Try a Serpent gasket. They don't collapse as easy.

Hey Rich,

The uptravel you state on your setup sheets..is that measured uptravel? Or is the correlating numbers for the hudy droop guages?

Thanks a million again Rich,

John

Default Uptravel

The way I measure uptravel of the chassis:
Car ar rest, shocks on, lift chassis until tire looses contact. That's the measurement.
I watch how the car comes out of the corner and adjust accordingly.
Yes, I use my Hudy tools to be sure my stops and shocks are set correctly.

can i substitute the evolva's 9mm ball screw (FM337) with mugen mrx-3/mrx-4 pivot balls? i don't know if they are the same. the LHS said they had some mugen pivot balls in stock. is there something out there better than the stock steel pivot balls for the evolva?

No. The Mugen ones are smaller. You can get titanium pillow balls although the stock FM337 is probably stronger.

You shouldn't be having a problem with the stock pivot balls. Do you need a set?

Rich what size are the bearings that go in the new 05 bulkheads for the one- way and rear locker.

Anyone know where I can look at an 05 instruction manual?? I can't find it on the Kyosho sites at all.

If that is the part number for the adjustable rear sway-bar it will fit the 03 and 05 both
