davioh - diff's are easier to drive, not better, infact a oneway "should" be faster.
you have a evo just look at how the oneway works its very easy to see/understand how it is different from a diff.

by the way my sandpaper spool held up fine at my race meet.
i find the spool very easy to drive, i find a oneway difficult(but very fast when i'm going well.)

not sure if this story is true or not. my local hobby store said that tamiya is testing or maybe thinking of releasing a special version of the Evo III with SSG parts.

Will there be a Evo III special in the near future?

that would be something to look forward to

madjack,

what was that?

I think with that diologue you could probably confuse your way for your first win.

Yeah John I have been running them like that since Feb I needed better breakaway on the diff on carpet and built them that way and have stayed with it on a loose surface it can get a touch skatey but I use it 90% of the time

Default CHASSIS QUESTION

Hi all.
Sorry to butt in, but I had a Question I was hoping someone could answer.

Does anyone know if the TB Evo 3 lower chassis can be used on a TB Evo 2. I am having a little trouble getting a spare TB Evo 2 lower chassis for back up for the future.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Steevo

The surikarn edition doesn't contain SSG. I'm sure at some point they will release the carbon fibre parts in SSG.

But how cool would it look with SSG and the red anodised alloy bits, specially parked next to the TRF04.
