6 months ago I was playing with stiff springs and the MTX3 rear end on the car. Took it back to basics (ie. back to factory settings) and my laptimes are faster, shows that the factory makes these things pretty good first time!

Oh yeah I have a G35 and a Nissan Altima to test as well, they look like they have potential.

I think the 300m is not legal for sanctioned racing right?
Geeez, AMG, did you find a discount body shop or something.
. . . and, didn't we all agree some time ago that by and large, all the popular bodies are very similar. Patella will chime in here and say "I told you so". Where is he, anyhow?

Seriously, though, the 300M always seems to perform well on a variety of cars. I'm a back seat driver, as you know, but it appears to have good speed and fore/aft balance with "sufficient" downforce. I've been trying to convince my driver of this, but no go. We also used a Proto F360 Modena for a while - it was actually pretty good but a bugger to re-fuel, and slightly illegal.
I must say our new Volvo S60 is a good one. I reckon it's better than the Stratus 1 - I'm sure to get some flack for that one.

Regarding your suspension testing, we seem to have travelled a similar path - I'm sure I said that before on another topic, somewhere. Anyway, we've tried many spring/oil combinations over recent months, and recently used hard rear and soft front as Sp racer described. We are now back to a near identical set-up to that used by the car's previous owner, Rob Lewis, and it's good. I guess his 20 years of experience tells us something.

. . so it looks like the Evo front end and the original R rear end might be a good combo.

Looks like Y14,000 (US$118)on the Kyosho site, but my Japanese is non-existant.

That's not bad. Is that radio plate carbon fiber of just fiberglass? Looks like the chassis is hardened too, is it right?

Yup... The servo, receiver and the switch is exposed! I do have bad experience with bad switch malfunction after a hard hit from side! Protection needed... Wait for Manticore...

Conversion kit looks nice manti. The option chassis is mising the clutchbell clearance cutout however!!!

The receiver on the RR is pretty exposed, but this looks very exposed. I am sure a hopup is in the works

Yeah I bought about 10 painted and trimmed bodies for $60, most with very little use. I was pretty happy with that deal.

Have not tried the volvo yet, but I have an unpainted one ready for testing too.

I suspect that the new front end of the EVO is to try and return some balance to the front/rear bite of the car. Most people are running softer front on the RR, so hopefully the EVO adds some additional steering and bite.
