Make sure your plastic diff covers are not rubbing on the gears...

Usually I'm running 13.5t boosted and modify 4.5t with some boost and turbo on my belts Tc

My evo is running 30-40% more temp for the same setup.

Any ideal?

Hello guys,

I'm still new with the a700l u.s spec, and have some gearing questions. The track I run on is 73x40 it's tight with some 180's. I do not fell that it is coming out of the turn as hard as it can. I'm running a EA killshot with 12.5 rotor 80 spur and 47 pinion.

I want to get more rip out of the corners, should I go with a smaller spur? like 75 or 77?

Thanks for your help,

No, you would want a bigger spur gear, or smaller pinion. I ran 80/44 on a d3.5 on carpet tracks that are bigger than yours so I suspect you are overgeared.

+1 on the overgearing theory. If you're on a track with a lot of slow corners, you might want to try a pinion in the 40/41 range and work your way up if needed.

I think a lot of us use the stock servo mount to attach the fan to the motor...seems to work very well.

Your running a 3.5ish FDR which is high for a tight layout on a track that size. Try a 44 or 45 pinion. Make sure your timing is set appropriately as well.

Thanks for the help guy's,I'm going to have a test day Saturday to get it locked in.

Again Thanks,

p.s. Heat in the motor is only getting to 130 to 135 after 6 min., so its not getting worked to hard. But will try a lower pinion before going to crazy.

I prefer the aluminum chassis for carpet. I do not use a topdeck, but some guys do, its more of a personal preference.

+1 to Mikes post. I feel the aluminum CA01AL chassis offers the best corner speed option on carpet. Don't forget to order the chassis stiffener brace, AM30-1 when ordering the chassis as well as AM24! Also its nice to get an extra pack of P06-1 so both chassis can be setup.

Hi all,
I've been testing my Evo on a big asphalt track.
I'm using the standard setup for the Evo, which is designed for carpet.
I don't have enough steering off power and my rear end gets loose every time I hit the brakes or get out of the corners. The only difference to the standard setup is my diff oil. I'm running 1000cst.
I'm running non-boosted 10.5 and a Speed6 shell.
Can anybody please give me hints to get the car dialed in? It's really undriveable at the moment
Cheers.

The goal is mid-may. Fingers crossed -- it will make it for the reedy...
