The downtravel is the distance I can lift the front or rear of the chassis before the tires no longer touch the ground. It can also be defined as droop.

Woops, and in order to get 2 degrees of toe in the rear, use the A block instead of the C.

Default EVO III Production

What's the story with Tamiya's product strategy?

According to Rainbow Ten, there will be no more EVO III production beyond Feb! Is anyone able to confirm this?

How do they expect cusomters to commit when their own commitment is unclear? Not to mention the fact they are producing two top end tourers of completely different design concurrently... EVO/414.

You don't see Associated or Losi doing that... or anyone else for that matter. Then again, no-one else has as much R&D money as Tamiya!

Weaponx, that's correct! the "A" blocks are 0degress and since the rear caster blocks are already 2degress you will still have a total of 2degress.

even though production is slated to stop by February. If demand will exceed there expectations they will re-produce. According to Fred of Tamiya America. Also, most likely an evo 4 and 5 will be produce. If you look at the stickers it comes with it will show evo 1 to 5

Default usable spur gears ....

Salutations earthlings!
howdy! awhile ago,i experienced difficulty getting gear ratios for the evo3 as it only comes with 90t and 96t.
if you guys are experiencing the same concerns,you could actually try 64P gears up to 102t but you'll have to file off abit off the top plate.
this will kinda expand your gear ratio possibilities.
i'm also ratherdistressed at the fact that Tamiya is discontinueing the evo3,i haven't even got it running right yet.
shld have just gotten an x-ray or sigma
duh

Yes I agree, I don't quite understand the concept of these limited edition cars and then the fact that they wont let you compete with it in certain Tamiya events because of their exclusine nature... What gives???

What events will they not let you compete with it at?

All of the Evo and 414 cars are TCS-legal (in the US, anyway).

I remember seeing a flyer in one of the LHS several months ago for a Tamiya Race in Sydney and in the small print it said that the Tamiya EvoII chassis was not eligible for entry due to its limited availability.

Default yes ...and there ARE better cars.....

Salutations Earthlings!
i agree with you Steve.....i don't live in the states,i am in Singapore where the racers are very competitive because the only rules are: no brushless motors, no foamies, min weight 1500gms<for either 2wd or 4wd>so a car like the evo3 is really not optimised for cheesy racers like us over here.waaaayyyy toooo heavy for options.
oh well. bought the car,live with it....
