Also look at the top of the motor mount, it has been shaved down slightly to stop the upper deck bending down when you tighten the rear top deck screws down. Rick

The car is form Satoshi Maezumi, at the last weekend meeting at the yatabe Arena, Umino won the race with his Tech Quarta..BUT MAEZUMI STARTED ON 10th PLACE AND FINISHED 2nd!!!!!!! way to go mans..., u can see his setup on the tamiya japan webpage, nothing really new besides the new front bumper, with wider position on body posts and the two extra body posts...that makes the body have less roll, so all the movements are from the chassis...really the better way to see if your setup is ok, and how your car handles on the track
This weekend is the LRP TCM here in Europe, and all the Tamiya team will be there..., letīs see!!! i keep u informed!

Go to "Naojun's Evo3" and click 3rd link from the top.

He is a friend of mine. I knew soon or later some one will find a picture from his site. He was asked by Satoshi not to show piture until Tuesday.
He also mension that some of the parts are Satoshi's original and may or may not be on a new Limited Edition EvoIII. So don't get too excited. Lets all wait until Tamiya release their pictures. No details were given to him, just a pictures.

mmmmMMMM.... blue aluminum... mmmMMMmmm... heheh.. I wonder if those are all tamiya parts. Like TCS legal lower deck.. I luv how it's all milled out like an X-ray. If it IS, a kai chassis, where did all the blue aluminum stuff came from? and I thought the factory drivers were all running on that new Red TBE3?? sheesh.. so confusing. heheh..

BTW.. MR4, I run my RC like almost every other day, and usually for fun, w/ a Reedy Ti 8x2 (not smart for a rookie, but fun anyways.).. I'm really scared too, cuz I'm basically just waiting for MY bevel gear to give way. we'll see if it does or doesn't=)

Are you sure he's running three caps or three diodes? IN any case-both are perfectly safe to do. I run more than one diode on my cars now. Even my 12th scale. Anythng to make sure servo movement is never compromised. Some say the Diodes just keep the ESc cool under braking and others say they block "noise" that can cause the Servo to twitch.

With 2.28" tires I only ran a 28/96 with a 9 dbl Ti. I dont think I personally would go much higher. I was thinking of going down one actually.

Here's a pic of my home made backer plate. It seems to work, haven't striped one since the upgrade The pics kind of small but you can see it won't rub.

Heres a pic of just the diff. It all fits will no rubbing. Had to change the screws though the 2x4mm were too short I had some 2x8 but they rubbed on the housing so I used small button head screws.
