Hey all,

I have a question for anyone here that has a EVO IV and a EVO V. Is there any noticeable improvement with the EVO V over the EVO IV?? Just wondering, because I have an EVO IV and just love the car, it drives fantastic. I love shaft drive, and wondering if I should bother with the EVO V, except of course adding another car to the Tamiya fleet I already have .

Thanks!

I also drove a Evo4MS before after i swapped over to the evo5, and for me i am glad that i have done it.

For me the car is more relayable because i only bend one set of onewaygears since i race it (for over a year), and the second big plus is that it has much more steering than the evo4.
The handling of the car in corners is overal more stable. This my depend on the short rev suspension arms.

For me, the evo5 is the best shaft drive car to get.

Greetings form Austria

This is kit is so under rated......Its a strong first in my Tamiya collection for stock racing. I have no torque steer concerns that I have heard others have...I would say because their car still have some tweak that has not been address. It really do not have the IR for Brushless but you can make it work.
The oneway is killer not jerky like the brand new TRF416. The kit is very solid and planted. I will racing it in GT1 this year overlooking the TRF416, 415 and TA05MS. God speed EVO5

I hope everyone run as well as mines does.....I couldn't be happier with a shaft kit.

The only hops I have are the EVO IV spool with MRE derlin cups. And Ceramic balls were it counts the most.

The best advice I can give about the kit is take your time building the kit! Do not rush the axles Use duty grease to void vibration. Build your diff with love. remove any binding in the suspension do not settle for even alittle bit, it is not okay. And your shocks, make sure you have the same rebound all around, so really take your time here, this is where your traction is being laid down.


PEACE

I had a EVO IV which I converted to an MS before selling it to buy an EVO V. Since I use it on asphalt with a brushless, I wasn't really able to notice much of a difference in handling. Both cars have their strengths and weaknesses. The suspension on the V is suppose to be more refined than the IV, steering on the V is suppose to be improved, V suppose to have lower CG & is lighter, and the V is suppose to be much more efficient for stock &
19T racing. The IV...I think is much easier to work on such as changing the spur gears and I think the drivetrain is much beefier on the IV which makes it better suited for mod or brushless motors. I like both cars and I would say if you can get a really good deal on a IV, it might be worth your time.

Thanks for the manual link i did get it long time ago though, and the downloaded manual dos not say which body is reccomended, don't know why, only the physical copy of the manual that was sent with the kit shows what body is reccomended, can anyone help. thx.
