The best place to generate your own gear ratio/roll out chart is here- Rcracing.com gear ratio page

Remember the EVO3's internal gear ratio is 2.6

Your Webpage shows that the lower chassis is out of stock Steve. Is this true? It already sold out?

Default Gears !!!

I have been told that it is possiable to use TC3 diff gears in the EVO III gear box to help the car run more freely. As mine still seems to have a tight spot no matter how many times i rebuild the diffs i would like to know if this is true and if so what parts are used on the ball diff and the one-way diff.

Weekend racer, I've done it using the new yellow material ring gears, and it doesn't work all that well. There seems to be something more that is missing. With the TC3 ring gears, the mesh isn't correct and it wears the top edge off of the ring gear teeth, then those fine white slivers get into everything else and casue some binding. Hopefully I will get the chance to try some new stuff out soon that may help. I'm not sure...

Hi there every1? im new at TB Evo III. my drive is not that smooth as TC3 but seems ok after reinstalling the shaftgear. it doesn't sit properly the half round hole. I use matrix silicone lube for the bearing. Now i can push the Evo III and it never stop till it hit something.

Now my real question is regarding my new Quantum LRP ESC. Which mode i should use? the default is map 2=for offroad. I don't think thats correct for our use. pls advice friends thanks.

Hey Guys,

1st run at Tamiya today with my Evo3 S. Not a bad car..i slowly changed setups to get it going. I think for my driving, running the car with the stock springs/swaybars make it handle too sluggish. I am gonna try stiffening it up next week and see what it does.

Rod, thanks for the tips man!

Default Evo3 noise

Hi guys.....

I bought the Evo3 S. 2 weeks ago and I'm still fine adjusting it, but it runs very well....

I was wondering if anyone found a smart trick to get the spurgear to sit tight on the driveshaft. Mine seems a bit loose, and it makes a lot of noise when driving...

Any ideas???

The Spur gear SHOULD sit tight on the shaft,but the shaft should move up and down a few millimeters.

What I mean is that the spur + alu. holder doesn't sit tight on to the driveshaft, because it is only put on with the little metal tap through the hole in the shaft. This means that the spurgear can be moved back and forth and up and down.... Se what i mean on the attached file.

How can it move up and down? the shaft is simialr diameter to the hole in the spur gear holder.

There is a tiny bit of play back and forth but it's no biggy.

Have you actually build it?

I don't see how the shaft could move up and down in the spur gear holder unless the hole the bearing sits in was defective or the bearing itself was defective. Also check if you used the right sized holding pin to secure the spur gear to the shaft.
