I have the honor to be the new proud owner of Evo… in October I sold my other scout and jumped on a plane to check out the Evolution. It’s been great so far and this thing can wheel! Check out my photo album for a few good shots by Brett and others.
I’ve done a few things so far. When I got it, the steering was super scary at speeds over 35 mph (intense death wobble). With Julian’s assistance\suggestions I reached out to PSC, who is local to Dallas TX area, and picked up their pump, reservoir and cooler as well as had them rebuild the gear box. With that improvement and having a good alignment, it will cruise at 60 mph with little issue now. Damien, at D and C, gave me a few other suggestions for better steering that I will be taking care of soon too.

I have to say that I'm glad that you got it and will be doing the fine-tuning that it needs. When we delivered it to Matt we knew of the problems with the steering ~ the guy who swapped the HP44 to a passenger-side drop didn't give it enough caster ~ so it was a little squirly. The problem was that Matt's day-job went hectic and then he started up his own company that took a TON of more time ~ and never could quite get over here for the relatively simple mods ~ I mean, IIRC, he wasn't even able to even have it aligned!

I'm very glad to see it finally getting some attention, and that it'll get those mods. that's why I wanted to talk with you Casey ~ I look forward to hearing what the mods do for the rig and seeing it become what it was meant to be ~ meaning a good DailyDriver as well as an off-road monster.

Damian,

The pictures from the earliest part of this build do no show up any longer? Did the links expire or were they removed from the post?

thanks!

Christian
