Two questions for you ray?

1. Are you looking for more corner speed out of the car?

2. Are you looking for rear end bite?

If you are looking for corner speed there are two things you should try. 1st adjusting your wheel base. the shorter your wheelbase is the faster your car will rotate, also switch from the c block in the rear to the b block. The car may feel a little loose at first until you adjust, and depending on what springs your running will determine how much bite you get. Remember also that a softer spring doesn't mean you will get more rear traction.

Also on the front rear block, ad .07 shims to put in some anti squat, this will also help stabilize the car under acceleration. The one way can be a little tricky to get used to in shaft drive cars, but I think once you get the diff in you will see all these things come into play. I will be experimenting with mine this thursday, so I will let you know what I come up with.

Corner speed is there-but its not!! This is why-half way through corner car seems to change its attitude, but not every lap. When it does change its attitude-the front loses grip and its pushes out. his happens very quickly. When the nose stays down-the car doesnt carry the speed-it slowly scrubs itself down.

On the rear-I am already down to AA in the back (2-degrees). I might go back up to CA and get less toe in rear blocks and go for 1 degree rear toe in back.
Thanks for your tips!!!

Ray

Hi,

will probably pick up an Evo III next week. and since this will be my first shaft driven car. is there anything i need to know or any spare parts that i need to get?

if i remember correctly, some people say that the front diff may give some problems?

any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Default hi racer

if you decide to go with the evo 3 the only thing I would say to get would be a front diff kit. The only problem I have with mine is the one way gear. The car seems to handle well with it but I dont think that the gear meshes well enough to withstand an impact. Other than that the kit comes with everything you kneed.

Default advice

I currently run TA-04-R. I sold my TA-04-Pro and my XrayEvo2...and had intended to get an Evo3. Do you think the 414M2 would be a better choice? Of these 2, which car (evo3 or 414) shares more parts with the ta04? It would be nice to have common spares.
I have run alot of different cars, and tended to prefer xray over my ft-tc3. Not sure if I prefer belt cars...or just dislike TC3s...LOL.

any input is appreciated.
Ken

not of hand but if you go to the speedtech rc website he has the diff halves listed. You will also need the thrust bearing and the nut and screw and the spring, all the part numbers will be in your manual.

can the Evo III's drive train be made to run freely as compared to the cuda's?

what are the things you can do if any to make the drive train run more efficiently?

Thanks!

Default Set-up so far.

heres my work in progress set-up for carpet/foam/modified and stock.

Front

A block raised up 1mm. A block in rear. Shock in outer hole on arm, second in on tower. Yellow AE spring. 3-hole piston. Camber link long and up. TRC Plaid tires. 4.5mm ride height. Red sway bar.


Rear
A and A blocks. Shock in outer hole on arm and out on tower. Purple AE spring. 3-hole piston. Camber link long and up. TRC Purple tires. 4.5mm rde height.

Chassis is dragging on left side!!! I have a high speed push condition-which I think is caused by the chassis hitting. My TC3 and Losi at 4mm dont rub!! Dont know why ths one does as its narrrower than both cars and just as stifly sprung.

Ray, can you elaborate when you say your chassis drag on the left side?
Is that when making a right turn? does it do it when running straight?
Do you mean you push coming out from a turn - accelerating!
