thats pretty weird, my car went evil kenievl today. did barrel rolls and jumps...bumper is fine. but body is wrecked

and my opinion is that the evo3 is smoother than yokomo's. at least it seemed like it when i "raced" the yokomo's (not SD's). one car kept crashing into me...pretty funny till i bailed and did a billion barrel rolls

Steve I ran 96/33-36 up at Rain with 19T depending on layout.

96/33 was for the Puyallup Nats race

The 414 I ran in the 7.1-7.3 ranges at the Cyrul race


Hopefully that gives you some benchmarks

Dan

You think Asia Cup will push thru? I heard Singapore will host it, but the SARS scare will probably spoil it. Any news from Waigo?

I have a set but it's just one more thing to fall off or loose for me To eliminate the wheel rubbing on the front outer camber link, I trim off part of the ball cups so that they won't touch the rim.

You can call it laziness but the fewer things that fall off the car while I take things apart, the better.

Here are the results from Socal Tuesday (thanks to RBF). Good close racing and I'm not at all ashamed of a 4th place finish...nice fighting for position.

hey rod?

are you gonna race at the KO grand prix in june? i am hoping to come down for that race, i have never run at socal, though i have stopped by many times. it will kinda be my graduation gift to myself, first vaction on my own, and i can't think of a better place to spend it, than in southern cali (bueatiful weather, girls, lots of fun things to do, more girls, malls to go to, girls at the malls... )

peter

Sorry, I don't have a part number for blue ball bearings. They are very nice and live up the legendary "Tamiya Blue Bearing" status.

Do you clean and re-lube the tamiya bearings? I have just got a set to fit my Atlas YM34 Type T but didn't clean them out in case it damaged the rubber shields. They are smooth but not as free as i would like.

>> Do you clean and re-lube the Tamiya bearings?

I always do! I clean them with a product called "Goof-Off" and then I re-lube them with very light synthetic oil. It makes a huge improvement in the freeness of the drive train.

>> do you ever use Tamiya wheels spacers on your EVO?

I have been. They are a good tuning aid. I have been running my wheelbase the shortest it can go with one 1 mm spacer on each corner. I am very happy with this setup.

Hey Peter, congratulations on graduation, now you've only got 4-7 more years before you can really REALLY celebrate hehe

I signed up for the KO Grand Prix in Pro Stock class. There'll be handout motors so chances are we're all going to be hurting on power. It should be fun.

Thanks Alan. Yes helps alot as I have the TC3 springs so I can compare the Tamiya´s with. Seems the Tamiya White and Blue are allmost identical with 16,5 and 16,3.
Is there any EVO3 setup from the UK? Should work here also.
