The Penguin plate helped a lot, but I still managed to strip the gear. But I had to hit the walls a lot to do that. The way I hit it, it would've broken other parts on other cars. So I'm happy with the outcome. Really good $7 mod.

In some of the German forums I've been reading, someone came up with a solution which involved placing a bearing in the part A8 (where the shaft drive goes through before entering the front gearbox).

The idea was that it stabalises the shaft. The proposed solution stated that you must put a little CA glue on the outside ring of the bearing to hold it into part A8.
Everyone who tried this fix had no problems afterwards.

Anyone tried this here?

Cheers, Mark.

Try this link for the chassis set. Good value with the Aussie dollar so high....

Are the surikarn shock towers exactly the same as the original shock towers minus the section for the upper links? The shock holes have not been changed to a different geometry/angle have they?

Not sure about the Angles etc. I think they are the same but have not had the original ones to compare..

I need some more help with part numbers again. My caster block pins (the long pins that the wheelbase spacers and ball thingos go into) are bent.

I need some part numbers but I have so far seen 4 or 5 different part numbers for what I think are the equivalent pins for the ta04,414x and evo 2/3. I think some of these sets come with some other things i dont need??

GTMilenko--

The part number for the Surikarn kit front bumper is 0445987.



Ooj--

A friend of mine has the EVOIII and the Surikarn EVOIII. He compared the shock towers off each kit. You are correct in assuming that the only difference is the deletion of the camber link mounts on the Surikarn towers. Everything else matched up perfectly (according to him).

If I read your post correctly on the long hinge pins (the ones that connect the arms to the inner blocks where the wheelbase spacers go), just use the part number off the kit's instruction manual (50990).

I have both the Surikarn EVOIII and the 414M. I bent one on the Surikarn car and replaced it with extras that I had when I got my 414M. They are identical, yet the part number for that item listed in my 414M manual is 9805741.

I cannot comment on whether the hinge pins listed on the 04 are the same or not as I do not own that car.

However, if you look at the arms that are used for the 04, they are used in the 414 series and the EVO series as well (same part number too, 53427 as listed in both 414 and EVO manual). Thus, I would probably say that the 04 inner hinge pins would more than likely fit your EVOIII.

Hope this helps,
DT

The TA04 inner hing pins are shorter than the 414/evo 3 ones. The outer ones are the same length. Rick

There has been a lot of talk about Tamiya making bevel gears with stronger materials. Does anyone know if this is true and if so, when will they be releasing them?
