Default Kyosho evo 2 vs. evo 2 WC edition

Hello,

Just wanted to get a couple of opinions. What is the big difference btwn the evo 2 and WC edition scheduled to come out in January? Is is worth the extra bucks?

Thanks, Duc

the difference is the option parts. the evo2 wc comes with carbon fibre shock towers. it also has some other factory options.

i believe the evo2 WC is out in Japan already. RCmarket is supposed to have stock this month so you can try ordering one kit from them.

basically, the evo2 WCE is is a hopped up version of the evo2. it will not make you go faster but some of the hop ups are very functional, ie the rear anti-roll and front CVDs. alternatively, if you cant wait, a normal evo2 with the two hop ups will be more than sufficient already.

i know that i run the stock wire bar it is easier, and you get the same performance. the rear blade is also good but is harder to fine tune.

The Japanese shops should have them in stock (ie Pro Shop Futaba, Champ).

This comes out in two weeks incase your looking for a motor combo, the new Sirio XXX featured heavily at the recent worlds:

The Capricorn CL12-E and CL12-ET are based off of the Sirio XXX and are also supposed to be pretty fast. Just an FYI.
