maybe it`s because there is a bit of play in the sus bit`s ,thus takes impact better

never had a problem ,had more things go wrong with me cyclone then this evo 5
hi jolly i was just curious have you ever had a hard crash, head-on with your evo 5? just trying to work out if the new evo 5 gears are holding up with hard impact, as i've been told with hard head-on impacts theres a chance the small pinion gear will strip.

Ive had a few big impacts with my evo, hard enough to move the motor and strip a spur... but I'm still on my original front Bevel and pinion. Shimmed right, there aint an issue.

HiH
Ed
thanks tryhard

yea thats what i thought as well with correct shimming it should hold up a good as the evo 4 gears. but he insisted that he shimmed it very well and emphasised that the small pinion diff gears are the ones that get damaged during hard impacts.

only way to find out is first hand exprience my new evo 5 kit should arrive within 2 days cant wait to build it

i see some people still asking about stripped bevel gears.... but isn't the one-piece bulkhead plus the floating shaft supposed to eliminate that from happening??

It's not too difficult, i've got it down to less than five minutes now.
Method I use is...
1) remove top deck
2) remove centre shaft (you can just squeeze it out if you remove the UJ link at the front)
3) take the pin out of the rear drive cup, and undo motor bulkhead, sliding off the rear inut shaft.
4) Loosen the lower rear bulkhead screws (allows you to remove the spur without it hitting the chassis plate)
5) Slid off the spur mount, change the spur
6) Reverse the process.

Sounds complicates, but after you've done it a few times, not really difficult.

Default on going setup`s

I am gone back to kit setup ,because i have completly lost the plot for this car
went on thurs eve up agaainst the big boy`s & was 1.5 sec a lap down

went to hard on springs by a long shot (x-ray dark blue )
just need blue or even just the white`s other wise the car just glide`s around with no consintencey in grip level from one corner to another

so back to basic`s
other then these bit`s
50wt front /45wt rear (oil)
x-ray blue front & x-ray white rear

even gone back to the 1D & 1XA 1E blocks , taken off the evo 4 ones

this is so embarrising owning up to this Mess

Colin... you checked your tyres aren't knackered? I know your a tight wad and all

I've been running Xray Blue/ Light Blue on mine... does feel a little too stiff, especially for a flowing track. Try just the front roll bar as well, should help.

Lolly if you drive like a whack and then complain that the car's not handling well anymore i suggest checking your hinge pins for bent ones, even slightly bent they make the car feel a real mess. To check simply turn them while in the wishbone, if you feel a hard spot it's bent and needs replacing.
