so the TBevo3S was just developed by tamiya to entice Surikarn into liking the EvO3, not by the world champ himself? hmmmmmm

But at least other drivers are winning with the evo3, jun and the rest! hope SUrikarn, can tune his Car, soon so the EVo3 with his name on it will prosper.

Just off topic: look at the HPI Pro3, after they attached, Hara's name into it----- the Pro4 came! Will we be seeing an EVO4J (J-for David Jun?) heheheheheh
Just thinking aloud!!!! Peace to all and happy racing!!!

Surikarn said that the 414m2 was a little bit faster when the evo3 was released in november. But the Evo 3 got further developments in the suspensiondepartment the months after and is currently faster than the 414m2. The switch to the evo3 has nothing to do with Miura leaving tamiya. Itīs all about the benifits of the shaftdrive and I know firsthand because I own both cars.

Yep, thats the 64 pitch.

I use the same gearing when using the monster motor.

I use 36 for MVP and P2K2
and 38 for P2K.

When i was in Japan Surikarn said that the evo 3 was far better as the 414 always had a very slight amount of push when entering a corner where as the evo 3 turned in fast and hard out of the box as the weight distribution was better. Rick

Not the case in Australia.

They're allowing any Tamiya chassis in GT1 class, including 414, EvoIII etc. Even the Surikarn Edition EvoIII should be OK, if it appears on the shelf before the cutoff date of August 2003.

For GT-1, any chassis should be okay. For GT-2 class, a car with a tub style chassis is required.

The car really doesnt need any hop-ups, but if your like me and just have to trick out your ride I'd suggest switching to Ti screws. I'm told that speedtech is going to have a full set made by square in a week or so. Also I added the new light weight front one way. I didnt weight the kit one, but I can really feel the difference when holding them together. I've also stuck on the world's type front sway bar kit, I'm not sure if this will make any difference at all since the stock bar location is just fine for average racing, but if gets looks from other racers at the track. Lastly You can add a aluminum adjustible belt tensioner from square to replace the servo mount/washer set up.
If you really have money to burn you can pick up a set of light weight bulkheads.....I've seen some on ebay for around $130-$140 range that will shed a full ounce off the car.
