What do you mean?

I think it was fair discussion of the new car.

I hope the manual is better this time... The Evo 2 WCE was just a supplement manual and really confusing.

hey guys

has anyone tried to fit a front diff into the evo2 ?, it wont fit in with the adjustable ackerman even if your remove some of the plastic from around the diff case, is there a diff housing that is made just for the evo2?

thanks

It's very possible to install a front diff AND, also use the M3 steering arm assembly. It only took me about 2 hours of trial and error test fitting amd the aid of Dremal triming to the inner tierod ends, and chucking the diff housing into a drill press and sanding the OD way down to accomodate.
At first I wasn't sure it would work, and risked ruining a diff housing. The tierod ends were a different story, (I didn't have spares), so go slow, but it will work.

I think the driving skill also plays a vital role. You can have all kinds of upgrades, but i still believe in the old saying: "Practice Makes Perfect". I am still driving the old TM G4S. I can still hold it on my own against other newer designs of other makes. Just my 2cents. Cheers!

youll have to wait and see , you running at GP?


ive got 100000 kyosho in so that should be close, im interested in seeing how it goes with the SR rear hubs and all

another good brass tray is the Asuka Create from japan , they make some good stuff including a evo2 chassis that has supports in the front end to stiffen it up a little , good price too.
