The 2005 was a good car but I guess it depends on parts availablilty if I would get this model.

If it were me, I would get the new M3 EVO. It's just a bit better refined then the M3. I have run all these cars & think the new M3 EVO is awesome!

Cheap Engine? Perhaps the RB C9, the new model Picco or the JP basic if they are still available. Even the standard Novarossi 35 Plus 21 is a good choice. Or wait till the new OS .21 onroad that will come out soon.

You can also get the M3 for a good price and then if you want to you can upgrade it to the evo later on. i got my M3 evo upgrade kit for about 240.00. Good Luck

Get rid of the engine most importantly, most kyosho engines break down fast and don't last long.

Try putting in a picco, or if you really wanna get power try seeing if you can fit hpi's big block 4.6

One of my cars is the 2005 Evolva with the 2007 updates. I know of three sponsored Kyosho drivers that gave up on the M3 as they could not get it dialed in for their tastes. Each one of them has driven my 2005, and all said they thought that the 2005 is a better car< their opinion of course, as I know there are true Kyosho drivers that only go with the latest car>. I compare the 2005 with the 2007 updates to the new MRX4X<I have two> and also the Serpent 966< I have one> I still think the 2005 car is a great car

the 05 is definately a great handler, awesome car what are you talking about asweeba,a kyosho engine? and why would you put a big block like that in it, its on road 1/8 scale not an off road monster truck and if you were talking about the nova engine breaking down, i had nothing but great races with them and did not break down on me. try a Picco IDM Evo 3, good one
