Is there anything we can do to seal the gear cover better? I keep getting a lot of fine sand...and they eat up the gears pretty quick. I try put some grease around the edges of the gear cover to catch them but some still finds there way to the gears...

Hm.. I dont have issues but i race only on permanent tracks.

Do you grease the gears? If yes, then run them dry. Then the sand will not stick on them and a second big advantage is the reduce of friction in the drivetrain and it spinns much better.

Another thing. Try it one time without the gearcovers ??? Maybee it works.

To seal it better i have also no better idea. I would use the AW-Grease because this is very sticky.

Hey Blueman, those are awesome pictures. You are making me envious... I wish my evo5 could look as good!

One question though... is it a good idea to leave the wires over the fan like that on the evo5?

Hey guys, this is my first time in the Evo 5 forum.

Ever since getting the Mamba system, I've shattered the drivetrain of both a TT-01 and Pro2 (RS4 Rally). I've come here because I am looking to purchase a Evo 4, which seems similar to the Evo 5.

My question is, how does the drivetrain hold up? Are there parts interchangeable between them?

Yes, I have done searches on both the forum and on google, so I figure that you guys might be able to help.

I am not a racer, but drifter. I am willing to see if I can get this chassis to go sideways nicely, seeing as it seems to have a nice drivetrain and plenty of parts.

Thanks ahead of time for any responses!

there is a separate thread for evo iv's. gears are not interchangeable between the two, but suspension parts are compatible. not much else can be used. Gears are made from graphite material, so they will be much more durable than tt01. evo's come with oneway stock. if you dont like using one ways, it might be a pain in the neck sourcing parts for a second diff or, finding the elusive tamiya spool.

As slomo said before, the gears and drivetrain parts are not interchangeable.

I have an Evo4MS full hopedup, but never tried drifting before. The drivetrain should holdup very well i think, because the forces on it are not very strong when you are drifting. There is (was) also a spool available for this car, wich is a good thing for you drifters (i think).

Currently my Evo4 has a retired at the moment.

The problem is to much cars, and so little Time...

Default Evo 5 MS in Stock!

For those who are interrested.

The Evo5 MS Kit is in Stock at stellamodels.net
Anybody plan to get one, or has already ordered?

I am very sad about that they deliver the kit in the new TRF Kit Family Box.

The old Evo Style Kitbox was so stylish....

I will occasionally throw on rubber tires too though, which is why my Pro 2 just shredded one of the insides of the pulleys turnign the rear belt, so it's FWD...

I was basically just asking how smooth the drivetrain is. I am assuming there is a bevel gear in the back to turn the diff?

Yes of course there is a bevel gear in the back (and front). The drivetrain is shaft typical very smooth.

When you wash out the bearings with brake cleaner, and then yust oil it (with WD40, ore other thin oils), then it will spinn very free.

Default Evo 5 MS Info Page

Found this on Tamiya japan.

http://www.tamiya.com/japan/products...5_ms/index.htm

There are some more detailed pics of the rear of the car.

If the holes on the lower deck for the motor mount are the same as of the normal 5ér, then i will get a MS motormuont and the blue Alu Spur gear frame.

Ill take my old upper deck, Cut of the rear section, drill new holes for the new motor mout, and then i have a Evo 5 "M"

Also the steering system has moved more backwards. This my be fine because of the more flex in the front section of the car, but i think to install an BL ESC it will be a horrable job......

I was going to order a MS from Rc Champ, they got them in yesturday, but by the time you add the price of the car, the bank fee, pay-pal fee, and EMS shipping your lookin at $480-$500 USD Wait till speedtech gets them, probably go for around $400.
So instead found a guy selling Evo 5's on ebay for $299 + S&h on fleabay, picked one of those up instead. Any building tips? It will get here next week. Most likely will go brushless, but I do have a 23T Tamiya motor I could throw in too.
