I'm using a 21" monitor here at work and the setup sheet looks like 1:1 in scale to the actual evo III. Hehehe... Keep on posting and we'll probably spill over to the next page...

Just got my Evo III today and was wondering how to gear this thing for 9X2, 10X2, and Stock motors. I can't figure out rollout, so you could please give me Pinion/Spur sizes in Metric 64 and Standard 48 Pitch gears. I only have four metric 64 pinions and would rather run 48, but will run what works best. Thanks fellas...

Default Carpet foam tire set-up evolving.

The Teacher-I would also raise the front roll center (as previousely suggested by MRodney). Put a 1mm shim under the rear hingepin block and a 0.5mm shiim under the front hingepin block for a slight antidive. The higher roll center plants the front tires harder while eliminating some chassis roll (which makes the chassis hit the carpet=baddd) and the antidive gives more exit steering. You will need to file the rear hingepin block t a 45 degree angle to clear the screws on the steering system. You'll see what I mean when you re-install everything. I started with a course file and finshed with a smoother file and it looks beautiful. Like factory!!!

Also-I may I not get to test anymore on Sunday as my last one-way gear is going south in a hurry and theres no way its gonna last practice, three heats and a main!!! I'll try and run it in the third qualifier when traction should be at its greatest and see how it works.

Yes-please change the link to the set-up sheet to a URL instead. That way we can go look at it-but not have mouse all over the screen to read one sentence on my 14" moniter!!!

Yes, just take the last 0 out and it's the equivalent 600=60, 50=500, 40=400 etc..., but I don't know if it is exactly the same formula.

Hey guys

haven't been around for a while, but I come bearing good news:

Last friday I ran my evo3 and pulled the quickest laps of the night, beating a very quick TC3 however the TC3 had me in the straights due to better batteries.

I run in the Pro class, the master's class is above Pro and I beat all their lap times, however their consistency was better, down to driver skill i guess. Only problem I had was my tire tore itself in 2 (thats right, it practically popped), rubber and insert both torn in half. Caused me to loose traction and hit a wall, bending my axle slightly, however I still came 3rd in the next race with a bent axle and borrowed tires

Once the evo is dialled, its a brilliant car. everyone is complaining about those one ways but i'm yet to strip one, weird.

bye for now guys

Guys
Need driving instructions with the front one way.i have only ever been experienced with diffs in the front ...but the Evo doesnt come with it so i gotta use the one-way instead...
coming out from 50-100% full power if i brake just a little my car would turn around(180).is this normal?
next..so how do i slow down if i cant brake?
actually i would appreciate full instructions as to how to drive with a front one way...
thanks

I ran my Evo 3 awhile ago and the car is fantastic. I also noticed that braking is a problem which turns the car that is caused by the front one way. Having the schottky diode on the motor will probably help, just let go of the throttle and car can slow down. Although not on full stop but thats the least it can do. Or probably learn to drive without using the brakes.

hey Lee, i have the same trouble driving my oneway.
on tarmac its great(i can even brake with only a little wiggle in the back) but on concrete, i hate it it spins rite out with just a little brakes.
but i'll tell you how i drive it on the tarmac

into corner - power
midcorner - off power
outof corner - power
i'm prolly wrong but i think you want alot of off power steering.

what i've been trying to do is scrub off some speed into the corner with understeer, then rotate thur off power then nail it out.
doing this i can go fast and no need to brake.
btw, i'm just learning myself

Lee and GT,

Check your rear ball diff. It sounds to me that you guys have assembled the rear diff too tightly.

You should be able to brake the car without the car going 180. if the rear diff is too tight, it will lock the rear end of the car completely when you let go of the throttle, which cause it to do a 180.

TRF-Powered - cool thanx i'll try that as soon as i get a chance.
if thats all it takes i'll be wrapped! i do run it fairly tight.
i've order a diff now as well, should have it in about a week.
i'm out of action at the moment my EVO meet with a pole and bent a A Block, a screw and suspension shaft. it was full speed with my stocker and it was nasty but the car came off pretty well(not as good as the poll) so i'm waiting on the suspension shaft kit. no more racing on my driveway i think, its a nice tarmac surface but the pole are dangerious.
Lee- let me know if loosing your difff helps? as i wont be driving for maybe a week or 2

Default Square EVO 3 parts

I have noticed that Square will be releasing chassis parts for the Evo3 (3mm lower, F&R shock mount etc.) thanks for the info. Dan

Can anyone out in thread land translate the release date of these products...would be helpful in planning for the Reedy event.
