Also there is a 213 belt listed as well as the 207 belt on RC mushroom. Whats that for? Can I use that to fit a 25t 18t pulley set at the front?

Cheers

Hehe, that's why ya get allen bits for the electric screwdriver. Now that I think about it, you may be on to something... no bit switching... faster changes

A #8 would be the size of a screw The SAE screwdriver sizes are #3 through #0 with 3 being the largest and 0 being tiny. The #2 size is the most common for all applications you see everywhere including our race cars. Beware, I have seen some screwdriver manufacturers reverse this scale.

I just realized I made a mistake on this setup sheet, I actually ran the car long in Canada, with 12.5 Degrees of caster.

Fraz,
Now you made me go look, it says P2 on the handle of my favorite screwdriver. According to the trivia that makes it the "most common".

Aaron,
Thanks for the set-up sheets

Default Evolva gear ratio

Hi I wonder if you could advise me on what gear ratio's to use. I am currently using the standard ratio but I am looking to go towards more top end. Here in Dubai its all about top end at the moment. Do you any advise on this and compremising the low end gear, if that makes sense. I am thinking of using low gear pinion 17, spur gear 48 and high gear pinion 21, spur gear 44. I am running at about top speed 103 kph about 64mph.

No problem, glad I could help, and hopefully you can replicate what I showed you. Makes a big difference doesn't it?
