I drove my Evo 3-S for the first time this weekend and I think it is faster.( outdoor asphalt)
With the same setup I drove 0.2-0.3 s faster per lap than with my standard Evo 3. I contribute this to the new upper deck camber link, the car felt much more responsive.
But I still manage to break a oneway gear when I had full contact with a barrier.

I've given up on the one-way, I use diffs front and rear exclusively now, much more reliable.

Wow! Very nice looking car, but I doubt that you will need the heat sink on the motor Maybe a fan on the top of the ESC heat sink due to the high run temps.

another thing...does the spur gear carbon plate look like the one way carbon plate? and the one way carbon plate is awesome...you can get it so much tighter without bending the gear ring..so good! and is there a aluminium upper deck holder thats blue? red would make my car look really weird (it has blue unishafts, heat sink..so on
Ti= "Ti"tanium
the reason Ti screws cost more is because they are lighter and stronger than any metal(that i know of).

I've got the new front and rear shock towers, and the new upper camber links, and yes they are blue! WOOHOO! i'm going to be trying them out this weekend, maybe even get some pics for you guys if ya want?
i haven't upgraded my lower deck to 3mm yet, i'm going to wait until its more damaged.

no, they are the same, only thing different is they don't have the holes for the camberlink anymore and the rear one makes the body post positions wider (farther apart).
i bought them because i thought that they were 3mm, but nope they are the same, but i really wanted the wider body posts too, so it wasn't a total waste of money.

Titanium, is by far not the lightest metall.
But it is very hard.
End therefor we mostly can use less material, as opposed to using other metall

An easy example of a lighter metall would be aluminium!

Thanks.

I agree, the heatsink was stuck on the motor because I don't like the purple novak strip on the engine as it doesn't go with the red or blue anodized parts (I confess it is all about image). I have yet to try it yet, but if the heatsink does get too hot where I intend to run, I will install a cool fan for it.
