Hey Aluma, our track is also 100' x 60' - it's a permanent track but we intend to change the layout from time to time. I think we have the same ideas on track design - I hope you don't mide if I keep a copy of your designs for future reference?

Here's a pic or our track, it's tarmac and undercover so no worries if it rains:

Picture of track at Blackpool, Lancashire, UK

(OK you guys can get back on topic now...)

like a 72/21 or 72/25. (which is what i had before on my evo2 I used to have) But i was getting beat on both straightaway and infield....haven't tried it on the evo3 yet.
I ran 72/25 on the big track with Monster Stock Pro and it suited me pretty well. I have not tried short track yet. There is a chance that...well...I'll tell you after I get back to Cali (and pick up that Micro of yours lolz)

Nope! I did this last April, and I am still running the same two diffs, I race twice a month!

Two diffs is the way to go for reliability.

Default "Surikarn" upper link mounting

Hey all,

Just real curious that we haven't heard any discussions
on the merits of using the SE's alloy upper link mounts.

Is there much benefit to the extra handling/setup options?

tnx in adv.

You mean this...(check attachment)?

Since i didnt have the Surikan Edition, I bought a Blue one from R/C Model. I DO think it helps via corner speed and on-power steering.

Yup, that's the one (53628).


So... more useful mounted Upfront?

Any use mounting one for the Rear too?



(gotta buy 2 packs if one wants it F & R)

Yes, i love the Square Motor mount. It is noticably lighter than the stock silver one, and prettier too!

Hey guys,

I just recently sold my Evo 3's But, before I did, I ordered a few more Hop-ups. Now I have the hop-ups, but no car for them. Would any of you be interested in purchasing them?

Here are the Items I have...

Square - Centre Shaft Holder for TB Evo 3 (Blue)
Tamiya - TB Evo III One Way Ring Carbon Plate
Tamiya - TB Evo III Surikan Ltd. Front Damper Stay

Let me know if any of you are interested. All Items are still in original packaging.

Thanks,

Alex
