John

Heya Dan, that's what I thought. I haven't actually tried putting an evo3 one way into a 201 and haven't even bothered measuring. I guess I'm too lazy at this point I've got a Tevo3 roller now and it tipped the scales at 1289g ready to run minus the body wohoo

Here's some bad news, I waded up my 414M2 tonight at SoCal (a radio hit at the end of the straight sent the car into a pole at full speed) so it looks like I have to divert some tlc over to the belted baby and away from the evo3. It looks like the evo3's maiden voyage may have to wait a week or so until I get things squared away with the 414M2 and dialed again.

Hi Guys,

I have my EVOIII 80% done last night and my god there are a lot of screws! I'll count through the screws and see how many of what type of screws are in there, and I'll price out a Ti-screw kit for you guys.

John,

Our F1RL is growing, our next race should have around 20 guys all running the F201, it would be great if you can join us. The next round will be at Citrus College's Parking lot. Hope to see you there!

rtypec,

ahhhh yes....the infamous poles at SoCal...the major reason why you don't see me there. I challenge the pole several times and right now the poles have been undefeated.

Speedtech,
They say the screw only seem a lot but they have exactly the same amount as the 414M2
91 pcs, not 100% though!

Rod,
was it badder than the last crash you had on your 414M2 rear end?

Hey Steve, we are about to start a series up here @ Burien along the same lines the main difference is no marshalling if you board it you are done just the same as the real gravel traps

Rod shelve it and run the EVO you will be amazed at the difference between the two. Seriously sorry to hear it Kevin did a similar thing down at Nats he was running the low roll and caught another car and ripped the back of the car off it tore up the lower chassis pretty hard

1. Rear uprights are 2' toe in
A block is +0'
B block is +.5'
C block is + 1'
D block is + 1.5'

So total toe in with C is 3'

Default reduced rear toe in

You can reduce rear toe in below 2 degrees by placing the C block in front and say the A in the rear. But, it'll change the sweep of the arms-which cold be a bad thing.... Or not!!! Its a set-up change on the Mission's thats very effective for dialing in "grip" on slippery surfaces or freeing up the car on high grip surfaces.

I guess-if you could find the right size CVD-you could put on a pair of Losi 1/2 degree blocks-but you'd have to make some crazy combinations of axles, wheel nuts, CVD's....... NAH!!! I'll shut-up now-zip-it!!!

Default Initial test-thumbs -up!!!

rc-zombies-I ony have two battery packs on the EVo, but immediately it felt great. Smooth and consistent lap after lap. The local hot shoe was watching and yelled out-car looks great already. And that was just an "installation" run!!! Beat up body from another car, camber all out of whack, electronics from Losi slapped in it, etc. This weekend will be the real test. I put the car on the Hudy board last night and squared the whole car up.

I am going to run 19 turn foam class Sunday against some really good drivers. If I can put it A2 or A3-I'll be stoked!!!

Steve, your right about the poles and walls being undefeated Even if you do break a track element you'll still be carring your car home in a platic bag that has "thank you" printed on it lol.

Dan, I'm not gonna shelve it just yet. Nothing money can't fix hehe.

Izzy, I would say it was 86.97% as bad as the rear end shearing off hehe.

As for the Evo3 and staying on topic, I saw David's car today and I must say, it looks dialed! I definately like how he sanded the edges of the chassis to make it look like a surfboard.
