Hi, just trying to find out what is the effect of using a shorter upper arm setup for front and rear??

Can anyone guide me on this?

Thanks

All the Evo parts are readily available through Kyosho America. We had all the Evo parts sent to the Nationals and nothing was on back-order last week. Have your LHS order for you. Enjoy your new Evo!

I did notice that the EVO has better corner speed. Right away I noticed faster lap times. This year was my first Nats with the car and I put it in the Semi.

Lots of thanks to Aaron Buran for the set up tips at the GLC.

Yeah, I had the pully sitting to low in the back the first time I put the conversion on. The instructions are there for a reason! LOL!

The shorter arms give more camber gain. Also changes the roll center.

yes, i also feel i can be a bit more agressive in and out of corners wich is definately improving my lap times. i have a question, does anyone know if the front belt tensioner from empire fit on the M3? because the only one i could find says its for the 05 wc.

Yes Empire Racing does make a front belt tensioner for the M3. Go to the bottom of the page and click on Evolva M3.

I usually run the "B" block. The A block will reduce roll and work on tracks with really high bite. If you are running on a low bite track you might want to try the "C" block, that will give you the most roll.

Can somebody post a good base set up for the M3? I ve been looking at Collari winning set up during the worlds but he's got lots of mixed parts like Serpent knuckles and tanks. I wonder why is that?

Also what are the function of scrub shims on the axles, inside or outside? I have lots to learn about setting up an 1/8th car.

BTW I ll be using Zytec and P909 body, which body position will be good for these bodies and from where do you measure it?

Thanks a lot.
