Davioh,

Recommend you to buy more different types of sorex tires.
Also more batteries packs would be great.

EGR is quite nice. I practise there also.
Lot's of helpfull guys out there.

Hi Davioh,

Currently still driving a 414M2.

Wanted to buy an Evo3 but prices were fried.
Maybe wait for updated version.

When Evo 3 came out it was around 1.8K
I hesitate...... bummer...

hmm i like the title:extra cash
if u have the urge to spend it all in 1 go
get like 2-3 sets of tyres.tamiya A..tamiya B and maybe Sorex 36R.
it makes a LOT of difference to handling when using different tyres.for that matter springs and shock oils will too.
and since ur under quarantine..hehe
i got some EvoIII spares im trying to sell (blatant promotion ) i'll send them over to u.only the Postman under risk hehe.
the parts that breaks the most in EVO III:
suspension shafts,suspension mounting blocks,diff gear.
so what i did was:get more shafts and blocks on standby...changed to a front diff instead of one-way.

i think u shoud just get the new 1-way, a reason why i didn't choose Tamiya
is that they modify their car too often, every 6 months u have a new version of the 414, if I had a 414 m2 i would have felt very frustrated when they would have release he WCR or the SSG version,and it is the same for the evo3, 6 month after the release of this chassis, there is already a new version with a lot of mods
concentrate on driving and setting, yes buy tires, spring and oil, different pinions to set ur gear ...perhaps brush for ur motors too
do u have a good servo, that is quite important and a good charger as well .
