Check the parts list at the end of the instruction sheet, you'll find the uprights are in opposite position, means the ride height / roll center will have some different when you miss install them. Look carefully, the center of the shaft was not an the middle of the overall height of the upright....

Hello everyone I just purchased a Surikarn EVO3 Edition yesterday. I have a couple of questions maybe you guys would be kind enough to help me out with.

1. I noticed that the Surikarn edition has rubber sealed bearings. When you guys clean your bearings, do you remove the rubber seals to clean them and do you leave one side of the seals off.

2. I've heard that simple green does wonders in removing dirt and grease from bearings, is this true.

3. How well does the kit setup work in mod at a Tamiya like track.

Any of the building / preperartion suggestions will be greatly appreciated as well. Thanks for your help. Looking forward to building the kit.

Im just in the final preparation for the nationals beginning tomorrow. Now I noticed the front uprights at my EVO3 are not as in the manual being C1 for right and C2 for left side. I bought the EVO3 as prebuild by another racer and he switched them over so the C2 is on the right and C1 is on the left side currently.
When it is C1 right and C2 left, the front roll center is higher by 1mm than it is when opposite. It will give you more turn-in steering at the expense of less mid-corner. It affects the amount of droop so you have to reset it if you switch. I always ran it Left C2 Right C1 on my 414M and Evo3.

Default Understeer problem

Hi guys. Would like to ask anyone on how to improve steering on Evo3S. I just built the car and it understeers too much. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

what blocks ar you using in the rear? What springs/oil are you using? what's your ride height? How much droop do you have front and rear?

The real question is, where are you getting your understeer? entering a turn? in the middle? exiting a turn? on Power? off power?

that will narrow it down more.

Thanks for your quick reply.

Rear Block: A
Springs (Front): Tamiya Blue
Springs (Rear): Tamiya White
Ride Height: 5.5 (all around)
Droop: 4.5 front and rear

I experience understeer when entering a corner and on power.

It should allow you to adjust the tension of the sway bars.

So tightening the grub screw would increase tension and vice versa?

That setup should give you a lot of steering... If you're having understeer then it's likely a tire related problem. Make sure you have the right tires and compound for your track.

racenut - i'll race at hobbytown this weekend. you running stock? even though I built your Evo3 you will never beat mine. hehehe
