Have you tried different tires? I am thinking the X50 fronts are causing the problem. Try 38 fronts and then widen to 200 on the front.

Just a thought.

go 38 fronts like joe said,and with lighter springs all arount.make small changes at a time.

Am I doing something wrong as I cannot fit my engine onto the chassis the one piece engine mount attached to the engine. I need to fit the engine mount first to the chassis then out the engine in.
Also what is the difference between the grey kit and red clutch shoes?

you have to fit the engine mount first also the red clutch shoe engages harder than the grey shoe

I take my engine in and out with the mount and everything in the car every day I race, just removing the 4 bolts that hold the engine to the mount. You have to wiggle it a bit to get past the brace on the front but it should come out without too much trouble.

I have also installed the engine with the mount attached to it, it can still happen but it's harder and I think I had to remove the side belt.

I just installed my 353 to the one piece first, then removed the side belt and the engine slides right in.

hi guys.do you use a special way to build your shocks?
how much % dumping are you using?
it's like 75% low traction and 0-25% high traction?
or the opposite?
thanks!

The most major reason I heard was that it wasn't highly available before the race, Kyosho had the same problem with the Evolva M3 as well at the worlds because they only brought 2 or 3 with limited parts one or two weeks before the worlds. There were not enough dramatic changes for drivers to give up a car they know works (older evolva) to try it.

The next major reason I can think of is that the geometry really isn't any different, there are some cuts here and there but overall none of the weight has moved around much. The big enhancement in steering is from using the evolva servo saver assembly which is just a different ackerman setting than from the evo wc. The 2d clutch is cool, but I run a Sirio clutch anyway. The rear arms geometry is changed but only because they screwed the pivot balls out 2mm and you can do that on the old car. The 2 speed is just from the evolva, I can't remember having problems with the aluminum based gears.

3rd reason, the evo2 is not as complete as the evo wc. I still recommend upgrading from the evo wc to an evo2 wc by buying the few parts it requires until the evo2 wc is available if for no other reason than to get the front/rear universals and light driveshafts.
