I was just wondering if they would be as good as the Surikarn screws, might make a cheaper spare screw set...

Ok, I'm have kind of a problem. I think I've tried allmost everything to fixs the oneway gear stripping......But unfortunately, I haven't had any succes. So if some one could liste all the things that works.......... it would be a great help.

Anyone have any succes with the alu gear?

(V12: I'm still working on your idea....thanks)

Take care

I dont have part #'s for the shims, but just call Tamiya and ask them for the shims you need.

Try different compounds on your brushes, you will lose power once the batteries start to dump though, no getting around that without going to a lithium pack

Also, work on your drivetrain and make sure there's as little resistance as possible, less drag will help your runtime.

Default bulkhead or ring gear ?

Is it the drivetrain, bulkhead, or the front one-way ring gear that's causing the gear to strip due to impacts. I've seen numerous modifications on front one-ways fail. Have you ever thought that it's not the front one-way, but maybe the whole drive train system ?? True, its fast just like other shaft driven cars, but why is it just this car ? How come the TC3 or the yokomo SD don't have problems like the evo3 ?

A hard compound brush would be the place to start (I honestly dont know all of the different brush #'s out there) but basically stay away from silver. You may also want to gear down a little bit and see if it helps. If you're overgeared, you'll kill your runtime.
