I purchased an 2005 Evolva new to get back into 1/8 gas after being out of it for 13+ years. All I can say about the kit, is what a change!!! KIt built well out of the box, not like the old kits.

I do have a question as to how to get more turn in with the car. I'm not sure about coming out of the corner as the clutch was not set correct and the clutch was set to loose. However, it was consitant. I was running the setting pretty much as it was shipped. I did change to gray front springs, but still had the black rears in the car. I was running 35's all around.

One area that I know would help would be to use a new body. I had 3 or 4 unused Lolas for the early 90's. I did compair to the new and what a change. The front is almost 1" shorter and the back is 1-1/2" taller.

Thanks for any input.

With the rear suspension holders, you have to purchase 2 x FM533-35. They dont come as a pair.
The knuckle arms do come as a pair: FM503-0.
Is there a new tank??? What is the part number of this?

As anyone noticed after fitting the new suspension holders how much you have to wind out the pivot balls to keep the same rear width as before? It doesn't leave much thread left in the arms.

Rich,

Thanks for pointing me in the right dirrection. I have already purchased several Empire parts for the car. I have not put them on yet, thought I'd get a base line feel for the car and then make the change.

I'll check out the Dome body.

I used to run a Serpent Sprint long wheel base 6010 in 2wd. Racing with the guys from C. Springs really helped get me quick before, I was glad to race with them again, even if they went by me like I was driving a Pacer!!!

There a number of upgrade parts as well, enough to justify having an upgrade kit. The picture below are the parts included in the upgrade kit.
