I've actually only had problems with the stock belt on really bumpy tracks. With the SP belts I get quite a few runs on them before they need replacing.

manokkgt4: What is Takagi belt? It is meant for Evolva? Anyhow i managed to fit Serpent rear belt to my Evolva, but it needs some trimming down of width to fit the pulley. It didn't fit that well because its a bit long so i changed the front pulley to 17t. I tested it yesterday and so far it worked. Hopefully it can hold during the race today.

raceblast: Thanks for the link. I will try to order from them.

Thanks!

Default steering ackerman

What steering ackerman are you guys using? I m using stock set up and using no12. If I need more steering during medium speed 180 turn which one should I use?

Has anyone use the optional brake disk and pad from Kyosho? How is the performance? During the race last weekend, I noticed that the Mugen guys here who use teflon pad, were braking more consistant.

Has anyone had a problem with the evolva shocks whereby the small clip, that holds the 2 clear rings and single white washer at the bottom of the shock in place, just pops off when the shock is pressed?
Maybe its something Im doing wrong so I would appreciate if anyone else has had this problem.

Can someone give me the part numbers for the blue pivot ball retainers and those plastic cups that go between the pivot ball and retainer?

Thank You

Default Evolva parts

If your talking about the Ball screws, the parts your looking for are on the FM509 small parts set and FM338BL screw caps.

Thank you Kurly.

Where can I get the caps? I can't find them on Tower and I think Delta is out.

Default damper leaks oil

Have u guys ever had problems with Evolva shock oil leak? I think the leak is at the bottom of the shocks, because the top caps are dry. I readjusted the shocks two weeks ago, and the car was put on a car stand so that the wheels were hanging free. While setting up the car today, I find that the shocks does not rebound much, and oil is everywhere. I never have this kind of oil leak with my NTC3 or Serpernt 835.
