Dunno but read on

OK with the 0.4 module gears the combinations of spur/pinion were lifted from the Evo III/IV/5 manuals. I then used some maths to come up with 48dp spurs that have approximately the same diameter as the 04 spurs, and then some 48dp pinions to give FDRs approximately the same as the 04 gears.

I don't own an Evo so I cannot offer personal experience, but after reading so many posts about this ratio and that ratio and 04 (or 64dp) versus 48dp, I figured that there must be a relatively simple way, using simple mathematics, to make a comparison, and the pdf I posted is the result. I am sure that those who like to experiment will do so, so take it at face value and enjoy

Perhaps I should add E&OE at this point

Feedback on dud ratios or pinion spur combinations not in the tables that do work would be useful to update the tables.

I think 100 is the biggest I've fitted... I'm pretty sure a 102 will poke through underneath the chassis, a a bit of chamfering of the upper deck holes (for security's sake).

HiH

do all those gearing ratios "fit" without hitting anything etc?

pretty much. The 100 is close, the 102 closer still. I chamfered the edges of the top deck where the spur comes through, just to make sure.

That should fit - it's the equivalent of 71/36 in 48dp.

94 fits fine.. although I haven't measured what the smallest pinion gear you can run is. Would have a guess at around 22/23, maybe 24.

Default TB Evo 5 SET-UP

I`ve found a Perfect Set-Up for the Evo 5:

----------Aspalt Set-Up----------

Camber- Front: 0-Degree - Rear: 1-Degree
Caster- Front: 4-Degrees - Rear: 0
Toe- Front: 1 Toe-Out - Rear: 2 Toe-In
Droop- Front: 5mm - Rear: 5mm
Ride Height- Front: 5mm - Rear: 5mm
Shock Fluid- Front: Tamiya 400wt - Rear: Tamiya 400wt
Shock Piston- Front: 2 Hole - Rear: 2 Hole
Springs- Front: Yellow(Medium) - Rear: Yellow(Medium)
Swaybar- None

-Motor: 13-Turn
-Tires: Sorex 36R
-Gearing: 32-Pinion - 96-Spur

You can set-up your own Roll Center(Camber Link Shims) and Shock Mounting Positions.

Sorry; I don`t run on Carpet so I don`t have a Set-Up for it.

Take Care

You should try and use the biggest spur gear you can in a shaft drive, firstly because there is less chance of the pinion touching anything and secondly because you will be moving the motor further away from the centre of the car, which will balance the left/right weight distribution a little more evenly.

Default My 1st Race with the TB Evo 5

I was using(Racing with) My Old Set-Up1-Degree Front Toe-In, Front Droop: 6mm - Rear Droop 5mm). . . . .I was doing alright.....Until I hit a Barrier(very Lightly) on the Left Side of the Car.
-It was now pulling to the Right Side.
-I thought I killed the Left Aluminum Axle.

I went to to My Pit Area and decided to use My New Set-Up(I`ve Posted It Earlier).
-What a Difference. . . . .It doesn`t wander; It`s Better.....and I didn`t kill the Aluminum Axle.

What does this tell Us TB Evo 5 Owners?.....Be Careful. The Evo 5 Can`t really take Side Hits(anywhere near the Wheels).

I`ve had a Side Crash with My Pro 4 and NO DAMAGE.....I didn`t have to change anything after the crash.


I like the Evo 5 Diffs over the Pro 4 Diffs. Set the Diff(s) and You`re Good To Go.
The Evo 5 Steering is more Free over the Pro 4 Steering.
For some reason the Pro 4 feels Faster than the Evo 5. --I`ll do some Lap Tests with both Cars/Kits when the Weather Warms-Up again.....(It was Warm in New York City on Monday - Thursday. . . . .It`s Friday and it`s Snowing.)

Take Care
