I added 1 x 0.1mm shim on the diffs to eliminate any side movements. On the manual it only has 0.3mm shims on both sides, but adding 1 x 0.1mm shim takes out any play. Still unsure which side is best to add one but is now rock solid

I also tried adding shims on the smaller bevel gears but left it as per manual. Still not convince that having e-clips are better than say a small screw to hold the gears in place..

I have just finished building my Evo 5 and there is something I would like to know. The instructions states that the servo saver be position at neutral and use the hole beside the center. By doing so, I have to run my steering EPA 90 on one side and !120 on the other side. Feels kind of odd to me. May I know the reason for doing this or should I just run it at neutral. Thanks for any advice.

YEah it is wierd, I think it has to do with the angle of the steering link, you'll love the car. It s so free. And I had about 20 laps on the layout at SIR when I got the car, and I broke the track record with the 4th pack in the car.

Ran the car again yesterday and was really quick, but broke another front bevel gear Definitely needs the optional bevel gears. Does anyone have an ETA on them yet?

Gears are available at most online shops and even ebay.

Car was really hooked yesterday and even posted the quickest lap in stock. Just need to drive the car smoother to make the 8 minute race

Were you using a 23t, if so what rollout were you using, I was about 29mm and just couldn't keep up.

I had my first race with my Evo5 yesterday and I have to say I was fairly impressed

Having raced a 415 MSX over the past 6 month, I was expecting the Evo to feel different but not really be any quicker or slower in lap times.

I was very surprised to find that the car was as quick as my MSX almost immediately!

At my local track, 17 laps is what's required to be on a good pace. It took me 4 racedays (approx 16 runs) to get a 17 lapper out of the MSX - I managed to go 17 laps on the 3rd run with the Evo5 And all this on relatively old tyres (20+ runs)

It certainly is different to drive too - much better acceleration, and more steering.

After reading this tread, I am very proud to be the owner of evo 5 . Do keep posting the news, good or bad.

So can anyone tell a different between using a standard screws and titanium screws and blue screws? I was thinking of getting a set of blue screws.

Weight savings with the blue/titanium screw set is around 15-20 grams. The more blue the better.

Does anyone know where I can get gears for it? No one seems to have them yet.

Thanks

Over seas, Tamiya america didn't think they needed to put the gears in the same order as the kits, I guess.
