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?

I never thought of that, but you might just be right I'll check ASAP and post back!

hye Try Hard ,i got a question for you

i was checking your Toe Blocks excel located at

http://www.thard.co.uk/excel/ToeBlocks.xls

it is for TRF and evo 4, but i think is the same for evo5 right?

so, i thought that evo 5 came with 2 deg of rear toe in of the box with XA+E blocks but your excel shows that that combination is 3 deg toe in

so question is evo 5 cames wth 3 degre of rear toe out ? or maybe your excel is wrong? maybe the excel doesnt work for evo 5?

thanks in advance

Okay, I tested the EVO 4 spool with EVO 5 Gear, TA05 steel outdrives as well as stock outdrives. The stock didn't feel too bad but it was a little tight. As I rotated the gear, I would hit a spot after three revolutions or so where the gears would stick. I didn't have that problem when using the steel outdrives. The drivetrain was still very smooth, but still a "little (tiny bit)" tighter than normal. I think it's raceable though.

So, Steel outdrive "yes"...stock outdrives "No"

Yup, the chart is the same for the Evo5, as the blocks are the same as thoose for the 415 (Evo4's are the same width, but 1mm taller).
Stock settings is 3deg. there is 0.5deg between each block, and the blocks go narrowest to widest

1XD, 1XC, 1XB, 1XA, 1X, 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 1E

With 6 steps between XA and E, this equals 3 degrees (6 x 0.5=3 )

HiH

Yeah, I think a gear break in session would be very beneficial too

more steering on a evo5? the car steers a lot already, if your car is not gettin into turns might be becuase wrong tires , lots of toe in , front springs very hard, front damping too thick ... i dont know , there is a lot of stuff to check ...

RCMart is a bit short on detail, and unfortunately so is the Yeah Racing website with respect to bearing sizes. Assume you mean your TB05 (950) bearings are too small? Try using 1150s.
