Guys, I'm gonna stick with the Evo3, like Daf said it is a good car. I know that since I managed to get it pretty much dialled towards the end of the day....more so than ANY other car I have ever owned. But I guess nothing is perfect.
Just dissapointed that the high risk (for me anyway) of a gear failure may end up costing me.
I'll take a look at the site BK posted for some hints. BTW I also bought a spare diff case a few days ago so I'll give that a try as well.
BK: The setup I was running which I found to suit the Hoppers Indoor track:
front: blue springs, 60wt oil
rear: yellow springs, 60 wt oil
Shock positions (F/R): Kit settings
Motor: Fantom P2K2 w/stock springs red/green
Gearing: 96/34 (7.34)
Droop: No idea cos I forgot to measure
Rear toe: -2 degrees
Front toe: 0 degree
Rear blocks: AA
Front blocks: Kit setting
I also did the 2mm roll centre spacer mod on both the rear blocks and it worked a charm Loads of steering which is what you need on a tight track.
The track was really dusty at the start but it got better towards the end when the dust was kicked off the racing lines.
