i agree with you bro..os engines are the easiest to tune of them all. as you go italian made engines, they are a lot needles to tingker with. if you loose your count, then you are in trouble. my advise, try to learn to tune engines starting with os engines. good luck

Default Spring retainers

Hey guys, I was building some new shocks (courtesy of TomG) for the rear of my Evo. I went back to the Evo kit manual and it said to use the black spring retainers for the rear, but the instructions for the shocks say to use the blue (shorties).

Does it matter? I'm going to set the proper ride height and throw it on the tweak scale anyways.

Kid, I built them with the blacks and had no problems with adjustments. You can use the blue, but then you will have to use the different lenghted ball cups to compensate.

Now then, since I've actually read the post accurately, you may be better served using the Evo manual instructions since the last time I did this was for the RR kit, and not the Evo!

Default Since now RRR is available....

How long do you think R/RR parts would be available for us?
I got mine this spring, so I don't want to keep buying new cars... Any one knows how much parts are shared between RR and RRR?


I already put mine in storage area for winter.... Yeah, it's a Michigan thing. A few weeks ago, it was very cool and then now it's Indian summer.

3R is a totally new design car, there is nothing shared between RR and 3R.

Thanks again, Tom! I did go with the Evo manual.

Default Front belt rubbing

My 3R front belt is rubbing the steering belcrank causing the belt to worn out at the edges. Has any of you got this problem too? i m using the front diff BTW, would this be the cause?

dameetz... which bellcrank are you using? I just pulled my front end out and didnt have any rubbing problems. I think the kit had 3 different bellcranks. Is it only rubbing when the steering is at full throw? or all the time?

I m using no 11 ( stock set up). Its rubbing at the meeting line between the upper and lower belcrank. Its rubbing even when the steering is in neutral. Its not that severe but still I can see the belt still touch the bellcrank. I m using the front diff which I put bearing spacer at both side to give away the lateral play that I mention on earlier post . I think I put too much spacer on the left side which moves the front pulley a bit to the right causing the belt to touch the belcrank. I will adjust the spacer to the right today and see how it goes.
