I did the writeup on the TC3 gear, and Rocketron gave me the advice on how to do it. Both of us found that it actually freed up the drivetrain, with tires on, and the motor unattached, I got a 27 count on wheel free spin Never seen that with anything else I've owned...

If you can actually find someone who has the 3 piece tech shaft then grab it QUICK!!

I have been told that Tech have just sent out the last order of the 3 piece shaft. They are officially discontinued......

If you don't like it I guarantee you will find someone who will take it off your hands.
Mine is on its way as I speak..

Each Evo kit is a limited edition. So there is always a limited run. Because the car keeps evolving Tamiya continues to release limited runs of each step of the evolution.

As for parts you can always call Tamiya direct and order parts. The number is 1-800-Tamiya-a. Their operators are always very helpfull and you can also get technical support on all their cars as well.

The prices they charge are reasonable and you can always get parts that many of the distributers (like Tower) do or will not carry because of the quantity of part numbers.

Hi Everyone ...

The graphite shaft I managed to find was the following:

G STYLE TB20003 TEAM BOMBER EVO3 LIGHT WEIGHT CARBON CENTRE SHAFT

Although I never had problems with the front one way of the TB EVO 3 I want to buy an alternative which is lighter

Is there another one way on the market, which is actually lighter

Hi again

Also ... what do you think of the ceramic bearings compared to the blue sealed ones that come with the Surikarn Edition?

Summary

- Do ceramic bearings really improve performance?
- Any good lightweight one way available on the market?

If you're looking for those extra few tenths per lap. Ceramics do help.

I am looking for maybe 0.30 of a second each lap (about 15 secs). Can ceramic bearings really help a bit?

I just got the Tech Racing 3 piece shaft set on my car and it really helps with the stripping problem. Plus, the shafts extend deeper in the crown gears, so they don't strip from the inside like the orginal shaft. Damn good investment! This will save me a lot of money and frustration at the end.
