I've got the Hudy setup system + an MPS tweak system, so I can do the full setup ok - thanks for the answer, though.

I was just concerned I had built the shocks wrong - they seem nice and smooth and seem also to function well, so nothing much to worry about


Probably most of my running will be on tarmac (purpose built outdoor track + car parks) - does the ride height have to be higher to prevent too many chassis scrapes - I take it the carbon doesn't stand up so well to scrapes?

Cheers, Mark.

i think it hold up to the scratches pretty good, but it all depends on where and how u drive it i guess.

my cars only ever touched the surface of my local track.

im guessing if you were to ride on bumby grounds put the ride height up up up and roll bars on.

at the track i take my roll bars off

Oh man I'm stupid!!! I had the shocks unloaded when the springs were loose and the pre-tension colar was set to less than 3.5mm Under load, even fully turned back, the springs are under a little load - I'll keep my mouth shut in future

Thanks Evo_Uk - my local car park is pretty smooth and my local track is great

I'm still undecided whether to go for a Quantum Competition ESC or not - I want to run in the Euro-Cup (if I get everything ready in time) and therefore I'm only going to run a 17T Motor.

I'm still looking for a servo, too. Fav. ist def. the Futaba S9550 - any other suggestions?

Cheers, Mark.
Hi Mark

I use the KO Propo 2123 in my evo3 SE. It's a bit bigger than the futaba, but it's just as fast, and very durable.

Concerning Speedo's I'd go for the Quantum Comp. right away, you might need the extra turns later on. (I use the LRP v7.1, but I'm also getting af Quantum Comp)

I use some "3M" Brand Clear protective film for the front and rear of my chassis. If you cut a piece to cover a couple of Inches at the front and rear it will protect your chassis from scrapes. My chassis is still like new and I run on a parkinglot track.
You can get it from Motorcycle shops in a sheet about A3 size. It is very thin and adds minimal weight but it is tough and does not come off until you want it to

I knew there had to be another reason why I wanted to move to Germany. Looks like one of the best tracks I have seen. Wish the States would have something that cool. Ok I will stop drooling now.

Default TB EVO III (Surikarn Edition) CVDs

The rear CVDs have the dogbone lightweight but the axle is heavy! Is there a complete CVD made of titanium, i.e. both dogbone and axle are lightweight?
