From what I have heard so far only difference is they are graphite reinforced but not machined.

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

I guess I am confused on the 1-way thing. Someone said on a previous post that the 1-way problem has been solved.

I really don't think it is solved if the part that fixes the problem is sported by a TRF driver, not mass produced and only available to TRF. I don't think it is solved if the part has to be picked up via a different manufacturer. What happens to the guys that race the Tamiya series with after market parts....

In my experience using the 1-way backing plate does not seem work, maybe it does but, you can still chew em.

I have seen some good pictures in the past on other fixes. What and how are some of the fixes that people have made that seem to work with these soft & bad 1-way gears.

details, details, details & pictures if you please......

Just raced last night with my EVO 3se and the new penguin front one way plate and it worked great! I got stuck in a heat with a couple of new guys and it held up unlike at the TCS nats. Went through 4 out there> Well worth the 6.99!!!!
Evo's finished 1,2.

ok guys im stuck now!

im planing on giveing my drivetrain a nice update.

Firstly get a 3 piece propshaft as hopefully the pinions should have a nicer fit.

Then im not sure weather to get the penguin backing plate or the One way from GGermany as it looks sweet. I want a fix to last me good and proper and i can use it in nats next year.
Is it worth getting a Spool aswell?

Last question is it worth doing nothing and waiting for a new Evo? ( please say no )

any1 tryed the spool

Coop, on my side I very rarely go through the 1-way gears in the car. Where I noticed the gears stripping is on dot jumps and hard wall brushes where the axle catches the barrier. In other words on high load high traction hits. I also watched how I am driving to help the gear last longer(note not fool proof). I found that with the diff properly shimmed it almost always eliminates the stripping that does not mean shim the diff today and in 6 months it will be the same perfect lash. It means checking between race days and re-shimming as neccessary.
I have heard the rumor on the gears also but no official word on them yet. As far as the uber gearboxes special material gold plated blah blah blah. There are always special parts for the big guns look at Masami's gold SSG car at Reedy. The boxes in question are nothing special the material might be slightly different but not by much the special machine work you could do yourself with an hour and a dremel just not as pretty. The things looked like any other box, just a slight bit of relieving to free the bearings up. Nothing to help support the gears. As it was the special rear hubs Dave and Jimmy ran on the first days were off the car b the end of the weekend because they were just to hard on the outdrives

EVO buy it now and drive it the car is worth it just find your own way that you prefer around the very minute issues. How many national and world titles has the car won with this oh my god freak out problem. I watched Surikarn blow up 3-5 of the TRF special spools at Reedy and one of the TRF engineers ended up taking some of our spools back with them.

i thought id mention... i have hardly ever had any trouble with a diff in the front, till a lil while back. stripped both of the small gears in the box. a lot of that cam form the looseness of the bearings in the gearboxes. after about 5 months running every weekend, the bearings for the driveshaft have a lot (!) of slop as they sit in the boxes. like the holes are too big. that will allow for plenty of deflection causing the gap to be too large... any ideas?

Replace the boxes if you are racing the car every weekend they just take too much abuse. I think the parts tree is about 12.00 You could also try Teflon tape around the bearing but to me it would be too much of a pain. My first EVO the I replaced the both boxes after 4 months racing 2 times a week.
