Is that the TB Evo3 ? Hmmm......... looks good. Just got to have it. The chassis seems a little narrower than the previous 2 and I guess you need all the samll electronics for it too. This one should be able to fight it off with the 414 and the rest of the competition. Well we just have to wait for it

Yes it comes with the blue aluminum bones just like the 414M2 Worlds.

Kit red springs must mean that they expect the moment about the roll axis to be very small because of the narrower setup. I want to know how the heck they are doing the central posts. It does not appear that the shaft is offset though I would like for it to be (TA02/TL01 style baby....) Looks like they went back to the TB01 gearboxes to free up the drivetrain again. Minus the hingepin mounts because of the 414 style blocks of course. That and you get to drop off all the unnecessary lead weight. The drivetrain appears to be back to normal height though the top deck is lowered still. The aluminum steering rack is a welcome addition as well. It's basically a stiffer version of the car I've been running for over a year now. But now I will have lower pivot adjustment. I'll be getting one asap.

It will sell for about $312.00usd in Japan and will be available in Dec. just in time for the Christmas season. I know what's going on my wish list...

I dont know if it was the new tires, new radio or the new body or even all together, but my evo 2 was HOOKED UP yesterday at our bimonthly race! Man it was fun, I just had a way too slow motor(dont have a lathe to work on them yet) I couldnt keep up in the straights. sorex 32r's are great! the altezza body is beautiful! and that MX-3 is wonderful in the hand... funny how i could out runem through the curves, but come the straight...

I WILL BE READY next time!


I LOVE MY EVO2!!!!

ruf/x414x: im am quite interested in the new evo - moreso now that it has proven itself in the All Japan Nats making the A-Main. but i was wondering if you would know if the evo 3 will look more like the so called "TB 2.5" that was seen in the Jap Nats or like the pic posed by ruf (the one with the red springs). just wondering coz the 2.5 pic interests me a bit more. not coz it looks prettier with all the blue alum, but more coz of its design. take away the color difference and you'll notice the 2.5 seems to be using a different gearbox and the bulkheads look similar to those in the 414 line. the shock towers also differ in design meaning shock mounting angles are likely to be different (obviously affecting handling). ang again, camber link mounting also differs in both pics. would you guys know which of the two pictures posted will be closer to what will actually be released end of this year??? thanks for any insghts!

ROBORAT: That pic of the "Evo 2.5" is just a heavily modded Evolution 2 and you can make your own using over the counter parts. I bet it's no better than my heavily modded TB01

The pic that I posted is the official Evo 3 and thats the one that's in production now.

fabolousRC: You can use the hard arms on the Evo1 and TB01. I use them on my TB01 and I'll post some pics tommorow.

The evo steering rack includes the exact same steering arms as the TB01 alloy arms but, anodized a different color. If you want to use them on your 01 you'd have to buy some additional items (if you could find them).

I know which piece(s) you are talking about, x414x. I figured, if I can replace that part with a screw or something similar to replace that piece(s), I think I should be okay.

is the $15 includes the front arms only or both fronts and rears?

Does the $30 steering racks comes with bearings? if not, does it use 5x8mms like the rest of them?
