Default Cleveland Setup

Hi BigDog

* oopppsss - I forgot the swaybar and shock oil in my setup details - I have added it to the original post below. I ran blue swaybars all around and ran 80/50 weight oil on the F/R repectively. I also tried a thicker swaybar (the silver one from the upper deck swaybar kit from the 414M cut to size so that it would fit on the evo)

* I have not tried the gray tamiya springs yet. I will try them at my local track.

Hey Dude,
Just saw your post.
I have no Idea about what ratio to run for 540 as I have never run 540 before. I would say you would be looking at a rollout somewhere in the 42mm area but I could be a bit off.. You are probably better off posting in the Meakin Park forum for an answer.

I might bring my Evo III surikarn Ed in to the shop next week and show it off with all the new Tech and Square bits. It looks a treat...

Thanks for the Tip Big Dog,
However I already get all my gear from Andy and have for the last year or so. He is out of the Square Gearboxes and is not sure if they are still available. I am waiting to hear from him to see if he can find some for me but am also trying other sources.

Hehe- Matt wants to use the Tamiya shocks just like Teemu...

Matt I don't have time to look the part#s up, but I believe you need the Tamiya aluminum spacer set and the 6mm balls. You probably already have the 3mm screws. Try Speedtech. You can probably tell Steve what you want to do and he'll know exactly what you need.

i used a drill bit that you can buy at any hardware store. CAUTION! THE CARBON FIBRE WILL WEAR OUT THE TIP!! but 2 or 3 tips! i countersunk all the holes with the same tip but the tip started to become useless towards the last holes.. i totally recommend this mod. unfortunatley i forgot to add this into the article!!

but it is also another flaw with the evo. the un-countersunk holes makes the car become tweeked at the slightest touch! AND I REALLY MEAN SLIGHTEST! (read brushing up against a pipe).
