Its been discuss before. Basically, it wont make you any faster. Yes, I belive so many people has done it already. It weights 1490 with fully loaded electronics and GP3300 batteries.

Go to my signature below if you interested for getting all of those.

Rick Draper.. Surikarn got paid to use the EVO. "Some" even "said" that they release the Surikarn special RED version to just make the man happy and keep using TB since he prefer the 414 still. And some of us just believe or still prefer belt driven car. And yes, there are no announcement that Tamiya will stop its parts availability for TRF 414 series.

I bought one from Ultimate too. With that kind of pricing, it's just too tempting.

No, I've never seen anyone use them. I'm not sure if they would change the geometry any. Most all the 414 drivers up here went EVO3. I'm too poor to get an EVo3 at this point.

Actually on the old thread people where using them. They are the same spacing for the screw holes but they give u 2mm higher roll center from stock. I think we should try and see if we can get that old thread back up to the top. It had alot of good info.

It would be all roll center changes. Dont worry about the E3 - it is sold. The 414 is the better game.

When i spoke to Surikarn in person in Japan last year he said the Evo 3 was far better than the 414 as the Evo 3 had a lot more initial steering and that he prefered it over the 414.

Hopefully running the Evo 3 S in the nationals next year, if Tamiya dont sort a team out then I think some of the drivers are going to try and sort something out as someone has contacts for motors and batteries that shud give us a fighting chance! Rick

I think the M2 is easier to setup for mod and the differences between belt and shaft I lean towards the consistancy of a mod M2. EVO3 is quicker but sometimes it gets a little hairy in mod and getting the exact setup. For stock I do like the EVO over the M2 though. If I ran 19T I probalby would lean towards the EVO.

In the hands of a good driver the M2 is still very stout. I am not eager to dump it over the EVO its cool having both. Which has not been a normal thing for me to do.
