What I notice the Tamiya spur are very soft & have short life span. You can bend it very easily. As for Yokomo spur it's much harder with better quality plastic.

Just to enquire, if anyone has used Yokomo spur & pinion? Is it much more durable?

You weren't kidding about the gearing. I ended up adding shims under the upper brace. 2mm shims at the 4 screws gave me the room I need to gear properly without breaking out the dremel.

I did dremel the motor mount so I could slide the motor in with screws on it. Wish the piece came like that. I know the Hara Pro4 had a similar mod made to it. Makes it a lot easier to switch motors.

How do you plan to design it? Just a more narrow opening for the spur then the upper brace has? Allowing the section that blocks the pinion to be moved further inward?

I'm not familar with the original Evo V but I dont see how the "quick change" makes spur changes any easier. I can't get the assembly out without taking the top deck off and removing the center brace anyway.

oh TRUST ME... the MS is a quicker change. the original EvoV.. you had to take the upper deck off and the rear bulkhead as well as the entire rear assembly apart just to get to the spur gear holder.

the biggest thing on the MS is the shaft and spur gear holder.. they just slide into each other. that makes its easier.

as for the top deck.. it'll be one piece.. no "wings" since i only race asphalt... and the opening for the spur gear will be smaller (since this will be primarily for 13.5/17.5 applications) and thinner on the sides to allow for 60+ sized pinions to fit.

How much you looking to sell them for? I may be interested. Not sure yet. Who are you having do it? I know Penguin RC does stuff for some Tamiya cars.

Do they even sell the pieces necessary to connect the wings to the bottom chassis?

I see what you mean now on the quick change. I remember now from the Pro4 the pain in doing it. I guess I just figured, for some reason, it was just the part with the spur that came out until I actually tried to do it.

Jcarr, I see you eyeing the thread

Penguin RC is gonna do it. i have a few contacts that can help me with it.

i think it'll help free the car up even more. if we can get 2-3 evoV MS (if there's even that many out there) owners who would want one.. i can explore the idea even more.

Got to keep an eye on the competition. Also want to keep up with what you are doing to my future car.

I figured as much on both counts!

Chris, We race with a Penguin RC driver at our track with good contacts with them as well. We have one other Evo V MS at our track (and after I start beating everyone Im sure there will be more ). I will ask around.

Hey Evo 5 Guys

Electric TC Racing here in N.Y.C.(U.S.A.) is somewhat Gone; so I don`t have many people to run/race with. But I was having a bit of Over-Steer(on Asphalt - 70 degrees outside) until I installed Red(Soft) Springs in the Rear and Blue(Hard) Springs in the Front.
-The Yellow(Medium) Springs on all corners didn`t work well. . . . .Anyone else has/had that problem?
Now my Evo 5 runs very well.


I haven`t used bigger Bearings around my Evo 5`s Axles yet; and I haven`t had a Bearing problem.....yet. . . . .But I`m running a Brushed 19-Turn Motor; that could make a difference.

Take Care

Default Evo5 Steering Post

Wanted to share with you my steering mod. on my car.
I have orderd the Steering pots, spacers and the steering bridge, of the Evo5MS.

The spacers i have to sand 1mm because the MS steering arms are 1mm thinner then the old one of the Evo5.

Look at the pics.
