Anyone running them on there quad? How are they in the desert? MX guys seem to love them but haven't heard much from any desert rats.
I use them I like them alot. They are really adjustable. Some people say that they fade but I have not noticed it and I have raced vegas to reno on them lots of prerunning in baja, and some local races. I think they are good
I am running them on one of my 450R's. Quad gets ridden just about every weekend, and ends up being raced in a couple local races a year. (Approx. 120 miles in length each.) I have never noticed any fading or air leaking out of them. No matter how long I let them set, they are still at the same pressure I set them at.
I am happy with the Evol's, my only complaint is that they are a little harsh on the smaller bumps, but work really good on big impacts. If I set them up to work better on the little stuff, they are to soft for the big stuff. I know this is a trade off on all supension, but just seems more pronounced on these shocks compared to a standard coil shock I have ran. For racing, I actually prefered the revalved/resprung Elka's I had on my BITD quad. (Currently changing setups on my BITD quad, going with Motowoz, so we shall see how those work.) Again, I think they are a good shock and they have been trouble free, I think I just prefer the "feel" of a standard coil shock.
As far as adjustability goes which do you think is better spring or air? From what I've read (correct me if i'm wrong) Air shocks like axis and fox are only valved for rider weight? Meaning you can use the same shocks for a variety of racing/riding. Unlike spring shocks that are set-up for rider weight and a specific type of racing.
What a-arms/swing-arm are you using?
Which A-Arm setup should I go with?? I've been looking at Houser, Laeger's, & LSR... Roll Design is just a little out my budget!
Got my stuff ordered and should be delivered by Wed but ya know how that goes... Went with the Fox Floats, Houser LT Arms, & Lonestar Axle & Hubs! Gonna try to get installed in time to make it out to the D38 race next weekend
can I have your old parts that are still straight for spares?
