Aluma- thanks man, i will have to try that! i've got the stratus 2.0 now.

davioh - yes that weight was with everything on except the transponder, i only used one can of paint on my body and my batteries are sanyo's 1300nicd's

JDM_DOHC_SiR - i don't know how much it weights now with the new gear box's, i also just added a metal geared servo and some more alloy parts aswell so i would say its well over 1500 now! i just got a full set of ti screw to bring it back down a little.

how come your cars are so heavy?

i've got mine weighing at exactly 1500 EVERY time it goes on the scales. I had to add weight to get it up to that though, with everything on it was about 1460

You guys have any trouble with the servo mounts? I purchased a low profile servo the other day, and the thing would not fit between the two mounts! The case was too big! I ended up mounting it to one of the mounts and laying a strip of double-stick tape for the rest. Seems to work.
I'm using a futaba s9550 low pro servo and it fits perfect. What brand servo are you using?

Default Surikarn Setup

I am about to put the Surikarn setup on my car, but i noticed that under oil weights, he put 700 #. What would this be in conventinal weights such as 50 wt or 45 wt etc?

Tamiya has addressed the gear stripping problem with a new backing plate part number:

Item 53625 TB Evo.III Oneway Ring Gear Carbon Plate.

It does help the one way gear last a lot longer, but with any big shunt, you should take the pinion gear off your motor and give the drivetrain a spin. If you feel a notch, check the one way gear. Chances are that you can avoid replacing the gear if you find a little gear flashing early enough (indication that the gears gonna get roached) and clean it up with an exacto knife.

Johnny J: The 700# is a metric weight as opposed to an SAE weight that Losi and AE uses. There is no definable way of calculating a conversion between the two. Your best bet is to puchase a collection of Tamiya damper oils, they're relatively inexpensive and it's awesome stuff.

53443 Silicon Damper Oil Soft Set (#200,300,400)
53444 Silicon Damper Oil Medium Set (#500,600,700)
53445 Silicon Damper Oil Hard Set (#800,900,1000)

GT: Your car is understeering? Where? coming into a corner, mid, exit? Your setup looks like it would have a ton of steering. Have you tried dropping the front upper inner camber links (if you have a standard Evo) and have you played with anti squat?

davioh: Please, try to add something useful to this discussion instead of your one-sentence babble. At one point, my Evo3 weighed in at around 1400g race ready with transponder and Ultlra Metals..blah blah blah...I dont know how much it weighs anymore and I don't care. As long as it barely makes the legal weight at big events. I'd rather worry about how the car is handling than how much it weighs...no ammount of weight savings is gonna save you if your car and driving is poo

No worries, davioh. It's hard to contain our enthusiasm about the Evo3 sometimes It's all good.

It could be worse, have you seen some of the signatures in the baracuda thread? Take about a scrolling and hunting for the message!

rtypec...how true.

I have my index finger in a cast currently. Web injury: due in part to excessive movement of the mouse wheel while scrolling thru the fish thread

So did the E3 update parts ever hit TA last week?
