M3 changes the rear axle to a FM617 so I suspect if Empire Racing does make any heat treated axles they will be FM617's. Rear CVD do reduce the issue by not letting the dog bones seek the lowest area on the axle.

I have a question. I just finished with my 07 Evolva. I also run a RRR. I run the RRR with the optional middle pulley to run a 2mm split on the front tires. On the Evolva it only has the 26t middle pulley, right? I did not see an option. Do I run a split, and if so what is the split. I herd its 7mm. Is that correct? I am going to cut some of my first tires this weekend and I don't want to mess them up. Also, what shores are most popular. Most people I know are running 35 front and rear I think. Thanks for the help. Also. I have the front belt tensioner from Empire Racing, so should I run the front belt loose (tabs twords the front of the car) or tight, the way I do the RRR?
Thanks for the help!

There are options included in kits for all of the front pulleys, my advice is stick with the 26th, the 16th and the 24th and play with overdrive by varying your split from 7mm to 6mm (more overdrive), when using the Empire front tensioner leave the bulkhead settings a tiny bit on the loose side and use the slack in conjuction with the tensioner to gain an extra tooths worth of engagement on the 16th pulley.

Thanks. That was perfect. (And quick) I thought the front belt seemed a little tight. I appreciate all the help.

Default Clutch Info Pls

Hi Guys

I am not sure if someone asked this already - but I need to know if the Serpent clutch shoes will work on the 3D clutch for the Evolva? Also, is there any other parts that can easily be interchanged between Serpent and Evolva?

Thanks
Acid

HAs anyone experienced the servo saver brushing the underside of the front belt (when turning left). Other cars i've seen have a lot more clearance than mine. I've disassembled everything and can't figure out why the arm that the tie rods connect to is so much higher!!!

Thanks for any insight.

Actually the M3 servo saver output is lower than the old car, by any chance your not trying to use one of the old Shimo units are you??

No, it's all from the 05 kit parts. I'm running the Empire belt tensioner, but it doesn't look like that has anything to do with it.

I have had this problem with both the standard plastic & option shimo version servo saver. I had to file them down but they still lightly touched the belt but I didn't seem to effect the belts life.

You running the standard tie rods & ball cups? Did you try it without the empire belt tensioner?

I haven't tried it without the empire tensioner yet. I'm using lunsford ti- tie rods and captured ball ends. From what I see those aren't the problem though.

Your suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Default Clutch set up

Can someone post a good clutch set up pls...like Spring? Shoes? Preload? Endplay? I m having trouble with mine. It seems my car just doesnt have the low end side. I m using Nova engine with it and a friend of mine who uses the same eng in a Serpent has more than enough low end. At the moment i m using Grey clutch shoes and it worn out just after a whole main. Both the clutch bearings gone too after the race. This problem frustrated me a lot as I have to replace everything after a race.
