when using the front diff, will the evolva M3 style ackerman plate still hit the front diff? running an original RRR and wondering if i should convert to evolva ackerman plate to run the front diff.

Thanks

Hey guys if you want a weight reduction and you run a spool try using the spool from the V One S111, its plastic, I ran it with no problems, that must shave off a few grams, and while I'm here anyone got any quick fixes for a loose rear end, I have to be careful exiting turns as my rear tends to loose traction and spin around, i currently run 30k oil in the rear diff, any one line answers would be great.

1. Disconnect rear sway bar.

2. Put 10k lube in rear diff, (only fill it about half full).

3. Move lower arms hinge pins closest to chassis plate.

4. Softer Shore rear Tires. (all recomendations for low traction situations in no paticular order).

more rear toe-in can help, up to around the 4 degree range is fine.

Cheers for the quick info guys I will try it out for this weekend, also just wondering if anyone else was dissapointed that the Evo2 WC didn't have the fancy white writing on the upper deck like in all the photos, I like my bling you see.

I don't think they could get it to stick to the carbon cheaply enough to make it worthwhile. I have the KM top deck that had a logo on it but the first fuel to spill on it took care of that. The JLR logo on the side of those black starter boxes comes off with fuel too. If you don't cut it, it won't stay on.

Ti front shaft
Ti upper screws
Futaba 9452 and 9551 servos... There is a lot of weight there.
Shorten servo wires
Alum front spool
Ceramic bearings (I dont really use them anymore though)
Lipo battery (1300 mah)... Bigger battery is totally unnecessary... and yes I use a Novak regulator and an on/off switch.
Small/light receiver: I use a Spektrum 3520
Hi Scott,

Can you confirm the part numbers for the titanium bits? Are they Kyosho parts or after market?

Thanks.
