My Evo2 is new and I have it pretty dialed. Check your track widths at both ends and make sure the dog bones or CVD's arent binding. If this works then try your front diff again and see if thats the problem. Good Luck!
Thank you kyo i will try this way!!

Take the side belt off and check if the binding is in the front or rear of the car.

Definetly check your dogbones arent binding as a few people have had this problem depending on your wheels. Take out the o-rings if they are.

Let us know what you find and we can help you further.

Didrace,

Sorry to hear you got scammed but maybe I can help point you in the right direction. First thing you may want to do is cut out the small cross-member on the front of the chassis. This should give your car more flex in the front and better steering. As far as other parts I would recommend replacing the front dogbones with the CVD's, also try and get the titanium shaft shocks, and aluminum hex hubs. Can't think of much else I would change. Some like the rear blade sway bar, I personally prefer the wire type. You could also get the lightweight (hollow) 2 speed shaft but I prefer the solid one. I have the RRR Evo 2 and it is already basically an Evo 2 WC. The only things I haven't changed out are the WC 2 speed shaft and rear blade sway bar. Hope this helps. Maybe someone else has some other suggestions???

Regards,
Speyederjedi

Thank god someone has replied to my question and helping me a lot..

Thanks Speyederjedi...

Its been a few days now i was researching what they have changed and i have some questions for some things they have changed because it seems that every year they have to change something to get more money..

Lets start from the v-one rrr version..
ok to convert the rrr to evo they have changed the upper deck and changed the position of the servo from laydown to upright.. and if you see now on the evolva m3 they use the laydown position because some people prefer the laydown position..so the question is why did they changed the upper deck and the servo mounting position? what is the change in perfomce?

also the other thing they have changed is the rear bulckheads and the only reason i can think without looking on the new and old ones is because they use the new 2 speed axle. but on the other hand they could have use they same stuff and just change the brake hub to aluminium..
so again what the point of changing most of the rear end ? why did they do it? what is the difference in perfomnce from the rrr?

another thing they have changed is the shock body and the springs..
ok for the springs i can understand the body shock why?

also the have changed some other stuff like new spur gears and new o rings but again i am thinking if i spent 290 dollars to change most of these parts does it worth it? or is it better to buy the new evo2?
i dont know i am totally confused...

Didrace,

On the question regarding the change to the laydown servo on the upper deck for the RRR EVO. The change was for a lower center of gravity (CG). I didn't care for it because it put the servo horn and linkage out to the side of the kit where it was exposed to getting hit. The kit did come with a small plastice brace to protect the servo but i just didn't like the setup.

I may be wrong on your question about the rear bulkheads but I believe they are the same from the RRR on up to the RRR Evo 2. It's my understanding that the Evo 2 simply has longer rear control arms so you don't have to run 2 degree offset tires. The reason for the lightweight 2 speed shaft is for less rotating mass as that shaft is hollow.

As far as the shocks go, I'm not sure why they went with a different shock body. Maybe someone else can shed some light on the reason for that.

On the new 2 speed setup for the Evo 2, it is from the Evolva M3 and is simply smoother than the the Evo 1 version. As far as the new 2D clutch setup, the verdict is still out. I initially didn't like it but have since added 2 grub screws to each weight and have gotten it to work to my liking. Without the weights it just didn't have enough snap on initial engagement. I have a few motors and on my other Sirio Evo 4 STI I am running the CRF clutch setup from the 07 CRF WASP .12. That setup has a mutch stiffer spring and 3 weights and seems to work quite well with that particular motor. I am thinking of getting the Sirio clutch setup as well.

As far as going out and buying the Evo 2, I guess it just depends on how serious you are about racing and your pocket book. If you're just getting into it you may want to get your feet wet with this RRR and then little by little build it up to the EVO 2. If you have been racing for a while then you may want to get the RRR Evo 2 and use what parts you can off the RRR for spares. Hope this helps.

Regards,
Daniel

Didrace,

Just hang in there with the kit you bought. With the right setup that car is still very competetive. One of the Kyosho sponsored drivers here in my area is still running that kit over the Evo 2 and is always up in the front.

Are you running a front diff, spool or one-way? I would recommend starting out with the spool or front diff. If you run the front diff go with 100k diff oil or higher. On your rear diff I'd go 20k or 30k diff oil and on the shocks 40 to 60 shock oil. This should be a good starting point. Let me know if there is anything else you have questions on.

Regards,
Speyederjedi
