Default New Kyosho upper hangers

The new Kyosho upper hangers bend easily too. I bent a set at the Nats by barely touching a board. Can't wait for Empires version.

Upper hanger, 2005 style, are available now. The Front Sway bar holder will be ready to ship end of next week. The '03 style hanger (with relocated inner hole position and able to be lowered by 3 mm) will be ready in two weeks.

Good deal Rich,
If you don't forget please repost in here when the sway bar mounts are ready also so I can order both at the same time.

Happy too.

Did you notice the Aaron Buran put his Evolva in the A main at the Winter Nats? His first outing with the car. Talk about awesome work - that's hard to beat! Congrats Aaron - impressive work.

Thanks, the car, engine and trackside support was excellent. Overall the Evolva rotated better and carried more corner speed than my 960. The sweet spot on the setups of the car is very wide. No matter what I threw at it, the car responded well. My old car I could go too far with the setup, and completely unhook it. The Sirio horsepower was excellent, the STI engine's should be available from Kyosho USA in the next 2 weeks. Thanks to the Kyosho and Sirio team, I look forward to our next event.

More steering overall - they are very nice. Put on a Dome body and watch out!

Default starter boxes

..I'm using my serpent starter box that has mounts to hold the old Vector. They obviously don't fit the Evolva. Does anyone make the plastic plates that fit the Evolva, or is it up to me to fabricate something?

Thank you for any input on this.

I used my old Serpent start board to light the fuse on my Evolva. I am not aware of a conversion adapter, but I didn't look very hard. I put a pair of studs on the outsided of the rear cup to center the chassis. I think that I removed the front locater and mounted two studs directly to the top to center the chassis that were right behind the front bulkhead hingepin mounts. Just make sure your pit guy can use it. If he has to hurry and can't figure it out... you're toast!

..Exactly. I'm in the process of fabbing up something kinda like what you are talking about- using studs to line the car up. But, like you said I want to make it user-friendly, and not look like a home made piece of sh$$ either.
