I think it comes with 4 degree blocks. I'd likw to know if they have anything with LESS caster, somewhere along the lines of 2 degree.

Yes it does help with the gears because your using a diff gear not the one diff gear.

And it's sort of like a one way, coming out of a corner it's like a one way, but going into a corner you have breaks.

The main problem is understeer into the corner, but you can adjust your driving to work around it.

Personally I think it's good for tight tracks with lots of sharp turns (180's) if you have a smooth flowing driving line then I would stick to the oneway.

Thanks Sushi Boy. Does anyone else know if optional caster blocks are available for the EVO3 or EVO3S.

The Tamiya track is one of the reasons for getting the Surikarn

Its Surikarn time !!!! mine's on the way also. Does anybody out there know of somebody or some company who might be keeping a "library" of Evo setups ??? Sure would be nice to have a quick access source for all the great (and some not so great LOL) setups that team drivers and us mere mortals have posted or are willing to share.

Well, I'm not a team driver, but I found a very nice setup for carpet racing if your interrested.

It gives you a lot of grip and great corner speed. It even takes care of the negative side of racing a oneway ----> It makes it posible to use the brake, so you should be able to win the braking duals when entering a corner, without ending up rear first.

just pm me, and I'll make a sheet for you.

Take care

I've got a Surikarn also and have been unsuccessful in finding a setup sheet for asphalt. Anybody have a good sheet to use for this car? I'll be racing at speedworld in Roseville, CA (fyi) as soon as I find a good setup and get some good practice sessions in!!

question for you all..... this is a when i run my EVO and let off of the throttle, my car immediately turns to the left. could this be a weight distribution thing, or . . . .? i have set it up on a Hudy board and everything looks great. runs straight at full throttle, but as soon as i let off, immediate spin out!! any suggestions?
thanks

SpineX- I would be interested in seeing your setup for carpet. Are you talking about rubber or foam tires on carpet? Because I would like to note that if you are running foams on carpet, you run very little or no droop which will allow you to use some brakes without spinning the car out. However, assuming you are talking about mod foams on carpet, your best bet is to run a diff especially if the track is tight.

Tony (defMondo)- sorry bro, but I'm not with you on the spools for tight tracks idea. Spools primarily work best on rubber tires with a large sweeping track. The reason for this is that the spool binds the front tires at low speeds where there is weight on both front tires while turning. Most drivers find that a spool will not only cause understeer (correct there) but they find a loss of corner speed at low speed turning. This is especially true in high traction situations such as foam carpet racing. I have a friend that I race with and he runs a spool everywhere. He is a very good driver and makes less mistakes than I do, but I usually have better lap times because I run a diff or oneway. He doesn't see that I'm gobbling up real estate on the infield when we race together. Bottom line? Learn to race with a diff, oneway, AND a spool. Then find out which one works best for the application (track) and use it.

hierog, I won mod at speedworld last week with the EVO3-S. My setup is pretty much stock.

except:

60W in the front
50W in the rear

associated silver all around

second hole in on shock tower (front)
third hole in on shock tower (rear)

Yellow sway bar in the front
none in the rear

B block in the rear

5mm ride height all around

9mm droop all around (bottom of chassis to bottom of tire)

I'll give you a copy of my set up sheet this sat, If you'd like one.

tires make the biggest difference...I ran 36r's with zenon black

hope this helps!
