Kyosho have introduced the updated version of their Evolva M3 1/8th scale on road car, the M3 Evo. Featuring a whole host of small changes to improve upon their World Championship winning Evolva platform, the designers addressed some of the issues with the previous car to help increase durability, add more adjustability and improve performance. With a focus on the drive train, the car sports a new 2 speed transmission, gears & shaft as well as a new centre and rear bulkheads and new rear belt. The M3 Evo also has a new chassis plate for increased flex, new more rigid lower rear suspension arms and a new rear sway bar system and lots more little changes. Expect it to hit the market mid July in time for the World Championships.
