Enlarge the center hole of the Evo 4 pinion gear to 3mm with a small round file.
Then finished of the face where the e-clip holds the gear to the input shaft till there was enough clearance to fasten the clip on and re-shimmed the shat and diff to get normal clearance
The bevel pinion on the left in the pictures is the 17 tooth Evo4.
I'm not sure if this helps anybody out a great deal but fixing up the pinion only takes ten miniutes.

Probably a stupid question and wrong thread but,

I've read the last 3 pages and got me thinking of dusting off my fully hopped up EVO IV, will some of these mods work for the IV like the TB04 gear diff as I'm not sure how close/different the EVO IV and V bulkheads are, I ran a TB03 spool with shims if that helps. Just want to get the EVO IV going in spec GT and leave the 417 for blinky/whatever..

So, ETS is over and the car performed well. But as I mentioned before, the driver is the main problem. It's not easy to compensate 2 years without RC.

The gear diff was ok, but it's always leaking. Probably anyone can help me to seal it.

Cause of a gear ratio change in the rules 2 days before ETS I had to use a 87 spur gear, I couldn't find a 86 so quickly.

I ended up using the TB04 gear diff with the EVO4 gears to give me the 2.295 ratio. I have a 84T spur on right now. I was using 86T for previous races. Haven't tried the new ratio yet.

I have an EVO MS motor mount I had as a backup that was never installed and a slightly used bearing cap for it as well for sale. I am not aware of any place you can buy these parts anymore. If you have an Exotek conversion and you want to run the MS mount here is your chance! You can use the standard spur gear adaptor with this mount. $50 shipped to the states for both.

Some on this thead have done some very witty mods to their Evo 5's. Great job! I've had a NIB evo5ms and exotek conversion kit sitting on my work desk for some months now but haven't been able to work on them due to my work schedule...until today. I opened everything up today but quickly realized I needed (wanted) ceramic bearings and Ti screws, amongst some other goodies.

Looking around very quickly, it seems boca bearings have a nice ceramic bearing and Lunsford have very high quality Ti screws.

@JanTRF and JoeyE: Could you please clarify what is the most sutible combination of parts in regards to the Evo5MS/ TB04 gear diff/ gears/ spool/ shafts?

Does the diff covers fit properly with the TB04 gear diff?

If I remember correctly, the EvoIV spool was discontinued long ago and was very rare when first released. Is the EvoIV and TB03/Tb04 spools very similar or need modding to work in the Evo5ms?

Cheers to you all.

I didn't use any of the covers for my gearing, front and back. The spool I used up front is from a TB03. Rear gear diff is from a TB04.

Internals:
54533 Gear diff cross shaft
54540 Steel bevel gears
54543 Aluminum cup joints
54125 Spool

Thanks for the reply JoeyE.

Has anyone tried the new 418 susp. arms on the Evo5Exotek conv.? I'm curious if the new antiroll system and mounting positions will be setup compatible.

Ordered the stuff but hasn't come in yet. The sway bars should work. I ordered the sway bars for the 418 and the end pieces. But......not going to be on the EVO5MS. Going to save it for the TB04

I ordered them, too. And I already got them, but my car is not here, so I can't try.

I compared the susp. arms with the original parts and they should fit, also with the Evo V sway bars. The only thing you have to do, is to change the spacing in the susp. mounts.

The diff covers doesn't fit with the TB04 diff, only with the spool.
You can use the Evo IV and TB03 spool, I use the Evo IV spool. But I think, they are hard to get. The TB04 Oneway/Spool should also fit.

For the diff, you can also use 42259 differential O-Rings.

I can't wait, to make the next changes on my Evo V.

I was collecting part #'s for the TB04 gear diff noticed that it looks like there is no complete kit...i.e. outdrives, gaskets, main gear has to be purchased seperately...please correct me if I'm wrong.

so far, this is the list. I'm not sure about the main gear part #. If I missed anything please feel free to add on.
51549 Gear Diff Unit
????? main gear
54533 Gear diff cross shaft
54540 Steel bevel gears
54543 Aluminum cup joints

cheers

You need:

51470 Maintenance Parts for Gear Differential
51547 One Way / Gear Differential Unit Ring Gear Set (40T)
51549 Gear Differential Unit Bevel Gear Set
51553 Gear Differential Unit Gasket
54533 Cross Shaft
54540 Steel Bevel Gears (you can also use the plastic ones)
54543 Aluminum Cup Joints
8x M2x8mm Screw
Oil

You can also add 4 shims (0.1mm/3mm)
I use them with the plastic bevel gears after sanding them down.
