team bomber is the only company that i know of that made a carbon shaft for the evo III and it was a limited production. Hebeki or JDM, do you still have one of these?

The Tamiya one is about 1.5mm longer also, and yes it does help, but you still have to shim and reinforce the bevel gear.

My used evoIII should be here on Thursday. If no one answers your question befor then-mine has the longer driveshaft in it and I'll check the color and get back to you.

no sorry. i only have the tamiya one. that one is good enough to help stop the stripping problem.

hey secret weapon

7.91 is a high gear ratio (using a 70 tooth spur and 23tooth pinion) but u might not get enough top end out of that

6.27 is a lower one(using 70 tooth spur and 29 tooth pinion) and that might get you the top end you want...

somewhere in the middle there

mainly depends on how large you track is and also how big your tires are

My evoIIISL will be made track ready tonight!! Can someone tell me where to strat on wheelbase (shims front and rear) for modified/foam tires on this ride?

I have them set so that the cars shortup front and middle in the rear.

Also-what about innner arm sweep up front? Anyone tried it on foam tires yet? What did it do for the car?

I have no experience with foams or mod...but I run mine full short w/b on both ends, with "d-a-a-a" blocks (f--->r).

It had a pretty bad on-power push with a-a up front and going to the bigger block up front seems to REALLY help with the turn-in. To me, it's very nice to drive...and I've been told the same by several other people who actually know how to drive.

If you're interested, I can give you the whole setup as a starting point. I run it at SoCal (high-bite asphalt, rubber tires).

Best car I've ever had (probably because I'm too cheap to buy an EVO 4 ), but I really like this thing.

Ive seen some setups that use a 2mm spacer behind the front arm and infront of the rear arm to give a 261 wheelbase.. but this was on asphalt with rubber tires... you could give it a shot especially if you run big foams
