I'll just run it with all of the stock stuff for setup. Is anyone running the Surikarn at SoCal and can give me a shock mounting starting point?

And one more question. Is anyone running any of the Square stuff for the Evo 3? I'd think the only real functional thing they make is the upper deck supports which would just stiffen the car up a little bit...


Also, what is this part?


And this one?

I use the upper deck mounts.They help alot.The heat sink goes on the rear upper deck near the motor mount as an added heat sink for the mount.forget what the last peice was for.

I'll propably just go with the upper deck posts.. I'm guessing the 2'nd piece I posted goes between the bellcrank posts? Looks like it has room for the shaft to go between it as well. The only downside I can see is if the shaft gets bent, it will be a bitch to replace...

I'll order some Square stuff to try out, I'll give the upper deck mounts a shot, and the front upper deck mount a shot as well.

BTW, does anyone know on average what this car weighs in at with elecrtonics and a body?

I think my car was 3.6 pounds with gp3300s and all my electronics and body. Not totally sure though

Hmm, I'm wondering about grams... Does the car weigh in underweight?

Anyone tried to use the middle brace as a tuning option.
Anyone run yet without it?!
(either on the E3 or the SE3)

I have run without the centerbrace on my Evo 3 (2.5 mm chassis) and went 0.2 s faster per lap. This was on a lowgrip track.

Just a couple of pics of my New Evo III. I think the car is simply awesome. It handles so well even with stock set up.
