Is this more suited to open flowing tracks? I'm running on a very small tight indoor carpet track.

hmm thats an option but i think im going to wait untill its a bit more available/more people have had it and tryed it local to me so setups will be easier to get hold of. Im quite happy with the suspension at the moment to be honest but i guess it can always be improved.

so what made the evo4 so quick do you guys think?

I cannot say. I am going to try it out myself. However, I can only guess the advantage (if any) of the EVO4 would be the new suspension.

i still think the 415 will be a better car and the evo 4 will have problems like the evo 3 .

Post EVO 4 pics

(Sorry about the quality, but the pics were taken with my phone)

I was at Tamiya America today and had a chance to check out David Juns EVO4.

BTW the samples of B3's came in also....might have some test data shortly.

Take care,

John

last shot

DJ was running a prototype center brace set, but the car seemed very light and also stiff torsionally.

Center braces were alloy, think they were designed for the EVO3 he once raced...and yes your square center braces look like they should work

Hi dave, perhaps you can clarify for me--is the bottom deck 2.5mm or 3mm thick? Thanks, Jeff
