yup, its MORE fun! leaving everything alone, except changing to a much harder front spring... I use copper front/ yellow rears or sometimes blue rears.... you get the car to DRifT beautifully.

going yellow/yellow (normal) you dont drift anymore, but get a bunch of on power steering.

thanks for any help
TB-02 Diff Joints 51042
3mm Diff Balls 53379
Bevel Gear 50987
F201 Diff Rings (I think)
Diff Cap Screw (2 x 25 mm) & appropriate nut
8 x 5 mm bearing
Diff Spring 9805671
Thrust Bearing 9805670

I made my own thrust bearing (see Losi & Associated cars) and it happens to be the smoothest diff I own

I also used my own diff spring (couldn't find that effer anywhere)

I belive www.ETAMIYA.com offers a kit they put together of all the nesscessary parts

Does anyone have a blank EVO 3 Surikarn set up sheet that they can post or email to me. Can not find it anymore on the Tamiya website (not there since they converted their website).

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Larry

As ever it depends on the size of your track and what brand motor it is. Some like different gearings to work at their best.

On a medium sized indoor track I have my Evo 3 geared 31/96 with a Fantom 27 stock. So for an 8 double...

Anybody tried the new suspension? I'm thinking if its worth it since the old suspension works for me. What's the difference and is it really lightweight?

It's fragile I know that...

On my local track (big big barriers) the Tamiya's with slightly less ability are struggling!

Aside from it being fragile Ive read that some people use pro4 parts to make it more durable

Pro 4 parts to make it more durable...

And Losi parts fit the Pro 4... (rear hubs do I know for a fact)

Just use the stock suspension, works well and doesn't ever break, except maybe a stripped thread on a hub.

Am I gearing wrong? I use 41-42/96 with the binary2 on a large track.
