Default Updated Evolva M3

Accorging to my sources in Japan, an updated Evolva M3 will be shown at the Shizuoka Hobby Show.

It will be called an Evolva M3 Evolution & be available in June or July. A conversion kit will also be available.

Changes will be:
Rear Bulkhead
Rear Suspension
Front Bulkhead
Chassis
2nd gear & Pulley (don't know which one)
Plus some other bits & pieces

You heard it here first...

Hey Rich or anybody that knows. When using the empire rear sway bar where do you set the bottom link that connects the bar to the lower arm? I am currently using the stock bar spaced at 3mm. Do I just leave the spacing at 3mm when I switch to the empire unit or should I set it at something else and use the different bars to get the feel I want. Hope I didn't confuse you too much.

Thanks
Troy

Hey guys - a bit off topic and need to know.

Anyone know which body shell Lamberto Collari used to win the 2007 Argentina iFMAR Worlds?

I'm trying to get the same body/paint scheme done.

Much appreciated to whoever can tell me

Not too much to say. The car just keeps winning races. Solid, fast and Kyosho quality - that covers it

The body was a Central Lola T530, sold by Serpent. The body was the popular choice back then but not used these days by the top drivers.

It was painted by Bitty Design in Italy: Click here

oh yeah, I found out from Bittydesigns not too long ago.
Central WAS the shell to get, but now (so I've heard) is the Zytec shell (fastest?).

I went with the Zytec shell with L. Collari paint scheme.

I appreciate all the info...great stuff!
