Default Lee,

Are you going to nats again this year? If so what class are you looking to run???

As for the setup. Rod's set up seemed to work very well at Reedy I run a very similar setup to this!

YOu cannot use the outer hole on the rear shock tower as the bodymount will not allow the screw to go in the hole, just dremil a little off the body mount where the screw would hit then all is ok. Rick

This is for GT1- a stock setup would be different

everything is quoted fr/rr (meaning front/rear)

springs- yellow/yellow
oil- 30/30
pistons- 3/3
arms- centered/centered
shock positions- #1/#4
camber links- #4/#1 (b on rear upright)
swaybars- none/yellow
camber 1.5/1.5
toe- 0/kit
ride height- 5/5.5
droop- 2/2 (that's mm- so the front is 7mm fully extended)
tires- Tamiya A or B2 if track temp is above 120 and Tamiya thin firm inserts
body- Modena

all the small stuff is kit settings

The f201 outdrives will not fit the evo 3 but the rear diff gears do.
If you need new outdrives get the new ones included in the surikarn. They should last a long time with antiweargrease.

Anyone know if the outdrives on the evo2 are made of steel and will they fit using the evo3 diff gear? Basically I'm looking for some steel outdrives to fit my evo3. Just finished building my evo3 and I'm very pleased with the turnout, I don't think I've ever built some shocks as smooth as these.

Yes, I agree. I love top loading bladder shocks. It's WAY better than the funky bottom loading losi shocks. I could never get an air free shock out fo those. The Tamiya shocks are works of art. Super smooth, and I can get them air free.

Jesse- just run the black ones until the white ones come out. They don't have them at Tamiya USA yet, but shouldn't be long.

I've had the Evo 3 for a while now, and i seem to be going through a lot of One-way gears. Can you buy aluminium ones?

Also, when i take the motor off, and i spin the spur, its very smooth, untill i come up against a resitence , then a bit of force and its right again. I have checked the front and back gears, and the shaft bearing, but have had no luck. I'm pretty sure its a tooth of something in the diffs, so i'll tear it down again later. But any idea's?

Thanks alot

get the carbon plate and try to stop smashing, it may stop the gears from stripping.

in regards to ressistance i had the same with my evo 3 surikarn. some gears have small (read very small) imperfections. get some fine wet and dry sand paper and sand top of gears down lightly and with a rigid thin peice of metal (like a eating knife) wrap the wet and dry S paper over it and go through each tooth gap, a few times.

after this and a run on the track it is super free.
