Just ordered an Evo II, can't wait! Can anyone tell me if the arms, or any other parts for that matter are shared with the TA04?

Default Roll Centre/Camber Link Location

Greetings,
My friend recently acquired a TB-EVO, and wondering if it was possible to change the camber link locations of the front and rear bulk heads? Thanks for any hints.

Regards,
Alvin

sportracer,

Try to tighten the diff all the way then loosen it about 1/4 turn to 1/2 turn. It gives just about the right feeling when you do that.

However, it might feel that it's locking the rear wheel at first when you let go the throttle, allow it to break in for a little. However if it doesn't feel right, and the wheel is still locking up... that means it's too tight.

It takes a while to get it right, however, when it's right, you don't even need to rebuilt the diff for a long while...

sportracer, Also its very, very important to read the manual concearning the diff assembly! There is a little black screw that goes in THE OPPOSITE SIDE of the diff adjusting screw. The little screw actually locks the diff screw in place after its been set 1/2-1/4 turns out. I actually skiped that step as well, until I noticed the screw left over after the car was assembled. This very well might be why your diff is getting loose.

Default Shock Towers, QUESTION????

Hello!!!! TBevo lovers!!

I have a question???

Has anyone tried drilling another hole in the shock towers to make the angle of the dampers more inclined????

I think this will help the TBevo corner better???

Thanks!!!!

Lem

aaaaa About the torque thing, I think it is the motor that is causing the veering to the right when you accelarate hard. You see, the motor is rotating about 3 time more that the aluminu shaft and if you mulitple the inertial of the armature , it comes up to a BIG number, comparing it to the main Alu shaft.

Imagine holding the motor with that pinion facing you on you palm. If you gun down the throttle, the pinion rotates CCW. But the counter force is forcing your hand to torque to the CW direction !!! Does that explain the weering to the right symptom??

Actually the main center shaft is a counter shaft, more like a balancer to the motor rotor - one rotates CCW , the other CW, thus cancelling torque effect. If you make the main shaft too light, like using carbon fiber, then .... problems ....... get the picture? Am I wrong ??

Lem...I have no problems with the evo's steering, actually, the car has Tons of it! It isn't always set up for i found approaching a turn differently also affects the handling of the car....try different angles..coming in a turn wide then come in tight....slow down a lot before a turn....or even turn about a meter before a turn and see how the car reacts. I have found changing the driver's bad habits(meaning mine) actually saved me time and stress from trying to figure out why the car does what it does. The Evo is a great car..wish more people had it here in Cali.

Thanks!!! Actually i did not pursue the idea anymore, I saw a site "explosion Racing" in Japanand just copied their set-up!

That idea entered my mind when I saw the website of Kai Racing!!! THe TBevo is awesome!!! with the shock angle almost at 40degrees!!!

Thanks Again

Lem
