Btw that undertray looks very nice! I like how it comes under the exhaust too - good design.

The cast steel bevel gears are now standard on the evos. They have been since about 3 months after the evo was released. I went through 2 sets of old ones, and on the second set (a few months after I bought it, i got the cast ones for free - lhs said hpi had told them to replace stripped pot bevel gears with cast for free. No problems since (14 months down the line). I also stripped a middle gear in those first few months, got a stock replacement (which is also still o.k 13-14 months later) but I now have a hd one waiting for when the stock goes.

Also on the evo the transmission case is slightly different, aswell as the chassis, engine plate, engine, rotostart, and the better compound tires with foams in all four. And obviously the body too. And the latest standard radio gear.

I may get one of those undertrays in the future - looks good.

Subsy, if the evo is new, then there will be the cast steel ones. Or if it was originally bought in the last 12 months(ish) then it will have them too. They aren't visible from the outside as they are inside the main gear in the transmission case...

ORIGINAL: 46u

When I sent back my chassis they sent me a new motor plate as from what I understand the old one will not work with the new chassis. The new motor plate is cast. There has been several chassis up grades for the original Nitro Rush. What you get now is a black Evo chassis. I actually have the first up dated and the last up dated black Evo chassis. The first up graded was still purple but thicker with the same sorry flat motor plate.
Actually, it'll work with the old chassis, there's just one little stump you have to dremel off if you're still using the stock upper deck.

i havnt actually started it or anything at the moment but i was watching the dvd that came withit and i was lookin at the breaking in procedure and the brakes and all that etc but now ive come to get all the gaps and everything right in the carb and setting the brake up i cant get the brake to hold the car from rolling and when its in neutral to roll freely. i can get them to do these settings but i cant get it to hold both of the settings its either, you can roll it at neutral but if u want to brake ur screwed because it wont, or you can brake but ull melt ya clutch because it wont roll at idle ! lmao what do i do?

What spring colour are you guys using on your evos? the standard black on mine suck - was thinking of going to purple on rear only at first to see how it handles. Any suggestions?

i use threaded shocks so that i can adjust the stiffness. however on my stock setup, i used to use blue allround. i agree the black shocks are awfully soft, specially with the rush's heavy rear end

When i first got my rush evo the best advice i got was to watch the dvd but don't change any of the factory setting to start with. Get the truck run in, get it running on the ground and get used to it and then start to make adjustments; but make adjustment one at a time so you can see what difference if any it has made.

Not sure, it's tricky when your not there to see what the trucks doing. You could always reset the truck back to factory settings and start from scratch, or maybe try adjusting the idle screw so it don't rev as much at idle or check the instruction for adjusting the break. Personally i don't use the break much as i'm too busy ragging and bashing it......which probably doesn't do it any good but its v v fun.

or take a little nick out of the plastic upper deck, rather thank trimming the extension off the new engine plate. works well.

and samisnake , thanks, have managed to get a set of purples cheap enough for the rear. I'll give that a try first before i swap chocks. T

tony, TRUST ME, it's easier to knock off that nub.
and more to the point, there's no corresponding screw hole in the original rush chassis.

i agree with thunderbird on this one. it is much easier to saw off the plastic stump than cuttin the metal bit. take the upper deck off first, then just screw the engine plate on, then realign the upper deck and have alook where the stump covers the engine plate. just saw that small piece off. it is easier to cut and also makes it look tidier.

i think we all got our wires crossed. we all agree on the same method, yet we are writing to each other as if we are each backing a different method [&:]
