Has anyone tried Tamiya Evo 3 outdrives with an HPI gear to make a front diff or one-way?

Hey folks, got a ? for you.... Last night I finished up the rolling chassis. when I tightened down the top deck, I noticed that the drive train got quite a bit tighter, (not nearly as free as some I've played with at the track). So I was wondering, did you have to do anything special to keep the drivetrain free once you clamped all the parts on, or will my drivetrain free up with time? I assembled the entire kit as they describe in the manual. I used the stock white/clear grease on the gears, and was very careful and took my time assembling the gearboxes as per the directions.

I am a little concerned because, as I said, the others who have this car already said they assembled it exactly as the directions say, and their drivetrain are much more free than mine currently is.

Thanks for any help you can can provide!

You did something wrong then. Take it apart and check all of your spacers on the spur gear shaft. Also find out which screws make it tighter and back track. This car should free spin out of the box.

I did this already. I went over the directions "with a fine tooth comb" so to speak, and I cannot find any errors in building, neither the actual gearbox or the spur gear shaft. I'll go over them again tonight when I get home from work. Perhaps I'm reading the directions wrong....but I've been building race kits for over 12 years....so I kinda' doubt this is the case.

I noticed that when I loosened the two outer screws that reside on the far ends of the gearboxes things got alot more free. This is obviously because now the gearboxes are now not clamped together, but clearly I cannot run the car with those two screws loose all the time.

It's not possible that I tighted the gearbox screws down TOO much....is it? I mean the plastic would strip out first, right?
