The car was awesome, it has alot more steering than the old car, but was still very stable.

I will post my setup in the next couple days.

There were a few minor issues, that came up, but nothing major.

I ended up CA'ing the inserts in the rear uprights, after a couple slap shots on the boards my inserts became a little loose in the uprights.

I also put the RRR APP brake pads on the car, this improved the braking alot. The stock pads, didn't work nearly as good as the APP stuff.

I also recommend partially tapping your screws, I didn't when I build the car. There are 2 reasons for this, one your wrist and arms will be dead after assembly , and I think it tweaked the rear bulkhead a little bit on the rear right side, which created a little binding on the cyclindrical brake actuator. Once I put a new tapped bulkhead on my car and the APP brake pad, the braking was awesome.

I also put the 3D clutch in my car, I wasn't happy with the 4D. I ran out of time to make it work. The 4D seemed heavy. With more testing and time, I'm sure we will find a combination that we like.

The car has alot more corner speed and adjustability. The durability was great too. I tried everything I could do to make the car turn as much as I could, and it responded appropriately. It was a little loose in the main under braking under the sunshine. In retrospect I proably ran a little too much rear bar.

Everyone that ran the new car was happy with it, no horror stories at all. There was definately a buzz about the car in the pits, they all looked. I think in the end we had 4 in Main, including a bump driver. Not bad for it's first US outing.

The only non-standard part I ran on the car was a brass battery tray (for weight) from YB Slow.

Hey Aaron,

Great job man, It looks like you had a a good week. Sounds like the M3 is already better than the 07 car. Thanks for the tips, we will be talking in the next couple of days.

I was Aarons pitman the entire week. Let me tell you, he was focused from the first tank in practice until he crossed the finishline in the Main.
He did an excellent job with the new M3. Chassis looked superb!
Thank you for putting RB engines on the podium!

hey guys, I was just wondering if the Alloy Middle shaft mount for the evolva 05 would fit the M3? or are they different sizes.

Thanks

Hey Ryan:
I know this won't ease the pain but don't feel so bad...you are not the first to snap the brake screws in the rear bulk head. The M3 was specifically designed with stronger plastics as per the market demand for a more durable product. Mission accomplished by KYOSHO. I took a couple of hard hits when I got a glitching at the Winternats and nothing broke. Get yourself one FM 607 rear bulk head set and from now on ...all screws (especially new ones) need one to two drops of oil on the tip before attempting. DO NOT REAM the holes. Slowly and with some TLC go for it. It is a great car. Your going to love it.....enjoy the build!
paulie.
PS....Any questions you can pm me anytime.
