The Square ones are good. You can find them on Ebay for around $44.

GT, try this....

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=3139058574

You may have to copy and paste it into your browser. The person selling them is located in Hong Kong, so that might save you a bit of money, instead of shipping from the states.

The yokomo Ti-screwset for the SD is a direct fit for the evo3. I have them on my car and couldnīt be happier They are cheap too, Andy at hobbymania only charges you 35 us-dollars for the set.

Hi everyone and thanks for helping me out with your comments.

As I said, the main shaft was making some small cracking noise when I turn it with my fingers. Yesterday I spent 3 hours trying to solve the problem.

In the end (after almost giving up) I simply moved the shaft a bit with my hands (bit hard), so that it goes in one gearbox more than the other! You know what? Now it is as smooth as anything

I was really happy that it is ok now ... but how can I be sure it will not move again in the wrong position alone?

Yeah, I worked on mine for LONG time. I ran it at 4.0 volts with a old johnson silvercan for about an hour. I put toothpaste on the gears too. I messed with the crown gears a bit, and now it;s very smooth. Just have to let the bearings break in a bit then It's ready!!!!
