How do cut them out? Do you remove the whle round back portion of the gear or do you cut them to contour to each tooth? Thanks

Do not use any shims in this area. If you do you WILL strip, or even chip the teeth on one of the gears. When you do this you loose the horizontal mesh between the ring and pinion gears. Meaning the diff can slide out of the case that much more. I actually used sand paper (to level the case top and botton faces) to allow this cover to sit more flat and tighter on the case and shock tower. My chassis is just as free as any other EVO III out there, no binding in this area. Well ok peter's might be better only cause of his alloy cases.

This is the problem a lot of people have had with thier EVO III's. The best solution I heard, is the cutting of the backing on the pinion (crown) gear for the diff. When you hit something the shaft moves forward, and the backing of the pinion gear pushes on the ring (diff) gear, and separates the gear mesh (if you are on the throttle, the shaft is still trying to rotate, and chips a tooth). The solution I and many others have used, is to use a sharp pair of side cutters, and remove all backing behind the teeth on the gear, then re-shim the diff with the 10mm shims now available from Tamiya. Just to make sure, when looking at the pinion gear from the front you see the teeth, but the back of the gear is round, cut the round part away! Do this only on the front gear though.

thanks , i'll do that. i noticed when i check the diff by holding the spur and one front wheel ,i turn the other wheel and it will click easy even without the spacers i talked about.

Default Servo saver

has anyone experienced a little play on the servo saver? what other servo savers are available that can prevent the play? I already used the white and black servo savers but there's still a little play.

Thanks.

The first thing I did when I recived the car was buying a new servo saver.. I think the original one is pure crap. Anyway, I bought a Kimbrough servo saver, it works perfectly!

Just watchout that you use the top middle hole if you install it.

Default Icelandic nats round 2

The second round of the Icelandic nats was held this weekend in grate weather although we got a little bit of rain in the first A finals.

I was TQ after qualifying after setting a record lap time. I then ended up second after the first final, first in the second final and again first in the third and last final! So I won the second round of the Icelandic nats with my Tamiya TB Evolution III.


Not a bad weekend for me and my record braking Tamiya.

I just wanted to thank you guys with my "three questions" last week! Thanks guys!

Regards,
Andri Orn Vidisson

hey guys, i was looking through rcmodel.com's site and found that they have titanium bones/shafts for the evo 3... you think they'd make a big impact on performance?
I was also thinking of maybe getting Acer's nitride ceramic bearing kit for my evo3... wonder if they'd be better than the ones it has now... hmmmm

Their website is here: http://www.kimbrough-products.com and the servo savers are here: http://www.kimbrough-products.com/servosvr.htm I bought one that looks just like the one on the picture on the servo saver page - the mid-size.

Hope this helps.
