Is there another way other than wiring up resistors to stop the hyper blinking with LEDs in the EVO x?

Unfortunately the Evo X does not have a replaceable flasher module, so installing resistors is the only way to prevent hyperflashing.

It's a very simple procedure, but we can help you find a dealer closest to you if you prefer to have professional installation

Ok. That is kinda what i thought when i was looking up relays and their positions.
Just out of curiosity, how are your resistors different than like ones off of amazon for example?
I know that the resistors will get hot, but realistically when being used for turn signal bulbs, aren't they only getting current when activated. So would they really be getting that hot, unless you leave you turn signals on for like 5 minutes.

Our resistors are the common 6 ohm 50 watt resistors you'll find at any auto parts store. They do have a black housing and our name on them, but they operate the same as the ones you'll find on Amazon.

Basically, they will generate heat when the turn signal is in use. That's how you know electrical resistance is being generated in the circuit, and will prevent hyperflashing.

Here's an old video we put together demonstrating the typical installation procedure:
