Thanks for the lend of the Spur gears too.


Craig, Make sure you mesh your gears as tight as possible. There should be no gap at all but they should still spin freely. If you do this you shouldnt have any stripping problems.

The 2d Clutch is awesome. Never had any troubles and mine is plenty fast enough.

Im going to try the Sirio cluth at the Nats though. Just havent had the time to try it at moorebank yet.
The mesh was ok to start with but I hit a slower car (the hazard of ending up in the c-final) and the engine moved. I think I'm going to mill out the chassis a bit more around the holes so I can use countersink washers like most other cars, they should bite a bit harder than the button heads. Ric was saying he drills out the engine mounts and taps a 4mm thread into them, thats a nice idea too

I have looked at the ackerman on the new evo 2 and B n C look very similar which gives you less initail steering A or C

Thanks in advance

The ackerman effect is reduced when the wheels are less angled, so you will find minimal impact on initial steering by changing the plates. I cant remember which letter locates the ball joints the furthest forward but when using a spool you will get the most steering with the arms located in that position, followed by the middle one, followed by the rear.

Easiest way to get more turn-in is to stand your front sway bar up

Craig Thanks
But I want less initial steering that way I can have my steering throw turned all the way up on full lock I found the car had alot of steering so I was thinking ackerman rather than reducing the steering throw

Try move it back one position, I think that should be C from kit which is B-forward. Like caster it's a very sensitive adjustment so even though the holes are only ~.5mm different you'll feel it on the track

Make sure your brake cam isn't binding in the bulkhead, this happened to me and I missed a heat taking the bulkhead off and sanding the cam down. Otherwise the kit setup is very good, and a .5mm clutch gap seems about right with the 2d.

With the pulleys in the kit setup, is there any front overdrive or something like that so you need to have a couple millimeters difference between front and rear tyre diameters?

Someone else may be able to confirm this, but off the top of my head I believe the kit comes with 2 front side belt pulleys. A 23t and a 24t. The 24t is your overdrive so you can run shorter fronts. Wish I had the manual in front of me but I think this is correct. Anyone??? Bueller?... Bueller?..... Bueller?....

23t belt 2mm split on tire size commonly used when you have mid to high tire wear
24t belt 1mm split on tire size for very low wear
