I hate to say it but I put the xray carbon strap on mine.
Works great just had to drill 2 holes.

Default How does the Evo V drive

Compared to the Pro 4 and any of the high end belt cars (which I think are lame, but thats just me), how does the Evo V drive/handle? It is one sweet looking ride and I have to give you Tamiya boys your props for keeping shaft alive.

i might be wrong but i think it might not fit if the EVO 5 is using reversible SHORT suspension arms but if its the LONG suspension arms it might fit, better double check just to be sure

Personally, I find the Evo5 to handle pretty darn good. Have to admit, it's never felt as settled on the track as my MSX/MRE has... but then again the MSX/MRE never punched out the corners like the Evo5 does
I'm really loving the car at the moment... apart from one thing, its appitite for spur gears Hopefully I've now solved that problem, by sanding the back of the motor mount... looks awful, but should do the trick.

Cheers
Ed

Basically, I just roughend up the motor mount to get it to grip the motor better... I've lost about 7 or 8 spurs on the car in less than 6 months, (verus 1 in 3yrs on the 415) simply as the motor has moved following a large hit.
I'm hoping that this should solve that particular problem.
Good thing is I have a spur change down to about 3mins or so now... Theres even no need to remove the rear diff...

No mods needed, just a Hudy ball end hex driver...

Basically, take the top deck off, and undo your motor.

Remove front drive cup pin, then slightly flex the chassis to pop the centre shaft out of the front drive cup (it also needs to be as far back in the rear drive cup as possible). Then pop the pin out of the rear drive cup, slide off the spacers, and remove the motor mount.

Now the clever bit... take your ball headed wrench, slide it under the rear shock tower, between the uppr bulkheads, you can just get to the screws holding the spur gear to the mount this way .

Undo the two screws, pop the spurmount off, and you now have enough play to remove the spur gear itself (just make sure you catch all your spacers, and the spur mount pin).

Slid your new spur on, then the mount, line it up, and re-screw... then reverse the rest.

Clever eh...

Is ur spur getting chewed up because of crashes? (no offense, but I am just curious)... or because u are running mod as well? I run 19T and haven't lost a spur yet. I am using TIR 64p pinion. (and its not that i don't crash... but because I am a parking lot racer at best, there isn't anything much to hit!)
