I cleaned out all the bearing from new and oiled them.

As for lubing the gears, I suggest using Tamiya's Ceramic grease - my "secret weapon" for years

Did you remove the bearings from the steering post and arms? Also did you lube everything according to book spec or did you leave a few things out?

Yep, I removed the bearings in the steering and did them too, though I don't think this step is particularly important.

Besides from oiling the bearings and greasing the gears, the only other thing I did was to use the anti-wear grease on the driveshafts and the diff thrust bearing as shown in the manual.

Default EVO V

Figure I would give you EVO V guys first shot.
I'm thinking of selling my EVO V kit,
Kit is still unbuilt, brand spanking new in the box.

Send me a PM and I'll give you a good price...probably way better than any shop has it for, right now that is for sure.

thanks

I`ve did a practice run on the TB Evo 5 today. It runs alright.....(It would run better if I can just stop getting the Early Set-Up Steering Problems when I first build a Kit.....it won`t go straight.)

-I`ve installed a Front Ball Diff.....$100.00.....11 parts(bags) - sold separately.
-Checked the Servo Saver. . . . .(those Tamiya Servo Savers.)
-Checked the Turnbuckles.....I followed the instructions and measured the Steering Linkage - Turnbuckles exactly.
- -I don`t have a Set-Up Board; so it takes me a while.....Ha Ha!

On My HPI Pro 4 it was the Servo Saver that needed to be tightened and I had to give it some Front Toe-In.

Anyone know another way(faster way) that will set-up a Kit`s/Car`s Steering; without using a Set-Up Board?

-----Sweep the Street - Track - Surface and it will keep alot of dirt and dust off your Kit/Car.

Thanks

Take Care.

try and borrow some setup gauges.

If not, there is a technique you can do, all you need is a straight edge and set square (and a set of unmounted wheels). I don't have time atm to explain it, but I'll post later with a pic.

In a previous issue of XRC(rc411.com) there is actually a simple way to make your own set up board, CK their web site and see if it's in there.
