Try this setup. It works well for the conditions that you specified. Also, Charlie, if you see this before tomorrow, here it is.

http://www.rctech.net/forum/attachme...&postid=371869

Please change the rear downtravel measurement from 5mm to 6mm. The rear was a bit too lively off power when it was at 5mm.

Also, the steering ball ends are on the inner-most hole on C1 and C2 for better ackerman.

One last thing, if the car has too much steering going in, mid, and exiting a turn then go with a yellow sway bar up front.

I haven't seen any different caster blocs.

The car will come with tamiya 0.4 pitch spurs (EVO3 had 3 x 96tooth and 3 x 90 tooth) it also comes with a 34 tooth 0.4 pitch pinion. You can stick with the Tamiya pinions all the way from 34 up to 53 (maybe a little higher) or you can get a 71 tooth 48 pitch spur and replace the 0.4 pitch ones with it, then just use standard 48 pitch pinions.

The surikarn kit should be similar to the EVO3 and it will come with a full compliment of sway bars ( 3 fronts SMH and 3 rears SMH). It should come with yellow springs as well. The springs are the normal Tamiya touring car springs which you can buy in packs of 4 pairs and will include (soft to hard) 2xRed,2xYellow, 2xBlue,2xWhite.

You should be able to get the numbers from Tamiya website for the pininons and the spring sets. They are just standard parts and not really specific to the the EVO3.

Hope this helps.
Tony

Are these kits actually shipping yet?

If not... that'll explain why you haven't got the car's manual and the list of usable option & spare parts on the back.

Great job to Rod Canare for his win in the Open class spec at the Reedy TC Race of Champions.

Thanks Neil, now that I've been awake for a couple of hours, I think I'll eat and go take a nap again

Also, the setup that I used is exactly the same one that I posted here a page or so ago.

Not much you can do about it. This occurs on my EVO2 too.

With the radio turned off, try turning the wheels to full-lock one side. Now look at the inside wheel.

The rod (linking the steering arm and the knuckle arm) is almost straight inline with the knuckle arm (the knuckle arm will not turn anymore, even if you twist the servo further. You will only pull apart the link if you try).

The knuckle arm is at its maximum throw, and at this point the servo cannot do anything to prevent that wiggling of the tire.. The only way you can prevent the inside tyre from wiggling is to reduce your steering throw so the steering arm can get some leverage on the knuckle arm, or to try fitting in some other knuckle arms.


Hope the above is clear. Difficult describing it in words...

Right again rough

I noticed this on My Evo II as well. I was a little concerned at first but I have not noticed it to be any real detrement to the performance. My car still kicks Ass
Not much you can do to stop it as far as I can see

i think i understand, and it makes seens, i think, lol
i took it out for a test and its running like a dream again, before it was oversteering hard and shaking heaps when turning left but not right. but with the whole new drivetrain its prefect again.
but still vaibraates on the stand at low speed turning hard.
thanx for the word up stevo!

TBe3's green driveshaft, there's 2 holes towards the rear end.

Spurgear sits in 1 of those holes...

what's the other one for??


(just wondering if I'm missing something...)

If you use a TB01 spur gear, the pin goes in the other hole.
i think they are ok gears, pretty soft, but it must save weight on the driveline, cause you don't use the spurgear holder.
