Post EVO3 users?

I would be interested in polling the 415 owners/racers that have switched from an EVO3 to the new car...faster... slower... the same?

After running both this past weekend... EVO3 in 19t and 415 in Mod for the first time... I felt the two cars are "almost" identical in terms of handling... I swear I felt I was driving 1 kind of car the whole day... Interesting enough though, I tq'ed in 19t(evo) and ended up with a time faster than my best in mod class...

Well I dont have an evo3 but a have a fttc3 w/c I drove for the last
three years in mod and tonight at the track the first time I lay the 415 I really notice a BIG difference.
the 415 was easy to point where you want it to go.
Considering a had the tc3 for 3yrs I knew this car inside out.
Imagine the potential on the 415!
Guess need to find a new owner for the tc3

I have been running cooler surfaces with med bite up here in the NW and to minimise the push I have removed the 4mm under the link. I also added some sweep to the rear arms 1mm at the alum hub

Default Spur gear pitch

Guys i noticed there is not much spur gear choices available for the 415, im going to need to sell most my 48pitch gears

Anyway i was wondering if the original spur gear is 64 pitch?

And whats the biggest 48pitch spur gear you fitted in the 415?

I believe it's still the 0.4 module type of spur gear. Currently I use a 64 pitch pinion gear on mine - slight difference. But if you're going to change, I would suggest to use the 64 pitch type of spur gear and pinion gear - coz' it costs less and can get it anywhere (hobby store wise).
