Suspect that's NOT the one way gear.

Probably one of your front CVDs needs rebuilding.

Hey guys I just finished building my EV03S and I noticed that my rear toe is only 2 degrees with the b blocks. I tried swaping the rear carriers and that gave me only one degree of rear toe. I'm a little baffled hear. The manual says that the rear toe should be 2.5 degrees of rear toe with the b block. Also can anyone tell me what the internal drive for the EV03S is. Thanks.

internal drive ratio is 2.6

I never did any measurement if the rear toe in is correct. But from what I heard from other drivers on the XXX-S and the TC3 toe in also differs from what is written on the blocks.

Actually, mine measures exactly 2.5 on the Hudy blocks per side. I believe the hubs are .5 per side so I can't imagine how you came up with 2.0 unless maybe your measurements are off .5 per side. I would build it exactly like the instructions say and don't worry about it...

BTW- I'm betting our buddy P2 is blowing smoke. I can't imagine anyone selfish enough to mention a fix for the main (although minor) problem of a car and leave eveyone hanging. Keep in mind that some people's EVO3s aren't really having the ring gear problem...

Im back from the nationals again.

Former German Champion Marc Rheinard Tamiya EVO3 Surikarn/Team Orion was very fast but finished in 3rd position this time. As he just is 17 years old he is Junior Champion again.

TQ + New German Champion in the Modified class is Team Losi/LRP driver Benni Grschel. He also is a multiple German Champion Offroad and did it again in 2WD one week ago.
Second place went to Team Associated driver Sascha Falter.

Regarding the C1/C2 front uprights I switched to that as in the manual. Thanks guys for the informations about this. It helped a lot. Car was much smoother with it at that track.

Regarding the special oneway made by one of the drivers here I posted last week, I have to say it worked pretty good for me. I had no single broken oneway gear even when I had some very heavy crashes at high speed due to radio interferences. Infact its the first gear since Im using this oneway.

I will post pictures later with the final version of this oneway.

this is a warning to all evo users.
on my evo 3 s u notice batt holes are large and wen i put my batt in some of the shrink had melted on both sides of the pack and was exposed to the carbon fibre chassis and this caused a short and the batts got real hot and they went down to 2v!
i dont no what to do i guess new batts but check ur wrapping for damage.

Yeh its a good idea to superglue the edges of the battery slots or you could suffer a battery meltdown!

OK, here are the pictures from the special oneway made by a local driver. This is the final production unit as Im using currently in my EVO3.
Im very sorry my digicam sometimes dont like making good pictures indoors or Im too stupid for it.

But what you can see is the gear is attached from the other side as its with the TC3. Also the diameter of the oneway is enlarged from outside to inside so the gear will be centered when pushed to the backingplate. The backingplate is almost as large as the gear so it cant warp. Also onewayhousing and backingplate is a onepice unit!
As said before I didnt break an onewaygear since Im using this unit. It even survived my highspeedcrashes into the wall at the nationals caused from radio glitches. As a sidenote the crashes 3 times ended in a undriveable car because of extrem chassis-tweaks.
