Hey Steve Wang... when you expecting the next batch? Still waiting on my EVO!! I guess I'm still gonna give the EVO3 a try. Just let go of my TC3 in favor of my 414M2 for outdoor season. I need a backup car.

Thank You

We are considering bringing in some options for EVO3.



JustRC
Right now, everyone is pretty much running whatever comes stock (EVO 3 is pretty much top-of-the-line Tamiya kit for shaft driven cars). I've been browsing ebay a lot and unfortunately have not seen anything beyond Tamiya option parts (which is minimal to begin with) or if anything, it would be the one that Diva is offering...the Kai chassis kit by K models. The chassis itself is pretty rare, expensive and K models do not sell the kit outside Japan. Plus, I believe they do not accept international distributors either. I don't know if you know this, but one of Tamiya kits option producer, Cross, factory got burnt down recently.

If you have any other brand that has launched EVO3 option parts that everyone in this board does not know, please show us some samples and you might be able to generate some interest in purchasing your distinguished options. I'm pretty sure you had probably read all the weaknesses of EVO3 from this board alone and I'm pretty sure you're eager to bring us the most advance and up to date options that you have acquired, tested, and ready to present to the EVO3 owners.

Good luck =)

correct me if I'm wrong...but isn't it possible to use the TB01 gear diffs in the evo3? fabolous sold me a TB01 rally that has super smooth diff action with well worn in diffs... so smooth in fact, that i thought it had a ball diff very loose in there. I know they're really not as adjustable as the ball diffs, but I dont see why putting 1000wt or whatever diff oil in there wouldnt acomplish the same thing. plus parts are readily available. and we wouldnt have to worry about breaking plastic outdrives either.
I'm gonna try it out when i get home.

Kilruf,

I'm still waiting for the next batch. Hopefully we'll have it soon, I'll check with my supplier today to see if they got it in.

Thanks

now the question is... why would you want the David June setup? what does it do compared to the stock setup? More turn in, More stability, harder to drive? Will the tail swingout on asphalt cuz its setup for med/high traction carpet?

I would think aluminum outdrives and a spool (solid front axle) might be big hits w/ EVO3 fans-but remember-theres not a lot of EVO3 in existence and even less people willing to pay big bucks for a part that may or may not be machined perfectly or durable enough or light enough. Make the parts-but dont expect to sell hundreds!!!

Aluma :

Trust me, you don't want to deal with the diff outdrives

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...=++&search3=Go

of the gear diff. They are as soft as butter. Even the suppose-to-be-option hardened ones are softer. The problem is that the slot become wider and wider to the point where the dogbone interfere the diff action by wanting to get stock inside it. Don't know how to explain it better.

Now, what's wrong with plastic outdrives ? I wanted to get rid of my steel outdrives in favor of plastic ones and you want to replace your plastic one for steel ones.

Default WOOHOO!! I GOT MY EVO3! HEHEH

Hey everyone. I just finished building my EVO 3!!!! She's so gorgeous ! heheh.. Now I just hope she runs as great as she looks. I just had one question. This was the first kit I built, and it went a lot more smoothly than people precieve it. Is it just Tamiya kits that are nice and smooth? Everything fit so perfectly. Another thing is, Anyone have any suggestions on what I should stock up in? pretaining to parts? I have a good load of spur gears, Suspension arms, a 2nd set of shocks (414M2 style), and sparet screws and nuts. I heard rumors that the tranny goes out quick. I only run stock, so should I worry? Would it be smart to get spare parts tranny parts and diff parts too? thanks for the help.

EVO2 question

Hey out there in San Fran, congrats on the new evo3. I race an old evo 1 on an ashphault stock class and just wanted to ask you about the rear diff on the 3rd gen chassis, since you just built one. Is it the same grey aluminum number that requires you to glue in the side that has the adjustment screw? I had mine fall out on my driveway on the first test run, I reglued it with some slow setting CA and it's never broken loose again. To adjust your diff you have to take the rear diff pod off the chassis, unfortunately. The evo2 had the same setup, what about yours?
If it's different, I'll admit I'm intrigued and may have to get one too! Johnboy.
