Hey J,
I'll buy a kit from you and I don't even have my car yet!!! But that whole "nobody would know the difference" thing has to go. How about......... J-craft ?! I think guy's in the US would buy them as long as quality is up to par and you were honest to say they're" patterned after" someone else's "unavailable in the U.S." parts.

I'll get the same design as Kai version kit in these few days, may be post some photos there when i rec'd them.
i'm sure that it will be easier for those tb 3 user to change spur gear.

hey guys, i did some calculations... stock core motor(26K rpms) with 61/24 pinion on an evo2 runs about 27mph. with the two speed thing, it would jump to 34.6mph...almost an 8mph increase! wow...60 bucks might now be too bad. Imagine an 10turn motors 35K rpms plus the twospeed...UUUUU

Oh, the guy thats selling on ebay is hi_iq

Things that are not so good on the Evo III?... 1. too much chassis flex 2. Std cell reataining system not good for use with saddle or ladder packs.
I've also found some issues with the car after a few more runs, front one way diff gear tends to strip on impact, leaving high spots in the drive train.

Going to a full time 4wd setup might be easier on the gear since the ball diffs will have some play in them which can absorb most impacts. A bigger bumper to absorb the shock would also be useful Of course it would help not to crash into anything in the first place

Having said that, in terms of performance it has a slight edge over my 414m2 in terms of punching out of corners. Top speed is more or less equal. I'm only running a stock motor on a loose ashphalt track so chassis flex isn't a big issue. In my opinion, the car is good but not good enough to ditch a 414m2 for.

I'll be doing the opposite of BK and putting more time into the Evo3 instead of my 414m2 though. Not because the 414m2 is rubbish but because I prefer a punchier car.

But yeah the stripping of the gears is annoying. I've already placed an order for 10 more diff gears

yes, in stock the shaft drive would be an advantage. while drving my Evo i did notice it's punchy response!

10 gears WOW, i ordered a couple of packets with my car, not knowing that the kit included some spare.

Basically I have a friend that is purchasing the kit (has one coming and I don't know from where or how) I was going to try and offset the price of the kit by having some made up to sell. I am not saying it is going to happen I just wanted to know how many people would be interested in it. Of course I would have pics of it and everything.

Default Stripped gears

The issue with the front oneway gear is that you can't overtighten the gear on the one way{will warp it slightly} unit nor leave it loose enough to allow the mounting screws to back out causeing play.Also check you gear box and make sure its snug.I know some will say it binds but this is not a tc3 and you need to snug up the halves together.Not overtighten just enoughto where your sure the halves wont sepperatefrom one another .Also check your sway bar mount and make sure its not overtightened.This will cause the gear box to also warp,so tighten until its snug and then back it out 1/4 turn.I also noticed that you need to use shorter screws for the sway bar mount as the ones that tamiya uses will cause the one way to bind because its actually hits the one way gear because its too long.I stripped a bunch of gears and spent a while trying to figure it out.The gearbox is plastic which is prone to easy warping so be really careful setting it up and you shouldn't have any more problems.One last thing and this is not a slight on anyone but LEARN To DRIVE!Quit hitting stuff. Any car is prone to breaking if its abused.....except maybe an xray!
