The Evo kit is a a little wider, a little longer and moves the motor and batterys back a bit. The motor mount is also lower, bringing the center of gravity down.

Most guys are just getting the Evo kits together I think, or only have limited testing on them, reports from oversea's are pretty positive, but it's a great buggy out of the box, don't think anybody was even close to Andrew at the Nats, it was impressive to watch what the car can do when I'm not driving it :oops:

I have a centre gear diff in mine at the moment and testing that is going well. My Evo kit is ordered and I hope to have that soon.

I love the car so far, just need to improve driving it.

Saw one of these tonight at indoors. Very very flash, and seemed to be up the front of the pack as well.

Hi,

I run shorty packs but most of the other guys are running saddles. I found the shorty kept the weight balance of the evo close to the original car which I really liked while reducing the weight of the whole car. This reduction in weight has allowed the car to be dropped, lowering the cog and I've also found the car jumps better.

Cheers
Andrew
