I always value your advice and like racing with you at the track, can't never catch up to you but keep on trying.

Hope to see you at the track on Nov. 8th.

I think I can make that, I was thinking about going up to Dallas for the pro series final but it's too long of a race for me right now.

I should have my diff parts by then as well so I can finally test that out for myself and see what the hype is. Tommy D says he hasn't stopped running it since trying it at that track so it must be halfway decent.

Thats only Because Tommy D SR. is scared to change it . J/K SR.

I'm Also Gonna do some Diff. testing at a Tighter & lower grip track this weekend.

I know I liked the diff. alot better in the NT1 when I ran that car. But with the Evo Wc, It has so much more steering then the NT1, I have yet to try it.
I just hate giving up all that rotating mass , going from the solid to the diff.

According to the manual use VSW007 with the zero offset rear end.

Leave the dogbones in!!

Its not enough to weigh all the rotating parts and compare them. Even if one is lighter than the other it can sap more power as it depends on its diameter.

A lighter flywheel with a bigger diameter will sap more power than a heavy flywheel which is much smaller in diameter

Cheers

Gregory,
YOur not alone. I shimed the rear arms As well as the upper fronts. Also a couple of our locals here do it as well. As Far as the Evo2, I couldn't tell you if they fixed it with the newer plastics.
hope this helps

its the same for the evo2... my rear and upper arms developed slop after 3 months but it did not seem to affect the handling... i shimmed it just in case anyway...

It happens on Mugens too. I think I used electric end bell shims to correct mine. I always shim to make the wheel base smaller.


Pass you soon...
