Charlie - That gear saver idea looks like it will be a really good fix, and the cheapest one as well. Let us know when they put it into production, I'd like to see how the fit is on one.

qwik and easy maintenance of the drive train [which was 1 reson for me getting the kit]

I know exactly what you mean about the TGX
I own the Tamiya 1/10 TG10r and 1/8 TGR. both have 3 peice drive shafts like the TGX, and are bomb proof. Never had a problem with them. Matter of fact the 1st TB Evolution was based off of the TG10r. I beleive the Tech Racing drive shaft should be a sure fire fix. Can't wait to get my hands on one

Default Surikarn!

Hi Guys,

I've just ordered an EVO 3 Surikarn and as this is my first step into Electric cars (only driven Nitro until now) I'm looking for some suggestions about what servos, ESCs, recievers and motors you guys would recommend for this car.

Thanks, Mark.

Mark-really, it is your choice. You do not need a super fast servo, but it is your preference. As far as esc, probably a smaller one to save some space like the LRP Quantum Comp. As far as motors, check out the ones your local track runs..whether they are 27 turn, 23 turn, 19 turn or lower. Either way, get what yiour budget allows, you can always upgrade later.

From my point of view, a fast servo would be up there at the top of the list for electronics. Makes the response of the car much better (although it will be better than a nitro car no matter what) and they are more precise with better centering.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the replies.

I can't check down at my local electric track at the moment, as it is still being built
The other tracks I go to are Nitro only, or better said, no one races electric there

Are there motor manufacturers that you'd recommend or others which you would say I should avoid? I would like to do a little competition this winter here in Germany, so I can probably check out some info on the Tamiya website.

Cheers, Mark.

Mark for me personally the only servo for any shaft drive car is Futaba's S9550 digital. Not on the cheap side but it gives you alot of room to put the other electronic items.
