thoughts about the weight.


The car is now ready, with used tires it weights 1685g with the body on and tank empty and without the transpoder which is light I think!

It is going be interesting to try a car that easily 100 grams lighter, maybe even 200.

I don't know the rates of the springs as it isn't very important to me. There are only 3 springs. LT blue, Med blue, and DK blue. Lt is the softest and DK is the stiffest. I just make the relative changes as I see needed.

technically you can get confusing and run the black/silver and gold springs too. supposedly one is progressive and one set isn't.. I'm like Scott though, I try it and if it is fast then I run it. Black fronts and gold rears can be very fast on certain tracks, much better than any of the blues.

He had asked about the EVO 2 springs so I only talked about the blue springs.

Really the medium blues are basically the only spring I use out of all of the ones available.

Corally makes a really nice set of springs with actual measured pound ratings that fit the car too if you want to try 17-40lb springs.

By comparing the exploded views on Kyosho's site it ain't too difficult doing it yourself
- chassis
- top plate
- rear tower
- clutch
- rear arms
- rear uni's
- servo saver
- screws
