I haven't seen it, but I am not sure if that's a good idea anyway since the steel ones bend enough as it during a crash.

I'm preparing for the LRP challenge and was trying to read an article about Surikarn's car during last years race. Could a German speaking person please help me with the translation of the following sentence: (especially the word senkrechte)

Surikarn setzte in den Finalläufen gelbe Stabis vorne und hinten ein, weisse Federn vorne und hinten und er verwendet eine senkrechte Dämpfer-Position.

Thanks!

senkrecht = perpendicularly, so I bet it means that he had his shocks on the most vertical position.

Surikarn used yellow anti-roll bars front and back; white springs front and back and the shock absorbers were mounted in the upright position.

Re: Shocks: it doesn't actually say anything other than the shocks were in an upright position, so I guess it would be the most upright position.


Cheers, Mark.

Thanks, that's what I thought aswell.
Too bad I don't know what oil he used...
At least I've found more than enough setups to get a good starting one.
Hopefully the car will be bulletproof with the Jürgen one-way and the lightweight driveshaft!
Anybody else here going to the LRP challenge with an EVO III?

Surikarn used Tamiya 500 oil all around. 3 hole pistons, 2 black O-rings in each shock.
Rear dampers in position number 4.

We saw some in Japan last year. I may be wrong but it was tech or square that had the ti suspension shafts. I didn't get them but my friend did. They were like 1800yen or something. I use steel ones as they are relatively inexpensive and I'll just slap in a new set whenever I feel like it.

Of topic but sort of related: The TA04 flourine coated shaft set is a direct fit with the 415...kinda cool because I have a buku load of them in my pitbox

Yeah, all the cars use the same TRF Shocks, so the shafts will be the same as well.

He meant shafts for the suspension, not for the shocks.

Hi Guys,

We got some new hop-ups in for the EVOIII including Ti-Axles, aluminum rear hubs, and light weight center shafts. Also a few new Tobee Craft hop-ups as well.

Lastly, we should be receiving the first batch of EVOIII Spools within the next few weeks.

Steve Wang
