Default IDM Motors

Well today i went down to run in a IDM evo 2. after 4 tanks at the track , i slowly leaned it to produce some power. well it still has a bit to go, but with temps at around 170F my 2 speed just kicks in instantly. the screws need to be shortened on the 2 speed as we all know for the G4S, but i didnt have the tools on hand. so after 5 tanks i stopped the procedure.
then after putting back in the other motor, the 2 speed was now working as it should. all i can say is WOW. this IDM modified EVO 2 is so fast at rich settings still, it kind of blew me away
i hope i can get my EVO 3 shortly and see the improvements over the 2.
very happy with the power so far, and a breeze to start every time, and the run in process is an ease.
Tony, you will be very Happy also i do believe with the Evo 3's arrival shortly.

Hey Paul.

Good to hear about your IDM !
Oh Yeah !! On the EVO 3............can't wait !!
Sounds as though it could be really good. I know Sam's buzzing about it.

I wanted to head off to St. Louis this weekend and finally finnish breaking in the Nova and run some set-ups and get some long awaited practice in, but the weather took a turn for the worst and the whole weekend down there, Saturday T&T and Sunday Off-road "Race-for-Cash" was cancelled.
It's gone from 70's and 80's weather here last week(20-25C plus), back down to 5 and 10 degrees!!(F)
St. Louis is around 5 hours south of us here too!!

Never mind......must be patient I guess.
Hey Paul.
What does your car weigh in at ?

Menace

with the weight, i think it was about 1790grams with out a transponder with a body on and small wheels. no fuel though. its all packed away at the moment, as i am having the place painted this weekend. so as soon as things are back to normal i will weigh it for you.
on the upgrades for the car, i found i was lacking steering after the rear hubs and new front end. i dropped a spring at the front and it helped a bit. so the other night i shortened the wheel base, and i have to say now i have too much steering but i am able to run 42 fronts and still have abundance of steering from testing today. very happy indeed with the car.

I did that to my last G4. (Shortening the front end to 196mm)
It does work really well doesn't it?
I haven't done it yet to the new car though.

On weight I'm a little heavy. I've been trying to get my car as stiff as possible for a very high bite track I go to in early May.
But I've found it's at the expense of weight.
I'm at 1840g with body, new tires and no fuel. Transponder on.
I think I may have to re-think my idea...........

I got 4mm chassis, ED system, Speedshot front end, aluminum servo mounts, and carbon/alu' side braces. All the stiff stuff..............and heavy stuff too !

Will have to have a serious look into this......lol

On the steering Paul. Try cutting a little back on the rear toe. Although, if you have already cut down the front track, I guess you have all the steering you nead !

im still running the 3mm chassis, but with speed shot front end and new rear hubs with ED. std servo mounts and side plates.
with the shortening, i shortened wheel base not track width. so i shaved the front of the rear arms by 3mm, to get the rear wheels closer to the fronts. veery nimble indeed now.
