I have solved this problem by taking gasket material and cutting a shape of the diff covers out, I use a 300 gasket, it works perfectly where no dust gets in since the material has a small compression factor and works 100% for me. You usually see this being used between Nitro engines and the exhaust connector to ensure a good seal.

I will put some photos up to show you guys if you want.

you can actually get these gaskets at a automotive outlet. ask for gasket paper and they will show you a range of thicknesses and different materials. all you do then is cut them up to whatever shape you want.

great idea naut!

Pics will be on the way, I just have to get my digi camera out and take some shots!

On a side note, does anybody know if the EVO 4 direct spool will fit on the evo 5? Here is a link to the one I want to use: http://www.speedtechrc.com/store/ebp...id=276&id=5256

ALSO, can one put the Evo 4 suspension mounts on the EVO 5, or would the TRF415 suspension mounts work?

If anybody has any other ideas, feel free to give their suggestions!

The EVO4 spool won't work with the EVO5. Suspension mounts, If your referring to the blocks like A, B and so on. All the blocks are interchangeable with any Tamiya car that use's blocks to hold the hinge pins in place.

It will work. Just put the Evo V one-way gear on it and use the Evo V bearings.
Shim it right.

Hey TB Evo 5 Guys.
I`ve recieved My TB EVo 5 last week(built it) and it`s a Nice Kit.
It was easy to build and it comes with a Really Nice Aluminum Motor Heat-Sink.

But those Diff Covers; I thought I would be able to seal those things.....I was wrong. I`m worried about running it on My Street Test Track. I`ll have to sweep and Mop it.....Ha Ha!

For the price of the kit($435.00); I thought they would have made better Diff Covers.

Take Care.

Hi guys,

Sorry I have not put up any pictures, I am in the process of rebuilding my Evo V, once this is done you will get as many pics as you want!

I have a quick question! I am getting ready to do a full bearing clean on my kit, however, I do not know how to approach the cleaning of the bearings in the steering arms and the steering bridge. Must I leave those alone, yank the bearings out or just clean them as they are and apply bearing oil just like the rest?

I also read when David Jun did his Evo V he left the 2x 850 bearings, why did he not do his rear diff bearings? Should I leave the thrust bearing out of the mix?

Link to article: http://www.tamiyausa.com/articles/fe...article-id=226

Thanks a mil

the nbearings in the steering arms and bridge are pressed in, if i am not mistaken. i think taking them out might be risky 'cos i might be a bit difficult to re-seat them perfectly again.

just a thought.

do you run the front and rear bevel gears dry or lubed??

When I built the Evo for the first time I ran them lubed (book spec), but I think this time I am going to put them in clean as I know this will reduce drag on the parts. I just need to find out about the bearings before I can actually go any further
