hey guys, I've been messing with my car's settings for the first time in about a year...anyone have a good outdoor asphalt setup using a front diff? Track is usually not treated...tight and small.

another question... when setting the droop, I use the TC3 gauge. according to the manual, 3mm of screw should be sticking out of the arms...which translates to #4 droop in rear from last part of arm, and #5 droop in front from the bottom of the pivot screw...OR #6 or#7 from the last part of the arm... How do y'all setup the droop on yours using the TC3 gauge?

hey guys

whats the easiest way to shed weight on an overweight evo 3??? My car tips the scales at 1545 way over the limit for the usual touring car events. My electrics arent that big i mean they aint tiny either but thats not the problem i think. What are some good aftermarket parts to buy for the car that will lighten the load alittle bit. Is the square center brace worth it??

thanks

thats odd...last ROAR race I attended, my car (evo3) was under weight by 5 ounces....once I put the transponder in the car it was just right.

stock evo3 with stainless screw set, titatinum turnbuckles, lrp quantum competition esc, monster stock motor, 72T spur from rob racing, alum. pinion, hitec fm receiver(small red one) HF303, futaba digital servo(cant remember #...but cost $100) ...proline stratus 2.0 body, 190mm, with hand out wheels/tires CS-27s...oh yeah, and a front diff...


you know, it might have been 5grams, not ounces. :P I dont remember what they used that day...but the weight of the handout transponder is how much I was underweight by.

i dont know what you are doing wrong there dude i have a tb evo3 surikarn and it weighs 1488g rtr i have a jr synthethised reciever an lrp qc2 standard steering servo a 540 silver can and a set of the original 3300 gp's in it with foam tyres and nemesis shell. i think rubbers come in about 15g heavier in total compared to foam. my car is stock except for aluminium rear uprights from tamiya so i could play more with roll centre.

The esc u have is a tiny bugger and mine might weigh a bit more. well thanks for your input ill look into those aluminium uprights, maybe they might cut a bit of the weight.

Is the easiest way to access the motor mount by removing the top ball connector of the shock from the shock tower and unscrewing the turnbuckle from the red part which holds the top deck. I tried to unscrew the top deck but the screw i was unscrewing stripped its head, damn titanium!

The easiest way to the motor mount is to remove the shock and then just slide your wrench under the turnburckle for the top screw and under the A arm for the bottom one. I generally try not to undo the arm incase I upset the settings of the turnbuckle. As for the stripped screw try drilling it out.... nasty work but it will get it out.

where about is that screw stuck?? in the aluminium bit?? If it is maybe the only option would be to buy a new alu bit and then try to drill the old bit out.... worth a shot if you want to keep racing
