Thanks Guys. Appreciate the info. Will try switching to the allen head screws.. you right, it will help with the torque feel.

Front roll center is adjusted by moving the upper arm inner pin mount block - up (lower roll center) using shims or down (higher roll center)using option parts (Shimo or Empire). Rear by changing the blue spacer on the top of the hub carrier (more raises rollcenter , less lowers)

what about the rear lower sus holders. I see optios of 7-2 and 7 but don't know what these mean, and are there only 2 types of these sus holders?

The 7 (indicates # of mm up from chassis of pin centerline)was the original from the early Evolva, by the time I got involved with the car mid 2004 the 7-2in (which moved the pin 2mm inboard) was standard, there is also the 7-3.5 necessary to use with the 2007 lower rear arms, this pin movement has a small effect on rollcenter but the easy changes are the ones previously mentioned.

Rick has explained it clearly, the 7 indicates # of mm up from chassis of pin centerline, with the 7-2in the pin moves 2mm inboard, subsequently the 7-3.5in likewise. Changing the blocks slightly changes the rollcenter. Assuming you run the car at a normal rear width, the gap between the lower suspension arms and rear uprights is different. The only thing is that with the 7-3.5in the gap is maximum i.c.w. the 2003 arm, which may look a little bit funny, for that reason the 2007 arm was extended. However, all 3 blocks and the rear 2003 or 2007 lower suspension arms are interchangeable. Hope everything is clear.

Bleeding Kyosho shocks is a bit tricky. I like M****'* idea of a bleed hole. I drilled my collars with a tiny bleed hole and they bleed like a champ now. The stock shocks are fine, but bleeding them was tricky for ME, so I drilled the bleed holes and my shocks are much more consistent.

Always check the bladders especially if you see oil above the bladder- almost always a torn bladder. I use the white bladders. I tried the M**** clear bladders, but they don't fit the Kyosho cap very well and tear easily after 1-2 rebuilds.

www.ashfordhobby.com has the conversion kits and I use the screws from RCScrewz. Pricey but easy to perform maintenance over and over vs. the cheesy phillips screws.

I got a screw set from rcscrewz and noticed that some of them do not sit flat on the chassis. Mainly the countersunk ones. Maybe it's was my luck. I ended up buying HPI screws. Those worked really nice.

Yes, I used some of the Mugen titanium screws in my Evolva 07. Not all of them are suitable though.
