Doesn't look like the EVO 5 diff will directly fit into an EVO 4 diff housing.
Completely different in width and the ring gear is different as well.

A complete diff is not available. You have to buy the parts seperatly.

Take a look at your manual for the numbers.
I think rcmart.com is a good adress to search.

Evo V outdrives fit in the IV. You can use every part in the V diff, but you will need the IV gears. On the IV diff, the shims go on the longer outdrive, but when you use the V diff, you need to shim up the short one.

Just rebuilt my EVO and my problem area was and still is my rear hubs!
The bearing in the hub continue to fail creating drag!
Other than that the car is great & I have got it dialed in to carpet race....
If anyone is interested in my set-up just let me know.

I'm just finishing rebuilding mine for our silver-can "GT" class in our WCICS series. I'd love to get yours or others' ideas for setup on low to medium grip carpet using the new Jaco Blue rubber tires.

Thanks,
Mike

950 BBs are evil assume you've got a stock evo5

should consider changing to TRF416's knuckles & hubs which use 1050 BBs, just like the evo5ms

my TB03 also uses 1050s

Since i use the bearing spacers between, i have no problem at all with the bearings. Now they are very relayable.

Think this is a must have tuning part

Agree 100%
950 Bearing Spacer is a must run!
I used more bearings in the first 6 months without bearing spacer than I have in last 2 and 1/2 years with spacers and thats in two cars with TRF suspension.

I use the bearing spacers.
I think the 1 aluminum hubs may have something to do with my continual bearing failure.
I will post my lastest set-up today after I finish taking notes from this past weekend's club race.

Lets get a look at what you guys may have come up with......
I have found this set up have an aggressive but controllable turn-in but the mid-corner steering could be a little better, still working on exiting speed. The rear is getting better but use some improvement, but is more settled than in the past.

rctouringracer,

Thanks for posting the setup. If you don't mind, I had a couple of questions for you regarding a few items in your setup (keeping in mind that I'm pretty new to TC racing!)

I always thought (or was led to believe) that 3 degrees of rear toe was excessive and simply robbed straight-line speed. What's the rationale for this?

I'm assuming that raising the suspension mounts by 1.5mm raises the roll-centre. What impact does this have on the car?

Everything else seems pretty similar to the base kit setup. I only have the front one-way (or diff) and I'm going to be running a silver-can motor on low-ish grip carpet. Is there anything else I should keep in mind for this?

Sorry for all the questions and thanks in advance for any help anyone can provide me with

Cheers,
Mike

The 3 of toe-in in the rear is right at the limit of the amount of toe you would ever want to put into that setting.
I admit it seems a little excessive but so far the set-up is working for me. I had it 2 before and the rear was unsettled going down the straightaway at my track. The new setting has worked so far.
The roll center change has made the vehicle be able to carry more speed around the corners, the EVO seems more planted through the infield.
Remember I am running a 13.5 BL motor, if your running a less powerful motor you may not need to set your toe as aggressively as I did. The outside track I was going to did not have a straightaway as long the carpet track I am presently running at & I didn't need 3 of toe.
