Evo2 and 2.5 use TGR gearboxes which is what I believe to be one of the main weaknesses of the car. Evo3 will go back to a TB01-style gearbox and get that brutal driveline back. The bulkheads on the Evo2 and 2.5 are overkill and make the car very heavy. If anything the Evo3 shock tower positions will be improved, but probably no different. The camber links will be in similar positions to the 414.

what kind of C-hub I can use for those arms? will the stock ones work or do i need to use the TA04 C-hubs instead? What kind of driveshaft that I can use with the arms? do I need to switch to TB01 Long Universals?

the steering rack is yummy!! I found my own answer as to where can i find the posts for the steering rack. I'm still waiting to purchase a TB Evo I from someone and he will supply me with two sets of steering racks: the aluminum ones and the plastic ones. Hopefully he supply me with original two posts too so I can use the stock ones with your alu steering rack.

If the TB EVo I turned out to be slower than my TB01. I might just buy it and the TB EVO II and just shelved it for collection.

.
You can use TA04 C-Hubs or TGR C Parts (F Hub Carrier (Included with LSA kit)). No stock TB01 hubs.

while you're at it, might as well change to the ta04 racing carrier set.... you'll get a better setup, and a stronger front susp. due to the extra turnbuckle(aka torque rod, tierod, radius arm, caster holder, whatever) attached to it.

hmmm..good idea.

I'm currently running a hybrid setup using HPI RS4 Pro2 arms and they are working pretty well on me especially when I get to use the CVD

The question is, can I use CVD with these arms and which one that fits? Has anyone at least try to sneak those into the setup?

I'm planning to setup this car with a set of new gearboxes, an eagle racing motor mount (OMG it's HELLA LIGHT!!), and the Penguin chassis or replace all those parts on the current car with the arms, c-hubs, and aluminum steering racks

the internal ratio 2.6

just take the spur gear / the pinion * 2.6

for 100 ft long track
23T stock for 5 mins - final ratio around 5
8T - 9.0
9T - 8.7
10T - 8.5
11T - 8
12T - 7.5

if many small corners add 0.5
if more straight then corners reduce 0.5
