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
Dan,

Do you shim between the shaft bearing on the shaft gear and what size do you use? Is that where the shimming primarily goes moving the shaft gear into the 1-way gear?

Any pictures of the dremel at home work?

Usually I stay on the line don't hit anything. If I go off a dot I let off the throttle. The 1-way is probably the only part of the car I don't like.

Didnt you factory drive for Yokomo or am I getting you mixed up with someone else? Too many names, so little time.

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 too have shimmed the one-way and find that I rarely go through pinion or bevel gears now days.

The Surikarn Limited is the best car I have ever had. From day one, even with the out of the box set up, it was awesome. The one way issue is a little annoying to say the least but once you get it right you will be so happy with the car..

I raced my Surikan for the first time and it is the best car I've owned. Dialed right from the box. However, I am having a hard time getting the kit gears to mesh properly (pinion & spur). It is much more ackward them my TA04. Any suggestions? Also, does anybody know what the largest 48 Pitch spur gear that will fit?

Default Largest Spur Gear

72T / 48 pitch is the biggest so far we can put in without touching the upper deck

Coop and Race Yes I am driving an EVO again and you have the name correct.

I shim both the pinion and the ring. It takes time to do it properly by taking things apart so much but it is the only way to get it correct. You also get a feel for hom much a box or gear needs by doing it. I shim the diffs also as the pinion wears you have to to keep the gears from skipping under braking. As for shim size I believe it is the 5mm shim set it comes in .1,.2,.3 sizes. Also with the assembly and reassembly be careful not to over tighten the 3 screws holding the case front on.

JFC I think Tech has one but I can't remember either.
