Will the Spool take away alot of Steering?. . . . .(The Evo 5 has alot of Steering with the Front Ball Diff).

Thanks
evo5 has a front one way as standard, did you buy the car 2nd hand?

The spool did take away a little steering off compared to the one way. I can imagine the ball diff to be in between.

The spool increases on-power steering, but takes away a little off-power steering. However, you can adjust for this with setup changes.

If you want to give it a try without buying anything, a rough estimation would be if you tightened your diff down all the way. Some say that having a "slipper spool" where you replace the diff balls with slipper pegs (like what Traxxas or Kawada make) and tighten it down is better than a pure spool, because it will "give" a little in an impact. Myself, I just have the Tamiya spool from the TB-03 (and try not to crash ). Plus, at ~$20 for the part, it's not too expensive to try.

I find that a spool makes the car a LOT easier to drive for me than with the one-way. I don't have a front diff for comparison's sake, but in comparing my Evo V and TA05R (both with front spools) and a TC4 I used to have (with front diff), the spooled cars pulled harder through turns.

Just a nice gearing spreadsheet I got from here a while back. I if the EVO V MS runs the same gears as the EVO V, then this may come in handy.

NOTE: rename .zip to .xls to read the file. (I do not know how to make a winzip file in windows 7, and this forum does not allow me to upload a file with an xls extension, so i had to rename the file. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Here is a gearing calculator. The Evo V is a stored preset.

Thanks for the tip. (I think after I installed 7zip it moved some of the options around)... and i have to go into the 7zip menu (after right clicking) to make a zip file...
