Colin ,
You saw Jasons's Surikarn at the KO. Completely loaded with red , even gear covers.
The biggest difference is the drivetrain. The evo 3 has much more direct drive with no slop whatsoever compared to the evo 4 which you can turn the front left wheel 1/4 turn before the back right has realised. This is because the main prop is direct into the diff gears instead of going through the ally cup into the diff housing. The evo 3 is therefore more expensive to crash head on with competitors
Also the evo 4has a final drive ratio 2.294 and the evo 3 is 2.6.
Geom is also slightly different with surikarn shock towers.

all I can say is I had the evo4 for a month. Spent all kinds of money to make it fast and it was still slow. I bought a 415msx the car is way better and faster, it compares with my xray 05 just as good.

Default Setup for a spool on carpet with Rubber tyres

Does any one have a tried setup for a spool indoors on carpet with rubber tyres ? I tried it last weekend and the car was an animal !! I would like to get a good setup for a spool as i think it will be fast if i can get it right. Any info would be good.

Cheers

the evoIII has a floating drivetrain. its a single piece shaft that goes from one gear box into the other. the evoIII uses the original suspension from tamiya.

the evoIV has a 3 piece drivetrain with a 3 or 5 piece aluminum bulkhead (instead of graphite gear boxes) with gear covers. they are easy access bulkheads so 4 screws for each bulkhead and you can service your diff/spool/one way.

evoIV MS also comes standard with the lw suspension.

we don`t run spools over here in kent either one ways or diffs
spools to much hard work lot`s of stress & unpredictable

if it`s tight track diff is the way
big open track one way

remember i/we have had DMS,CARPETWARS & A host of other clubs over here running rubber for nearly 6 month`s solid

honestly no spools

Colin,
Can you answer your own question about additives , what would you plan on using on a slightly below grip carpet tack.

yes i can
but i wanted to get a advantage over you lot when i went down there

there are 2 lot`s that are popular ,but it depends on what tyre & carpet is in use
if your using very soft tyre that lay`s a lot of rubber down then LRP/Nosram carpet is best

jack the gripper is for starters ,very aggressive setup this stuff ,when grip comes up to grip roll situ then lrp on half the front ,full rear
