Rod, by properly, do you mean on a drill press so you can lock the chassis down and center the countersink perfectly?

...still waiting to get beat down by a surikarn car so that I can build mine hehe.
My Surikarn will be here Wednesday- so if you come to Memphis this weekend I'll be happy to give you a reason to build yours...

Hehehe- sorry, just couldn't resist. However, I would luuuuv to cmoe to the TCS Nats and get beat down by you Cali guys- that track looks sooo sweet.

Yes, one of the guys at Tamiya countersunk all of my top decks using a proper bit and a drill press. I'm not sure what size the bit is but he got it at mcmaster.com and it perfectly matches whatever countersinking the chassis has. He said that it is important to set the depth of the bit first so that you don't enlarge the holes if you go too far down and then just countersink away!

Yeah, the surikarn cars are really nipping at my heals. This last weekend, a surikarn car won two of the throwdowns but I won overall with more points. It's getting very nip and tuck and my EvoS is like half way built...just looking for a reason to finish it

Dude, cruise out...we're slow hehe. One of the secrets to the Tamiya track is knowing what your car will do on the curbs and not being afraid to go up on them from time to time. Another key to the track is the Es's. If you set it up right you can really gain a lot of time and it sets you up for the straight. Lap of the gods materiel but if you get it wrong...hurting!

I have looked for those pictures and downloaded from the camera to the computer. Unfortunately most of the pictue of the gearbox are worse but there is one picture left and 4 of the carīs driveshaft. I just saw the maximum attachment is 200 kb so I have to reduce the size first. Hope I get it working as I never have done before. Iīm no expert for those picture things.

OK, here we go. As it seems I have to post each of the pictures seperately as I didnīt get them smaller. All of the pictures below are from the Touring Car Euros showing Steen Graversenīs (Denmark) EVO3 with complete Yok SD transmission.

Iīm sorry but all other pictures from inside the gearbox are very worse. I donīt know what happened. But what you can see from picture 5 Steen is using gear and complete differential from the Yok SD. Same is at the front for the oneway.
