I never had a ballcup coming off since now with my EVO3. But there are some new low friction ballcups made of a harder plastic. I think itīs #53601.

Default Diff Question

Hey guys,

I'm having to much trouble with the one way so i'm building up a diff, I searched back through the threads and found the list I need for it, but according to the suppliers at work, the thrust washer you need is discontinued (the one for the 04). Does anyone know how to obtain it or has it changed part number?

If they have changed part number, can someone give me a news list of part numbers to use? thanx.

matt

Default bloody good question

very good question, wish i knew the answer, apprantly they are, but hey, who knows, i'll ask our local tamiya guru when I see him next (owns every damn tamiya car ever made, usually 2 of each lol)

but in the mean time, the only way I can think of doing it is buy the 04 dif set and taking parts from that :S

Matt, I had to special order the thrust bearings here in Japan. Kawada has a diff kit that will work. It comes with the bolt, spring, thrust bearing, and nut that fits the EVOIII diff. You have to also get the bearings. Hope you can find the parts you need.

oh well, I can't wait that long to get it from japan (i'm in australia) i'll buy the 04 diff and use the parts out of that, i have an 04 anyway so i'll uses the other bits as spares, you know the piece of plastic that slides down into the diff, where the locknut sits, is that the same for the 04 as it is for the evo?

Toe-in block: A-C (depends on traction)

Car is kinda twitchy... I want to play around with shock oils and o-rings in the shocks next.
I changed to 60/50 (f/r) oil weight and the car was perfect now.

Looks like a diff adjusting tool similar to what I have. It fits in the slots in the outdrives to hold them steady while you check the gear slip.

I could be wrong though....

aah, yes, I guess it could be for that. It was Square's website listed as Evo 3 stuff, I would have thought that it would have been a part for the car itself. That tool is somewhat universal...
