Hello guys,
im new here, and i hope im in the right section....
Well, i have the new Kyosho Evolva M3, and I i was hoping if you can tell me the right way to build the shock absorbers to work (oil filling etc). is there any "rule of thumb"?
What about the shock springs? i was searching for a rate chart regarding the kyosho springs but no luck; any one knows about the rate and color of the springs?
Thanks, guys

Actually there is an M3 thread wandering around here somewhere but your questions are applicable to both. The way I build my shocks is put my finger over the small end and fill 1/3 to 1/2 way, insert piston and rod assembly all the way to bottom , use vacuum chamber (or time) to get out bubbles, move piston up about 1/3 , drop in bladder and use a tool to gently seat, add the plastic shock end and put the cap on and screw down snugly - fingers only no pliers.
Springs - the whites in the kit are in the middle, silver softer, black harder.

I should get new Empire Racing M3 items early next week. I'll try to get pictures and get them posted on site as soon as I can.

Funny you should ask. We have the M3 midshaft in stock and it is made from 7075 and weighs about 3 grams. Currently making some titanium 2speed shafts that weigh about 10 grams and should be available later next week.

I've put the evolva 2005 rear bulkhead on my delta xp4. I'm having problems with the belt riding off the gear. So My question is what tension setting (per the manual) should you start with on belt tension? I understand there's both r and l bearing tensioners, and 4 different slots. I put the R on the R bulk and the L on the L bulk and the second from the front slot.

Tom - depending on the belt and pulley wear sometime you even have to use the LH cam in the RH bulkhead and visa-versa, never have had any issues with belts riding off, do you have the flanges opposing each other?? - typically the belt tends to nestle against the spool pulley flange, left side of car.

I studied some drawings just recently and I noticed that i put the rear pully on backwards (was working late last night). When setting the tension, what typically do you set it at when installing a fresh belt?

Tom - there is no typical in my world - belts have varied from batch to batch and from std to SP, just start with the rh cam in the rh bulkhead and one of the middle two positions and make judgement calls from there.

From what I hear the suspension geometry is the same between the M3 and evolva 05 , its just that you couldn't interchange parts between them.
i almsot forgot about the 07, isn't that basically the 05WC editition?

Heck, my Delta XP4 is the same as a 03 spec evolva with 05 bulkheads and I'm still driving it.

Belts changing from batch to batch is right! My experience of the last 4 to 5 weeks proved that, and also it sort of pointed out I should refer to the assembly instructions a little more often than I usually do.LOL!
