Rcspeedo.
I'm a bit lost, What bearing would the screw hit, or were the screws too long when it went through the gear and through the mount?
.8 is way too much I haven't seen that much before. usually about .3
Yes let me know what you find. I'll see you next weekend let me what you find then. I'm not sure if I can race. I'll be in Bellingham on Saturday night, at a company xmas party. And got suckered into staying the night up there. But I will still stop in at Burien if I don't race.

Well guys it took forever, but I think the front gear problem is finally fixed. I ran the car with a diff (carpet- no oneway) and the gears look new. I need to take some pictures and test it with a oneway somewhere to be sure, but be looking for the fix. It's pretty simple.

You don't think it is the result from moving bearings inside the box? (I mean the hole is slighly bigger than the bearing).

Anyway, whatever tips and tricks you do, it is still a shaft driven car.. problem always on bevel gears and tourqe steer but yes they do have some advantages over belt driven (which I believe less hassle to play with).

Hi All...Here's some stuff I picked up in Japan. Sorry Dan, all the stuff you requested was sold out by the time I got to it (remember there were like 20 other guys looking for the same stuff )

Thumbs up

Congrats Rod!

I sent you a pm awhile back, dunno if you got it, basically asking you about the EVO3 setup you posted awhile back.

Cool stuff you got there!



tamiyarcracer: The screw was too long once it screws into the gear and into the mount. I can still feel a bit of clearance on the gear mesh after shimming the spool with the .8 - 10 m. It could just be the gbox.

Pyramid: Could be, but it will still be the gbox that needs replacing, the bearings are snug, I tried moving the spool forward and back, no movement. I'll have to look into this further.

Default Tech Racing 3 Piece Shaft......

Finally got my Tech Racing three piece shaft today....

It certainly is no light weight with the centre piece being alloy and the two end pieces of the shaft being made from solid steel.

Comes with a bearing for the front upper deck brace (the one that currently has no bearing in it) and a new red alloy spur gear holder.

One thing for certain though, it is very solid and its floating centre shaft design should aid in preventing bending in extreme impacts.

Can't wait to get the other $200 Bucks worth of Square and Tech goodies I'm about to order for my EvoIII Surikarn (my Xmas gift to myself )

I think it really sucks for tamiya to come out with so many new kits just as soon as you buy the newst one. it becomes old.
Just my 2 cents

naa i dont agree, look at the 414 when the evo3 came out, they are still btoh around competitvely! even with whispers of the 415.
i think 415 and evo4 are just the children
