Hmmmm. The Evo 3 has almost everything. Is it for the look or is it to gain an extra lap?

For corner speed, I'll suggest you consider a fast steering servo. It's often a overlooked hop op, yet very important. I dont know what else you got, so what about tuning options, like rear toe-in hubs, extra sway bars, springs....

Their just standard shielded bearings. Did you clean them? If you clean them and get all the thick grease and dirt out of them they will roll freer, BUT will get dirty fast. This is why everyone upgrades to rubber sealed bearings.

I think the best upgrade you can get....is more track time with your car (that is if your parents let you out ) . It is relatively cheaper than buying titanium this and that, carbon this and that. Practice will make you drive your car faster and smoother. Just my 2 cents.

If you're not racing, there's no real advantage of upgrading, other than eye-candy. And you already got a really REALLY great car. And the greatest hop op in the world, is named experience. So spend some time practising. Practising is my biggest limit, if I could double my track time....
