Izzyracer,
I put the wheel axle in a drilling machine and used a file to cut it down to the right dimension. I didn`t have a spare axle at that time otherwise I would have changed it.

Nice...But just cause you own a evo3 doesnt mean an xray couldnt hand you your ass over and over again. I have owned both cars now and sorry to say the evo3 has no acceleration advantage anymore...Guys who play with thier shafts,beware!

I just had a quick question. Does the TAO4 steering set fit on the Evo 3? Check the picture attached to take a look...

actually....maybe if you put a few spacers...like...3mm worth of spacers...it might just work....i'll check out my friends tao4 when he comes back from germany or my other friend from canada...it would be nice if it worked....i am addicted to blue!

The Ta04 steeringbellcranks will not work on the Evo 3 because they are too long and will hit the gearbox. The 414m2 bellcranks on the otherhand is shorter and can proberly be fitted. Will test it tonight.

I think 414M2 bellcrancks will fit. I have a buddy that put alot of the blue stuff from his 414M2 on the evo 3 and it all fit. It looked really cool too.

well i seem to be faster than them! and those guys with the x-rays have years of experence over me! maybe you needed to do some matenace on your Evo3? because i definity have a acceleration advantage!
i'm not saying the're crap, but IMO the EVO3 is a much better car!
at least our shafts are hard!

Just tested the 414m2 bellcranks on the evo3 and they are a direct fit. You only need to fiddle with spacers to get the correct height of the servolinkage. And yes the posts are blue and exactly the same

this car is just sweet with the stock setup... blue? red looks awsome! especially with a few extra square parts installed.
tamiya shocks have got to be the best shocks ever. it seems like most top drivers in oz install the trf shocks in their cars whether it is a tamiya or not.

to the dude with the top end probs. you are probably running the fine pitch gears that came with the kit right?
try 48 pitch.

today i ran my evo...at first i went with 11T tamiya...and it wasn't all that great...so i changed to my mirage and it was the bomb! well the straits weren't that good...but with turns i kept up with nitros and little straits too...but not the super long strait...very nice run!

do you guys drive with toe out in the front?

and it goes REALLY fast down the straight. i would think you would be getting alot of wheelspin out of corners if you go higher(higher number) that 4.8? maybe you have much more traction on your track?
these johno's are the only motors i've ever used in my evo so i have tried a few different ratio's.
btw my motor only ever gets warm never hot.
on another note i'd like to mention i got 2 wins a second and a 3rd with my EVO today. not to shabby aye? considering i've only been racing for 6 months. i sure am glad i didn't buy a X-Ray!
GTMilenko,

I'm surprised that your motor does not get that hot at 4.6? I recently raced in a TCS GT3 class and those who geared below 4.8 were slugs off the corner...and VERY hot by the end of their heat. (I was geared at 5.1 and my motor was border line as far as temp goes) As for performance, I would consider the car fast, Qual. time were good enough to have grid me mid pack in the A main in the GT2 class (24' stock).

I wonder... are we calculating final drive in the same manner? (spur/pinnion x internal ratio = final drive ratio)

As for the track, it was large with good grip. (see pic)
