I ordered two sets of carbon reinforced cases from Banzai (so, total of 4 cases), and all of them have the same problem. They rock side to side along the middle when held together, and the top case has a smaller-than-necessary opening for the smaller of the two input shaft bearings.

My friend actually took my original warped case to TCS nationals to show to a Tamiya representative. I'm hoping something good will come out of that for all of us

In the meantime, maybe I should try the EVO 5 gears. Are they a direct replacement for the EVO 6 gears, or should I get additional parts to make them fit? Lots of sanding?


Troys evo 6 spins for about 9 seconds.

he did get his TB04 to spin for 5 seconds.

Id like to see how the TB04s do in the Nats... then again its asphalt and they dont use 25.5 motors there... which is where a shaft comes in handy.

Well, let's see if I can achieve the 9 second mark. I think with a front spool it'll be close, but with front and rear diffs it most likely won't make it. But that's where I'm hoping for the break-in to help, or perhaps switching to EVO 5 gears.

The large 39T bevel gear is a direct replacement. the 16T smaller bevel gear has to be sanded down or like i did, carefully drill out from the top with a 10mm wood drill so the c-clip will fit.

At least the front spins more freely with the EVO 5 spool and gears.

If or when someone does make aluminum bulk heads this drivetrain will really free up

New main chassis with holes for the EVO 5 (MS) bulkheads ?
(Or extra holes in the current main chassis if possible)
>> will test if this is possible <<

Almost done rebuilding the EVO 6 with EVO 5 bevel gears and alu bevel gears for the spur transmission. almost 8 seconds of spinning without the bearings being treated. Only thing not yet tackled is the amount of play on the bearings of the spur gear holder.

I have a friends car up to 10 seconds (verified on my phone) with the stock gears and gear boxes.

It required a lot of dremeling of the gear boxes, mainly front as the spool was tight, and more shimming and re-shimming than I care to remember.

I think I have a solution for the wobbly spur mount miter gear. I used a 3mmx6mm bearing in the miter gear after boring it out for the depth of the bearing. The layshaft at the end is about .124" so will require a tiny bit of reducing.

The blue spur mount will also need to be permanently modified to expose the reduced diameter section of the layshaft. I'm going to cut it down to the miter gear key and then use shims to set the plunge of the miter gear.

Fun stuff!
