I'll say this much about the +Evo... that was the easiest, and most fastest hingepin and control arm swap I ever had to do! Front and rear.

I haven't got the evo but can you elaborate on why it's quicker. Has it got something different to the original plus? Even still i reckon it's pretty quick to change a pin or suspension arm on the older +

Well comparing it to my previous car, this car is a joy to work on. Three screws and you have access to both rear hingepins. Three screws again for each front upper pin. Way less than 5 minutes swapping between the front spool and diff. Pretty much the same for the rear.

A good starting point is the setup in the manual check the last pages.

factory set up is a good start but i would replace those daym spings to 1.7 in the front and 1.5 in the rear but if you're just gonna run it on parking lots it don't matter what set up you got it won't handle cause it's too dusty

i usually run the 1.7 front 1.5 rear combo on smooth track... on that type of track i start with 1.8 front and 1.6 rear with team magic's springs i don't actually know it by colors, but it should say it by the thickness of the springs also.. 600 oil mugen and stock pistons good luck

Don't we all If your going to be doing a lot of parking lot bashing they usually aren't the smoothest of surfaces. So i would suggest to drill your shock pistons out to 2 holes at 1.2-1.3mm each. This helps with the sudden impact that these types of surfaces throw at you. The bigger the hole the easier it is for the oil to go through so when you go over a little imperfection at 80+km/h the shock would react very quickly so if the shock can compress easier it will soak up the bumps better, i hope i didn't confuse you.

I would then use 50-60wt oil in them after drilling the holes out with the blue 1.7mm spring up front and the purple 1.5mm spring in the back but lately i have been running 1-2mm spring sizes less all round to try and compensate for little to no chassis flex

hope that helped

New to the TM world, is everything included in the evo upgrade kit to make the g4s into the +evo, or are there additional parts that need to be bought? Trying to save a buck!!
