From the Kyosho Japan Site the parts available for Evolvaa 2007.I think if we buy them, then our 2005 will be 2007 version.

I could go through this entire Thread but perhaps some or all you experts could give me the answer I am looking for: What exactly is the difference between the 2003, 2005 and the 2007, I see the 2007 list in the post above so I guess my main question is 2003 versus 2005. The reason I ask is because I have a very nice 2003 (and a lot of parts) and I am wondering if I need to buy a new car, update, or enjoy what I have. I do have the Empire front bet tensioner.

I know the 2005 had adjustable belt tension and different gears, that is about all I know.

Is the wheelbase shorter? If so how?

As far as the gears are concerned can they be mixed and matched or must they be used as a set......and why?

Thanks in advance

OldnSlow2 -
* the front and rear bulkheads are different (they have adjustable belt tensioners and these also lower the cg of the one-way/solid axles)
* softer front sway bar
* you can adjust the wheelbase from "normal" to "short" by being able to move the lower front a-arm front and back.

Those are the major differences between the 03 and 05.
You might want to wait a bit for the 07 kits to come out. It'll cost you approx $80 to $100 to upgrade the 03 to 05, and who knows how much to go from the 05 to 07 model.

Is there a front spool (solid axle) for the evolva ?

Will it handle better with front spool ?

I make spools for the Evolva, 960, MTX4 and MTX3. The spool will give you 4 wheel braking which will allow you to go much deeper into a turn before braking. Application of brakes causes the car to push instead of spinning.

I find that running a spool makes the car easier to drive and my fastest lap was run using a spool.

Check http://gasrccar.com/eshop for more details.

Default Assembly help

Hi Guys

I am new to the 1/8 class and have recently purchased a Evolva 2005 edition - not the WC edition. I am busy putting the car together and now I seem to be stuck.

In one of the bags that you use to assemble the front of the car, I have 2 pulleys. One with more teeth and one with less teeth.

Now, one of these pulleys needs to go on the front tube (one way). The question is, which one

I have put the pulley with more teeth on the front one way tube - is that correct? Is the other pulley a spare?

Thanks in advance...

Acid

No idea when it will be released. However, I know the conversion kit will be released first, then the full kit. So if you can get a 05 WC at a good price, then buy that & the conversion kit.

I posted a picture of the conversion kit above on this page. As you can see, there isnt much in it so I will be buying that only for my 05.

I guess the choice on what to get depends on wether you have a 05 or not.
