So these have been selling like hot cakes. Got mine all ready to roll and have to say it's a superb bit of kit.

Get your pics and any questions posted in here

Default 3mm Rear Arm Mod

This is not something that is required, however, with the high grip tracks in the UK, this may be something you might find useful if running on carpet or astro.

I have removed 3mm from the rear side of the rear arms. It increases the available wheelbase from 275-278 up to 275-281. As a point of reference, the Xray XB4 is 279-281, so you can see how much adjustability this gives you for different surfaces.

Pictures below, any questions just ask

A Yokomo one. It came with the YZ2. I would normally go for one of the LMR wings, but due to the low wing mount, this seems to be a good fit with the raised section over the wheels.

Default evo vs b-max4

hi,
can this one be competitive with b-max4 on small-tight high grip carpet track?

have been decided to go with b-max, but this thing realy looks good...

what option parts is necessary for this kit to be good on carpet?
I heard that kit springs are to soft...is it any other mods necessary?

Yes!

By the new design features the car should be better than the previous version on high grip. And even more so if you increase the wheelbase like i have.

On low grip you have i think the shortest wheelbase available on the 10th racing market, so nothing is going to come close on a really tight twisty track.

Some guys in Aus have already done a comparison between the S104 Evo and the BMAX 4 iii.

Steve,

Interesting mod, would that be worth doing on my current runner? Also interested to know if the motor mount would fit my currebt runner.

Hi James

Probably not a bad idea to try. you need to think about lining the shocks up though. The new car angles the shocks forward, so moving the bottom arms backwards actually brings them in line with the standoffs. I cant remember what the old car is like.

The motor mount may fit, you can run a slipper with it, so the spacing should be the same. You would need the other centre bulkhead peice though as the diff sits about 7mm lower on the new car.

4 screws pretty much. The front of the gearbox case just comes away.

i gave it a run in the astro yesterday at Herts.

Seems very good. Puts power down really well, very stable and loads of steering.

Began my build last night and must say the quality of the plastics and machining are as good as I have come accross.

Experienced a little bind in the drivetrain once the diffs were installed which I found to be caused by the screws on the gear diffs not being wound down super tight. In the past with other cars I have only had the 4 screws in the diff snug to avoid cross threading the plastics on the other diff half so tried that approach on the Evo to begin with. This caused my bind as the diffs are a very precise fit in the gearboxes so make sure the screws are done down tight when building.. The plastics on this car I'm sure will take the extra pressure.

Other than that the car has built superb so far.


Chris

Ok, wishbone mods pretty simple as the shock mount can be modified. Motor mount will hold off on until I can see it, as there is always a way of making it work.
