Ill continue to run my evo for another year at least. It's still got a heap of pace. even though its fat lol


hey ernestf I noticed that you also took out the middle plastic bit that holds the upper deck in place. What class do you run and what effect have you found on that modification?? Also on your car the capacitor sits on the upper deck does that effect the handling ie centre of gravity being too high? Last thing are those steering knuckles standard?

Good looking car hope that setup works for you!!

Hi, I mainly run 23T stock motors on this chassis and found that with the SE version plate (it should be 3mm thick), the chassis is hard enough so I decide to take out the middle plate. It give me a bit more "forgiving" - more easy to drive.
I would love to fit the capacitor on the lower deck but with the TC2 esc, I coundn't find a nice way to fit it. Therefore I have to mount it on the upper deck - just a few grams added to the higer CG position, not a big deal I guess.
The suspensions are common with TB Evo4 and 415MS. This suspension allow longer camber link F and R and more option to adjust the roll center.

Thats what I like about the electronics on one side and batteries on the other, you could always have a clean layout. The body is almost all beaten up now but on my next mazda im going to have the same scheme.

Default Aluminium knuckles for TB Evo 3

Howzit

This is my first post on this forum

I have an Evo 3, i lost both bottom screws to the knuckles. I have decided to get some aluminium ones. But, I havent found evo 3 knuckles, only evo 4, or evo 1 and 2. Does anyone know where which of the above will fit?

Also, on the subject of gearing, I will be running my evo in the stock silver can class, what gearing would you guys suggest? another gear in our club is using the 72 tooth spur with 46 tooth pinion, 64 pitch.

Can anyone please help

thanks


Thanks
