Shock position 3rd hole from inside (Front & Rear)
Kit 27/25 Springs
Camber links 3rd longest location (Front & Rear)
2 mill shim on bulkhead for camber link (Front & Rear)

Diffs in low position (Front & Rear)
Spool up front
Rear diff 725 cst (4 gear kit diff)
Roll centers Middle location (Front & Rear)
No shim on ackerman bridge
NO steering post top deck stiffners
Kit sway bars
2 millimeter shim for bumpsteer
LTCR body

I tested a gear diff up front with 500,000 wt oil after racing was over and car was even better...

I wanted to try shorter rear camber link, low roll center up front, and .5 mill of arm sweep but ran out of time.

Well-done and thanks for sharing the setup of EVO

Cant find anywhere to buy this car. Might have more interest with links to vendors that will sell it internationally.

Interesting thing I found out was that the arms that come on these cars are 5g heavier than yokomo ones each.

Yes, it's possible, I never checked it.

The TM arms are a bit "massive" for a question of overall strength. We choose to have very low flex on arms, to don't interfere in the work of shocks and springs.

Default Setup help

Hi, I recently bought this car.

Build was good, and I setup the car both as per kit and similar to Barnacle but I just can't get the rear end to stay planted late in a corner (while slowing or coasting). It just snaps out on me - won't follow the front well at all when slowing for a tighter corner.

Tried various rear droop settings, shock positions, roll centre changes (inner upper links), rear toe and camber, various bodies and tires but I can't tune out this late oversteer. Track is outdoor low-mid grip asphalt.

On power the car is great. Changes direction well and planted through the sweeper but slowing the car for the tight 90* corners results in good initial turn followed but some drift action. Looks cool but def not the fastest way round the track lol

I drive this, a cso one and an awesomatix - the other 2 are fine... I'd like to get this car sorted as well

Thanks in advance

Simon

Try a few different things...

less dual rate on transmitter (I have been using approx 70%, used 90-95% on my last car that had no initial steering)
stiffer front springs
thicker front sway bar
thicker front shock oil
less rear droop
spacers on the steering post to make front of top deck stiffer
2 millimeter shim on ackerman bridge
spacers underneath front bulkhead to stiffen front end
no bumpsteer shim
anti-dive to prevent the weight transfer up front
front diff in upper position

try some of these and give some feedback. will get it figured out.

Hello

You could test this setup, this is our basis for outdoor on low/medium grip track: http://blog.hrcdistribution.com/setu..._II_EVO_JD.pdf

If you don't have HPI Silver springs, Ride Red are very similar.

Maybe something is binding, try taking the pinion off and roll the wheels and see if something is catching.

The top deck spacers to stiffen the front end work great to reduce this oversteer.

This car has a ton of steering. Reduce front camber, add rear camber and turn the dual rate down. This will get headed in the front direction and tune from there. It takes some time to get used to the setup because of all the steering, but once you get it there, the car is unbelievable.

Default Problem sorted

Thanks for the suggestions. Checked the obvious stuff like binding etc and was all fine. I decided the 1st thing I would try was fixing the top deck to the steering posts and problem solved. No longer getting the oversteer problem. Guess I was just getting way too much front grip from the flex. I have lost a fraction of steering but I'm confident I can tune this back into the car.

Cheers for your help gang.

That adjustment is very noticable!

Glad we could help get the car better for you.
