Well, here it is... the EVO top deck.

I did order all the new springs, spurs but did made an error. For the new springs, you HAVE to use the Evolva shock collars (VZ109) which I didn't order, and since you have to use Evolva collars, that means you have to use Evolva shock bodies(FM529-1). Why? Because the new springs are a tad smaller in I.D., they won't fit on your existing RRR shocks, Evolva shock collars are smaller. This is for both front and rear springs.

So make sure you order all the parts needed for the new springs.

The new deck impression...

Awesome, everything is so much easier to get to now. Even the steering servo mount has been improved. It has been cut through now (notice where my steering servo wire is going???) so that you can gain access to the ball nut on your servo horn! On the top deck, there is a small hole where you can line up your ackerman and get access to the screw on the steering ackerman.

You can put the throttle servo underneath the top deck, however you'll need to cut the front part of the radio tray support to clear the servo. I didn't feel like doing that, plus once you cut it you won't have a hole for the screw anymore, didn't want to sacrifice strength so I just put the steering servo above the top deck. As for the receiver, I just use good ol' servo tape, and will be cutting a piece of bicycle inner tuble to wrapped the whole thing up. As for getting t-boned on the side? Before I drive for Kyosho, I was running Mugen 1/10th and 1/8th, both with the receiver on the side... no problem there so I don't anticipate anything will happen to the receiver again.

I also got the wide bumper, which is really meant to use with Lola body, so it'll require a little bit of trimming to fit sedan bodies.

Not yet, have you tried it at FW? The tracks I've ran at lately, I feel a 1-way would benefit more. With the way SARCAR usually setup their tracks, it should be a 1-way track too at the Fuel Challenge.

I can see that on a smaller and tight track. I'll have the spool ready for the Sizz.

BTW, lack of experience with the front spool, has anyone spent quite a bit of time with a front spool?

Yeah yesterday that migraine pretty much killed me.

Well, if spool or diff is much better for our tracks then that's good news. Mike & I've been running 1-way all year long, looking forward to go even faster.

Yes there is a few guy run with the spool but their car are electric sedan ....I think Mark ran the spool because the track was kinda tight hair pin and short straight away...the longest back stretch is 75 fts.

hey dom
what are the part numbers you need to do the stand up servo conversion?
was it expensive to do?
is it worthwhile (easier to wire up servos and reciever?)

It is recommended to do lubing/cleaning maintenance to the bearings, and it depends on how much time you have and how hardworking you are, if you're talking about interval during a race that is. The only bearings I lube during a race are the clutch bearings and the thrust bearing. The others I do it once every 2 months...
baby Girl !!

can relax now.......

finally, Will be racing this coming event ..
wow....quite a number from MY joining this race...You taking part ?
