Thanks, Mark.
Just do the bottom deck, no need to do the top deck & shock towers. If you use a Q-Tip (cotton bud) dipped in superglue you can do it without getting the stuff all over your nice new chassis.

For the battery slots get a good small file, diamond if U can and just take off the sharp edges of the carbon so it doesn't cut into the cells. Another way of doing this is to wrap some emery paper round an old cell and 'roll it' in the slot.

Default Surikarn Carpet Setup

Hi all,

Just got done building my car with the stock setup, yellow springs and yellow sways. Car looks real nice.

Anyone have a good setup for carpet, large track?

What are the gear ratios for stock (Trinity Monstor Stock) with the standard 96T Spur?

What is the gear ratios for mod (9 single) with the standard 96T Spur?

Any other tips would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I started with the kit settings and changed to the following.

Front-
Ride height 4.5mm
Spring Yellow Associated
Oil 50wt
Droop 1mm
Tires TRC Plaid frts cut at 59mm
Yellow sway bar
Toe 0 degrees

Rear
Ride height 5mm
Spring Purple Associated
Oil 40wt
Droop 1.5mm
Tires TRC Purple frt/rear cut to 59mm
no sway bar yet
D and B blocks to give 1mm toe(if not 1.5mm I forgot what it was)

Monster stock motor. 96t spur and 34-36 tooth pinion depending on tire size.

You have to play with the spacers in the front to fit the foams. They rub on the upper ball cup. I used a set of wider HPI hub clamps and 1mm spacers. Works great and the car is a rocket. I have put a diff in the front instead of the one way. I ony have a few problems with the car that I don't like. Like the diff to pinion gear mesh. They're not as smooth as a TC3. And I don't like how the rear shock tower flexes when you move the body mounts. I'll just stay out of the wrecks then. Ya right!

My apologize for making it sound like there's going to be an Evo4...well duh, there is, I mean they can go all the way up to Evo7-8 according to the sticker sheet hehe.

What I meant is that there may be some new stuff coming along for the existing car.

Ugg. I feel like I'm in limbo. I don't know what car I'm going to run next month nor do I have a carpet setup...urk not a nice feeling. Hopefully things will pan out and I'll be dialed by then

Rod, you can't run the EVO3S? I guess I don't understand...

Hi BDR, I meant for the Tamiya Worlds. I don't know the rules yet, and don't know which chassis to run, motor, tires, etc., etc... I like to prepare for large races as soon as possible. You know the whole "rush rush rush so you can wait" type thing

Just to let you know, Peter Robinson, a past Gt-1 champ said they had to use tamiya connectors, and no traction compound. Thats a little scary. For the tamiya connectors put com drops on them to make them work better.

Rod do you think you can send or post a setup for socal for the evo3? I just got one and wanted to see where to start.

Thanks,
Drew

Do you have the standard Evo3 or the Surikarn version? I haven't run the EvoS at socal yet so I can't be of any help there. I'll repost the setup I've been using when I go into the office tomorrow.

Oh what about geting the drivetrain freer? Does it just have to brake in or is there something else I can do, also I saw you guys talking about puting shims on the diffs but on mine there is not move ment side to side?

Downforce: Thanks.

Why did you switch from the one way?

What front diff did you use and does it fit without any modifications?
