Default BUilding EVO 3 S

For you who has built the Surikarn Edition. Did you guys had a hard time inserting the shaft thru the small bevel gears, or is it just me? It was so super tight I was afraid I would bend the shaft or warp something, It worked out fine at the end but it would probably difficult to get it out during rebuild. I'm just curious because I don't remember having difficulty inserting the shaft with the original EVO 3. I also wonder if this is intentional to help the one way from stripping.

I didn' have any problems with it. It went in with ease. Its kinda strange that yours was a tight fit.

Hmmm, I even tried all other small bevel gears thinking there is something wrong with molding. I think this is a positive thing, keeping the small gears from moving, but it is just weired specially knowing that mine might be an exception.

How about the part where you slide the aluminum gear holder onto the shaft. Is that also supposed to go on super tight?

If your talking about this part of the kit, everything went on smooth for me.

same here, it was tough inserting the drive shaft through the bevel gear.

the side notes does mention to insert and remove the bevel gear 2-3 times. my guess is to work in the gear so it is easier for removal or have the bevel gear sitting on the drive shaft at a correct position so the gear won't slide off and jam the one way.

my .02 cents...

I'm going to check on that side note. But I ended up doing that anyway trying to make sure it works. I'm just glad I'm not alone. Thanks!
