Mostly it pushes on the final righthand 180 degree turn (before the dogleg and the start line).

so on the right hander?? I would check tweek, and make sure the camber, and droop are the same from side to side.

or is their a kit available to make them fit?


I was thinking about getting an evo V
Just like most carbon chassis on modern touring cars, I would file away some of the sharp corners in the battery slots that actually touch the batteries... in a crash, the impact can damage the battery.

So I would file the battery slots a bit, apply some CA glue to seal it, and I personally use tape to hold my batteries down.

Filing the slots also has the benefit of lowering your CG (ie. lower battery = lower CG).

Hello. I would like to know if any one knows if the Tamiya spool for this kit will fit in the TB02. Thanks for your help.

As far as I have heard, there has been no spool for a tb evo V, most people are still basically using the evo IV spool with some modification... (i think they use the gear from the evo V to get it to work. You will have better luck looking at the evo IV thread i think.

btw, tamiya has just been quite about those metals gears haven't they... sigh... although i think they may not be necessary... just cool to see how they can affect the drive train and will it truely make the car better

Is the EVO5 easy to work on compared to other shaft tourers (Pro4 and Yoke SD)? Thanks. Thinking of getting one. Looking for an easy car to clean.

In my experience... (i have never worked on any other shafty, this is my first) changing spur gear is still a pain to me, but there are people on this forum that changing spur gears do not bother them, and you do not need to change spur gears often anyway. the front diff cover requires 7 screws to be removed if i remember right, and if u run parking lots, beware of crap getting into ur front diff.

other than that, this car is awesome, it truely is for 19T and I think anyone with the proper skills can be competitive with this car.

agreed, I do really like this car... although being pressured to run my MRE at the moment, even though it's being saved for modified at 2day event soon.

Anyway, there is a technique I posted a while back which means you can change spurs without needing to take the rear gearbox apart.... just need a ball-headed hex driver. I'll search through here and see if I can find it.

On another point, tried fitting a Evo4 spool recently, found it a tight fit, and as I was pushed for time, just put the one way back in.
Found some time last night to try again. IMO, with modifying the drive cups, or bevel gear, it won't fit. It pushes the bevel into the pinion too far, and even though it rotates, it's very tight... which too me doesn't feel right.
I might take a sanding disk to the back of a bevel gear and remove some material, which should allow it to fit.

Regards
Ed

I was able to fit the Evo IV delrin outdrives in the rear. It was a little squeeze due to the outdrive cups being really close to the sway bar, but it fits. I still haven't actually tried putting the spool in, though.

In regards to working on the car, I personally prefer working on the Evo IV with the MS 2-piece motor mount. The Evo V is a little harder to work on, but I can live with it especially considering how much better this car is over the Evo IV. I've also owned TC3's & Pro4's. Out of the bunch, the TC3 was by far the easiest to work on. The Pro4 would be about the same as the Evo's. On second thought, the Pro4 was a little more trouble as it took more screws to remove to get to the diffs & spur. That's also not to mention that it is much more difficult to remove the screws from carbon graphite composite than from aluminum parts.

Hi,

I have a couple of Q's for you. are you running your EVO V on foams/carpet??? and have thought about adding a second chassis/top deck brace for support/stiffness??
I have finally got a EVO V and am going to be runing on carpet with foams and am looking for ideas. I have raced TC3's in the past. but this car is much better than what I'm running now.

Thanks

I don't run foams or carpet, but another option to stiffen up the chassis would be to consider adding two more aluminum center post in front or behind the middle one.

Hi Tim,
I have considered it, and there should be no reason why it shouldn't work, just need some longer screws.
At the moment I'm actually trying to get a custom made top-deck made up (it's 3mm thick as well)... I have the plate, and design. just need to spend a while writing the CNC program to actually cut it (CNC machine I have access to unfortuantly doesn't recognise CAD files... fingers crossed the new one work is considering will have... I smell custom carbon parts hehehe)

I do already have the extra aluminium posts, which certainly helps. Not expensive to do either, and the holes are all pre-drilled in the top deck and chassis

HiH
Ed
