lol.xray what a joke.

i dont run any lubricant in my evo3 but if i did id probably run oil instead of grease.

As BK said, Yes i do drive an Xray... brilliant car!
BUT... I'm currently testing an Evo 3 and as it turns out it's a pritty
damn good car but i think i need to sort out the slightly binding and brittle drive train and i will probably end up using it instead
im amazed on the amount of corner speed it has in comparison
to the xray.

both cars are definatly not boring. maybe a corally... is... LOL...

Any idea where to get the following:

Lightweight (such as titanium) Wheel Axle for the universal shafts of the TB EVO 3

Thanks

Another question for you guys:

When I take a hold of the wheels (front or rear), I can pull and push them out sideways about 1 or 2mm. It seem the dogbone adaptors are too long - it this normal (without the wheels it's the same - 1 or 2mm sideways movement, so it's not that the wheels are loose)

Cheers, Mark.

You can use these to shim any slop in the wheel axles. Don't shim too much or you'll bind the axles.

Item 53586 4mm Shim Set 10pcs. x 3 types
Item 53587 5mm Shim Set 10pcs. x 3 types

I forgot which ones are for the axle. If anybody knows, please refresh my memory.

Thanks

1 or 2mm seems a little bit much to me. Maybe it seems so but I canīt believe itīs really that much.
Iīm using just one of the thickest 5mm shims on each wheel axle. I think the thickest shim is 0.3mm and goes between outer bearing and the 2mm pin.

And the second with the axel pushed back in.

I think the gap is more like 0,5mm

Cheers, Mark.

Yes itīs exactly the same. So a 0.2 or 0.3 thick shim should work also for you. #53587 for 5mm axles.

If youīre buying in Germany the link below to Friedel is about the cheapiest shop for Tamiya.
