This is one very good car!!!!

I've not raced it myself but I know a fair bit about it.

This is the same car that was used by Cyrul, Spashett, Bertin and Collari at the worlds in Cincinatti, the one that TQ'ed and won the event.

By far the best handling car at the worlds and nice and easy to work on to.

Kyosho must've just released the full production version.

The only people I've ever seen running them are Pros.

I reccomend looking around at your local track, seeing what other people are driving, that way they could give you help setting up whatever car you have.

You have to glue the tires? Are they the same as the Mugen wheels? I have a bunch of Mugen tires, so maybe I'll switch.

i got it from japan
this car is better than the fantom 2002 evo2.
and the new evolva still come with 3D clutch not a 4D clutch and the engine mount has been lowered.

guys,

just want to share some pic of new evolva

it's a very nice car to build.
if you want to used the old rims, you need to do some minor mod to the front wheel to make it fits. and the rear wheel need to be cut to 60mm width. otherwise it will be touching the hub. and the rear pin that goes to the wheel also longer than the old one.
and for the RX battery you need 5 pieces of AAA size












i got it for 70000 YEN
