Read post #33 of this thread. Here's a link to it -->+Evo parts
If you're in the US go to Wolf's Hobbies. RCManufacory in Asia. Not so sure about Europe.

Personally, I decided on getting the +Evo over the RS since when everything is said and done, the +Evo ends up being quite a value. An RS with the WC kit already costs more than the +Evo.

Finally got some good runs on my car this past sunday at SWR. The car never got out of hand and if it did it was my fault. The car is there now after I put it on the setup board. The engine still needs some work but the car is a joy to drive and makes me feel very confident.

Man I'm kinda depressed with my car now. I was able to run my car tonite but my times were pretty damn slow. I was actually a second faster with my old Tamiya TG10 Mk2 Pro! And that car was using the kit Tamiya FR12R engine.
Still I need to play with the engine a little more as well as setup. Damn

So I guess it's just me again in this thread

Anyways, played with the car's setup a little bit more and am alot happier again. Wasn't able to turn on the AMB so I couldn't get any actual times. I think I have the engine right there; good smoke, good response, good sound, and good temps. Adjusted the clutch a little and that made a definite difference. Cars that I had a hard time with keeping up with before are now either easier to keep up with or outright pass.

Yeah I know, worthless post but the thread needed a bump. Cardinals in the Super Bowl?!

hehe it was the right thing to do...
if you want to go faster but the car and egngine are not then you have to experiment with the cluch, some harder cluch spring, the gap is up to you and your driving style. also change your rear diff oils they willmake a difference,if you are using like 5000(which i think you dont but anyway) use 10000 and if you are still not happy try out the 30000, but be aware that you will have to change the front diff oils so that you will balance between the front and rear a 45000 difference should do the trick. keep us updated

Freaking Marc! I do really like the Steelers but Arizona Cardinals in the Super Bowl?!? I just might actually enjoy this one this year. My favorite AFC team versus the lucky underdog. Screw it, I hope they both lose! Go Niners!!!

I'm running a spool up in front with 10,000 in the rear. I thought the spool would give me a hard time but so far I'm really liking it. I'm relatively new to racing 200mm nitro and all the cars I've driven since getting into it hardcore have had 1-ways. I do notice the differences in attacking corners but it feels to me that whatever I lose in pushing through a corner I make up in braking later in others. I have a gear diff that I haven't put in yet as well as a one-way, but I'm both lazy and liking the spool alot that I'm holding off in experimenting with that part of setup.

if you like the spool , you should try a diff w/100,000 in it .....
exactly the same but w/no push at the corners

Try 100,000 in front and 30,000 rear, that setting works 80% of the times, remember, HAVE FUN!!!! lean your engine and check you clutch. clutch is the trick to have a good engine transform to a GREAT engine

maybe im just an idiot but can someone explain the pros and cons of using the front swaybar?(i have no experience with the blade type)
im not sold on using one,just dont like the way you lift one side of the suspension and the other side raise up also,shouldnt one side stay planted to the ground especially during hi speed turns? shouldnt they be independent of eachother as both shocks would be where one wheel is raised the other wheel should remain on the ground?
i understand the benefit of using the rear swaybar but not the front.

Your not an idiot that is quite a good question and one that i have wondered many times myself. I would like to hear what "pattojnr" or "spracer" or "british menace" have to say about the topic but i think it works for the same reason, to transfer weight to the outside/inside wheels. But your right doesn't that mean they are not independant if they lift together

Your not an idiot ! For these questions I've found the Xray NT1 Setup book to be a valuable resource, you can download it here

Check out page 19.

Cheers

i think that the whole idea is that the car is lowered down and thus can will go faster...
