Hi guys,

we are finally (Finally!) getting our second batch in stock this thursday, however, it might not be enough to even fill our back order I spoke with Fred over at Tamiya last weekend and hopefully they will up the production on this car.

Linger,

so you got an EVOIII too huh? how you like it? Drop me an email sometimes.

Where can I get wheel spacers? I recently got my Evo3 and found that the narrow wheel hexes do not allow me to use my Schumacher wheels. The wheels are 0 offset, but the hex section is too deep and binds on the rear hub carrier.

racerDave-I use washers to space out my wheels. PLain old washers!! WOrks great.

Peter-can you enlighten me on some carpet/foam tire set-up info. If not a set-up per se-at least what worked and what doesnt!!!

My car is quite good right now on our new layout-but its low-grip. I fear when the traction comes way up (by next race I think), the cars steadily going to deline in performance! compared to the TC3 and X-S's.!!

Hey ,
anybody hear anything new or more definite on a Tamiya cure for the front diff problem?? I've got to imagine they're well aware of it and how it might effect sales. Any of you factory drivers hear anything?? Thanks, Dino

Default FOAM SET UP

Hey ray

Tonight I will be working on my car, cleaning it and documenting my set up. I ran mod foam on sunday at larry's and the car was dialed, I was very happy with my current set up so I will document everything and share the setup to everyone to try out.

ray,

i found that what did not work on my car was TRC tires, and i never figured out why that was, but the car would just want to spin out on TRC's.

a spool might be a good way to go on a tight, tchnical carpet track. but only in mod.

the top deck tweaks easily, so check it often.

peter

Peter,

Thanks for the info. Great job in 12th scale by the way-you beat a lot of great drivers to put your 12th scale in the A-Main!!!!

And actually-C in Sedan was great too as there was some super stiff competition in Sedan as well. I mean-it was the Nats after all!!!

Weird on the TRC's. They are a bit harder compound than JACOS. I wonder if they were slightly delaminating. If they were-youd never know from looking at them. You have to roll back the outside ege to tell. I always CA my Purpe foam tires. CA the edge of the foam to the rim. Makes a big difference when running on high bite Ozite.

Default set ups

Hi guys

Well as I said yesterday, here is the setup that I ran in mod foam with the evo3 and found it to be very consistant.

first I start with setting the down stops. Using an associated gauge I set the front to 2mm of droop,and the rear to 4mm.

2nd I set my shock lengths to 62mm

on the front suspension mounts I add .07mm spacers under the rear block. When you do this you have to file the back edge of the mount so that the steering linkage doesn't hit. Mount the front mount flat on the chasis. Set the arms at full rear, meaning the spacers on the shafts should be in front of the arms and none on the rear. I also use the blue sway bar on the front, and instead of the one way I use a ball diff. Set camber angle to 2 degrees, and the front ride heigth at 4.5mm. I used 70 weight oil with 2 hole pistons with the red urethane bushing in the shock cap, with associated yellow springs.

As for the front diff, I run the diff tight and also I made torgue rods like on the 414 set to 56.5mm long.

Shock positions are third hole on tower and second hole on the lower arm. Camber link is in the number one hole on the upper arm position on the tower (refer to the settup sheet given with your kit for referense).

Now for the rear. On the suspension mounts I use the b block for the rear and the a block for the front. On the front mount use a .07 shim to add a little anti squat, and let the rear block sit on the chasis. On the shock tower mount the shocks on the number 5 hole and the camber links in the number1 hole and the b hole on the upright and the second hole on the lower arm. I also use the blue sway bar on the rear as well, and set the rear ride height to 5mm. I use 50 weight oil and a 3 hole piston with associated purple springs.

As for tires I run the trc double purples on the front and tan on the rear and cut them down to around 58mm. This can vary between 55-60mm which ever you feel comfortable with. And for gearing, I ran an 11x1 with 96/27 and the motor was just right.

I hope this helps anyone out there who may kneed a good setup, It may not be for every one but it really worked for me. If anybody has any more questions drop me a line.
