The diff is most of it and you might find to remove the side to side play you need to put shims on both sides of the diff I think my front box has .1 on the battery side with .4 on the other and .2 on the pinion.
Difuser,

Seems like 10mm shims are the ones for the 1-way. For the pinion do you use a 6mm set, seems like the 5mm is too loose?

I must be thinking about this the wrong way, but 10, 6 and 5 MM are huge amounts to be shimming anything in the gearboxes of these cars.

Anyone got a pic so we can see how this is done?

Also, anyone else here live in Canada and having a horrible time getting parts?
My front diff has been on order for over 4 months now!!!
So trying to replace the shaft and pinions to get the car race worthy again for next week isn't looking good........

A complete frontdiff isnīt available. You have to order parts according to the manual.
If you have that problems you should contact shops like Speedtech or Rainbowten. International shipping costs more but I think these should be fast enough. I wonīt wait 4 months.

Yes I know a complete diff is not available yet, but I also know all the part numbers required to make one. SO, my local shop thought it would be ok to get 3 of the parts in for me, but didn't get the rest, hence the reason I am still waiting......

And yes, I might give those guys a try, although I did complain directly to the Canada distributor and got an e-mail back already saying they will try to help me out.
Fingers crossed........

Talking A couple of pics

Hi Guys,

Now I've got the bodywork painted up and on the car, I thought I'd let you have a look at the "finished item" - still need a servo and an ESC - should be coming soon!

This is my usual bodywork colour - taken from the 60s Lotuses.

Default Bumper for EVO II

I am not sure...but I think the bumper from the Tamiya TG10R Nitro car will work on the EVO III.

anybody have any problems with the suspension (A-arms) binding? I am having one hell of a time with 3 of them. The other is perfect, when I lift up the car, it comes down smooth and quick. the others kind of sit there for a second or two and then slowly come down. I have taken the whole thing apart, cleaned it with motorspray, and I still can't find the bind. aaarrgghh!!

Sorry, I was referring to the Inner Diameter of the shims. Like 10mm I.D. would come in 3 different widths .1, .2 & .3mm, if using the Tamiya ones. Not 10mm the size of width needed to shim.

If I needed 10mm to shim the Evo I would drop it like a hot potato and race my M2 some more.

Just need to know or find the part ## of the shims for the driveshaft/bearing/pinion gear.....

Another option is getting the Tamiya foam bumper block material 53415. It costs around $3 bucks and I just ordered some through a hobbyshop. I have cut them custom for each different body style I use using a #11 x-acto blade. It may not be factory looking but it does the job.

not so much stripped though it's just that the pinion gear comes off the shaft at an angle and locks the front end up.
It only does it indoors on carpet with foams... I guess more traction? and more stress?

Also I am running the Kai chassis.. if the holes were out even just by a thou or 2 would this cause the problem?
I was having the same problem the other night. What I did was CA the bearing in the front diff to the housing. I also took out some of the fore/aft slop in the shaft by placing a small piece of solder in the rear pinion so that the shaft does not go into the pinion as far as it used to. It seemed to hold up tonite.

Yeah I did the superglue trick too, didn't last even 1 full heat.

But if this is happening, can we find a long term fix.

It really is tempting me back to TC3 land.....

You cannot use the square center posts with the tech racing prop shaft. Rick
