I thought I had everyone fixed.
The front pinion was brand new today, pinned it in place so it could not slip off the key.
Set everything up nice, it felt free to turn over the drive train, all the meshes looked and felt good.
So, what happened?
Stripped 2 teeth off the new front pinion.
No reason for it as far as I can see......

Any ideas?
I am going to try for 1 more race day, then it's sold !!!!

THE most simple way to not experience a front stripped gear is to not crash or atleast do not be on power when you land/hit something. It seems like there's been a lot of stripping (read-crashing) lately...perhaps drivers just need to settle down

ah yes not crashing.

Ok, so I have been racing toy cars for 20 years now, seen most things in that time. Been club, local, regional and national champ.

Yes, that must be the problem, crashing......

Ok, let's just say that's not it and maybe just maybe there is something wrong with the car.

Now, anyone got any sensible suggestions?

It is rare that I crash and have no need to setttle down. The last race I was in I could not remember a hard wreck that broke my 1-way. The last time I practiced I was much harder on the car and would let off on the dots, never stripped and did not have a ton of traction. I think under gobs of traction the gear tends to fail.

I cannot remember ever breaking a spur on my M2 due to impact or gobs of traction. The Evo has a problem that maybe a few better parts would take car of.

Then again some of us cannot afford to buy a new car every big race that comes up or let TRF drivers loan us their parts.

Default Simple

Take the gear box,both gears and drive shaft and buy news ones and start over.Thats what I did along with the Jurgen oneway.Guess what?No problems and smooth as silk.50 runs on my new setup with no problems.I know your frustration and am just as mad at Tamiya for not fixing it like they easily could have.But I took the matter into my own hands and Have about 20 oneway gers that I will not need to use now because my problems are fixed.I am not a TRF driver but am friends with Formerly one of Tamiyas best drivers and he even says the car is one of the best out there but because of the problem,He after many years is driving for the company everyone has copied shaft drive from.Don't expect Tamiya to acknowledge the problem because they won't.Actually talking with the customer service guy from Tamiya,its like they have made the stripping problem the consumers complete fault.If you wouldnt hit things,there wouldnt be a problem.....Yada yada yada.Most of us are not Surikarns or David Juns and Jimmy Jacobsens.Oh forgot, he doesnt run for them anymore.Thats a real shame.

I Love my EVO3s.Period.Would more people buy the Jurgen oneway or the Penguin rc backing plate and call it a day already?Hope everyone figures it out soon.

I stripped a gear with it, but I hit stuff and hit stuff hard. I stripped one gear early in practice saturday, but after replacing it the new gear held up for another 7 packs without problems.

They are the best paint jobs that I've never seen hehe...just kidding man. I won't know until tomorrow, I hope. Hey did you ever get a chance to pick up some of that Tamiya "Smoke" tint paint at the Nats? That stuff rocks...and it smells nice (don't ask). I did manage to paint up an IS300 for next weekend and used the tint on that. I hope it's as fast as it looks.
