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.
I've also found some issues with the car after a few more runs, front one way diff gear tends to strip on impact, leaving high spots in the drive train.
Going to a full time 4wd setup might be easier on the gear since the ball diffs will have some play in them which can absorb most impacts. A bigger bumper to absorb the shock would also be useful
Of course it would help not to crash into anything in the first place
Having said that, in terms of performance it has a slight edge over my 414m2 in terms of punching out of corners. Top speed is more or less equal. I'm only running a stock motor on a loose ashphalt track so chassis flex isn't a big issue. In my opinion, the car is good but not good enough to ditch a 414m2 for.
I'll be doing the opposite of BK and putting more time into the Evo3 instead of my 414m2 though. Not because the 414m2 is rubbish but because I prefer a punchier car.
But yeah the stripping of the gears is annoying. I've already placed an order for 10 more diff gears
