Hi! I'm not in the lucky position of being an Evo6 owner, but I've had a few of the Evos for drifting in the past. Lovely cars, great handling and well built. I'm still drifting, and I would therefore like to ask all of you, if I can get a scan of the manual?
More specifically, the page(s) where the rear diff casing, bevel gear and differential is assembled.
Setting the rest up for drifting is no big deal, but I can't use it without overdrive on the rear.

Default evo5 bevel pinion gear mod

A question for the guys that have done the evo5 bevel pinion gear mod how did you hold the bevel pinion gear while drilling the 10mm hole for the e-clip?
I tried to hold it with multigrips but the plastic gear was ripped to bits??

Use a really small drill bit. Then use a slightly larger drill bit. I used (3) different drill bits until I opened the hole to the size I wanted.

What battery packs are you all using?

I've got SMC 6400 packs on mine but the motor side is about 100grams heavier than the battery side!!

What ESC ,servo,and receiver are you using?
I Use a orca ESC and a tiny orange spectum receiver moved over next to the drive shaft. 30 mm orca fan in a lexan box. 1252/savox servo but I have everything shoved as close to the drive line as I can get it. I use SMC 80c 6000mah battery I have an 52/gram on the right rear to balance the car. I may try some 90c R1Wurks batteries.This is the only thing that I am disappointed with is the chassis has no center line holes to set the balance with. I still am barely to 1450 the USGT legal weight.
I forgot to ask how long are your servo ESC and motor wires are? My wires are as short as I can make them wire is very heavy?
You can also slide the batterry out more to the right to help balance the car out.

Im using 8000 they are heavier than 6300 I usually use but help with the extra weight needed. Im running a v3.1 speedo low pro ko servo and a hpi flux motor all wires are as short as poss. I've also had to add 30g on batt side and have also moved batts out slightly to balance the car. Total weight of car is 1433g best I can get it at the moment. Out of the box I would say the car isn't great will have to do some tweaking. I also found the front drive shafts are also rubbing on the bottom of the hubs unsure why may have to dremel the hub slightly.

What do you mean by light weight? Plastic gears as opposed to the metal ones?

That hpi motor maybe heavier the newer motors. Using a lighter motor then you are using know.may help . The new Trinity D4 is 6 grams lighter then the Killshot. Also what kind of surface and grip level. My EVO 6 handles great on our bumpy high grip 140'x70' fast flowing track . I like the EVO better then my 418 or 417v5.

My Evo6 is also performing better than my 418. Even though it's heavier and much more off-balance (L to R). I think it's the flex.. Evo6 is very flexy.
