The reason the blue and white springs were on is because they worked best.

On carpet the yellow springs were just too soft with foams and the level of grip. It rolled about far too much!!!

I did use that car to win the A final... when you got it was setup perfectly for your local track...

hey what do all you good guys use for the center brace of your TB Evo 3's ??? I had to take the massive plastic wall out of my car on the weekend because my car is just too fat!!!! Are there anything aftermarket pieces that are worth the weight saving and money?? And is running commando the best idea??

Also whats the best method to clean out your front one ways... what sort of spray do you spray into the mechanism and what oil is a good one to replace the old stuff that you have just sprayed out.. any help would be much appreciated.

One of the best option parts for the EVO3

Something I saw Charlie S. from Novak did on his EVO 3 a couple of years ago was he removed the stock center brace and doubled up the top carbon fiber deck (he also counter sunk the top deck of the 2). He said it was stiff enough and it did not ad as much weight as the plastic center brace.

Yes I also removed the stock center brace very soon after I used the Square gearboxes. As the Square gearboxes are from aluminium the chassis was very stiff even when using the stock 2.5mm chassis. So the removing of the center brace worked better for me and also saved about 10gramms. I think the 2.5 mm chassis with the Square gearboxes is at least as stiff as the 3mm chassis with the plastic gearboxes and there is no reason for a doubled upper deck at least not for rubber racing. But I also countersunk some of the holes of the upper deck. These are the holes for the servosavers and the motormount. Thatīs working very good and I had no tweaked chassis with this setup again.

I think you should try at R10 or Hobbymania. Maybe Speedtech also has them.
