i was going to say it sounds like that it may just be your drive style if you are running 19t+ if not here is the setup i run and it feels nice

1.5 degree camber all round
blue tamiya springs on front and red on the back
40w oil front 30w oil back
ride height 6 front and 7 back ( i hate scratching that chassis! )
droop.. i cant remember, i use to use no droop and remove them and it was fine. the kit settings are wrong as they are for the 2.5mm chassis aparently, i changed my droop and it made it better, cant remember what to though!
a changed the suspension block at the back to block B

nothing else i can quite remember....

i used this setup with a 1way and diff seemed just right for both

I'm trying out a bunch of different cars right now, to see which one fits my driving style best. I'll propably be selling the Surikarn to go onto the next car, I have 2 more cars that I want to try... If anyone is interested in it, please contact me.

Default TC3 diff mod

Has any one tried to just ream out the TC3 diff gear to fit the larger 3mm balls? I'm trying this right now but ran out of spare diff parts. Thought I had diff rings but leave it to Tamiya to use a different size than everyone else.

Are you letting off the throttle totally when you enter the corner? If so, ease off but try keeping 'on-power' just a little bit.

I have Defmondo from this board to thank for that tip, it works for me!
Hey hey JohnA is back Long time no see

Yeh taking the throttle off completely can cause the rear end to get loose. If your ESC supports it, try dialling in some drag brake.

You could do that, but under hard acceleration the gear would shift on the larger balls and basically give the same results as the stock gear.

hey guys

I own the Evo 3 Standard, and am upgrading it to Surikan level, can anyone list all the differences between the two cars?

So far I have:

Surikan white outdrives
Carbon Backing plate for the one way
Allow blue bits for the upper arm mounts (front and rear)

As far as I know, the only other difference is the:

titanium screws
3mm chassis
shock towers
rubber sealed bearings
and lightweight rear unis

i won't worry about the 3mm chassis or bearings though.

thanx guys.

Thanks everyone for your help about the EVO3 bit loose off power (entering a corner).

I noticed that by adjusting my driving style a bit ... the problem has not been entirely solved but reduced a lot ... maybe it is a matter of getting used to the front 1 way ... more than anything else!

I was not using brakes ... but I was taking the throttle off completely before entering the corner at the last moment! I have the KO PRO transmitter and can surely adjust the drag brake ...

Shall I increase of decrease the drag brake? And what effect does this make?

McLaren- drag brake is adjusted in the ESC. Make sure you are running the profile with NO drag brake.
