This allows you to remove the spur gear assembly without effecting or removing the rear input shaft.
This doesn't explain why the front one way is different...

EVO 5 & EVO 5 MS share same one-way unit: Tamiya #3455960.

Since the the bulkheads and the gears are the same in both cars also the one-way unit of TB03 should fit in MS if Tamiya has announced compatibility with standard EVO 5...

I've been able to locate a EVO IV front spool in Germany, but the model shop refuses to ship to US Guess the only hope now is that Tamiya re-releases it for the EVO V MS.

The Point I was making that is being a "shaft drive" and not changing the ESC profile the brakes are much stonger than my belt cars....the tires, shock dampen, shock mount, droop, slight camber and drivetrain has something to do with brakes not just the ESC......if you tighten the tension on a belt kit the brake will be alittle strong but you risk eff% and your belt may "break" under pressure. Hint Hint.

Also,scrub off speed, track times or lap times is what determine the the loss of performance. Which in this case the car is 3tenth faster around the track.
....................................that enough to make everyone go re-wrench and bring out new tires..

The torso flex helps the car stick hard. And the fact that I have a mean Set up on the car......next time I will say "Dailed"......800collect..Yes I will accept charges it was good eveywhere on the track.



About the spool if you can find an evo4 spool get it, it will work in the EVO5 or 5MS.

I will get more pictures track side...

Hey m3ndo5a, is it possible to change the spur only with removing the rear alu brace, or must you also remove the top deck?

I plan to install the new rear drivetrainparts (little rear bevelgear shaft, spurgear holder, rear center cup, and the new motormount with the little plate wich is holding the bearing) but i want still use the old upper deck.

Think this should work, because the holes in the lower deck for the motor mount are located in the same area.

Greetings Blueman

Blueman

I am not sure you can use the Top deck of the EVO5 with 5MS....
More than likely you will have to get a 5MS top deck because of the new Motor mount.

Changing the spur gear is so easy....it the best thing every for a shaft car.


I will post my set up later.

it is built right. per the build up on Tamiya's site.
I will email pics to anyone interested.

Thanks

Can anyone suggest a suitable spur/pinion combination for running in a silver can class?

We run about 7.5 ratio for a shorter tighter track, something like 96/30 or 90/28.

Hey Evo 5 Guys;

I finally got the chance to Race My Evo 5 in a Real Race at the Floyd Bennett Track(against good drivers with pro kits)-(Friday Morning July 25th) --All using 19-Turn Motors. The(My) Evo 5 has good Steering, it Runs Straight(with Front and Rear Ball Diffs).....but it needs a SPOOL(It needs one bad.). I`ve never realized it before. It also has some Oversteer on the loose turns.
-----I`ve ran My Pro 4 with the Spool installed (that same day same track) and it out drives My Evo 5.....I was faster with the Pro 4 by 3 seconds.

To think about it:
-My Evo 5 cost me over $1,275(fully Hopped-Up including electronics).
-I don`t want to spend that amount on another kit that doesn`t have the part(s) that keep it from running it`s best.
-If the Evo 5 MS doesn`t have a Spool.....I`m NOT getting it.

Take Care

I wish they would include a spool in the high end kits too, I gave up looking after finding some in Germany, but they will not ship to the U.S. I'm going to try these: http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXJK92&P=ML
They are 3mm so they will fit where the diff balls go. Hopefully cranking down on the diff screw will keep it from slipping in all but the most stressful situations. The one losi has for the Jrxs is basically a piece of plastic in the ball diff holes, against the diff rings. It allows it to slip if the front end binds up in an accident. Hopefully these pegs will accomplish the same thing.

It`s up to you guys to put whatever you want in/into/on your kits; but I`m not goint to install anything that isn`t totally made for the kit.

I ran(raced) My Evo 5 that day with most of the Stock Set-Up on a somewhat opened-out track and it was loose in mid-turns.
-I know some Droop or Shock Placement or a Spring Change would fix the problem; but a Spool will cover those fixes.

I`ll list My Set-Up when I find My Set-Up Sheet Book.....Ha Ha!

Take Care
