Default New Oneway.

Alright.I finally put the new one way to the ultimate test and it past with flying colors.I raced carpet last night{Brutal main }and after the main I pulled the oneway out for inspection.The gears had no wear what so ever.

I must say this now,that either this oneway or maybe the penguin r/c backing plate will work.When I get the penguin r/c plate I will know then.But the Oneway from Jurgen is absolutely awsome.It was worth every penny.Some may say that buying ring gears is not a problem and replacing them is a fact of life.Well this will help 99.9 percent and maybe truely be the fix.I just couldn't bring myself to put tc3 gear conversion in,so now I really won't have to.

My buddy Jimmy Jacobsen{probably one of Tamiya's drivers with the most raw Talent} was saying that if they could fix this,this car would be perfect.Oh well,especially since he no longer runs for them .If tamiya would just step up and address this issue like the private sector has,maybe they wouldn't have so many people jumping ship with this car.I am not giving up on it.I don't have to now.Anyways,contact v12 for any info if you want Jurgen to make you one or email me for the info.By the way,If anyone needs an absolutely dialed Carpet setup on rubber tires,let me know.

Default Tamiya TRF Shock question

Good day,

I dont know if this has been discussed before, so I hope you guys won't mind answering my question:

The TRF shocks that comes with the Evo3 has a plastic shock collar which I would like to change to an aluminum one. Any aftermarket or compatible aluminum shock collars (w/ o-ring) you can recommend?

Thanks in advance!

Check out the ones made by Square, they do use an o-ring.

So it seems the custom oneway works very good not only for me.
Sometimes I think people here at the forum donīt believe what Iīm saying regarding this oneway. I donīt know who bought this oneway since now but I know Alan from the UK and racenut are using it with the same results.

I believe the penguin r/c backing plate will work something better than the Tamiya as itīs much larger. But you will still have the design flaws of the Tamiya oneway regarding gear at the false side and gear not centered. Especially the last is a big problem.

I do know of most changes and modifications available at the moment but some of them wonīt work completely as you would like.
There are some prototype gears from Tamiya looking very similar to a Barracuda gear. I do have one but I didnīt use it as it donīt work with the custom oneway. Also I know it will break with the Tamiya oneway in a hard crash. This was also with a custommade three piece driveshaft.

There also is the Product D aluminium gear. It seems to work OK from what I have heard but it also wonīt work with the custom oneway and itīs heavier so Iīm not trying it currently. But maybe you will having troubles with the little pinion gear as the gear again wonīt be centered with the Tamiya oneway.

The Square gearboxes have a great look and Iīm using them as I donīt like the soft plastic from the original gearbox but they donīt help anything regarding the gearproblems.

In the next days I have to built another EVO3 as Iīm running two classes now and then I have to try at least the aluminium gear. But I think I will buy another custom oneway for this EVO3 also.

Hi...

I just heard that tamiya is finaly testing a solution to the oneway gear problem. They made some gears that are a lot thicker and have are shaped, so that the carbon backing plat fits into the gear.... Steen Graversen has a pair.... But does anyone know when the tamiya people are planing on selling them?

Ok. I'll post them on my site as soon as posible, because I haven't been able to find them on teamorions site. I think they deleted them again.

My site is www.swebs.dk ,but it is nor up yet. I'm hoping it will some time today.

Or else I'll let you know.

No..... Not any more, he put in the original drivetrain after the CS-cup. So it will fit perfectly

Take care

That's very good, finally rather than making custom setups, or buying aftermarket 1-ways, you can just run the car out of the box

I think that should be the same prototyp gear as the one I got also. Looks much better but from what I have seen it breaks also. But thatīs not the fault of the gear but the design flaws of the oneway.
So I didnīt use it and stick with the custom oneway as this is working.

But I donīt think Steen will just use the new gear without the changes he has done to gearbox and other things he was using before.

i find that the stock front one-way is abit heavy. maybe work on a light weight version might help alittle.

just my 2 cents
