Say hello to my little friend Laughing 


So it started as a awesome 50:50 chassis, but no one wanted it...



and then the craziness began... I put together the MR4SD slide steering system and fitted it to the Evo (step 1)







and this is the almost finished product Smile 




Car is now super responsive with the AVC receiver, but I am very happy with the outcome and looking forward to making the smaller tweaks to get it as stable as possible.

Update Smile fitted my rolling suspension mod, started using a separate gyro and changed wheels to 6mm from 3mm yesterday and now I can use my eagle racing super soft dual rate springs and still maintain good ride height with awesome traction! I'm now running T-Drifts all round and it runs well on tar and laminated flooring Smile

Here's my update guys, I'm supper stoked with how this car drifts Smile


It has a clone of the active hobby slide steering for the yokomo mr4 and I'm using my Sakura D4 lower suspension arms and hubs on the front. Running a Hobbyking 13.5t with BlueBird 621 digital metal gear servo and eagle racing  gyro. The rear suspension is Hobbyking trackstar drift  spec rockers for extra traction. I have 165g in the front and 30g in the rear to stabilise the car.

Here is a short video of my setup, still needs some tweaks, but otherwise I'm really happy with how she handles.

Update, so I sold my D4 and had to remove the parts I borrowed from it for my Evo, so the Evo is back to its original home made mods setup but considering what I've learnt about its handling over the past three weeks I thinks it's handling even better now or maybe I've just got better at rwd lol!

Fitted mono mod to the front to allow for more angle with wheels rubbing onto the shocks.

Mono shock mod worked well, but didn't allow me to fit my shell so I'm forced to go back to a standard shock position... Didn't want to drill holes into my front shock mount also.
