How many screws need to be removed to access the front and rear diffs? Do any chassis or towers need to be removed? About how much time to get at them??

Man this car is hot!!! My SD took 2 screws for the rear and 2 for the front plus removal of the bumper

nope. it will stick out below the chassis. 100T would be the biggest is my guess. 96T is already very close.

7 total. 3 for the gear cover and 4 for the bulkhead. (front and back). if you dont run the gear covers, then just 4 screws.

Guys,

For those that need it, I've done an interactive pdf setup sheet for the Evo5.

Usual deal, just fill it in and print it out

You can get it HERE

It's about 2mb if that's a concern

I just got an email from a driver saying that he got his to drop in. I'll go back and see if I was smoking crack when I tried using the spool

rcnewb2004... yes the gearboxs are sealed. spur gear is the only thing exposed to debris (i also race on a parking lot track).
whats the std spur size? and whats the largest you can fit?
Just going to add a few more bits to my order... can't wait to get mine now

Cheers
Ed

you crack me up ed ... are you gonna do an evoV site? 415 site is dialed!

the car comes with two spurs.. 90T and 96T. crappy plastic quality though. so i threw in a RW Racing 96T spur right off the bat. The other went to Rod C... when he started to build his.

jhigga15.. i ASSUME that it wont fit since the evoV has a lower COG and the bulkheads sit lower. so the covers might be too tall.

I don't see why not.... it's something I'll give some thought too... thanks for the kind words over the current one (still meaning to finish off the tips section, not done yet... oh well)

Just had a thought, with my new job, i have access to loads of facilities to do a pucka job on the chassis for this car.... I even have access to pre-preg carbon to build stuff, and mould making equipment... Mwhuaha!

Cheers
Ed

Default Spur and pinion protection

For those who are parking lot racers, or who are just concerned with spurs and pinions being chewed up by rocks and such, i found a very simply method which saved many spurs gears from death I've done this for more than 2 years now.

Just using scrap lexan from your body and mounting it on the screw next to the spur gear. I too race in parking lots and found that this saved my spur gear dramatically, probably reducing 98% of all rocks entering the danger zone

Here is my example on my evo4MS:
