At long last i managed to get some RW spur gears for my EVO III in 64dp and boy do they ever make a differance. Racing at my local Ashby club here in the UK i went from doing 17laps in 317 with motor slowing up in the second half of the race to doing 17laps in 309 and still being able to lap within 2/10ths of my fastest lap on the 17th lap due to no drop off from my stock 27t motor. The 17laps in 309 is a new PB for me too , i have now set new PB's at all the tracks i race at with the EVO III.

The kit spurs and tamiya pinions are too prone to picking up damage as they are too soft which hits performance dadly. Now if all the gear parts are made in the same white material ( the name of which i have forgot ) im sure no other car would stand a chance.

If you want to use the Tamiya servo saver, you can use the part from the losi xxx-s servo saver set and use the 24 spline on the Tamiya servo saver. The red kimbrough seems to be a little weak.

I still use the Tamiya servo saver but I do re-curve the spring washers to keep the dead spot from appearing. If it does re-bend the springs and it takes all the slop out.

A hop-up that is fresh from the Tamiya parts is the new hard ball cups I put them on at Reedy and they make all the difference in freeness in the suspension and also slop, there is virtually none after switching, especially in the steering department. I put them on a M03 yesterday and was amazed how much they lock all the steering down.
