sandpaper, that sounds like the best and easy to do option

sandpaper wouldn't seem to be a problem on a belt car, but it would seem sandpaper on an enclosed gear diff would get sand in the teeth of the gears

Seriously, I doubt it. The sandpaper isn't ment to move (it's a spool after all), just grip the plate. The "sand" would only fall off is due to a sanding action...
Hence it's very unlikely any sand would cause a problem. Use a high grit #, and really wouldn't be a problem.

I cant see why you should have problems with the EVO IV spool?!? I've used it with the TA05 steel outdrives for almost a year now. No mods. Fits perfect! :-)

Honestly, I have the same issue as infokiz, it just won't fit in the bulkhead, as the distance between the bearings is different, and I couldn't get the meshing right.
Seems like some get ones that fit no issues, and other have this problem... not a clue why

No mods. Fits like a glove...

I use a couple of .1mm shims to take up play, but thats it.
I can check agin with the part number, but I'm sure its the EVO IV spool from tamiya.

Thx, OleC. Well from what you and TryHard are saying, looks like I should just test fit mine to see if it works. Sounds llike it's a hit or miss kind of thing

hmm, I think I might have an answer to this...

You mention you are using the TA05 steel outdrives. I've had a quick look at some pictures (unfortuantly I don't have any to hand atm, so don't know if this is fully correct), and it would appear that the flange to hold the bearing in place is thinner on steel cup, than on the standard Evo4 black plastic cup. This would mean the bearings could be placed closer together, enabling a drop in fit...
Do you still have the plastic outdrives? any chance you could confirm if this is the case?

Cheers
Ed

are the black plastic ones have the same thickness sleeve as the white delrin that comes with MRE spool? cus i can double check those.

makes sense though to run the TA05 spool drive cups since they are steel and would hold up better.

Not sure about the spacing on the drive cups, worth checking the MRE ones though

BTW, my Evo5 is still for sale;

quick question, is the servo arm included in the kit a servo saver? If so how does it work?

Cheers
