Hope this helps.
You are correct, it is 35 shore.

Hi guys, I am soon to make the switch to Kyosho with the new evo 2. Just curious to know of any build tips before I get the car.

Cheers.

Forgot to mention if you are going to assemble a front diff you may need to grind off some material from the new steering ackerman to avoid it rubbing against the diff other than that all is good

wouldn't that make it a 4d clutch?

I'm about 3/4 through building my evo.2. The only special thing I've had to do is to lightly sand the joins of the 2 speed shoes as the edge was catching on the 2nd gear housing. I also had to try a couple of times to seat the 1st gear properly on its housing, it's not 100% true now (think the gear itself is a little warped) but it was noticably wonky after the first attempt

I'm keen to see how this thing goes on the track, that'll have to wait till next month though

Hi,
Am looking at getting a new nitro tourer. What options are recommend getting for the evo2?
Are there any links/post to setup and parts used from the 2008 worlds from Daniel and Chris's cars?

Thanks

Hey George What's up?

The EVO 2 has the same issue as the EVO. I ran a diff for the regionals and the bellcrank touched the diff a little. I was going to pull it off (I'm not big on things rubbing, well in R/C i mean) but Renato took a dremel and fixed it. After that I didn't like the feel of a diff and took it off anyway.

Default Evo 2

I to assembled my Evo 2 with a front diff but it wasn't the bell crank hitting it was the turn buckle ends that snap onto the ballends on the bell crank that were hitting. I took an exacto blade and trimmed them back just a bit and problem solved. Haven't put the car on the track yet but hoping to do so soon. Expecting rain here in Texas for the next few days so next week at the earliest. Decided to go with a diff instead of the oneway because our local track is short and very technical. Need the diff for some extereme braking from time to time.

Regards,

Speyederjedi

They were running the old car, not enough time to test the new car apparently. As for parts I went with
- Unis front and rear
- Rear adjustable sway bar
- Alloy hex hubs with captured pins
- CF front damper stay
- Rubber belts all round

And I'll be getting the spool and app brake pads this week, and some bearings for the servo saver

Cheers Craig. Any particular brand to get in the option parts? 3racing, atominc? Or is it best to stick with Kyosho?
I've read Kyosho CVDs are better than other brands.

Def not 3 racing!!! All my stuff is Kyosho or Kawahara, but K-factory and KM racing make quality stuff too. I've never tried atominc
