I put some grease on both the pinion gear and on the bevel gear. Do you think maybe I put a lot?

it doesnt matter.all the excess will get thrown off by centrefugal force.i take it u havent run it yet?just run it off the floor for about 4-5 mins of about half throttle then feel it again.if the crackling noise is gone it was just excess grease.and leave it.if its still there then it maybe a build error or sumthing

The 414m blocks gives you a low rollcenter. To get the same rollcenter as the stock evo3 blocks you must add 2 mm spacers underneath the blocks but they will hit the gearbox below the maindriveshaft. Thats why the evo3 blocks look like they do.

Hi everyone,

I just received the TB EVO III (Surikarn Limited Edition) yesterday and I was busy building it almost all the night. It is great with all the red hop ups, titanium staff, etc. included!

I have few queries and will be grateful if you can comment on the following:

- When you assemble the gearboxes, do you have to put a lot of grease on the Bevel Pinion Gear and the Main Ring Gear or just little?

- Once you finish the gearboxes and install the Propeller Shaft, if you turn the shaft with your fingers, does it have to be really smooth? Mine seems to be bit smooth, but makes small cracking noise. Is it normal?

Thanks everyone!
Mine kinda had the same thing. I'm hoping it just has to break in some. I'm going to run a mabuchi motor with an old 3 or 4 cell battery pack and I'll let you know what I come up with.

Hey Davioh, you got the part number for that blue bulkhead brace. Is it me or is it that you cannot look up all the parts on Tamiya's website?

actually the catch with HK is not having one superb LHS but having a bunch all in one area so you can compare prices and if they don't hav what you want in one store you go to the next to find what you want!
