Hi Phllip,

You can try Elite Hobby Shop. They dont have much yet but have
the basic wear and tear parts. And they are now starting to
slowly expand their inventory of parts for the Evolva.

Last Saturday I gave my new JP FX .21 AAC its first run on my Evolva. After having gone through the running in procees I started leaning out. I was very impressed with what I saw. Tons of bottom end power and loads of top end ... infact I decided to use the 19t pinion on the 2nd gear so as to attain the most out of the engine. Together with the new 2015 pipe and short conical manifold by Novarossi I can claim I have the most power full engine I ever owned to date.

One thing I noticed is that idle revs are slightly higher then usual and that compression is less then the ABC configuration..... however its normal.


Bye for now!!!
U r right !!

Angry Evolva fragile

Hello guys

I just switched over from the MRX3 to the Evolva car,and i love this car. To me this car fits my style of driving more than the mugen I makes my driving look better then i really am.... But i must say this car is not at all durable.
better yet this car is very very very fragile.
Problems ive had.
stripped spur gears/pinon gears wear very easely/front bodymont and bumper/steering kunckles and linkage also the
front wheel axle were the quick release cracked off.
I may hve to give this car up, because other racers have tap my
car from the rear on my mugen never broke like that before.
All of my race buddys are laughing at me, and calling this car a cheap kyosho
I need help help help what should i do???

I have only raced this car once for a 3 day race weekend with this car and it did make me faster and smoother. I broke a steering block and nothing else.
The pinion gears wear fast because they are aluminium
The pros For alu. pinions-lighter rotating mass, con-faster wear.
The front bodymount looks fragile...an upgrade probably needed here.

Stripping spur gear is caused by incorrect meshing adjustment. Not the cars fault.

The front wheel axle is the same as the Mugen.

This car is too good to give up and certainly not to be replaced with a Serpent. The only 950R's that Ihave seen run well are by factory drivers.

Default Shimo Racing Front Body Mount

Hi Guys,

Try the Shimu Racing Front body Mount for the Evolva. Its made of
a plactic like material that it far more flexible than the Carbon
Fiber piece. Thus, it will not break as easy.
