body post...don't know yet... but I do have both 55 & 60mm HB purple body post ready to mount... I think both should work fine depending on how high you body hood is...

Countersink...I'm using Ti Screws from Alex Racing..tons left over from my 'Cuda. and all the screws are flat with the chassis.

don't have an Evo3...so I can't compare... but to me they look about the same. After I installed the Futaba S9550 digital low profile servo...there is plenty of room for the electronics. I think even with a regular servo...there's still plenty of room.

At this point of assembly...the arms and steering linkage is the smoothest I've ever seen. THe fit is perfect!... the arms are very stiff...very little to no flex at all. with the 2.5mm chassis there is very little lateral flex... I can imagine there will be very minimal flex when when the car is fully assembled with the upperdeck.

As you can see...plenty of room for electronics:

Exclamation **WARNING**

Don't do what I did
When boiling your bevel gears...do NOT!
leave them unattended. In the midst of assembling the car...forgot about the gears in the pan...and this is the result...

Good thing I order a lot of extra gears from RainbowTen...

I never had to with my other cars like the TC3 or Yok SD's. In it's current state..the bevel gears are dry & brittle and may break when racing... boiling the gears softens them up and makes them more durable... It's stated in the HPI japan R&D cafe. I"m sure HPI will address the problem with a new set of bevel gears.

When boiling the gears I would recomend you string them together and place a shishkabob stick over the top so that they are not sitting on the bottom of the pot.
