HiH

Thanks Ed

hey just curious on your thoughts on why tamiya had design that section to have abit of slope. my thoughts are tweak issues related maybe? to free up the steering movements? to make the steering system more forgiving under impact?

TBH... The steering systems (or at least the amount of slop in them) has long been a fobbile with the TRF cars. It was worse on the old style system though... the new one is much more slop free.
It's not a mjor issue though, and doesn't seem to affect performance.

HiH

Do you have a pic of where to put the shims? Sorry, my car terminology is poor and am having troubles imagining where it is

Hey TB Evo 5 Guys. . . . . I want to get a TB Evo 5; but I can`t find a Hobby Spot that has any in the U.S.

I like Shaft Drive Kits/Cars and the Evo 5 is 1 out of 2 Shaft Drive Kits that are out there(the other is the Kyosho TF-5). Shaft Drive Kits/Cars will soon be no more.

Overall; do the parts go together well? How does it run?

-I plan on putting a 10-Turn in My Evo 5(if I ever get it). Anyone running a motor faster than 19-Turns in their Evo 5? If any; please tell me the info.

Thanks

Take Care.

Why does Tamiya suggest adding a bead of glue around the edges of the carbon fibre pieces?

Anyone doin' that?

It seals the edge of the graphite to stop delaminating and also seals the battery slots against electrical shorting

I don't have a pic, or camera to hand.

Basically, the shim goes on the steering post, between the steering arm (the bell crank) and the long spacer that stops the arm riding up the post. Hopefully that helps.

Have any of you guys noticed that the bellcrank is rubbing against the bottom deck? If so any solutions? I was thinking of putting a shim between the bottom of the post and the bellcrank.

Thought?

I think he means the following

<----- Top Deck
<----- Long spacer
<----- Shim
<----- Bellcrank
<----- Bottom of post
<----- Bottom deck

this is to cure your problem

but to cure the spacer from moving up and down from the steering post it would be like this

top deck
long spacer
shims
bellcrank
shim
bottom of post
bottom deck

hope that helps
