Murnan has it, but it's at the same price as the Capricorn site if you convert to USD. I'm looking for some of their gear as well but I'm not willing to pay $118 plus shipping for a piece of carbon for a top deck. I doubt it comes with the Xray tank or much else but I don't know for sure. Maybe it does have the tank and all sorts of plastic bits that make it fit and worth $118.

Evo2 top deck will have to do for now as well as the non $59 brake disc but the $34 lightweight dogbones are pretty trick for a pair considering Xray sells univerals for something around 35 EACH so I may pick those up.

Remember the evo 2 top deck is designed for the evo 2 chassis, whereas the capricorn deck is designed for the old chassis - probably doesn't make much difference, but perhaps capricorn will come out with an evo2 one before long

Haven't had my RRR Evo 2 for too long and was wondering about tire size. I noticed my car seems to handle much better with say a 61mm front and 63 mm rear vs 59mm front and 61mm rear. Is this due to flex in the foam allowing for more traction? With no other changes done the car is quicker with the shorter tires but doesn't seem to handle as well as with the taller tires. While I realize gear ratios come into play with how fast you want to run is there an advantage either way? Shorter or taller? Do any of you have a starting point at which you work from when it comes to tire size? Just needing a few pointers in this dept.

What's the stock setting for the rear sway bar? Is that flat as well?

For San Antonio, if it is still traction roll central I would run 57mm front / 59mm rear for qualifiers and work the roll centers for traction plus or minus but I like that lightning fast turn in and reaction.

The taller tires flex more like you said, and can compensate and kind of dull the car a bit which might feel like it has more traction. The foam is a bit softer when it's taller too because the wheel isn't supporting it as much.

The stock setup seems to be for ultra low grip - 35sh tyres, 2nd lowest RCs, thin diff and shock oil, etc. Apart from the tyres, how have people found it? does the car just like to be soft or have you been changing a lot when the grip or speed of the track is med-high?

95% complete, just need to mount some shocks, roll bars, and some other minor things.

Novarossi,

What clutch setup is it that you are using? From the photos it's not stock. Kit looks ready to rock. Nice motor and pipe selection. I'm currently running and IDM .12 in my RRR Evo 2 but am anticipating the arrival of my Sirio Evo IV motor and pipe setup. Please let me know how the clutch set up works out. I may be looking to change over from the stock setup. I need a little more punch from my clutch.

Regards,
Speyederjedi

From the picture it looks like he is using the Sirio Power Clutch.

If you don't have enough punch from the IDM engine with the Kyosho clutch, I think you don't have your clutch setup properly. Either that or your engine isn't running right. The IDM engine has sick bottom end power. If you are using the stock EVO 2 clutch, you should have the 2D clutch. Most I know of have been running that with the stock spring and 4 fly weights. I normally have used the grey shoe with that setup and usually have to detune the setup with the IDM engine.

I also have a Sirio EVO 4 STI engine and run it with the power clutch and it is also very punchy, but a bit more linear on its power band.

Hello

I bought a RRR Evo 2, but I want to know which clutch is better 2D or 3D?
I saw in the RRR Evo WC edition has the 3d Clutch.
