thanks for the support GuyIsDamnGood ,

i have almost same conversation in tb-02 forum and everybody is against me , they trying to avoid the play that TB-02 has on driveshaft (shiming and stuff), which has a LOT of play but i think tamiya did it on purpose as protection on some crashes in the same way (but not so sophisticated ) than evo 5 cupjoint system

Hey DrKucho; you have a point. I`m sure the Tamiya Builders know the kit has some play.....and it`s there for some reason. Otherwise they would have built something around it.

Take Care

I dont think so. I think that Tamiya dont come out with the alu ones wich where shown at the Evo5 presentation, bacause the standard bevel gears are very relayable.

I also thought that i need the alu ones, but after a few races i changed my (i dont know the word) mind ?!?!

By the way. The last weekend is reached the first place after the qualifiying session in a 23T Race.

The gap from the 1īst to the 3īrd was 0,8 sec. (runtime 7min).

And that only with one battery of practice at sunday morning.

I am so proud on me ;-) and of corse of my Evo5.

@Ed. The Care was setupt based at yours, with a few modifications.

Greetings from Austria,

Blueman

can you use a TA05 battery strap on the evo 5? and does the kit use metric screws?

AFAIK Tamiya don't do non-metric. Go check the TA05 thread.

I don`t think that TA05 Carbon Battery Plate(53884 - $24.00) would be a good fit the Evo 5.
-The TA05`s stock plate has a Rounded Side(for Side by Side Batteries) and a Flat Side for Stick Packs.
-The Evo 5`s stock plate has 2 Flat Sides.

I was thinking about putting that part on My Evo 5; but I`m worried it won`t fit.
-It Might work. I`ll look at it again.

The battery strap will work on an evo 5. I run a square carbon strap on my evo 5 and a metal on on my evo 4. The square site list the ta-05 strap as fitting the evo 4. I have tried my square evo 4 metal on the evo 5 and its a perfect fit. one can only assume it would be the same for Tamiya made parts.

Hey guys.. why run a strap? It just adds weight and makes it easier to tweak.

Has anyone played with the shimming on the ballends (ackerman) on the steering bell cranks? What changes did it make?

I noticed that the layout is very odd compared to most other RC cars...

Played with the ball studs this weekend (although on the MRE not Evo), more shims behind (moving the link forward) adds steering, but makes the car very responsive...I tried 1mm, and went back to 0.5mm straight away for the next round. Admitadly, I wasn't having the best of days, so I need to try it again (on the evo), but everyone I spoke too about it says that adding shims adds steering.
The reverse is true on the hub (moving the link back makes it less responsive)

Thanks for the info Dtech.
-The Evo 5 needs a Carbon Battery Holder/Brace/Plate if you use Stick Packs(like Myself).....it would give it a more Carbon - Race look.

I believe the TB02 Battery Plate(49366 - $12.00) would fit the TA05, TB Evo 4 and 5.(But I don`t know if the TB02R writing is stuck on that Plate.....?)
-The TA05`s Battery Plate looks better.

Take Care


Thanks
