So the answer is yes you can change the roll-center of the evolva.

Hi snake-eye

Please can you clarify where to out the shims and what effect it will have - e.g. 2mm above will increase rc.

Thanks

You put extra shims under the upper arm outer end pivot ball (the kit default is one of the blue 3mm spacers) adding 2mm gives you an increase in roll center of just over 1mm, also because you've altered the angle on the upper arm the camber gain pattern has been altered.

One more thing I'm looking for. I have the update rear body mount, but I see in all the pictures plastic screws on the ends to adjust pressure on the body. Anyone have a part # for these or know where I can find them?

You can pick up the plastic screws for the body adjustments at any electrical house. Fryes has a great selection.
I bought four or five packages there <many sizes> and also the plastic screws for the body side braces there also. Lots of drivers pop rivet the side body supports on, but I use the small plastic screws, as they can be removed as needed.

Rick, your notes are correct. Those are the correct part numbers but on the Kyosho America website, go to shop Kyosho and do a search for the FM 377. It comes up as a Evolva front belt.

Question, why will Kyosho make and sell it if it doesn't work

Thanks

Default Overdrive

Hi Guys

I am trying to figure out what is the amount of teeth on the rear pully - the big pulley that sits on the rear wheel shaft.

Trying to work out my overdrive...

Thanks
