The bulkhead molds for the front and rear don't appear to have changed, although for some reason my side belt is tighter with the stand gear ratio, so the layshaft may be closer to the rear axle, when I checked the parts prior to assembly the mold appeared to be the same. The rear a-arm has additional webbing in it for additional rigidity, the upper rear a-arm has been redesign for the new sway bar design. All of the plastic is now pulled out of a stiffer material, that looks and smells like the plastic that the old car was made out of, much high carbon content.

Since the car offers a new drive ratio (which you don't necessarily have to run, the old one will still work), the new 2 speed offers a wider range of gear choices to offset the higher rollout built into the car. The 2 speed has been redesigned with new gears, a new cam, new layshaft with a cross-pin, instead of a set screw, in an attempt to make it better and smooth. I have never had an issue with the transimission, so I decided to run all my old stuff (pulleys and gears) instead of buying all the new stuff at this time.

I also purchased 2 BLS 451 servos for my M3, was that a good choice for throttle and steering?

The EVO definately is a step forward.
Especially in Europe we always had problems to let the car enter corners hard enough without making the rear end too lose.
Another problem was that cornering speeds had been to slow...

With the EVO entering corners is better (there's still room for improvements).
Much better are the speeds mid-corner to the exit...

Please look twice when installing the new rear-belt-tension-adjustment-parts.
There are some named 1&2 and others named L&R. Refer to the manual as installing the wrong one will make the belt sitting lower then the chassis. It's close enough with the correct ones. Use the hardest tension setting right from the start...all others are too lose...

The new gearbox workes well...and consistent with 2,3,4,... spur gears as the 2-speed bell always stayes the same...NICE :-)

Overall I like the car much better now...although it still not handles like the 2007...which was slower but so sweet :-)


Regards...MARTIN

Nice. If more people can share their experiences with the new EVO kit, it would really be helpful! Always like to hear more positive things about this car! =)

Default Kyosho m3 evo

Thanks for the tips Martin, The cornering and exit speeds are definatly improved and the gear box is sweet, I am definatly happy with the upgrade as it did improve on an already sweet machine. If any one has any comments on the evo let us know Thanks, and do look out for the 1&2 for the L&R wich Martin was right about or your belt will be sitting below your chassis

My LHS just got the Evo conversion kit. I think I m going to get it. But they haven't got the spares for that like the new 2 speed gears, rear belt and pulleys. Does anyone know if mugen 2 speeds gear will fit there? As well as the rear belt and pulleys? I hate to wait for spares when I made the conversion, Mugen 2 speeds gears are readily available though.
