Guys,

do you know if Tamiya will release very soon the parts in order to improve the front gear ?

I would like to know also what spare and option parts do you advise to have.

thanks for your help

Hi Davioh,

thanks, that's a little bit long as the Surikarn version will be released end of May...
I hope Tamiya will be much more reactive as there are a lot of Evo3 users

In the meanwhile,
What do you suggest me to have as spare and option parts ???

Has anyone had a close look at these photos. It appears that he is only using a brace in the centre of the chassis and not at the front or rear. (more flex????)

i got my transponder/servo mount from square today and i'm not that happy about the workman ship, the problem is the hole with the thread that holds the mount to the chassis has been tapped on a angle so the screw goes in on a angle, its not cross threaded it goes in nice but on a angle, this causes the head of the screw to ever so slightly protrud out the bottom of the chassis, anyhow its less than perfect.
i wanted to order other bits off them that relie alot more on pression.
has any won else got bits from square? whats the workmanship like? thanks guys

i believe hes uses 5 body posts, the front, back, AND the middle one, hes just taken them off for photos i think, i would.
i don't know why they he uses more, less flex i spose, but how does it help? its only the body. anyone?

Hi
I have had this transponder/servo mount from quare and had no problem mine was perfect. I've also had other part for my 414M with no problems it may be you are just unlucky and had a faulty one it can happen. I was not on about the body mounts but the brace between the chassis and top deck.

Middle body post for what? Isnt it just for stablity? As far as I know, you dont need flex of the chassis on carpet.
