that was David Juns Evo4, using his suspension setup.
Evo5 was only released earlier this year.

does the evo 5 diff gear fit onto the evo 4 spool with no modifications?

also how do those couplings / outdrives fit onto the spool
Thats correct

And the steel outdrives from the TA-05 spool is a perfect fit

I dont know if anyone here can help me but as I understand it, the Evo 5 steering set up is less prone to slop than the Evo 4 or 415, and having both the Evo 4 and 415, I'm determined to try and improve the steering systems on them. So, does the Evo 5 steering set up fit the Evo 4/415, or any other set up which is less prone to slop fit.

I think that overall Tamiya TRF cars are great, apart from the steering set up.

Any help gratefully recieved.

Hi terry,

The new steering setup isn't a direct fit for either the evo4 or non-MRE/MSXX 415's. As the bell cranks are longer, it requires new holes in the chassis, and a new top deck.
In all honesty, whilst the old system does have a fair amount of slop, it really doesn't affect the performance of the car(s).

If your at C-wars this weekend, I'll pop over and have a chat

Ed

Hi Ed

Thanks m8, I will be at the Wars on Sunday so will see you then.

I know what you mean about it not really affecting the cars performance, although, that said, I put Aidan's car on the set up board last night and the steering had so much slop, I couldn't get the wheels lined up So, I dont know if it will go in a straight line or not, and with such a tight schedule on Sunday, I cant keep taking it back to the track to check it. I really wish Tamiya would get it's act together here, would turn the cars from really good to awesome

quick tip to help.
When you put the car on the board, push back against the front wheels. This will line up the front wheels as would happen when they are running on track. Best way to get the wheels lined up, works with any car.
