Default Well.

I think they are all about the same.All are capable{don't know about the hpi as its not out,looks hopeful}tc3 is still ballistic and the yoke is pretty good.It all comes down to the driver in reality.Evo3s is awsome looking though I actually race an XRAY T1r and have whooped up on shaft cars and visa versa.But the evo3 surikarn is gonna be my new ride from now on.

have a question regaring the droop screws. the front arms ask for 2.5mm while the rear 3mm.

if i were to place the car on set up blocks and measure the droop. is that the measurements i should look for?

anyone know the stock setup is?

i'm a noobie when it comes to stuff like this. i appologize if it gets repetitive.

Thanks!

Good question. I've never called Tamiya before hehe. I live about 10-15 minutes away from them so I usually just swing by when I need stuff. They typically answer their phones...I don't see why they wouldn't. Their hours are from 8AM-4PM Monday thru Friday and they are closed at lunch time from Noon-1PM. It would be best to contact them when they're not eating hehe.

where do put the shims for the axles. on the outside where the wheel hub sits or on the inside where axles run through the steering knuckes?

Thanks!

I prefer the inside to make track witdh narrower, even by only 0.3-4...

Are you the real Surikarn? If you are, this is way too cool! If not, I think you should use another name out of respect to the Surkarn Man.
Anyway, whoever you are I'm Izzy, avid Tamiya Fan, welcome to the Famous RC tech.
Tell us all about your experience with EVO 3.
