R10 seemed pretty smooth for me. It ended up at about $360 shipped. (took about a week)

Thumbs up

Nope, my testing has been limited at this point due to the Holidays.

I have had a chance to run it on a sport court that has decent bite. It appears that the new 2.6 internal ratio gets the EVO3 off the corner quicker than my 414M and it's 2.13 ratio did.

The chassis is less stiff torsionally than the M also...not sure if this will help increase bite or hurt it's consistance as it relates to handling.

Overall...it build very well (no surprise). And if the rumors from Japan are true about the TRF drivers breaking track records that are currenly held by that 414MII...well then I'll be happy soon enough

I'm not sure if I should ask here but I found a deal on a TB EVO II, about 120USD and was wondering how does this EVO II compare to the new EVO III?

any reason why they switch the layout back to like a TC3?

Is EVO II and a good enough car to be competitive?
