First off, the 2 cars you are considering are the best 2 on the market.

I owned an MRX-3, not an MRX-4, I have driven a couple 4's at our track. The Mugen car is a really good car, I think the key difference between it and the Evolva is stability. The Mugen car seems to have a little more inherent turn in than the Evolva, but is usually not as stable. The sweetspot in terms of set-up on the Mugen car is narrower than the Evolva. Often when the Mugen cars fast, they look and feel loose. Almost like a dirt car around the track, sliding, double steering etc..

The Kyosho's sweet spot is much wider. You can throw just about anything at it and it's pretty hard to make in undriveable. Whereas the Serpent cars as well as the MRX-3 I had in the past you could completely dial it out of ballpark. When you watch a Kyosho car on the track, it looks like a 1.12th modified car, very balanced and well mannered, even in the hands of a intermediate driver.

The downside to inherent stability of the Kyosho is sometimes on parking lot tracks, finding the amount of turn in the Mugen cars can generate on the same tires is difficult. But, kyosho, empire and delta make some good upgrades that loosen the car up a bit, and get it to turn more, under those types of track conditions.

how much are these evolva 2005wc? and where to buy? im thinking of getting serpent coz its cheaper.but i wanted the evolva coz they have the same tire as the mugen.

Moy,

Check Airland Hobby at Revelation. I think they had one last weekend for less than $500.

Moy,

I think when you look at the cost of spares, you will find that the Kyosho car is less expensive to maintain over time. Also the Kyosho car is more durable than the Serpent.

The one at Revelation was $485 just for that Sunday and it wasn't the WC it was the regular 2005. But $485 is and awsome deal, they might still honor that price.

Default Evolva 2005 and Evolva 2005 WC

Is there such a big difference between the Evolva 2005 and 2005 WC versions? What are the noticeable benefits from the WC kits?

The one hour sale on Evolva 2005 for $485 ended last Sunday. I called Kevin and he will sell one for $500 instead of the regular price of $529.
Anyone knows where to get good price on the WC version besides Ashford Hobby?

Default Never seen before Evolva 2005 chassis

I came across some pictures of a used Evolva that I want to buy. Can someone tell me if this is a special kind of chassis as there are no engine cooling slot on the chassis? If I look at the front lower arm and this is definitely the 2005 version. And the fact that 2003 and 2005 shares the same chassis this picture really perplexed me.

The seller is selling this car with a C5 about 2-3 gallons for $320. Any comments on the price based on the condition?

I was thinking this is a Delta as some may have suggested but according to the owner he got this car last Summer (2006). Could there be different versions for different markets?

Please help.

It could be a Delta chassis. No problems either way. Delta XP4 and the 03 Evolva are the same, and either car can be upgraded to 05 specs.

All I can say, the Evolva is an excellent car as previous posters have already said (even for someone who has just starting 1/8 onroad, like myself)

Default RD Logics Evolva Chassis

Did anyone use or hear about the RD Logics chassis for Evolva 2005? It looks so nice.

Also did anyone update their bottom chassis or other screws with hex allen type? It seems like it is easier to strip philips head than hex allen type.

Hello all, I use the rd logics chassis its very good nice and strong and slightly lighter than the stock one i would defently recamend it the only thing is you need to add roll pins for the braking system the holes are there but no pins. Aaron Buran, My car is on rails now it sticks like glue to the track I'm going to now dial a litle more turn-in into the steering its good it turns very well just pushes ever so slightly on very fast off power entry I think i will just drop a half a deg of rear toe in out at a time see if that helps me find what i'm looking for the car is so stable now turns very well and you can realy throw it around with out it geting out of control. Ill right up the set-up and post it I have no idear what it would be like at outher tracks but. It works Steller for my liking Thanks for the advice and tips after the winter nats let me know what you think of the new short rear upper A-arms. Regards Jeremy.
