12:30AM I finished installing all the electronics and under dim street light I had my first run with the EVOIII. First impression: The car is very smooth and with a 10x2, cold tires and unprepped street surface (it was smooth asphalt) the car was pretty good, with a hint of a slight push. I'll be out at Tamiya HQ track this weekend with my Orion lap timer. I have an idea what kind of time I can do with my 414M2 so I'll see if I can do better with the EVOIII

Glad to finally hear you finshed it Steve! I ended up running the front flat w/yellow springs and the rear roll-center raised 2mm with no anti-squat w/red springs. (seems to respond to changes just like my 414M did) Very driveable (per Fred) but it still feels like it scrubs too much speed mid corner.

I'm trying to get out there again this Sat.

see ya, John

Default summer racing

Hey ray

Well it looks like I may take the plunge into 1/8th scale this year. I kind of have my eye on the new 950 so I dont think the impact is going to see much action, besides I am not really sure about the turn out for 1/10 scale, it's getting kind of dry wouldn't you think?

Mark-I'll make this short since this is th Tamiya thread......hehehe, but we talked another 10 guys into 1/10th 4wd this summer at MORR!!! I dont know about oneeighthracers though. Okay enough personal stuff!!!

testing will tell, but the rear camber link on the EVO3 looks pretty short-even in its longest position (for carpet racing anyways). If you were to put a ball stud in the tranny case-it would just break the case-right? The shiny black plastic on the Tamiya seems pretty soft. Just wondering. If not-I'll have to fabricate anothe pick-up point that comes off of the motor mount screws I guess.

Default camber links

hey ray

I dont know how the links are on the evo III, but since it doesnt use bulkheads like the evo II or the 414 it makes it a little more difficult to change the roll center by spacing the link mounting position. Also if the links are to small just use associated turn buckles, I have used them before because they come in different lengths.

Can't wait to get mine so that I can start testing for tracksides tamiya race at the end of february.

Default Evo III envy

For all of you guys racing your Evo III for the first time this weekend, I hope that you don't find out that it's better than the 414M2.

I took the plunge and bought a 414M2 more than 4 months before the outdoor season even begins here on the East Coast. NOW, it looks like Tamiya has a car that may out perform the car I bought early in my excitement. If I had only waited a month or two, I could have made a more informed decision. But nooooo..

So, don't take it personally, but I hope that you all return to your 414's realizing that it's the better chassis of the two.

I'm eagerly awaiting your weekend race reports.

Don't count your m2 out yet. They both are great cars. I have seen the evo 3 in action and it is simply great. I have also seen the m2 in action and it is also a good car. I run mainly stock so the evo 3's drivetrain being shaft driven I feel is more suited to that style of racing. However I think that the m2 is just as good a car but the belt drive seems to give up a little nuts in the infield for stock racing but modified it doesn't matter either way. Besides the best part of the evo 3 is I don't have to deal with saddle packs wich in my book is a complete pain in the a$$ that is why I never bought a m2...............

I had some runs with my Evo III, but my 414WCR is the better car, and it's the car i put all my efforts into for Modified racing.

Things that are not so good on the Evo III?... 1. too much chassis flex 2. Std cell reataining system not good for use with saddle or ladder packs.

1) Was wondering if a two speed would work. I also Have a electric boat with 4 neo motors and 4 tranmsission and the thing launches around the corners going from a 1:6 ratio in first gear to 1:1 ratio in second gear. I attached a picture of the two speed and some specs:
*****Powered by the advanced gearing system, NOVA Two Speed Gear Box is able to greatly improve both speed and torque of RC Cars. It provides racers with more steering control over sharp corner as well as the speed necessary for straight tracks. Power consumption and acceleration time is decreased to allow the car to reach max speed faster while providing a longer run time. This is a perfect gadget for racers who want to reach the highest performance and beyond.
*****Dimension 36.5 X 21mm
Voltage 6V ~ 12V (5 ~ 10 cells )
Weight 48G
Gear Ratio (Low speed) 1.6 : 1
Gear Ratio (High speed) 1 : 1
Operation Forward, Brake
*****-Nova Two Speed is an one-piece design, it is easy to assemble and is suitable for most kinds of RC cars.
-Torque and performance have been improved by the advanced gearing system. Power consumption is lower to provide a longer run time.
-Direct power transmission during high speed reduces the friction between gears. The car can run faster & more controllable, especially in high speed cornering.
-There are clockwise & anti-clockwise revolution in the gear box. Use different combinations with different types of cars.


2) Good recommended set-up for a medium size track with one straight away and on asphault - Thanks

How much did you pay for your 2speed? Sounds cool enough to try. heheh. I tried e-mailing the guy u bought it from (through the email you provided.) But he hasn't replied yet. Since you bought 3, wanna sell one to me? heheh. I don't even have my RC yet. I had an Evo2, and am Waiting for my Evo3 to get shipped to me. Thanks=)

I would like to know the number of people that would be interested in a Kai conversion "copy" for the evo 3. I am considering getting a bunch made up it would be a great deal cheaper than the $280 cost of the Kai kit and know one would ever know the difference. If I get enough interest I will go through with this venture.

I am if it's around $100.00+/-
and It would be cool if it can be done in that new Silver graphite.

There is a possiblity that Tamiya will release a Silver graphite set for the EVO-III now that they just release one for the 414M2.
