yeah Ti is short for titanium.
i think best of all would be to have polished alumuim parts, that would look very professional.
but anything other the the colour of a whores lipstick would be good!

Default Gear Compatibility

Gday guys,

Have just finished the evo 3 S and want to join a local race this weekend. It's stock class (23turn here) so am looking for a pinion in the range 38-40t (to use with the 90t spur). The problem is the only pinion I can find locally is a 39t 64 pitch (GM racing). I realise the 64 pitch is slightly different compared to the Tamiya 0.4 metric gears. A few guys here have recommended to just use the 64 pitch pinion with the Tamiya spur. Would appreciate any comments on this - ie will it work?. Note, it will only be for one race this weekend - after that I will change to the Tamiya pinions (when available).

Thanks

Mick,

Just use the 64pinions, there are no problems, the mesh is so close it doesn't make any difference.

I have ran it without problems before.

i would change the spur as well
in my experence i've found the tamiya ones to soft, even a little peice of sand riped it up,and i was buying a new one after every race meet. i've since changed to using RW racing spurs and
they are much much better, i've had about 5 meets and heaps of pactice time and its still perfect. unless your running on carpet in which case it should be fine.
as for using a 0.4pitch spur with a 64pitch pinion, i don't really know but i've heard it works.
hope i've helped

The diff cases in my EVO3S were worse then the ones I got with my original EVO3. Going to have to get the dremel onto them tonight.

Maybe I was just lucky the first time or unlucky this time.

It's very tempting to go the aftermarket red alloy ones though.
