Here is a picture of the MS using the non-MS or standard propeller joint B and the TB03 spur gear adaptor.

Is it possible for you to measure the prop shaft b for me? I'm planning to use the TB03 rear prop shaft. I could not find the prop shaft b anywhere. They looks identitcal other than the groove. I would like to know specifically the lengths, distance of the holes

TenzoR, i'm in the same boat as you.

Having studied the manuals (sad, but had to be done!) i think that the hole for the spur gear holders of the TB03 shaft is further away from the 'thicker' part of the layshaft than the EVO5 one (by thicker part i mean where the 1060 bearing sits.

I have attached a screen shot of each part from the manual that should highlight it better.

The difference in the hole is due to the EVO5 and TB03 using different spur gear holders. Travis S has used a TB03 spur gear holder on the EVO5 layshaft (with some shimming) so maybe you can retrofit the EVO5 with the complete TB03 system - i hope so as they are much easier to come by.

The TB03 latshaft also has a flat at the end where the drive cup attaches, the EVO5 doesn't - i don't see this being an issue though.

I think we'll be ok - it will just require time on the shimming. Let us know how you get on mate.

HTH,
Chris

Prior to buying OVA's EVO 5 MS I starting to buy parts to build one. I happened to have the TBO3 rear prop shaft, TB03 Spur gear holder, and Non-MS motor mount. So I took my car apart to test some stuff out and to show some pictures of the differences.

The good news is that it did fit! See pictures below. (I didn't shim them perfect but close enough for testing.) The only thing that is off is that it does move the spur gear closer to the motor mount so the hole cut out in the bottom of the EXO chassis is not lined up anymore. This really isn't an issue because the biggest spur gear that will fit is a 84 tooth (64p.) There is still clearance under the spur gear as seen in picture 2.

I have the MS (picture 3) and Standard motor mounts (picture 2) shown.

I just started to put back back my EVO together and was going to use the TB03 rear prop from the post above and found one issue with it I should pass along... The spur because it is moved forward will rub on the top deck unless you make the hole bigger towards the motor mount where it says 84t in the photo. I do know they make some really thin 64p spur gears. (I don't remember what company sells them and wish I did...) Using one of them may solve this issue without much if any mods to the top deck.

If you were to do anything you could use a drill press and put a hole for the spur gear closer like the standard EVO 5 prop shaft. This would move the spur gear into the correct place. I think the standard EVO 5 spur gear holder doesn't have the about 5mm spacer attached to it. This might make for better mounting using the TB03 prop shaft, but I don't know for sure. I ordered one just to see the difference, but like you it's hasn't came yet.

I think it's a kimbrough, but it came with the car so I am not 100% sure. It just fits and depending if it is forward or back some might cause an issue. It just clears the top deck for me. Also I assume you are trying a 64p spur and not 48p.

Just got all of the electronics mounted with very little room to spare. I will be trying it first as my USVTA and some USGT. (Have the USGT motor in now.)

I can't wait to test this bad boy out on a track.

Also read some posts on here where people SAY they are able to spin the wheels for like 30 seconds. I would love to see a video of this because I don't see how! I can only get maybe 6 seconds... Guess I will have to work on that.

probably cleaned out the bearings, minimal oil in the bearing

I remember with the TB03, shimming it too much can cause friction. Also, if it's like the TRF416, addinga 0.1mm between the upper and lower bulkhead might be good.
