Ziggy is correct. And to elaborate a bit more...

When I setup droop (on the bench at home when I have plenty of time), I disconnect the shocks, loosen the front sway by the set screws and then push them out so they don't touch each other at all. Then do your droop setting on pit board/blocks. Once that's done, I push the bars back toward each other, that's when the little tab adjustment come in handy. I'll adjust the 2 tabs so that I make sure I'm retaining the same droop each side and full arms travel. Then I pop the shocks back on after I'm done.

Hope this helps.

Dom

i think it won't differ so much in terms of CG. correct me if i'm wrong but the heaviest part of a servo lies at the bottom, so whether it's standup or laydown, the bottom part of the servo will still be at the bottom part of the chassis...
well it's just my opinion...

I agree with you, my thought on the servo motor as well. Since the first pics of the EVO came out I've been saying the CG won't really make "that" much difference.

Thanks for the info/update.
Rather than the top deck, I'm much more interested the revised two speed shaft and brake/pulley components, with the claimed easier maintenance, as the RRR as it stands now is uncharacteristically difficult to work on (compared to the rest of the rrr) in this area.

It does look very different, but does anyone know exactly how it is different?

Also, is it likely there will actually be a "kit" or just a list of part numbers you need to buy?

Regardless whether it's the "way to go", I'll be doing the top deck conversion just because of the easy access to the throttle servo. And just because to try new things out, see it myself and put this whole "High servo CG" issue that everyone was complaining about to rest.

I'm anticipating the parts will be here next week.

Instead of having 1 pin holding the alu brake hub, another pin holding the pulley, the pulley is now installed using a set screw. Also the pulley has 2 prongs which the brake disc is mounted. Kinda like the setup on the Evolva.

As for if there will actually be a "kit", still waiting to answer.

Default Front Diff

I am switching to the front diff from the spool. From what I have been reading and research done, the car should be alot easier to drive.

To some of the persons who are presently using the front diff and pleased with it, what wt oils you find works best?

50,000 wt
100,000 wt
120,000 wt

I am planing for a major event next weekend and don't have much time for trial & error.

Thanks in advance for this vital info!

I have just started doing some different combo of oil for front and rear diff recently. I went the opposite of what people would normally run... I did 30k front, 50k rear... worked pretty good surprisingly.

I'm having parts for another set of diffs coming so I can just do back to back testing w/o too much time wasted changing oil. Different combos with front spool, 30k & 50k front, 30k/40k/50k rear.

60K. I did some testing and found the front diff easier to drive than the spool and the one way, it was more consistent.

Cheers
