Mine had that when I first build it but it turned out to be the crown gear on the drive shaft, it wasn't seated properly in the bearing and cause the problem, I just re-seated it and made sure it sat square and no more binding.

Default Whats Beter??? EVO3 or TRF???

I was just joking about the TRF is better thing. my friend has a EVO3 and i have a uprgaded TAO4R so theres a bit of rivalry between Shaft and belt.
ANy ways what is actually better? EVO3 of TRF?

The one that you can drive better is BETTER.

I have a TRF-414M2 and EVO3, while my 414 does seem insanely fast the EVO3 seems easier to drive. It's hard to explain but the EVO3 can corner a lot faster in and out plus with the shaft you defiantly gain a little acceleration.

so are you saying if they hav the same motor, the same battery and the same ESC the 414m2 would go faster but the E3 would accelerate faster and turn corners faster?

Maybe the 414 seems faster because I have had it longer and better know its gearing. They both are quick. The 414 pushes a little going into corners were the EVO3 seems to take them tighter with little or no breaking.

Yes. The belt would stretch under acceleration so it delays the momentum of the car moving forward. On the other hand, shaft has less lag in momentum (ex: pogo action of spring without oil dampening system in your shocks) where whatever input, in this case the motor, it gets, it will delivery it right away with or very little delay.

For every little fraction of seconds per lap you gain by not using your brake during cornering and getting out of the corner quickly, I will choose shaft driven bro! Anyday!!

nothing's been broken on my E3...but u gotta make sure the screws on the bottom are checked like after every run...cuz once i lost some of the suspension balls...and had to replace them with something else....had 2 wait like 2 months till parts came.
