Default Tamiya TB Evo III setup help

Hello,

I recently purchased an Evo III. I will be racing it this weekend on an asphalt track with low to medium bite. The track is relatively smooth.

What is a decent setup for this type of track? Any specifics that you can provide would be greatly appreciated

Here's a hint. Look through the Tamiya Evo3 Thread or do a search for it. With a little research you WILL find some VERY GOOD setups.

Not to sound like an meanie, but there seems to be a lot of new threads popping up with questions that can be done with a little research in this forum. The anwers are there.

There are over 2,000 posts within that thread! I read the first 20 pages and there is no useful information. Obviously if I find nothing within the first 20 pages I am not going to search through the remainder.

Don't sit there and say that I did not search because I did. If you have something more worthwhile to say such as actually addressing my initial question I would appreciate it.

You obviously took it the wrong way.

But I WILL SIT here and I WILL SAY that you DID NOT SEARCH enough.

Now to help you out as well as others, here are the setups that were posted in the thread.

And one for Socal.

Note on this setup. Change rebound stroke to 7mm front and rear gives this setup a more planted feel with Sorex36R/HPI Green

At 6mm it is fast but very hard to drive with Sorex36R/HPI Green and really good with Pit36/Pit Medium Hard.

Thanks a lot.

I am now on page thirty within that thread. I printed a couple setups as well.

BTW it would seem to me that a more specific thread would make more sense rather than searching through 70+ pages of dialogue.

This will be my first time out at the track so we'll see what this bad boy can do.

Good luck with your race. It should be fun!

As for searching, if you click on the "Show results as posts" under the "Search Options" it will sorta narrow your results down a bit. But you are right, some of these threads get HUGE! Searching for something can be tedious.

Hi,

I am assuming that you have an Evo III.

What type of setup do you generally run outdoors on asphalt?

Thanks

What Difuser was saying is: The Socal set-up is a good starting point. Start with it and modify from there.

I went to Socal last night. I ran 50wt oil all the way around blue springs up front and yellow springs in the rear and all that I can say is damn! The car was totally hooked up. I am really pleased with the car. Now my only problem is where to find parts? I need a new shaft for the car because mine is cosmetically unappealing. Can somebody let me know where I can obtain this part and a part number if you have one.

Mr Intelligent probably is low on patience... or has not realised
that the thread began *before* the TBe3 actually shipped
- just check the timestamps. So with common sense prevailing,
wouldn't be hard to realise the "good stuff" only comes later
on in the 2000+ posts.

Me TB-newbie too, I ended up printing out the entire thread
last week so I could read it offline. Only 500+ A4 pages... most
of it was pretty useful reading, but smaller sigs might have
saved a few trees...

Obviously due to the fact that I read 30 pages of the thread it was pretty apparent that the thread began prior to the release of the Evo III nor was that in question. I merely did not have the time to read the additional 53 pages or so to gather whether or not the information in which I was seeking was listed.

It just seems to me that rather than having a thread which is extremely broad to narrow the field and maximize time efficiency. It just plain makes more sense to have a thread dedicated to just one factor rather than many pertinent to the Evo III.

By the way, how do you like your Evo III thus far?

LOVE IT!!! I've put in the front diff and it makes it very stable and easy to drive fast! Here's my setup... note* it handles incredibly during nitetime racing, but not during the day...? :P (might be my tire choice)

front
50wt, tamiya white, yellow sway, 1mm spacer under back block
-2 camber, takeoff cs32 tires, soft insert, hpi 24mm 5spokes with offset plastic blocks(2mm)

rear
40wt, tamiya blue, yellow sway, 1mm spacer under front block
B block rear. same as above.

oversteers nicely offpower and very slight push on power.
I've been wanting to try the assoc. springs... maybe copper all around or silvers, but dont have any at the moment.
